Hello Everyone! This week was fantastic! We had investigators at church yesterday! Its a family that we had found this week. A little 7-yearold girl on the street asked us if we talk about Jesus. We responded yes. Then she said "could you come to my house then". We said we would and followed her to her house. We met her mother and her brother and left the message of the Restoration. She said she had been to a lot of churches, but none that she saw that had the truth. We promissed her that if she prayed she would be able to know that what we taught is true. She´s pregnant and couldn´t make it to church alone so we got a member to bring her. She came with her two children. Her husband is in Campo Grande, but he will be able to come when he gets back. She participated in the Principles of the Gospel class making comments and her kids made friends with the other primary kids. It was really great. So I guess the world is going to end here in a little. I wonder what people will do. Some people will do crazy things when they think the world is going to end. Marc

Hello Everyone, It was a good week. We had a lot of people who said they would go to church this week and a lot of dates for baptism marked. Unfortunately none of them went, but we are still excited to work hard. This week we will try to get a member to bring people to church in his car. Our district president is really excited, just he doesn´t know what to do, so we are going to use him a lot to get the missionary work going here. This week was exciting with the wild life. I got to see monkeys, lizards, and an aligator. I´ll send you all some pictures of them. This week everyone will go to Cuiabá for Christmas conference. I'm excited for that. I like to travel. It's a long bus ride though. Anyway. That's all for this week. I love you all. Good luck with all the Christmas traditions! See yah in a couple years! Elder Skiles

Hello Everyone, Christmas is coming! It's pretty exciting. It's cool to be here in Lucas for Christmas. It's a smaller, quieter city; so they can put up christmas lights in the park and on the county house without them getting stolen. It's really cool. It's weird to hear about everyone going on missions. None of our investigators where able to go to church this week, but next week we should have lots of investigators at church. We are going to travel to Sorriso for district meeting today. That should be good. Next week will be Christmas Zone Conference in Cuiabá. I´m pretty excited about that. I still haven´t opened my christmas presents yet. I´m waiting till christmas day, but curiosity is killing me. My companion and the other missionaries in our house think I´m crazy for waiting. I don´t know how its going to work with the christmas call yet. I think it will just be on the cell phone though. I love you all. See yah in a couple years! Marc
