July 1st, 2013. Last one!!!!
Family, This is the last letter of i dont even know how many. I actually tried what destin said, about how he thought about it like it was a another transfer, but your brain knows better. Mom and Dad, thank you for sacrificing so much to send Destin and <i on missions at the same time. And also to everyone else, i know other people helped out, i am so grateful to them. Its strange to think its all coming to an end, well, actually i thought that back in may too, but this time its real hahaha. I just wanted to say thanks and dont worry, i have too much to do to waste a minute of the time i have been given. I havent even thought about packing haha.
Our new mission president got here, and its been awesome to be able to get to know him. His wife wants mom to know that she loves me and all the missionaries and says thanks to you guys for supporting me. <president said something today in the councel that i liked. Life with out this year and a half or 2 years, would be missing out on half of your life. i really liked that. I feel like i will be able to be a much better member, and person all around from all the things i have learned. They say a missionary learns in 2 years what a member learns in 20, and i really think thats true.
I love you all so much, thank you for everything, i plan on using all the time i have left to share the gospel and change people lives. i know that after they take off the badge, you still share the gospel, but its different. Anyway, i love you all tons. I love peru so much, and i want you all to know that this has been the best year and a half of my life. not for the cool places, not for the language, but for the friendships i will take with me, the memories i will never forget, and the relationship i have developed with Christ and my Heavenly Father.
Gracias por ustedes que están aquí en peru, sepan que les quiero mucho, y les llevo en mi corazón. Gracias por su amor y sus enseñanzas.
