This is the End


Well this is my last letter as a full time missionary. That stinks. It had to happen at some point right? I feel like something profound is expected but I don't really have much to say. I've done my best and this year and a half has meant more than I could ever imagine. We each go on our missions with some idea of what will happen, but you can truly never know what a mission is until your here. For instance this weekend we got to baptize Mary, she never expected to want to be a member. She said she felt God abandoned her, but in coming here (from Ukraine) she realized that God never left that he has been guiding her her whole life. The power that came from Mary as she spoke and bore her testimony cannot be explained, and for that reason I am so grateful I got to be apart of it! As sad as it is to go home I know my mission has been the perfect spring board for the rest of my life, though it's scary I know the Lord still has true and great things prepared for me and I am so excited to see what they are!!!!

Well I'll leave you with the classic 
2 Timothy 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith
 I guess I'll see you tomorrow (although I am praying for a snow storm....). Peace out girl scout.
