Subject: ''we arent talking about... Hucklebery Finn!''

hey everybody, Well this week we had zone conference... my last zone conference. I got to see Elder Ramirez there, he is now with an Elder who has had many problems with obedience in the mission... hope that doesnt rub off on him. Me, Elder Meredith, Elder Smith, Elder Cope, Elder Alder and Elder Jacobsen all gave our last testimonies. I actually was the one that had the hardest time giving it. I remember listening to Elder Melander give his, and just having the perception that I would never ever give mine, that'd this would never really end. Its crazy how fast this has all passed.

We are starting to see more results from our work with members. We have tons of people who have potential, few came to church yesterday, but theyll get baptized. We had two people accept fecha yesterday, Shirley and Faustino. Faustino will be getting baptized b4 I leave.

I had a good interview with Pres Maynes on Saturday. We talked a lot about how I need to keep up all the good habits Ive made on the mission, Ill think youll all be surprised with how different I am. And we also talked about how I need to make sure I dont just go back to being the same old Mike from b4 the mission. Then he said something that made me laugh really hard. He gets really intense when he talks, and we were talking about living what we study and he said : ''people dont understand, the Savior was an actual person, its not like we are studying about... Hucklebery Finn!'' had to be there.

Mom-Dad: Tell Shayne hi for me, cant believe hes home already. Here in Bolivia there arent flood drains, so you can imagine how it is when it rains. Im excited to be able to see Beau when I get back... havent seen him for almost 3 years
.Crystal-Happy Birthday. I wonder how Ill react when I get home... cuz right now I live in a place very very different.
Grandma- Tell Cherie congratulations. Atleast this time around Sister Wright has an idea of how fast the two years fly by.
Elise-Happy Birthday, does Beau come down often now?

Ok everybody, you all take care, I love each and everyone of you
Elder Wilson

2nd Nephi 15: 26-30
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth; and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly; none shall be weary nor stumble among them.

27 None shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken;

28 Whose arrows shall be sharp, and all their bows bent, and their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind, their roaring like a lion.

29 They shall roar like young lions; yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry away safe, and none shall deliver.

30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea; and if they look unto the land, behold, darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof
