Hasta ver

Well, familia.

This is the last. The last leaf. The last supper. The last melon. The last straw. The last chance. The last...I don`t know what else I can put at the end of last, but there are a lot of lasts in this life.

I can`t believe that I´m creating one now. A last. The last email as a full-time missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The last time I will be writing to you all with a little plaquita en mi pecho and the autoridad given to those called as representatives of Jesus Christ.

The last time I will wish you a "rabbit rabbit" in advance. The last time I will share my testimony through insufficient words. The last time I will enter this email address. The last time I will be in Ecuador on a Monday. The last a lot of stuff. And it`s hard to say goodbye.

Hard to say goodbye to the believing and faith-filled people of Ecuador. Hard to say goodbye to the smells, the dogs, the trash, the trees, the different plants, the cement houses. Hard to say goodbye to the missionaries, to my mission president, to the people who have helped me along this year and a half adventure. Hard to let go of the autoridad I have been given. Hard to not be able to teach with the same poder as antes. Hard to not be as close to my Savior Jesuscrist as His representative.

I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know He is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that this is His church. He personalmente la dirige. It will be a new adventure going home, but I will never forget everything that has happened here. I love being a missionary. I love the Gospel. And I love my Father in Heaven.

See you soon. :]

P.S. can we go blueberry picking when I get home?
