On Friday I had the opportunity to go to the LA temple one last time before I head home! It is always such a great experience going to the temple.

On Sunday in Sacrament meeting, it was a very good, spiritual testimony meeting! To end the night, I went to visit a couple families that have had a big impact on my mission and my life for sure!

I love this Gospel. I know that it can change lives. I have seen it so much. I know the joy that comes from within the Gospel as we recognize our identity as children of a loving Father in Heaven and the plan that He has for each and every one of us. I KNOW the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that through Him, we can be saved from death- both physically and spiritually. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and was called of Him, to restore the Church of Jesus Christ back on the earth, with the Priesthood Authority to administer the ordinances necessary for salvation. What a blessing it has been to share this good news with others, and gain a stronger testimony of it for myself.
I love all of you that have helped me and supported me along this path!
