This is my last time emailing… I never thought this time would ever come…I have never had so many emotions at once. Ending my mission is harder than starting my mission. But i know that it has to happen and i have to accept it. But before i get into all of that theres some really awesome things that are coming up this week! First off, Elder Rasband from the quorum of the 12 apostles is coming to speak to the stake im serving in on Sunday! Im super stoked to hear the words of another apostle! Lucky me, ill still be here. Also. Lauren Tijerina is getting baptized tisSunday!!! Im so excited for her to finally get baptized. Last thing, my recent convert Mike bore one of the most powerful conversion testimonies ive ever heard this week. Its undescribable the feeling of knowing you have brought a soul unto Christ, buit not only that, but to hear their firm testimony and see it change them completely.
Being a missionary for my Savior Jesus Christ has made me the happiest i have ever been. This mission has changed my life. It has transformed me completely. This is my joy, bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone around me. I have come to know my Savior personally and I have come to know my purpose here. I know that our life has a purpose and that purpose is to prepare ourselves to live with God again. I love Gods plan for us and i know its perfect. Even though we have our trials and our hard times, its worth it! We are learning, growing, and progressing. Its what God wants for us. I know that the only way back to our Heavenly Father is through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. This is the ONLY way. I know that the Church of Jesus CHrist of Latter Day Saints is The one and only church of Christ. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ, and because of that we have his gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It testifies of Christ and His Atonement and how we can apply it in our lives. I will never deny that book. I know that my Savior lives and that his grace is sufficient!
I love yall so much! Thank you for being my support as I have served the Lord. I know my mission isnt over yet, i have ETERNITY to go!
