I wrote Dad a little story but let me see, Well the other day we where visiting a family and I noticed that there is a large family that lives behind them. So we went and left a blessing there.  My comp left the blessing and during the blessing all the kids were running around and stuff but after I just looked up and testified.  They all accepted to receive us back.  It was really 3 families so that was pretty cool.  You could tell that they had felt something.

Man McDs pays 7 buck an hour? Mexicans that lay pavers make $10.  I’m gonna do pavers when I get back. JK that’s great that Tyler, Jessie, and Jamie got to finish the work and everything and that they had a good time. How long did it take?  (Tyler, Jessie, and Jamie helped G-ma lay pavers the other day.)

(letter to Dad)
Ya, there is a lot to learn still!  I’m glad to hear that you’re getting some studing in.  The mish is going great (só falta ums 28 dias ) ;)  No, I’m not trunky!  The other day my comp and I left a blessing in the home of
this lady and when he finished you could see it in her eye that she had felt the spirit.  She is a strong member in her church.  Her look was almost like Wow, what was that!
Love you Dad!

So I'm back in São Bento and well everyone is super happy to have me back.  It's really cool.  Sorry, I didn't write Monday but it was conference so I was in Joinville and I got to see a few people that I knew from there, Frenando and Faby. Conference was super cool.  Elder Costa's favorite food is lasagna. 
He's really cool.

Anyway, love you all,

So for my last transfer, I wont be a zone leader.  The new prez is coming soon and they wanna train the zone leader that will be here when he gets here... and guess what, that's not me, hurray!  I'll be going home like 2 months before the new prez gets here.  So this last transfer I will "só fica na boa." Prez is sending me back to Sao Bento Do Sul to die and giving me another kid to train, Elder Costa.  I don't know where he is from or anything but for sure he is Brazilian, also cool (American greenies São CHATOS!!!) 

I love the mission.  I'm a little sad that its all ending but at the very same moment.  I'm happy "ate o pó" that its all ending and I get to see all my family and friends and movies and music and girls and not being in charge of everything and getting to travel and work and get married and reap the blessing of these 2 years and serve the
Lord in other callings and to eat American food and have carpet in my house and to walk barefoot in the grass and in my house and in the shower and see my Mommy and eat Mexican food and not live where its humid and not have my clothes get moldy and have new clothes and go to the lake and go snowboarding and last but definitely, not least, have a DRYER!  Man, do I miss having a dryer.  

I think I'll appreciate the small things more when I get home.
