This week was GREAT.
We had district conference and we got to watch the broadcast of the Christmas devotional. It was SWEET. Wasn’t the part of that video they showed just AWESOME?? Yeah. It was. I loved it.

Cool moment:
One of the missionary couples (The Shaners) in our mission came to the district conference and sister Shaner knows sign language so she was translating for this one deaf member sitting on the front row. The only problem was that half of the talks were in tagalog and sister Shaner doesn’t speak tagalog so one of the Elders went to sit by sister Shaner and first translate from tagalog to English so that sister Shaner could do the sign language for this girl.

I don’t know why, but it just really touched me. All of that work and translation just so that one girl could receive the messages at district conference. It made me think of how our Heavenly father is always trying to communicate with us and help us to receive His messages. He uses Prophets, the scriptures, the promptings of the Holy Ghost, and even other people.
He really cares that we have that communication and guidance from Him! I am so grateful for prayer and all of the other wonderful means we have to communicate with and stay close to our Heavenly Father and savior in our journey here on earth! We are truly never alone or without guidance!

Well…I don’t know if you realized but this is my last e-mail home to you. Just incase you forgot, I will be arriving in Salt Lake City this coming Friday. I know you’re gonna be really sad to see me, but don’t worry, I have gifts. Be happy.
But seriously, can you believe it? Im coming home now?

This has been the best experience of my whole life. I cannot even explain the things I have learned and how much my testimony has grown. I know now more than I ever have before that this is Christ’s one true church on the earth. Obedience to His commandments is the only way to happiness. Repentance is real. It was made possible by the atonement of our Savior. His love is eternal. This life is a period of testing and trial. This life is a gift. We can become like our Heavenly Father and His son if we are willing to sacrifice and put off the natural man. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It truly is that Iron rod that will lead us safely back to our Heavenly Father. I love the Book of Mormon. I feel the spirit strongly each time I read and ponder its messages. I stand in awe at the miracles that have been performed by faith. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that we can receive personal revelation in this day. He will continue to perform miracles if we have faith in Him and do His will.

Let us continue on our journey back to Him with greater faith and a heart willing to do whatever is required of us!

Thank you all SO MUCH for your support and love and PRAYERS. I have certainly felt it throughout my mission. I love you all deeply and will see you soon!
