The Final Update:
And all too soon, the end has come.
18 Months ago, I walked into the Provo Missionary Training Center and officially began my mission in Washington Everett. I have been able to meet some of my favorite people in the whole world and have loved the opportunity to serve and teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I have come to understand more than ever before the love that Heavenly Father has for each one of us. He truly is our loving Father in Heaven and has created a plan for us to return to Him. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and it is through Him we can return to live with Him. The Atonement is so real and is there for every one of us! Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can be cleansed and healed and become the person Heavenly Father would have us be. We truly can become like Him and receive all the blessings Heavenly Father has in store for us. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and this is the same exact Church Christ established when He was here. I know we are led by a living prophet who receives revelation to guide and direct God's people. I know that the Priesthood is the power and authority of God and is found in the Church. In the temple, we can be sealed together with our families for all time and eternity.
I am so thankful for all the things I have learned and how much my testimony has grown. I am thankful for all the experiences I have had that have brought me to understand just a little of the love Heavenly Father has for us.
And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
