My mission is winding down and it is just heart breaking for me to leave all these people. It has really set in now leaving my area of Clovis 2 and finishing my time as assisntant to the president. I won't be working with a lot of missionaries and members and investigators that I have grown to love so much. Life moves on though and I am excited at the same time to move on with life and do more and to see you all soon.
I get in Monday night at 10:00pm so I will need to get released the next day and any time that works for President Carter is fine with me. As for my traveling in the mission I will be with a lot of different companionships but as I move from one to another the zone leaders will most likely transport me so I won't be alone ever. I am excited to go help all these missionaries and go up and down the mission.
We only had one baptism on Sunday because Justin and Allison had to push their baptism again because her mom won't let her be baptized. Even though it was only one, it was a GREAT baptism and will be the last of my mission. The girl's name is Lexi Sjodin and I love the Sjodin family so much. I got the opportunity to work with this family as they came back to activity and baptized Lexi. Brother Sjodin already made plans for me to come back and go to the beach with his family and hang out haha. They are wonderful.
Anyway I am very up and down as I am so happy and full of joy but will miss with all my heart this hallowed ground where I have come to really know my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ and His true church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I apologize that I forgot my cable but I got some great pictures lately of the baptism and fun stuff so I promise pictures for next week. I love you all and continue to pray for you and I am thankful for your prayers too. Keep being a missionary every day!
