This is a weird feeling. Haha. I still don't feel like I am going home. I feel normal! haha. Today we are saying goodbye to some old areas and I went to my first area and I realized just how much I am going to miss this. Yesterday was hard. It was testimony meeting so I bore my testimony for the last time in sacrament meeting as a missionary. But I could feel the love of the people and the feeling of an accomplishment. Im not sad to leave. Im excited. But at the same time sad. haha. I will definitely miss this. Thank you for being an amazing mom. You've taught me so much and helped me through a lot. I love you. Don't be too much of a wreck in the airport..... haha. I will be happy to see all of you!!! I love you and have a great week! Ill see you guys in 3 days on thursday!!!!! :)

Elder Russell M Nelson

Hey guys!! We had some success this week!! The wife of the family came to church with her daughter!! The guy was working... So he didnt go... But she said she liked it! We have a Family Home Evening with them on wednesday in a members house so we will be talking about eternal families. Hopefully they will see the importance of it. I met some people from Ogden yesterday in church. haha. They announced there was a family from Utah and so I went and sat by them. They were thr visiting his family. This week Elder Russell M Nelson came to our mission. We got to shake his hand and meet the are 70 also. It was a big multi mission conference. It was our mission, and the Tegucigalpa mission that were thre in the sam building, and then they sent it by satlite to missions in Guatemala, Beliz, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and the San Pedro Sula missions here in Honduras. Me and my companion were about 8 rows back from the front :) haha! But it was really cool! Just want to share something I found kind of crazy that he did. 4 elders from the Tegucigalpa mission sang a song, and they didnt even mention their names. So when he got up he called one elder up BY NAME and told him to bring his companion and as they were walking up he called his companion by name too.... And the only time he saw our names out of all 400 missionaries was when we shook his hand for 5 seconds!!! It was crazy!! At the end he made an Apostolic Promise to us that we would all finish our missions safely ad with success and return home to our families and continue having success. It was a pretty cool experience. Im not sure who pays bags I will ask this week. I love you guys and miss you!!!! Have a great week!!!

WINDING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

I loved Darin's letter today. It is exactly what I needed to hear.  I love seeing his stregnth and how much he has grown. I cant wait to have him home!!! 

So this is my last change and Im staying here in ********* and I stayed with Elder *******. I was thinking its so weird. You spend your whole mission never thinking that this moment would come, and here it is at the door. Its sad yet happy at the same time. I was thinking yesterday that I wont be able to make promises as a representative as Jesus Christ when I get home, and then see the people keep the commitment and receive the blessings. Yesterday we did divisions and we visited many less actives and we talked about praying and reading the scriptures a lot. It doesnt matter how busy our schedule is, we can always find time to read and to pray. To keep those 2 commandments. Thats kind of been my motto here in the mission. If you want to see changes in your life, read the scriptures everyday and pray. It helps with the temptations, with the sadness, with everything! And I can make the promise as a representative of Christ that they will receive many blessings. Everything is going good here. We have found some positive people and are going to put all our energy into baptizing them before I leave. haha. With Faith we can do it! If you dont believe you wont receive!

Well our investigator Lurbin will be getting baptized on Saturday with her little brother finally!!! Me and one of the zone leaders and a member sat her down and we gave her a good talking to. haha. She said she was going to get baptized before I would leave the area but then I told her it would be better if she just got baptized as soon as possible. So she did what she had to do and then she has been telling us she needs to buy new clothes and stuff. haha! So she is definitely ready!! That was the best thing that happened this week. Other than the week was pretty normal. We found some more people and we are getting ready for changes next week. Chances are I will be leaving here and going to a different area. I miss you guys!! Emma looks cute with no teeth :) hahaha. Tell everyone I said hi and that I miss them! I love you guys!!!!!!!!!! Have a great week!! Happy Birthday coming up mom!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for being the best mom ever!!!

The tree is right by the main building! :P You should have just asked somebody. haha! I remember TRC. Except we had to do it in Spanish :P haha. It would have been nice to do it in English. But now I could go back and do it without a problem. haha. This week was good. We have the same investigators that are progressing slowly but surely. We are trying everything we can with them. They just each have their own problems. But everything will turn out in the end. One of them should be getting baptized on the 13. We have faith! haha. She has some pretty big problems. But she can get over them. If she has the will and faith to change she will do it. She has been coming to church for the past 6 weeks. Everything is going fine here. Still haven't bought my camera cause there's no where to buy it from. Well miss you guys and love you!!! Hae a great week!!! Things are going good here. I have a new companion. Elder Linsenmann from Saint Marys Idaho. Yes we are both from Idaho!!! haha! Everyone cant believe it when we tell them we dont even live close to each other. haha. But we are making progress with some of the families we are teaching. He has just a s much time as elder Burnham, they were companions in the mtc, and to be honest, his Spanish is even worse.... haha. But its ok. Cause he at least tries to talk. He will be the one to start conversations and he will talk in the lessons which takes some of the weight off of my shoulders. But we both have the same interests and everything. But this is going to be a good change. I have 2 changes left after this one. So it is just working just as hard as ever. Its still hot as ever here. I havent been able to buy a camera yet cause here in Catacamas the cameras are waaaaaay too expensive. 150 dollars for a 70 dollar camera.... But I will just have to wait until I go to Tegucigalpa. I hope you have a great week!!! Love you guys and miss you!!! Tell Emma Hi for me!!! Give her a big hug and kiss for me!!!
