The Last One

Well. I cannot believe I am here. The emotions are mixed, and the thoughts are scrambled. This is the last email yall! I do have one more Monday but that will be busy with temporary goodbyes and playing Tetris with my things in a floral print suitcase. I could write you a list of funny things that I ate or experienced. I could tell you of the insane weather KY has. I could explain why I decided to serve a mission or why I stayed out in the mission field. But I think I will just share my simple testimony of the Savior, because that has been the thing that has changed me.

I know my Savior lives. He is love. I know His Atoning sacrifice was for me and me alone. I know there is hope in His resurrection. I have a testimony of His purpose, which was to establish His church, but above all, to pay the debt nobody else could've ever paid. He is the Messiah, and He will return. I know my Heavenly Father and Mother love me so deep to send their Son. I know they love you all so much to bless us with direction and peace in this life. I know we have a Prophet on the Earth today that leads and guides us under the direction of the Savior. I love our Prophet. I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. It is not just a good read or just true. It testifies on every page EXACTLY who Jesus Christ is. That makes this Book that we hand out for free incredibly priceless. I know that prayer works! It might not work out the way we expect or hope it does, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work! I know my Father in Heaven listens to my prayers even when I feel like I'm talking to nothing at all. He is there. He listens. You are His child. I am His child. I know that partaking the Sacrament is vital to my staying on the Covenant path. The Sacrament means everything to me. It is how I feel connected with Heaven each Sunday. I have a testimony of the Temple. That is God's home. Inside its walls miraculous things happen. Those on the other side of this veil are baptized, endowed with power, and sealed for time and all eternity. On this side of the veil couples make promises to each other and to their Heavenly Father to live worthy of the blessings of being sealed for forever. How amazing is that?! How blessed are we to have all of this knowledge! I know that Jesus lives and because of that simple fact, I will live and I will be forgiven. I say this in Jesus' name. Amen.

I love you all and I will see you very soon!
