Missions are the best thing a person can choose for themselves. It is my opinion that a mission is the 2nd greatest decision a person can make. The 1st being to follow God`s plan and Jesus Christ in the Pre-mortal world. I suppose marriage would probably be 2nd, but for right know in my life my mission is number 2. That single decision changed everything! A mission is likewise the same. Missions change lives. Missions mold destinies. Missions are the atonement taking effect in you in every sense of the word. This is the greatest adventure I`ve ever had. I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father for allowing me to represent his son in this beautiful country with these amazing people for 18 months. It`s been a long 18 months. It`s been indescribably hard. But it is the hardest thing I have ever loved.
As his representative, I testify with every ounce of truth that I know for certain that God is in reality our Father, the Christ is in real time our Savior. I know that those two beings love us with unfathomable love that we will never comprehend in this life. I know that a young boy, saw these two beings in a grove of trees in 1820. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet like I know that the sky is blue. He was a prophet and this is Christ`s only true church on this earth. The Book of Mormon is not just a good book, a nice story, a Mormon bible. It is God`s word. I love the souls that wrote it. I love them like I love my friends and family. I love them like I know them personally. Their words are true and I would defend what is written in that Book till the day I die.
This is the truth. I know it. I know it. I love you all so much. Thank you for all those who prayed for me during these 18 months. I really felt your help and your love.
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and he lives! I proudly testify of that fact in the name of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, Amen.
See you in a bit ;)
