Dear familia,

So I just have to say that it was another great week. The people we are teaching are amazing, and equally amazing are the members in the wards where I'm serving. I don't want to leave this place quite yet! Haha man this is unreal. I feel like I still have another transfer or so. The seminary teacher invited us to seminary this past week so we went and shared our story about how we prepared for the mission and then some missionary experiences. There are 15 people enrolled in seminary and 14 attend regularly. It's amazing. They couldn't believe that there were only 4 or 5 of us my senior year, and only 3 attended regularly. Those were the days...

This week we have a 3 day leadership training (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) in McAllen and it lasts nearly all day. It's for all leadership in the mission (Trainers, District Leaders, and Zone Leaders) so there will be about 80 people at the training. It's going to be huge and awesome! It will be great seeing a bunch of my friends that are serving in other parts of the valley but it's going to be sad not having those days to work and find. All we have is from 6-9 at night. Elder Stevens and I are determined to find at least one more family before I go. 

I'm hoping that next Tuesday before I head to the Mission Office I'll be able to stop by real quick to some of my recent convert families. Or maybe I'll get permission to go to church in Edinburg on Sunday. I really want to see them all before I head back home. I'm not sure when I'll be able to come back down to visit. I am so so so grateful though that I won't need to go too far to come back and visit in the future. What a bendicion.

So I'm working on sending my bike home. I got an old bike box and I just need to disassemble my bike and tape it all up. The question is how I'm going to ship it. Today we are going to try by a few places and see what's cheapest. I'm hoping it's under 100 bucks. It's such a nice bike and there is no way I want to get rid of it. I have kept it in really good condition too. We'll see what I can do, but I should be ale to take care of it.

Man, I'm not sure what else to say. It hasn't quite hit me yet. I'm not sure when it is...hopefully when I'm actually on the plane. 

Pues, los quiero mucho :) Gracias por todo. Voy a tener una semana tan exitosa y les escribo la semana que viene de esta gran semana que vamos a tener. Elder Stevens y yo nos llevamos muy bien y a veces nos divertimos demasiado. No es pecado, verdad? jaja pues cuidense mucho. TE AMO!

-Elder Brett
