Buenas días!This will be my last letter home! I can´t believe that this day came... This is going to be not as organized and well written as I wanted, I didn´t have time to write it out before and I don´t have a lot of time today because we have a zone activity so less internet time! First I´m going to tell you about my week!
We had zone conference, and I SAW HERMANA FRANDSEN AND BLUTH!!! Hansen, Frandsen, and Bluth, beginning together and ending together :) We met our new president and his wife, they are AWESOME! I am really sad that I don´t get to spend more time with them. They´re really fun and really good teachers! I learned a LOT. The mission is so great in that way...
Another miracle, today I saw Hermana Evans and it looks like we are going to get to go to LORETO'S BAPTISM!!!! Do you guys remember her?! She was our miracle in Chorrillos, but really hard to find! She´s getting baptized on Sunday and we are going to do everything we can to go see it! :) Such a miracle. I love seeing God´s hand in my life.
Okay, but here we go. This is my last. I honestly cannot believe it. The mission has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have never been so happy in my entire life!
Before the mission, I had a desire to go on a mission, but I had no idea why. I was not very good at sharing the gospel, I believed the church was true but I didn´t have the strongest testimony, I didn´t know the scriptures very well, and a million other reasons. In the MTC, I was really nervous and had no idea what I was doing! But I can say now that the mission is exactly what I needed. God called me and qualified me. I gained a testimony. I know without a single doubt that the church is true. I have seen miracle after miracle. I love the mission. I love Chile. And I love my Savior. We are so blessed to know this gospel. The mission has not been easy, but it has been the biggest blessing of my entire life.I am so grateful for the opportunity to share the gospel with my brothers and sisters and to serve my Heavenly Father. It is incredible how my Heavenly Father knew that I needed to go on a mission to this place in this time. This work really is marvelous and a wonder! And what helps me is to remember that it doesn´t end when I leave Chile. I hope to be like Christ´s apostles and leave behind my nets forever, not just for this time. I want to serve Him for the rest of my life and bring this light that we have to all of those that are in the darkness. There are so many that perish in the darkness only because they don´t know where to find the truth! I hope to be able to continue helping my family here on earth.
All I can think of are the words to one of my favorite hymns: Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee, How great thou art!
Thank you all so much for the support you have given me. Thank you all for helping me to be able to come to Chile and on this mission, because my life has been changed forever. I love you all so so much, and I will see you soon!
