"Dad, Im supposed to be home!"
Just a laugh, dont worry! Just a quick update. We still continue with the Macias family with a date for the 10th but they didnt come to church. We even did a chapel tour with them the night before and still nothing. Just gotta keep going.
Since this is my last letter that I will send home, I would simply like to share my testimony.
I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I know that God lives and loves us all personally. Christ is ALWAYS there to pick us up when we fall and help us fix whatever we have to fix. I think that is the thing that I have come to know most on the mission. The Atonement is real. There are many things that I was able to fix and get better at, yet there are many things to do in that regard. No other Man on earth is capable of giving His life so that others could live forever.
People CAN change. I have seen hearts of rock turn to broken hearts. Also drug addicts, alcoholics, and delinquents change their lives for this Gospel. Repentance lightens burdens. If anyone needs to repent, DO IT. Dont delay. I know that God forgives sins and mistakes.
Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. The Book of Mormon is true. It changes lives. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the current prophet of the Lord. Leaders in the church are called by inpsiration, not application.
Families can be together forever. The Priesthood of God works miracles if used worthily. Missionary work is the best thing ever! There really is no satisfaction greater than helps souls come unto Christ. How can this not be true? I know that God answers prayers and makes things known unto us as we ask with real intent. Patience, obedience, and humility are traits needed to see miracles. I know all of this to be true, and I do so in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Couldnt help it :)
After he said he would come to church :)
