So this is it!

Hey everybody. ..

So this is it! This is the lat email. I hate it. I love you all so much, but no offense I would love to stay another 2 years.

Come what may and love it though, right?. . . I guess?

The mission has been nothing short of the best 2 years and coming out here I never really thought I would say that. But now looking back, realizing the progress I’ve made, realizing that I will never be able to serve the Lord in this capacity again, it kills me! I’m going to miss the people in this mission. I’m going to miss talking with everyone I see about Jesus Christ our Savior. I’ll even miss wearing a suit.


I know God loves his children. I know he is always there trying to help us return and live with him. Yes, the heavens are open. Yes, God still speaks. He is the same yesterday today and forever. I know I have to start another chapter in my life, but I will always look back and treasure the incredible experiences I’ve had as one of God’s army, wearing his name, sharing his word. I know he has a plan for me.

I love you all and thank you for the support over the last 2 years. You’re the best! Don’t forget to pray that I won’t go crazy when I get home. . . I might though! hahaha
