Haha well I think I wont be emailing my last Pday just because We will be in a meeting for self sufficieny all day but I will next week! Haha I honestly dont have much to say.. We are knocking alot of doors because we dont have many solid investigators... Yeah and I had to go to Itararé (city on the border of Paraná and São Paulo) and dang they had a sweet cave there!! I took some sweet pics! I am trying to find some cool souvenirs but dang its SUPER hard!! hahah every time I pick somehting up and think if it will remind me of Brazil I just go brain dead and cant decide if I should buy it... I think it is more the fact that I have kind of turned into a mão de vaca which translated exactly would be cows hand but real meaning would be someone who doesnt like dropping money... hahah but I am finding some cool cheap stuff! This thursday we will be having our exit interviews with President. I am like I said rather nervous cause that will be it.... Its something you always know will happen but when it gets here you just kind of are like uhhhhhh........... carley remembers well probably! Well if you have anything you want me to buy yall please let me know by next week! do some research on braziliian stuff and if you find something cool I will look for it and get one. Love yall!!! man I cant wait to hear texas english!!!

Well this week was a crazy one... I had to run a mile and half sprinting to go to an investigators house who called us telling me he couldnt take life anymore... He hung up the phone call saying Im going to kill myself.... so you can imagine how fast I ran... Long story short everything worked out we took him to the church where they were having an Elders quorum activity and he called us after it was over telling us how much it helped... We were very relieved! Haha I had a very fun conversation with My comp telling him he has to stop saying things that are completley false.. I have gotten good at resolving problems without overreacting since being on the mission so he took it well and we are working on it together! hahah my last interview with president with be the 13th and man Im stinking nervous cause then its all getting real. I hasnt exactly hit me yet how close it is which is a good thing for sure but Im nervous cause I know thats going to be a tough interview to have! I should get all the packages and letters that have been sent recently here in a bit. The ZL's are going to sao paulo this week and Will come to itapeva next week, I will let yall know. We found a small favella here which is sweet looking and which I didnt think existed here! haha it is sweet! But Should be a good week!! LOVE YALL!!!
