Its been an amazing experience to have been able to be here in Uruguay. When I was younger, I never thought that I was going to go on a mission. But I am so grateful that Ive had this chance. I have gotten to know my Heavenly Father more than ever and Jesus Christ. This gospel is so amazing and its the only thing that makes us happy and the only thing that will allow us to live eternally with our families and with God and Christ again :) Im so grateful to everyone that has supported me. And Im so grateful for my family. They have supported me like crazy.
Its been such an experience being here. So many emotions. Its been hard. Its been fun. And its helped me grow spiritually. I know that God has been watching over me. I have seen miracles happen. And I have felt His love. He has helped me SO much on the mission. And Ive met amazing people here. I hope to be able to go home and continue changing lives. Its been amazing having a year and a half to focus on the gospel.
I want all of you guys to know that Jessica (our investigator) got baptized this past Saturday!! Her mom and her grandma, her two sisters and her friend went to the baptism :) There were complications, but everything turned out well. And on Sunday we were able to see her get confirmed and recieve the gift of the holy ghost. And now Jessica is officially a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints!! Im so happy that I was part of that process.
I dont know what to say. I just want to thank you all for everything. And I want to thank my Heavenly Father. He has made me who I am, and given me what I have. I love my Savior. I know that He died for me and I know that He knows my name. I know that He loves me and He wants me and my family to return to His presence. So I will do everything I can to achieve that goal. Because I know that Christ will soon come.
I love you all!!!
