Just a final update, I got my flight plans and Ill be coming home this week. This week has been good but pretty uneventful. I got to go out a few times but my mission president only let me work half the day so I was stuck in my apartment for most of the week.
Thats okay though because I have loved taking this time to truly turn to my Heavenly Father and grow my relationship with Him. Even though everything going on has been hard, Ive found it all to be a blessing. Ive really had the chance to read the Book of Mormon a lot this week and a few verses I loved was in 2 Nephi 9:20-21
20 O how great the holiness of our God! For he knoweth all things, and there is not anything save he knows it.
21 And he cometh into the world that he may save all men if they will hearken unto his voice; for behold, he suffereth the pains of all men, yea, the pains of every living creature, both men, women, and children, who belong to the family of Adam.
Basically I just love this because even though we dont understand everything, our Heavenly Father does and His plan is perfect! He understands our pain, our confusion, and our doubts but because of this we are able to feel happiness and love from Him always.
I love you all and thank you for the continuous support you have shown me while Ive been serving!
