Week 106: It Is The End! And The Beginning.

A Gif of me jumping in the leaf pile

This is the last blog I will write on my mission. 

It was a good week! Thanksgiving happened. We had 3 meal appointments. We were stuffed. We had lots of different kinds of pie! 

We also had some fun raking leaves this week. Elder Crockett wanted to make a huge leef pile. So we jumped in it. 😆

I am super glad I went on mission! I've learned a lot and helped a lot of people. It has been great getting to know all the people here in the various places I have been. 

I started in the MTC for 3 weeks and started in the mission field in the Normal ward for 19 weeks, then the Rockford 1st ward for 6 weeks, then the Naperville YSA ward for 12 weeks, then the St Charles ward for 24 weeks, then the Bloomingdale 1st ward for 24 weeks, then the Kewanee branch for 12 weeks, and finally the Woodridge 1st ward for my last 6 weeks. That makes 106 weeks. Crazy. 

I know that all the prophets of this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are true prophets. I know that Christ is the head of this church. I know the Bible, the Pearl of Great Price, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Book of Mormon are God's word. I know that he has revealed much and continues to reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. His word is not limited. 

"Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also.
"And I do this that I may prove unto many that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and that I speak forth my words according to mine own pleasure. And because that I have spoken one word ye need not suppose that I cannot speak another; for my work is not yet finished; neither shall it be until the end of man, neither from that time henceforth and forever.
"Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words; neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written.
"For I command all men, both in the east and in the west, and in the north, and in the south, and in the islands of the sea, that they shall write the words which I speak unto them; for out of the books which shall be written I will judge the world, every man according to their works, according to that which is written.
"For behold, I shall speak unto the Jews and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the Nephites and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the other tribes of the house of Israel, which I have led away, and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto all nations of the earth and they shall write it.
"And it shall come to pass that the Jews shall have the words of the Nephites, and the Nephites shall have the words of the Jews; and the Nephites and the Jews shall have the words of the lost tribes of Israel; and the lost tribes of Israel shall have the words of the Nephites and the Jews." - 2 Nephi 29.
In the name of Jesus Christ amen.
