Week 100 (08/14/2017)

Hello everyone!

Well, I hope that you get a chance to read or see this email before I get home. This week I finish my time as a missionary. Once it started I thought a lot about these last weeks (probably too much) and now that they're here I never thought it would actually arrive. I don't really know how to feel to be finishing these two years and return to normal life. Haha!

I feel good about everything I've done here but the idea of going home and not being a missionary is a feeling I can't really understand. I'm really going to miss the friends and experiences I have made here. These two years have changed my life and things won't be the same after this. I have learned to love missionary work and Mexico. I have really learned to love the people of Coahuila and have loved the opportunities to serve them. I have loved all of my companions even with the difficult moments. I have learned from all of them and I have learned something new in every place I have been. I will never forget the time I have spent here nor the people I have met.

I am so grateful to have served as a missionary for these two years. I know that what I have learned here will change my life forever. I testify of the importance of missionary work and the blessings that we can all receive through our service. Heavenly Father loves all of His children and he wants us all to have the chance to live His gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives and gives us true happiness. I've seen the change in the families and individuals I have taught and I have seen the change in my own life. The gospel is the only way we can improve and become like Jesus Christ. I ant everyone in the world to hear this message and to apply it in their lives. It makes me so sad to see those around me who don't accept the message. I don't get angry with them I just wish that they knew the joy they could have.

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of Christ and that we are all God's servants. He expects much of us. If we dedicate ourselves to Him and sacrifice our will for His we can become something so much greater. I know this is the truth. I know because God has shown it to me.

I love you all and I am very excited to see you all in a few days. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and for all your support.
