Well babes, this is it!
Last email as a full-time missionary.
These past 18+ months have been quite the gnarly ride.
Constantly being humbly broken down and mercifully lifted up.
Encountering a plethora of emotions namely disappointment, heartache, confusion, amazement, extreme happiness, incredible joy!
As I reflect upon my mission, I am taken back by indescribable, immense gratitude. Any magnificent word comprised by the most scholarly mortal mind could not accurately describe the feelings of gratitude I have developed for my Heavenly Father and Savior.
Very precious moments have been had, and these people and this place will forever occupy a large piece of my heart.
|ALL of the boys came to church yesterday! Ah. We filled up a whole middle bench :,)
And a couple of the boys wanted to go up and bear their testimonies but they were SO nervous so they wrote them out. hahah ah I love them SO much.

|Sister Dohner and Sister Hoffman|
|Me with President and Sister Henrie--Man, I am going to miss them!|
I had a big awesome thing written out for today, but I just ain't feelin' it and no one likes long emails anyway, so I'll just do the Spark notes version and say:
I have been forever changed by this gospel, these people, and by love. I am grateful.
And I'd be nothing without the outpouring of love and constant support of you babes. So THANK YOU! You have rocked my life like Avril.
Cannot wait to hold you tight in a hot minute :)
You are my ROCK.
With much gratitude, Farewell--
