96. Rio das Ostras, Rio de Janeiro

10 May 2015

[We had a fantastic LONG skype talk with Cooper yesterday!  Though suffering from a cold he seemed better than ever.  We discussed his re-entry desires- which include "no big parties, but lots of chicken pockets".  There are two companionships in this ward, so there are four of them in the apartment, at this last transfer, a friend from the MTC district- Elder Evans was assigned to Rio das Ostras, so they are now living together.  They arrived in Rio together back in November 2013, and in just over three weeks, they will fly to Atlanta together on their journey home. He seemed very excited to enjoy the last three weeks of his mission.  I can't believe we are this close!]

The final chapter began this week, and it certainly was written up quite poetic-ly. E. Evans made his epic return to Rio das Ostras. We came on the same flight from the States to Brazil, now we are going to finish the mission in the same area  and same house and then were gonna book it off on the same flight home. Nice ending.

The week was pretty difficult overall. I ended up catching a fever midweek and I managed to walk and visit some people but I just wasn't capable of working and teaching effectively so I did get some bed time in so I could recover quicker. 

We had some CRAZY experiences this week which will need further explanation here in a few weeks. Remind me to tell you guys about the time we taught ....

Strange email this week.... but the highlgiht was really talking to the family this week. I love you guys so much, and can't wait to see you all real soon!
