Ok so big news...........in August we as a mission are going to be going on a trip to a nearby city called Chiclayo to hear Elder David A. Bednar talk!!!! We get to go listen to a member of the 12 speak!! I was so surprised and excited when we got the news!! So ya pretty much the best 1 year in the mission present ever haha!!
Ya so with that in mind this week I will be completing my 1 year mark in my mission. I can't believe that I have already been out for so long!! I am already done with half of this journey and it really is a bittersweet moment. This mission has easily been the greatest time of my entire life. It has also been the hardest time in my entire life. I have learned so much in my time here from teaching and studying and living on my own it is just crazy but there is one thing that I have learned more than anything else. I love some of the words of Jesus Christ that He gave to the Nephite people during His time here in the Americas. In 3 Nephi 12:14-16 it says:
Well that's all for this week. Love you guys so much and I really thank you for all of the support that you have given me over this last year of my mission. You guys are the best family that I could ever ask for (even though you steal all of my stuff when I leave.....Tate haha). I am always praying for you to keep going forward in the church. Praying, reading, fasting, going to church, helping others, keeping the commandments and really just doing whatever it takes to keep the Lord close in your lives and in our home. I know He loves us but we have to let Him in. Love you all and I'll talk to you soon!!
