Well, I can´t believe I´m saying this, but this is it! I´ve got
these last couple days in the mission to visit my sectors and say
goodbye to so many people I´ve come to love. Yesterday I went to Las
Brisas to say goodbye and it was a very emotional day--happy, but sad,
exciting, but heartbreaking. Everytime I try to explain my mission
experience in words I just sound really cliche, and I probably sound
really cliche right now... But I just want to say that this experience
has been one that has changed my life for the better. I don´t know who
I´d be or where I´d be if I hadn´t had come on my mission. I have met
wonderful people who just love me unconditionally, and I have learned
from them how the love of our Heavenly Father must be. I have seen
miracles, and I have seen God´s hand in this work. I am so grateful for
every experience I´ve had, even the tough ones. I was reading in Alma 26
today and I feel like it sums up most of my emotions about the mission.
Thanks for always writing and being good examples to me. I love you SO
much and can´t wait to see you in a couple days!!!!!! I know this church
is the true and restored church of God. I know the Book of Mormon is
the word of God and that it was translated by the power of God by the
prophet Joseph Smith. There is not a doubt in my mind that these things
are true. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He knows what
we´re going through, He´s felt everything we will ever feel, so He knows
how to lift us up when we fall.
I´m excited to see you all. I hope you have a great couple days! See you soon!
