In our last Zone Conference, President Colleoni asked us a few questions. One of them was "Will I go home the same person that I was when I left?" In my case I'm going home completely changed. I'm still the same obnoxious kid that I was when I left home but at the same time I am completely different because of the knowledge and the perspective that I gained here on the mission. I wasn't a perfect missionary but I worked hard and was obedient. My dad always told and still tells me "Work Hard so that you can return home with no regrets." I have no regrets. If I could do it all over again I would do it the same way. I love Brazil with all of my heart. I love Natal with all of my heart and the people here. I will be going home this week but I'm positive that I'll be leaving a piece of me here.
We were able to finish off this week with one more baptism. A kid named .I was baptized. He had been going to Seminary alone for a few weeks when we started teaching him. It was a good going away present for me. Another man went to church this week for the first time and when he was leaving he told me that he wanted to be a member of this Church. He loved the church and felt the spirit. He just needs to get married first. I think if he were to have been married I would have baptized him right there! Haha the mission is great. For all of you who are thinking about serving a mission. Stop thinking and go. You'll never regret it.
Thank you guys for all the support you've given me my whole life. I can't wait to see you this week! I love you all! A IGREJA É VERDADEIRA!!
