Well, today will be my last day here in Santo Amaro! I will be transferred tomorrow, as well as my companion will also leave.
I also found out that I will be training a new missionary from the CTM. Ha, I don't know if he will be American or Brazilian. Hope it all goes well.
This week went by really fast. It's going to be sad to leave this area, but exciting to get to know a new area.
Sorry, we don't have much time to write today, we have a lot of people to say goodbye to.
Hope all is well with you guys. Thanks for all the support and talk to you guys later.

Missionaries share one thing and one thing only - the gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Like Nephi, "We talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins" (2 Nephi 25:26).
It may seem strange to focus so much of our lives on Jesus Christ, but the wisdom of the gospel applies to everything from the purpose of life to how we approach our work, how we relate to others, even how we take care of our bodies.
The teachings of Jesus Christ have more power to bring lasting happiness than all the success and pleasure the world can offer. Every message Mormon missionaries share revolves around Him and how His Atonement and ordinances allow us to return to live with our Father in Heaven and our families in heaven.
