Hola, Everyone!

So, if all goes according to plan, this should be my last e-mail from the mission. As such, I'm going to make it a little different

And this last of all I share, the Testimony that is in me. That Christ Lives. He was born, lives, suffered, died, and lived again so that each of us could repent and receive forgiveness for what we have done. More than that, His Atonement allows us to change and feel his healing power in each of our lives to have a permanent effect on us. I know that He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world,  that everything He did for us was an act of love, so that we could choose to accept Him and receive our eternal reward. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His church here on the earth today, that He Leads this church by means of his Living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I know that each of us can make a difference in the lives of others, and, as was mentioned during the conference, we can reach out and bless the lives of those around us. I know these things to be true, and leave them with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Hola Everyone!

So for those paying attention, the number 2 is important today. Last Friday I completed 2 years as a missionary.  Tomorrow marks 2 weeks until I go home. I should see 2 baptisms before I leave, and Susanna and her kids get baptized 2 weeks after I go home. So lots of 2's right now. So to answer what I'm sure a lot of you want to ask, I'm fine. Last week I was a mix of I can't wait to be home, I'm going to miss Mexico, I'll see my family, I'll miss the people here, it was an internal nightmare (all these feelings at the same time), but the Lord is helping me, and I'm good now. I'm going home in 2 weeks. Ok, lets go to work. So I'm cool for now.
Things are staring to line up for after I'm gone. We should have 1, if not 2, baptisms before I leave. I mentioned Juan last week if I remember right, but the other is an investigator who we have been teaching for a few months now; but she had one thing she had to change before she could be baptized. Well, it looks like now that's changed. We are going to wait a little to make sure it all pans out fine, and if so, she should be baptized before I leave, too. It's interesting to think that I won't see the majority of the fruits from my work these last 2 weeks, but it's service to the Lord, and future missionaries will be there to harvest (My companion for one!) 

Two weeks? I can do anything for two weeks!

That's all for now. Nos Vemos!
