I'm leaving for Nashville in less than an hour. I'm a bit nervous, but excited at the same time. My goal is to get at least two lessons at the airport and one on the plane [on the way to Brazil].
I gave a talk yesterday at church – inspired calling. Everyone was crying! They are really sad that I'm leaving. I was kind of shocked. I've only been here for 4 weeks. Our investigator and friend James [name changed] came to church with us. He said he almost started crying when I gave my talk. He's still undecided about the Book of Mormon but has committed to reading it from the beginning. I told him that since Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan, he needs to be baptized in the River Jesus. He wants to be baptized in a river so bad. It's kind of cold out right now though and he still hasn't committed to baptism. I'm going to miss teaching him a lot, but Sister Leavens and Sister Jones are going to do an awesome job.
