Well this is it. I can't believe this time has come to write my last letter of the mission. I love my mission, Ecuador Quito Norte. I have grown to love the culture, the food, the people, the geography, the everything about my most beautiful country of Ecuador. The things I have learned here can't be written or explained or anything but through spiritual eyes that someone can understand. I have grown and changed. I have become someone I feel proud of. It does not mean it is the end. I have a long way to go but I feel very blessed to have come to this mission. I have been changed more by the people I think than I helped them to change. In every sector I have left a piece of my heart. I remember saying in my first skypé home that my heart was in Hyde Park and with my family. I can't say that anymore. I am not sure much of it is there any more. I think it has been split into 6 different parts and I am leaving it all here. It hurts. Its hard. I've cried many times this past week and feel that I will continue to cry this week. I am leaving one of my homes. And returning to the other. I feel that I wouldn't have become as much as I am without the mission.
I know that this is the true church. I know that my Savior Lives. He loves me and I have grown closer to him. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father. I know he created a perfect plan for me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a true and powerful prophet of god. I know that Thomas S Monson is the true and living prophet today. I know that the Priesthood was restored and it is the literal power that God gives to man to help in the Salvation of his Children. I know that the Obra Misional is the Lords work. I know that it is inspired and that it changes one more than any other thing on this earth. I know that Families are Forever. My family is huge now and I plan on being with each member. I truly know these things are true and I know them to be that way because I lived them and the Lord has blessed me and testified to me through his Spirit. I love this work and love the 19 months that I have been here. They have not been easy. But if it would have been that way it wouldn't have been as fulfilling or fun. Everyday I have seen Gods hand in my life and am sooooo blessed for it.
All in all I Love being a Missionary!
