Very Last Email!

Well, it looks like this it y'all! It's been a full and exciting two
years here in Texas and Louisiana. There's been so much that's
happened I guess it would take about 106 emails to share about it, and
then some. It's been extremely humbling to serve in this calling, to
know that I've been working side by side with it Savior these last two
years has been a learning experience that I will always be grateful
for. I feel like Ammon after his mission, in Alma 26, "Now have we not
reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had
so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began; yea, and my
joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all
power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things,
and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will
repent and believe on his name." I truly know God will forgive all who
come unto him and repent. He is our father and he loves us. All he
wants is for us to come back home and live with him. He's holding out
his hands all the day long, asking us to come back to him. I know that
we can, I've seen it happen in my life and in the lives of so many
others. I know this is only possible because of Jesus Christ, he is
our Savior, the light the truth and the way. This is His church, it's
true it's true it's true! Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, The book
of Mormon is proof of that, I know it is because it testifies of
Christ. The spirt has testified this to me, and is testifying it to me
now as I write this, what more proof do I need than that?
I love this gospel, I've loved my mission, and I love the Lord. I'm
excited to see what he's got in store for me next! For anyone whose
interested, I'll be giving a talk in church on Sunday the 13th of
August back in good old Mapleton Utah, at 10:50.  I'll get you the address! Hope I can see you!
I sure do love y'all, but I love the Lord more, I'm so glad I could
serve him these past two years.
