Last post! The End....

Wow.... This is it, the last email. Never saw this coming. When I started this mission I never thought the end would come. It wasn't bad, two years just felt like an infinite amount of time. But dang, did that go by fast. I have spent a lot of time this last week reflecting on my past areas, past companions, past members, past investigators, past memories, the good times and the bad. It's been a roller coaster of a two years, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I know that my mission has been perfect for me. Every experience, every area, every person, has been just what I needed at just the right time to grow and become the man my Father in Heaven wants me to be. I've learned so much, and I can't even begin to describe all of it in one email. This has been an incredibly surreal week, and a great one to end on. We've had lots of fun, and we've had lots of good times with the members here. They threw a farewell party on Friday that we invited lots of investigators to, and had a great time. We had dinner with the bishop and his wife last night, which was great. He is stinking one of my favorite people. Gave me lots of good advice about life, marriage and what not. And at church, I went to the young women's class instead of gospel principles.  Elder Skinner and I got asked to bear our testimonies and share an experience about the priesthood, that was a blast. And now today, we are going to asahikawa for the flipping third time. Haha! So much travel this transfer, it's been crazy.
    I've really felt the sweet presence of the Holy Ghost this week, comforting me and pressing me to keep going to the end. And telling me that the lord is, happy with my work. Particularly yesterday while taking the sacrament, I was praying, and I just had the most overwhelming feeling of gratitude and love for the lord, and for my mission. I probably looked pretty silly, crying up on the front row.
Hehe. This really has been the greatest two years of my life. I've been able to prepare for the rest of my life in ways I never could've imagined. I love the Lord. He is my Savior. I love my Heavenly Father.
And I so desperately want to return to them for eternity with those I hold dear and near to my heart. This church is true. It is inspired of God, and led by his prophet.
   I know. I really do know. I can't wait to see all of you again soon. Leaving Japan and my Japanese people will be the hardest thing to do, but I know that this has to be. Thank you for all of you're undying support and love for these two years. I love all of you.
   With all my love, 

       Elder Dialogue

  2. Hi,
    May I ask you for a favor? As my blog has little traffic at present, I am trying to generate some more, because I use it to sell my company’s products. More visits will increase my blog’s “Google Images” ranking and visibility. I am asking you to visit my blog occasionally, even though it may not be of particular interest to you. Cordial thanks.
