69. Alcantara, Rio de Janeiro

3 November 2014
This was another solid week for us here in Alcantara! It was another strange feeling to be completely secluded from major holidays like Halloween, the strangest  part was that I didn't even feel like it happened. But, I hope you had a Happy Halloween!
The highlight this week goes to X. We had left to teach some investigators with our Ward Mission Leader. We had just left a lesson and were planning our next stop when we received a phone call from him. The call didn't come through right, and he attempted twice more to call. We were close to his house so I said "Vamos lá!" We had initially marked for 7:30 that night so we thought he may have just wanted to remark to cancel the lesson. We got there in 2 minutes and his look on his face when we got there so quickly was priceless. He informed us that he had been reading Moroni 10:32-33 and felt the need to talk to us sooner. The night before he had read and had incredible desire to show up at the chapel but didn't because he didn't know if anyone would be there.. (we were....) We had an incredible lesson with him and confirmed that once more he had felt the Spirit that urged him to come unto Christ and believe in the message of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thats really all for the big news here. I love this ward, this area and my awesome companion so things are going swimmingly!

(NOT the hospital where Cooper was treated last month.)

I love all of you so much!
Have a great week!

Elder Siebers
