Elder Anderson, the World Cup and Commandments

So, I was thinking that we weren't going to get an email from our Elder this week.  I was wrong.  Yay!  Sounds like he had a good birthday and a wonderful conference with Elder Anderson.  Also, I know that he is starting to write in Portuguese first. Let me know if I'm missing something good!
From Elder Darke:

  ENGLISH (sort of) :D
    This week was super fantastic!  We Had a Meeting with Elder Anderson (amazing!) did some service (super fun :D) and we traveled to the far end of our area to find some less active members :D  Neither of us knew where we were, exactally :D.  Also everyone is preparing for the world cup, its going to be crazy :D.
    Saturday almost all of the missionaries went to the chapel in Aza Sul to have a meeting with Elder Anderson specifically to the missionaries.  My companion and i were almost late because the bus that we needed to use was being really difficult and it didnt pass by our city.  So we had to get creative :D.  The meeting was really amazing :D.  Elder Anderson talked alot about how we could be better misionaries and it was really helpful :D.  All the Brazilians were really excited to see Elder Anderson becuase this is probably the first time for many of them to see an Apostle. :D.  All of the missionaries were really well beheaved for this meeting though, so it was really good :D.
    My companion and I have been helping a member in our Branch paint his house for a little bit of time.  This week as well :D.  it went really well and we also have the chance to teach his wife about the gospel becuase she is not a member but she wants to be :D.  So we will help her :D.
    Estancia, our area, is huge.  Normally we work in one side of the city (it is split into two parts by a river that runs in the middle of it).  We have less actives on the other side of the river though so we decided to walk to the other side and find these less actives.  Though we didnt find many of these less actives, we did get to know our area a lot better, even though we were really lost for a good portion of that day :D.    We have an investagator here that has been going to church for like 6 or more weeks.  However she doesnt know her address, and every time we tried to go with her to find her house she was doing something else, or something came up.  Anyway it took forever to find her house.  We finally found it the other day though so we are going to teach her, and then if she wants, babtise her (it will be great). :D
    Everyone is preparing for the world cup here though.  All the stores have banners and flags hanging from the ceilings.  In the streets people are hanging flags in the air.  People are getting excited.  Soccer is really popular here, like really popular.  When The cup actually starts i am not sure if we will be able to leave our house,  Its going to get really crazy.  However i know that we are being protected by the hand of the lord.  Everything will be all right :D;
     I am really seeing the importance of obeying the commandments.  We have a less active member here that we have been tying to help recently.  He started breaking the word of wisdom.  At first it was small.  After a lot of time it got to be a bigger and bigger problem.  Now his family is breaking.  Its really really sad.  I know that if we keep the commandments, we will be happy, and we will be protected from many problems in this life.  Its really simple, the Commandments are to help us be safe, and to protect us.  When we follow the commandments we will be happy.  We just need to follow all of the commandments.
-Elder Darke
We Love our Elder!  Write him, he would love it!  Almost half way done already, wow!
Love, Melanie (Mom)
