This is my last email home from New Zealand.
I have had lots of requests of things to write home about for my last email...
But first things first, Jackie decided last week that she wanted to get baptized.
Jackie, Vavau and Jaymis are all getting baptized on the 4th and recieving the gift of the Holy ghost on the 5th. We have a very busy week this week with exchanges and getting everything sorted out for the baptism. I am so late emailing today because I was typing up the program.
I don't have words to describe how grateful I am...
So grateful that I got to serve here. So grateful for my companions, investigators, the peopleIi got to help, the people that helped me, the language I get to learn, the challenges that I have overcome, and am yet to overcome.
I would say the most important thing I have learned, or at least one of the most important things I have learned from my mission is how key the spirit is to everything we do in life. If we have the spirit with us, we have purpose, guidance and direction, if not we have darkness and confusion. When I have the spirit with me I am preparing for heaven, and I can feel my Savior standing beside me. Nothing is too hard with the Savior by my side. Every challenge and opposition becomes an opportunity to become more like Him. The very jaws of hell can gape open after me and It will not matter because I know that my Savior is with me every step of the way and if I will just give my self to Him, He will take me back to my Father in Heaven.
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, the Son of God. God is our loving Heavenly Father. He wants everyone to return to live with Him. That is His work and His glory, and I will do everything I can to align my will with His.
Alofa tele atu mo outou!
