Keep Working to the End!

Area:  Leavenworth, Kansas    
Companion:  Elder Tuala

It's kinda crazy that it's come to an end just like that!  Two years of being in Missouri and Kansas and it just ends...  The great thing is that these two years were such a great molding phase of my life.  They have helped me become someone so much greater than I was before and for that I am eternally grateful. :).

My plans for this last week are pretty simple!  Keep working to the end!  We have appointments throughout the days to help keep us busy and my mind off of things.  One of the members I am close with in Kearney is coming up to have lunch with us on Tuesday so I'm excited for that!  

Again, I am so eternally grateful to my Heavenly Father and to my Savior Jesus Christ for this amazing opportunity to serve the people in the Missouri, Independence Mission.  I have been able to cultivate through the spirit, a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Who knows where I would be right now if it hadn't been for this decision.  When you get lost in the work of others, you truly do find yourself (That is a sneak peak into my homecoming talk).   

Love you all so much!!!  See ya in a couple of days! :D

  1. Yeah Hard works beats tallents!
    Wishing you great!days stay happy! from coupons

  2. Another follower of the American cult started by a whackadoodle prophet. Like Islam it claims to restore the "truth" religion. New book and different Jesus. Proof that there is a sucker born every minute. Mormonism is nothing more than a nonprofit scam for guys in white suits, pedaled by naive young people the call "elders" with no life experience.
