Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great week! I'll keep my message rather short today because I'm already low on time! 

We had a lot of ups and downs this week, but one of the highlights this week, was our experience with a new family. We've been knocking on doors of this one road for the past few weeks now and it never seems to fail us. Almost all of our current investigators live on the same road these days! We stopped at this one house, all the houses here in Brazil have a gate in front. and in this case the house wasn't visible because of the nice brick wall they have in front of their house. We hit the intercom and we talked to the mom about visiting another day to share a message. That was on Monday. Tuesday we came back and met the mom, her daughter in law, and her son. They loved the message of the restoration so much that they wanted us to come back as soon as possible. We came by on Thursday and taught the Gospel of Christ and invited them all to baptism. They all accepted and are really excited to learn more about the church and the Book of Mormon. The mom told us that she read the chapter we left her that very first night we were there and felt the Spirit so strongly. She prayed and recieved a clear answer that the Book of Mormon is true. The mom also testified to the rest of the family what had happened. She said she really loved the message we shared and that she actually has interest for the first time to read from the scriptures. She said that our message was really real, and that we don't force people to see what we see. 

I love all of you so much, and please keep this family in your prayers.

Elder Siebers
