|Sure loved Stella. I will miss all the good times zipping around in my car.|
When I decided to leave on a mission 5 months ago I knew I had just signed up for the hardest thing I will have ever done. And I hadn't even thought about how hard it would be to say goodbye to all my family, friends, students and loved ones. I have been so blessed to be surrounded by the best people all my life. They have helped me become who I am today. I love every memory and moment we share. Saying goodbye is a scary and heartbreaking thing. Although I am very sad to say goodbye I can't wait to say Hello to the people in Nicaragua. I can't wait to fall in love with them like I have with my friends here. I can't wait to share the joy I feel every day because of the Gospel with my brothers and sisters in Nicaragua. Because I have been given much I too must give. I know it will be a great reunion when I return and am reunited with all my loved ones. Right now I am locking them in my heart to keep safe while I serve the Lord. I have already felt my heart grow 2 sizes bigger to fit all the people I will meet in Nicaragua. I love my Lord, I know this is the true church and that is why I must serve.
I can't say thank you enough for all the love I felt from everyone! I think I may be the luckiest girl in the world to be surrounded by such incredible people. God be with you til we meet again!
April 30th I will be leaving to serve in the Managua Nicaragua North Mission! Sunday, April 28th, I will be speaking in church at 1:00. I would love to see any or all of you there. Our church building is on the corner of 9600 N. 6000 W. in Highland. Later that evening we will be having an open house from 6:00-7:30. There will be refreshments, visiting, goodbyes and lots of laughs. All are welcome to stop by! This will be held at my home. I would love to see you at church and/or the open house later on!
