I know that I've skipped out on some of the past weeks but I thought I would try to end on a somewhat good note. This week I will be heading to the mission office in Fuengirola and finishing my time as a full time missionary. I know that at this point it would be nice if I could say everything that I've learned but I don't think I have enough time or the words to type it all out. I have looked back on this past year and a half of my life and feel immensely blessed. I feel so blessed of the time and effort that the Lord has put into helping me. If I have learned anything on the mission its that I have so much to learn. I have had the chance to learn for each and everyone one of my wonderful companions. Starting with my wonderful trainer Hermana Ashby who taught me that you can work hard and have fun at the same time and was also so patient with me. Hermana Smith who came from
Malaga and helped me see the importance of diligence and perseverance. Hermana Merrill who helped me learn the importance of obedience as we walked up and down the hills of the outskirts of Malaga. My dear Hermana Viglione who showed me the importance of truly loving the people and showed me how we can learn if we truly have humility. Hermana Gale who helped me learn patience in the pueblo of Valdapeñas as we knocked on every house possible. My adventure of starting Elche
up again with Hermana Jenkins who helped me learn how to keep calm and centered in every situation and realizing yet again that you learn so much more than you teach in training. Then heading to Alicante with my trio and having the chance to soak up the knowledge of Hermana Jones
and then getting to be with Hermana Anderson for 4 months as she taught me how to constantly work on our weaknesses to make them strengths and end with Hermana Swenson as she shows me how to keep going and always have fire to do the work. I don't know where I would be with out these wonderful Hermanas. They really have become my sisters and I feel so blessed to have had the chance to be taught by each if them. I know that I am who I am because they Lord allowed them to guide me. I love being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints here in the south of Spain and even though people may not be able to recognize me by the name tag I'm wearing I will
make sure they recognize me by the spirit that I leave with them. Thank you all for the support that y'all have given me from my time out here.
See you soon!
