Well, Here we are.
This will be the last time I write to you all as a missionary of Jesus Christ. I have a lot of things to tell you all, a lot of stories and experiences to share. But there will soon be plenty of time for that. For now, I want to share with you a few things that I have learned in this short time.
I have learned that the atonement of Jesus Christ is real. It isn't just a story that we read about, or a subject to talk about in Sacrament Meeting. It was a real event. And it has Real power today. I know that each and every one of us can apply that power in our daily lives. It's not just for repentance. It has power every single day, and in every single thing we do.
I have learned that the Book of Mormon really is the word of God. I have learned that by simply reading a few passages from its pages every day a person can come closer to God than ever before. I have learned to love that book. It has become a part of who I am.
I have learned the power of good parents. The first thing that Nephi said in the Book of Mormon is that he has good parents. I have seen that parents can completely change the lives of their children. I have seen this in my own life. I know that I too was born of goodly parents. I know that they are a lot of the reason that I decided to leave home and come here on the mission.
I have learned that this church is true. That by lving the principles that this church teaches one will find the way to be truly happy.
I love you all.
I hope to see you all soon.
I will be finishing my service as a missionary.
My homecoming talk will be thein Elk Ridge.
Read 2 John
I love you all.
