How are you all doing? I hope great! I hope you had a wonderful christmas. My russian christmas here was fabulous!
Well as some of you know this is my last email. I leave early morning next pday (wednesday) to fly home to Idaho, so that means I wont be doing email next week.
This last week though was great and we had a lot of success. We had some really good meeting and saw some small miracles that I would love to tell you about....... but I'll just tell you about all of that next week when I see you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHA Well have a great week and New Years and see and talk to you all next week!!!!!!!! :)))))))))))
I can't end though without telling you all how much I am thankful that I served on a mission. This last 18 months I have spent on this mission have been the best of my life. The joy that comes from spreading the gospel is indescribable but one of the most joy full feelings ever. I dont know why i am so lucky to have been born into the true church and to have had the opportunity to be raised in the gospel with a wonderful, loving, and faithful family. The Savior and his gospel is EVERYTHING to me! A life without it is not one i want to live. My time here in Russia is to quickly coming to an end, and it hurts. I have grown so much to love these people here and this great country of Russia. As Ammon said, "Yea, I desire to dwell among this people for a time; yea, and perhaps until the day I die." I wish i could be with these people forever, but I know thats not possible and it hurts. I am so thankful for the time that the lord has given me to be here. I know I will think of my mission every day for the rest of my life and remember the amazing time that it has been.
Well i cant wait to see you all and tell you A LOT more about my mission :)
