Well... This is it. I can´t believe it´s here. I have tons of
mixed emotions but I am really excited to be back. I have had a good
week. We baptized a lady named Rubiela! It was amazing to be able to
see her be baptized. It is an amazing story and I will share it in my
homecoming talk. So be there!
You may be pleased to know that this week was considerably less
intense haha. Don´t worry... I am still fine. Just a great story to
We started the goodbyes yesterday. It´s not easy. They all cried and
made it pretty tough. I love Colombia, I love Colombians and I
wouldn´t trade the experience for anything in the world.
This week will be interesting. Tomorrow is my last day in my area.
It will be crazy running around trying to say goodbye to everyone. I
don´t know how I am going to do it. Wednesday I will be with Elder
Shelley and Elder Kutterer (from the MTC) making the last few errands.
Friday, I am with the Pres. all day long in interviews and dinner
and stuff like that. Friday.... I come home. It´s gonna be a crazy
Just a few notes from this week. We made no-bake cookies... We
didn´t get jumped by a gang... I said a few goodbyes... We didn´t
have water or light for 3 days... The mission gave me some parasite
evacuation pills (tons of fun)... It was a great week!
I want to take a minute and thank you all for everything. I couldn´t
have ever done this without your prayers and support. I love you all
and can´t wait to see you... ON FRIDAY!!!!!
I know that this church is true. If there is anything that I have
learned on the mission, it´s that. I know without a single doubt that
this is true. I love the Lord and I know He loves me. I want to
continue to help people know this for themselves. I have changed a
lot on the mission and I think it has been for good. I have grown a
lot. Still got a long way to go but the mission helped me get
started. I know I haven´t shared my testimony/spiritual experiences
very much... But I have had them. Every single one of them has
shaped my life substantially.
Thanks again for everything!!! I love you all!!! I will see you on
