Well, this week we were able to meet the new mission president and his wife! President and Sister Bennallack. They are both really cool. They are from Australia. Brisbane I think but yeah! He actually works as an I.T. for the church in the pacific area. So that comes in handy with what he announced! The mission is getting smart phones to use. Which is really cool. It will be super helpful for all the missionaries. They will have all the materials on hand, GPS and everything else that you need. Sadly though I will not be able to see how the mission functions with them because I will be leaving by then.
In regards to me leaving honestly I'm a bit nervous.I have been a missionary for two years, focusing totally on the Lord and His Son Jesus Christ. I have been serving them every day I have and have given them all the strength I got. I'm grateful for this opportunity to grow closer to them. I am excited to start this next chapter in my life but, I am nervous. I will have no clue how to function outside of the mission. But on the bright side my parents will only be a phone call away! so that will be good.
I'm not sure if you will hear from me next week but if not then know that all is well. Don't worry I will be busy trying to get my life together and look forward to reconnecting with you all. Anyways thanks for all the prayers and support keep em up! We need them!.
