In less than two days, I will be a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have waited for this day for the past 4 1/2 months, I have prepared my entire life.
Who am I, and what am I doing?
So it’s almost time…
I am getting pretty nervous, except it is more of a “nervous for the unknown” instead of a “nervous because of what I am doing”. I know what I am doing is right for me at this time. Missions aren’t for everyone, but for me, I feel like I am right where I am supposed to be. I know this is going to be the hardest thing that I will ever do in my life, but I don’t give up and I know the Lord will help me through all of my struggles. I have started my goodbyes, and that is tough. The only reason it is manageable, is because every single person I know is supporting me in this decision. Once I leave, I wont have access to a computer so my family will be updating posts via letters and emails I will send to them.
So before I leave I want to thank all of the people in my life who have helped me, and who have supported my decision to serve. I love my family, I don’t know what I would do without them. I know that the LDS church is the true church. I am so grateful to have that knowledge. I will see you all in two years!
