"Thus Ends the journey of Elder Tanner Ross Paxman in the Brasil São Paulo North Mission."

Holy cow, its over. Well ... almost. This is the last email, and that's super weird. I cant believe it. I'm trying to convince myself that its true, but I think I will realize it only after I get in the plane. wow. Its super weird to think next week Ill be home, Ill be in my normal ward. Strange. Anyways, The work went pretty well this week, we were able to baptise Aloisio on Sunday after church meetings. He is super elect. We had a "Multirão do Ramo" which is were the members come, and go handing out and inviting people to go to the branch conference, and both him, and also Stefanie (another recent convert) came and helped out. It went pretty well. We also had another amazing conference with Elder Jairo Mazzagardi of the Seventy. It was really good. We were able to work with several people, and I hope that the new Elder finds this area in good shape and takes good care of it. I will miss my Ramo of Jaguaré. I'm really going to miss Brasil and all the friends that I have made here. I am so thankful for technology so that Brasil wont be too far ...     I am really excited to go home, and am looking forward to seeing all the people from back home. Its like a torn heart. Between a country and people that I've grown to love so much, and all those that I love that I will return too. But my time has come, so home, here I come. But I would like to leave a scripture as well. Its in Psalms 37:4-5. If we delight in the Lord, He will give us our hearts desires, and if we trust in Him, He will do anything for us. I am so grateful for the Lord, and for my great opportunity to serve as an Elder in the Brasil São Paulo North Mission. I love all you guys, and one last scripture that's in 2nd John 1:12. I'll be back in a couple of Days, I love you all, and wish you the best. Until we next meet.
