Saying goodbye to Santa Maria!
|The joys of packing.|
|Last Santa Maria Selfie|
|Farewell for now, my friends.|
First off my new companion Elder Gois, from Parana Brasil. He is a great guy and we get along really well. He actually only has 2 more weeks than I do in the mission and the day I entered the CTM he left for the field kind of cool. Also his 19th birthday is coming up this next month. And our apartment is on the second floor in a good building except for my semi-ghetto window and the walls in the shower give a slight shock if you touch them while wet haha taking a shower is like playing that game operation, but it’s safe for now, we think...

|We had a great turn out to our activity to celebrate the birthday of Cruz Alta and a late Father's Day in Brasil!|
Also I was a bit out of the habit of singing a lot back in Santa Maria which I changed the day I arrived there in Cruz Alta. And this Sunday I got to sing a special hymn "O Meu Pai" (Oh My Father) as a special musical number for sacrament meeting and the Stake President who was there said that he wanted to see a ward choir here when he next visited so we will see if he was joking haha.
|Beautiful new chapel|

|Our ward boundaries and my area is marked to the south (if you can see it).|
|New room- its a bit drafty with the window right there.|
