Hello friends and family! I hope and pray you all had a wonderful week. It’s been beautiful weather here in Kansas. I love fall so much!
This week our investigator that is working toward baptism Bryan is doing wonderful. He has been smoke free for 4 days. What a wonderful miracle. He is working toward being baptized later in October. He is reading and praying daily which is wonderful and such a blessing. We’re so grateful that the Lord placed him in our path. Throughout his life he has been prepared by the Lord to hear this wonderful message. He also came to church with us again and that was wonderful. We quickly realized that he needs fellowship and so we are prayerfully considering who he specifically needs.
Serving with Sister Howell has blessed my life so much. She is an incredible missionary who is diligent unto the Lord. I will miss her dearly. We clicked when we first saw each other and it’s been the best ever since. She is one of my best friends and always will be. Unfortunately Sister Howell will be going to another area as the Junction City branch is being closed to sisters this transfer. Our hearts break as we have so many lovely people here but the elders will take good care of them. I want Sister Howell to know how much I love her and how much she has grown in her first six weeks. She is an incredible missionary who has changed my life for good. Thank you Sister Howell. I love you.
I would love to say thank you to each and everyone of you and for those who are not reading this. Over the course of my mission I have felt many prayers not only on my behalf but those precious souls who were learning about the gospel. Thank you so much. Your prayers rescued me throughout my mission. Thank you for your letters, packages, emails and love. I will be eternally grateful for you all. Thank you for the love and support you showed my family. You all have changed my life for good.
As I reflect on my mission my heart swells with gratitude to our Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ. I have been refined, changed, and blessed because of my mission. Every single person I met on my mission has blessed my life in an unique way that will never be forgotten. Being an instrument in the hands of God has been such a miracle in my life and I promise I will continue to be an instrument as I return home and for the rest of my life. How grateful I am for my mission. I will never forgot this time in my life. Every moment on my mission has made me into the person I am today and this is all Because of our Beloved Savior Jesus Christ. I love Him. I know He is the Living Son of the Living God. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know Joseph Smith did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ in 1820. Because Jospeh asked such a sweet and sincere question we have the knowledge today that we can be with our families for eternity and that we can live with God again. We also know that it is the Atonement of Jesus Christ that makes Salvation possible. It is by the Spirit that I know these things to be true. I felt Peace, Love, and Joy as I have come to know the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored. As I read the Book of Mormon daily I feel a confirmation that is is true. Jesus Christ is at this head of His church. We have modern day prophets and apostles who reveal the Lords will to us so we may know how we can live with God again. I testify to you as you sincerely ask God to know these things are true or if you ask Him anything with a sincere heart and real intent He will answer you. We are His children. I will thank Him everyday for these precious truths and my mission and I say these things in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ Amen.
