Words "as if from the dust"

Hello friends!

Well, this is it. This is most likely my last blog email. Weird. I'm dying*, it's for real!

We had a great week here in Clayton! We saw a ton of miracles! We even ate dinner with Sister Miracle! We had exchanges this week with the sister training leaders and had a really great day. We found a new investigator, we got to do service AND we finally met a less active we have been trying to meet for forever (seriously, Hna. Reed has been here 9 months total and she just barely met him!) and that same less active came to church on Sunday!!! Miracles.

The biggest miracles happened yesterday at church. Guess who passed the sacrament for the first time?! Peyton, his dad, and Ted!!!!!!!!!! It was the proudest moment of my mission!!!! And just when we thought that no investigators were coming, in walked 3 of them that we weren't expecting! It was a huge miracle!

So, like I said earlier, this will most likely be my last blog letter. I just want to finish it off with my testimony. I have learned so much in the last 18 months, and the most important thing I have learned and had solidified, is my knowledge that we have a loving Heavenly Father. The creator and governor of the universe is our fFther, and He really loves us. He loves us so much that He sent His Son to atone for us and to save us. I know that the only way to gain access to that atoning sacrifice is to follow the example that Christ set for us. I am so grateful that God loves and trusted me enough to let me come and serve Him for these 18 months. I have loved sharing this message with the people in the Virginia, Chesapeake Mission and I'm so excited to continue serving Christ for the rest of my life!!!!

La Iglesia es verdadera. Never forget that.

I love you all! See you in a week!
