Hello Family!!  
I can hardly believe that this is my LAST weekly email that i will be sending.  I feel weird about it!  This mission thing has gone super dang fast!!! AHHH!!!
SO-  My last week as a missionary has been really really great.  Really crazy.  it has been a blur!  We have seen some really awesome miracles with the people we have been teaching.  Marcus is progressing SOOOO well!!! This past week we had a bunch of lessons with him.  He is SOO ready to be baptized and accept the gospel.  He has been reading and is already in 1 nephi 11!  not bad for only having a book of mormon for a week!  So great! 
On sunday i sang in sacrament meeting.  It was really fun.  I did a duet from the lamb of god- with sister chelsea cornwell!  love her!! she is fantastic.  It went really well then i ended up giving a talk in YSA. Haha one of the other speakers ended up not making it.  I love being a missionary!  I am glad that President Alexander asked me to speak.  
OHHH a crazy thing happened!!!  on friday night some of our sisters didn't answer the phone for follow-ups with their district leader. So they called he called us looking for them.  They had driven back from Mcallen that day- because they had a new trainers training meeting with president.  We tried to call them- and they didn't answer.  THEY WERE MISSING!!!  Next thing we knew the AP's were calling us- asking us for details. So we got ready- just in case if they wanted us to drive up there and find them.  They sent members by and all sorts of stuff but no one was answering the door.  BUTTTT- they finally answered the phone!!  Turns out they were asleep in their beds.  it was 11:30 by the time we heard anything from them. Sister cano randomly woke up and checked the phone.  Their phone quit working and wasn't receiving any phone calls.  So that was crazy.  We were freaked out that they were stranded or something!  But really they were just exhausted greenies that had a malfunctioning phone.  Pobrecitas. 
Man, Well i ran out of time!
I want to leave you with my testimony.  I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY.  I am so grateful for the chance that i have had to serve here in south Texas.  I know that as missionaries we are called by a prophet of God.  The Lord leads and guides this church and the missionary work.  I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today.  He holds ALL the keys that we need in this dispensation.  Joseph Smith really saw heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The authority was restored through josph smith.  I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.  It is SOOOO true!!! As we read it every day we can receive answers to our prayers, guidance, and strengthen our relationship with god.  I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.  He came to earth to sacrifice his all So that we may live again. I know that we can change.  I have seen it in myself and i have seen it the people that i have taught here in Texas. The atonement is real.  As we reach for Christ's hand he will lift us up.  This is the True church of Jesus Christ.  We have found it!  Now we just have to live it.  =D  

I love you all!  i hope you have a great few days!!  I will see you Wednesday!!!
