Honestly, I could keep going. I love being a missionary. It has litterally been one of the best decisions of my life. It wasnt easy to leave everything behind for a year and a half. And, its still not easy. But, you know what? Its worth it.
I am so greatful to be a representative of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior. And, I am so greatful for His infinite atoning sacrifice. I hope you all have the most rewarding week ever!!
I love you!!!!
