Remember that one time I went on a mission?

So, this is my last email!

Sister Meyers and I were soooOoOoOoOOoOOOOooo close to hitting the standards of excellence this week! We worked and worked and tonight is my last night of proselyting. Crazy!

Monday we played football with our zone, which really meant the Elders played football and we ran around the field pretending we knew what we were doing. We also picked up a new investigator that we've been trying super hard to start teaching and it all finally worked out!! Hurray!!!

Tuesday we taught a million lessons and it was GREAT!

Wednesday was MLC and it was great like always because President Chambers is super inspired and we learned a lot about the Atonement. It's such a blessing to have him as a mission president!

Thursday was my final interview with President and it went super well!

Friday the departing missionaries went to the Salt Lake Temple for a session, what an incredible experience!!!

Saturday we worked our tails off

YESTERDAY OUR INVESTIGATOR TOM TOTALLY BORE HIS TESTIMONY IN SACRAMENT MEETING!!!! We haven't stopped smiling since!!! HE IS SO AWESOME!!!!!! And he was totally fearless about it!!!!! It was the best last Sunday a missionary could ever ask for! Then that night we had dinner with a family whose daughters left the Church a few years ago and they sat and listened to the lesson and the dad walked outside with us and told us that that was the first time in 5 years his daughters had sat in when the missionaries were over. AAAH! What a miracle!

I'm not ready for real life. Ugh.

I love seeing how the gospel really does bless us an individuals and as families. I know this Church is true, I know that Jesus Christ lives and He leads it today. I will always be a missionary. I am different now than when I left. I'm better and I'm stronger, and even though serving a mission was the hardest thing I've done this far in my life, I would do it a hundred times over if I could. It is the best thing I have ever done.

Love you! Be happy!

Sojo for life

This week we had some meetings and stuff. Sister Meyers and I spoke
yesterday in third ward...we live with the bishop of that ward so we
weren't too surprised when he asked us, haha.

Our awesome investigator Tom is getting baptized! We set a date for a
couple weeks out. Sad that I won't be here for it, but I'm so excited
for his family!

No freak snow storms but lots and lots of rain last week.

Saturday we met the Samoan elders at the stake center to get our keys
to the building and it turns out there was a Hindu celebration
happening there that night! So Sister Meyers went that evening to
check it out and see if there was anyone to teach, it was super cool!!
The next day we ate with a family from India and the husband was a
mission president there a few years back and we were able to teach
some of their family friends about the Restoration. It's not every
weekend we get to eat Indian food twice, so we feel pretty lucky.

Also, we ate dinner with one of our former investigators and he made
elk. I ate elk. Weird.

I'm really sad that I have to go home next week, but I'm excited too.
I never thought I'd love Utah so much!

Well, Sister Meyers and I have to go do preparation day things now.
Love you all!
