So I have mixed emotions this week.  This is probably my last email as a full time missionary.  That just seems so weird to me.  I still don't feel like it is actually going to happen, but I know it is.  This last week was crazy and this next week is crazy.  I have so much to do and to write down so that my comp actual knows what is going on in this city.  I also have a ton of visits to make and exchanges with the sisters in Brasov.  I am kind of excited for the week to be over, but at the same time I don't want it to end.  I love the people so much and just started some of my goodbye visits has already started pulling at my heart.  Plus I am able to see the impact and the friendships I have actually made.  I love the people here but there has always been the worry about whether they actually love me or not.  But as I am saying goodbye I am realizing all the relationships I have actually made.  That makes it even harder to say goodbye. 

I want to thank all of you for your love and support over the last 18 months.  There have been a lot of hard times, as well as good times, but I can't tell you how many times I received emails or letters from you all just at the right time.  You are all such blessings in my life.  I can't wait to be able to talk to you all soon and to share what I have learn with you as you catch me up on all of your lives.  Don't forget. . .

My homecoming talk is on March 24th 9:00 am at the Downey 1st ward building in Downey, CA.  I would love to see some of your lovely faces there.  My mom posted it on Facebook for me. the address and facts are there so look at it.

Anyways, thanks again.  I will probably write another letter next week after I get home and all of the craziness has died down a bit.  That will summarize this upcoming week as well as the long flight home. 

I love you all so much.

First, Congrats to Bart and Alexis on their new baby girl!  She is just beautiful!  I cant wait to meet her.  Next Alicia, I love that you knew that I wanted to hear from you.  ha, we are just so well connected mentally ha.  I love you and i cant wait for movie nights and just being able to see you! 

Well this week was kind of crazy.  We did service for an older lady that took about 2 days.  We had our own moral dilemmas that ensued with that one and she kind of thought we were going to be working for her, despite us saying that is was just

for the day and she couldn't pay us and explaining we were just doing it out of service.  But it was nice to serve. 

We also had an activity for the first of March (a holiday here) with the whole district.  Really only the members from Buc and Ploiesti came, but it was so nice to see members I worked with a year and a half ago and where they are now.  I got some nice pics with them and started with the goodbyes.  For the next two weeks I will be visiting all of the members and less actives (in addition to our regular lessons) so that I can thank them and say bye to them as well.  I hate goodbyes.  But, I know that the Lord will watch over them.  I love them so much!

We also got to have a couple lessons with Flori, who has her baptismal date set for April 6th.  I think that meeting her and her family are probably the biggest blessing I have received since being here.  I love them so much, they will be one of the hardest goodbyes.  But like I said, the Lord will take care of them. 

Well all you happy people.  I love you so much.  Talk to you soon.
