As I am sitting here, looking around, packing my room up, and trying to figure out how in the world I'm going to fit everything in two suitcases, I can't help but feel overwhelmed. These past months, as I've waited to leave on my mission have been some of the best months, but also most confusing in my life. I've had a lot of time to think about what I'm doing, and Why I'm doing it. Why the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Why is it important?
I am just 1 of over 52,000 Missionaries that the church has. Despite the imperfections of the Elders & Sisters who are sharing this message; the work will go forward.
As I post this final blog before leaving for the MTC in less than 24 hours, the main message I want to share is that this Gospel is true. There is something different about it, than any other church on this earth. That difference, is the truth. It is my testimony that if you humbly, and sincerely desire happiness...read the Book of Mormon. Then get down on your knees and ask God if it is true. Guaranteed; He will answer your prayer. This is the message I will be sharing over the next 18 months, and it is also the message I have come to know is true through my own experiences.
Here's to an adventure!!
