I have learned that I REALLY am a daughter of Heavenly Father, that He loves me and knows me perfectly and completely. I know He knew exactly what He was doing when I was sent to the Cebu Mission. It took me 18 months and a mission halfway across the world to truly understand that I have a loving Heavenly Father and an older brother Jesus Christ and that they are REAL- but I'm so thankful for that knowledge that I now have.
In my final testimony at zone conference last Thursday, I started out my testimony by saying how much I have loved my mission because it has taught me that I can do hard things.I have learned through the hard times (and good times) on my mission how to use and rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Christ didn't just suffer for our sins but he gave us a way to reach our full potential and become better people. I know I still have so much to learn but I am so thankful for the knowledge I now have that I don't have to do it alone.
I can't even begin to express how thankful I am for my mission for every single companion I have had, for all of the areas I have served in, for every person that has come into my life these past 18 months. I have learned to love and see everyone as a child of God.
I am so thankful for my family who has been so loving and supportive all the way. I am thankful I've been able to help people come closer to their eternal families all while not having to worry about my family back at home.
I had a lot more I wanted to say but as I sit here and write this, I have so many thoughts going through my mind but overall I just want to let you know how thankful I am for my mission and for the opportunity to love and serve God's children in the Philippines. They have changed me.
I'll be home in a few days. SEE you all soon :)
