Well this is it. Unbelievable that has come to the point that I get to say I am coming home. But before I get to that part of the email, I would like to first share what has happened this week!
Needless to say your last week of your mission flies by, because you meet with all of your investigators, members and just everyone. So we were non stop busy this week! I want to share though one of my biggest miracles of my mission so far. And it takes me back to my greenie days in Leiden. There was an investigator and less active there named John & Tessa. And in order for Tessa to be baptized they needed to get married, so on Thursday I had the great privilege to take a train down to Leiden with Elder Stevenson who also served there, and we had the chance to be a part of that day. It was a beautiful. They were married in the City Hall of Leiden, and one of the greatest parts of the service was the bride and groom have the chance to give a speech to each other. Tessa gave hers and it was so good, she told John she was happy that through him she got to know the Church and that one day they will get to be sealed to each other for eternity and have a family together.. (yes, i cried) This is what missions are all about. Seeing others take the steps into the Gospel. Tessa was then Baptized on Saturday. So hey I did get that last baptism in.
It tears my heart apart saying goodbye to so many good friends, people that I have came in contact with while being here on my mission. They truly have become a part of me in who I am and they feel as if they are my family. It truly is going to be hard to leave a land that holds my heart. I am forever grateful for the experiences I have had and they will forever affect my life. I am happy that I made the decision to come on a mission. You will all get to hear the experiences I have had and how they mean so much to me.
I love you all and can´t wait to see you all soon, for the others that I won´t be seeing soon my email will be firstname.lastname@example.org feel free to send me your weekly emails and also if you want to talk personally! SEE YOU SOON!!! TOT ZIENS!!!
