Dear Mom, 

First of all, I really liked the pictures of the weekend for dad’s birthday. Our family is so awesome. Also, congratulate Mason and Chris for their smarts and Anna for her personality!

We had another killer week. I love the mission! 

Elder Horton and I
Last Sunday we celebrated Ailton's(recent convert) birthday with a Brasilian bbq and cake!  He is so awesome and committed to the gospel.  He is coming to church every week in a suit and tie and has changed a lot since the first day that we met him. Brasilian bbq's are different than American. They just get a lot of steaks and other meats, dip it in rock salt, and then grill it up over a wood fire. It’s delicious, and we get to eat like kings.  

We got a new Elder in the office! Elder Horton is now being trained to be the next financial secretary when Elder Bunch goes back to the field. He's from Lehi, Utah and way cool. I took a picture with him really quickly so that you could see him.

Also, we have an incredible investigator named Robson that we have been teaching since last week! He lives in some crazy circumstances. When he was a kid he grew up in an orphanage, and a nice Dutch lady took care of him because his actual parents couldn't. When he turned 18, he couldn’t stay there anymore and had to go back to his house, which is full of really awful influences. He has been there for 7 years now and had fallen into the temptations a few times. Since we have started teaching him he has left everything behind. He said that he felt like he was home at church and could actually feel the love of the members, which is difficult for him to feel at his house. He's reading the Book of Mormon diligently every day and has already finished 1 Nephi and all of our teaching pamphlets! Tomorrow we have stake conference and he'll be baptized after the meetings!

Good news too: They found Cristian! He's safe and sound.

This week I went on splits with Elder Lutz, my MTC companion, in Divinópolis! That was awesome. It’s a lot more fun teaching people now that we speak some Portuguese.

I love you,

Elder Marsh
