This is it! What?! I can't believe that this is the last post while I am on my mission. Tomorrow I go to the mission office and spend the day with President and Sister Lewis and the missionaries from my MTC district. Thursday morning my parents will pick me up and we will visit the places I've served and friends from the mission. I am looking forward to this experience -- it will be wonderful to see the people that I love with my family.
This week has been crazy busy. It just doesn't slow down, not even your last day! On Sunday Sunny and his son Jim Yang entered the waters of baptism. They asked us to baptize them. The service was beautiful and the Spirit was strong. The Yang family invited several of their Chinese friends and they enjoyed the service as well.
The Yang family is amazing! This is Jim, his brother Neil, their parents Lianna and Sunny, and Sunny's parents.
For those of you in Moab, my homecoming talk will be in the Moab 2nd Ward sacrament meeting next Sunday the 18th at 9am. Address is 475 W 400 N, Moab UT. All are welcome.
Maybe it hasn't hit me yet, but I thought I would be freaking out right now. Honestly I feel at peace with it all. If one word could describe my feelings it would be "fulfilled." The choice to serve a mission has been the greatest decision of my life. This has been the best two years of my life and for my life. I am eternally grateful to my Father in Heaven for this opportunity to serve Him and His children. I testify that this work is true.
