Hey mom,
     This week was yet another blur. We have some great investigators and they are all weeping that I am going home soon. I hope we can get them baptized and on the Lord's path. 
     Well the young man wasn't baptized yet, but we are still working with him. The young mother went again to church and she is loving it. We brought a recent convert newlywed couple to her house to give her some friends. 
We really feel such great love from all the members here and I couldn't think of a better place to end the mission. On friday at about three in the afternoon, it got really dark because of the big rain clouds and it seemed like nighttime. It rained really hard and didn't stop. We had to go home to iron our clothes to dry them and we decided we were going to make cookies to give to our investigators to show our love for them. So we made six plates of cookies, and took two to some members who are so great to us and help us out a lot and four to our investigators. We wrote each one a letter to let them know how great the gospel is and how excited we are for them to receive the blessings of the Lord. 
     Sunday came around and President Perrotti came to the ward with his wife to speak. Later on at night we went to a fireside in the stake and yes, president spoke again. It was really cool though. Its really too bad that this wonderful time is coming to an end. I am excited to start working towards school and my own family some day, but I will really really miss the people here in Brazil. 
     It was a great week, and I am sorry I didn't have too much time to write. I also found out yesterday that we won’t go the temple anymore because we have our multi-zone conference. We are all pretty bummed, but I will still go with the other missionaries who will be leaving home with me. So at least I will get my last visit in. I cant wait to go with you and dad at our ward temple night the week I get back. 
     I hope you are having a wonderful week. I sure love you and miss you and will write you and talk to you next week. Next week is the last one!!!!!!! I love you so much!
