May 5, 2014...Last days in the Mission

It is interesting how the days preceding my departure is just like any other day. It is so weird to think that I am at the closure of my mission. And to think....where did all the time go?! 
The last couple of days have been days filled with working as hard as I could and finding the dedication to help the people here, despite my departure. I have loved all that I have taught and I have felt the love of Heavenly Father as I have tried to see the investigators for what they can be and not what they are now. I will never forget the things that I have learned in my mission,...the greatest of it all....God lives! And we are each a child of God with great potential to become a divine son or daughter of God. I would never trade the mission for anything in the world...because through it I have come to understand the things that the Lord desires for me to become. I think that the hardest part of these last few days is knowing that it will be the last time for a long time that I will be able to see again these people that I love. But I know that the Lord has placed me in certain places at certain times, to meet certain people and to be a certain instrument in His hands to bless certain lives. 
I want to thank all the people that have helped me to become what I have become and to have the power and worthiness to be a missionary for the Lord. Thank you all so much for your support and love. I love you all so much...God be with you till we meet again!!!
