Well I don’t have much time today but I wanted to send a quick note.
Mostly I just want to express how grateful I am for the chance I have
had to serve the sweet ppl of Nicaragua and my Lord. The mission has
changed my life. I will cherish and remember these moments forever.
Nicaragua will ALWAYS be in my heart. I feel so blessed to have been
able to get to know my Savior better and help the ppl here get to know
Him as well. The people I have met, the spirit I have felt and the
pure love of Christ that has grown in my heart have changed me for
I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I know He lives and loves us. I know
this is His work and that nothing is impossible for Him. I love my
sweet brothers and sisters here and cant wait to live with them again
in the eternities. I love being a missionary and will be one for the
rest of my life. Thank you for your love and support.
Because I have been given much I too must give.

Well the past couple weeks have been really crazy. I have had many experiences that I will never forget. We have faced several challenges but the Lord has always been there leading and guiding us. I feel so grateful for His guidance and constant love. Prayer has changed my life. I love talking to God. I know He listens to me and knows me perfectly. I feel so grateful that He is always willing to talk back as well.
This week has probably been one of the hardest of all my life but also one of the most beautiful. I have never felt the Spirit and love of God so strongly in all my life. After facing several challenges this week I went into our meeting with Elder Alonso with a heart full of prayers and questions. And the Lord answered me. Elder Alonso is really incredible and I learned so much from him. I felt such a beautiful spirit throughout the entire meeting and I received lots of revelation. I was in charge of a choir and it went so well. Hermana Miza and I also sang a duet that turned out really nice as well. After almost the whole meeting I felt very content with all that I had learned and felt. And then the Lord extended his love towards me even more. Elder Alonso felt prompted to bestow upon us an apostolic blessing before leaving and it was the most beautiful blessing I have ever heard. Family, it was in this moment that I came to know that God is my father. He is aware of me and He loves me. I felt as if He was there talking to me and comforting me. I will never forget this moment. I know miracles exist and that with God nothing is impossible.
I was able to talk with Elder Alonso after the meeting and he helped me to feel so much peace and love in my heart. It was a sacred experience for me that I will hold dear forever. I look forward to sharing it with you. The next day we had Consejo with Presidente, Elder Alonso, Elder Beck and Elder Durante. It was a meeting that I will never forget. I felt such a sweet and powerful spirit. I learned so much from Gods servants and can't wait to put it all into practice.
I just want to say that I know Christ lives and that his atonement is real. I know that all the wrong in the world can be made right by Him. I love being a missionary. This experience has changed my life for forever and I look forward to being a missionary all my life.
Love you all!
