hey momma

Well now its time! I really can't believe how fast the time has gone by. I can still rememeber the first day that I went into the MTC like yesterday. Man I am really gonna miss being a missionary, but I guess this mission is done and the Lord wants me to get on to my other mission.
There are soo many things that I have learned out here these last 2 years but I think the most important thing that I have learned are about the saving principles of the gospel, and of coarse the atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am soo very thankful for my elder brother who suffered and gave his life so that each one of us can have the opportunity to return to the presence of our loving Heavenly Father. I know that I am nothing but an inutil(useless) servant but I also know that as we give everything the our Father in Heaven and try with all our hearts to keep his commandments we can feel of his love and joy. He wants us to be happy, he wants us to receive blessings, he wants us to be with him forever. Now the only way that we can try to pay him back and show him our love is by first, keep his commandments and second, share this marvelous news to everyone we love and know. That is why missionary work is a marvelous work and wonder. I know this church is true. I know God lives as well as his son and my savior Jesus Chirst. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and from his time we have always had a prophet of God who has lead this Church through Revelation! I love this work and I love my God. Thank you so much family for your support, love and example which you have given me. You will never know how much it means to me!!

con mucho mucho AMOR
