Abram will be coming home this Wednesday night! His letters the past few weeks have been more of back and forth working out logistics, registering for classes this fall at BYU, and stuff like that. I was out of town last week and didn't ever get around to posting an update or pictures. It's a two for one this time.
But two very special things happened in the last weeks of the mission. A very special family got baptized, and so did an adorable little girl. Abram says that is the highlight of how he could have ended his mission.
Also, Poza Rica is the hottest place in Mexico. Hot and humid. Temps drop to around 110 at night, but it has been really oppressive heat for the past month. Coming home to Oregon will be quite a relief. Abram actually said he was hoping to finish his mission in the heat of Poza Rica so that coming home to cool Oregon will be ever more exciting than ever.
Anyway, we're pretty freaking out excited that he will be home after two years. Here are the pictures from his last couple of weeks.
A happy baptism day for this family.
Abram will go to the mission home tomorrow, and then on a bus to Veracruz Wednesday morning. He flies home with two other Elders from Portland, so that will be a fun adventure for the three of them to come home all together.

This week should be a memorable one. we are have a baptismal service programmed for a whole family! It shall be the first time in my mission that I'll baptize a married couple and their children. Well, more precisely, they only have one child. Little K is the most spontaneous child I have met. He's also the Plants vs. Zombies expert. I have had wonderful experiences teaching them and feeling the Spirit become more and more prominent in the home. My ''cookie mom'' from this ward is helping us by friendshiping and praying and studying the scriptures with the family every day of the week. I'm really so glad to be going home on such a positive note!
Who looks more dead, the cat or I?
