Where I'm writing my last email home... I have been overwhelmed with all sorts of feelings..... Some I don't even have words to describe. It has been a very good roller coaster to be on... ups, downs, twists turns, and all of it... immense JOY and also sadness. But every time that I feel sad about not seeing people or not being in New Jersey or Pennsylvania ... I can't help but feel grateful for the opportunity that I have been given to even be here as a servant of the Lord. I feel SO blessed. The Lord has been so merciful and kind to me. I am grateful that the spirit reminds me that God is aware of my feelings and aware of what is behind me and ahead of me.
I love being a servant of the Lord and I will continue to be one. I have felt these last few weeks of my mission have been some of the best... I feel that I'm continuing to learn and become better at recognizing and following the spirit which has been a goal my whole mission. I am grateful for the love that I feel bursting from me for all the people here that I have met.. I know that it is Charity.. Christ's love for them that he has given me to be able to feel. I have thought at one time or another "What would my life be like if I had chosen not to serve a mission?" and ... I don't ever want to think about it... There are so many people that I have met that I feel were supposed to be apart of my life... So many wonderful children of God.. My brothers and sisters.. I love them so much.. I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF THE PENNSYLVANIA PHILADELPHIA MISSION!!!!
We are so blessed.
