Well family....
This is it.
I don't have much to say.  It was another great week and I gave it my all.  The very last day, we had the option to go and grab something to eat before our mission coordination meeting or try one last door.  I am grateful that we prayed and knocked on one last door.  She wouldn't even agree to listen 15 minutes because it would "be too long" but she agreed to a 5 minute message.  Well we got in, and as she felt the spirit she ended up being super interested and would like to listen again.  I really felt the spirit testifying to me that I have fought a good fight.  And I know the fight isn't over.

Raymond, Maryfe, Storm, and Roji Sanchez, and France, Aldine, and Cloven Teus.  Some of my favorites! 
I don't feel happy or sad yet.  It just feels normal haha but I am sure it will become real very soon.
But I really know with all of my heart that God lives.  I really can't deny it.  I have witnessed and felt too much.  I am so amazed at how Heavenly Father knows each of us perfectly and everything has a reason and wise purpose.  Everything is centered on Jesus Christ and His atonement.  I think that before my mission I gained a testimony of the cleansing power.  Here on my mission, I have gained such a strong testimony of the enabling power.

 Looks like my scripture I chose for my mission has held true to the end... Ether 12:27.  I can't even believe how much I have changed and transformed the past year and a half and I have so much hope that I can still and will continue to change in this new adventure.   I have witnessed this cleansing and enabling power in my life and in the lives of those surrounding me here in the Philippines.  I know Jesus Christ lives and because he suffered, died, and resurrected we have the chance to repent and return.  Now it's up to us.  I also know that they appeared to Joseph Smith, that 14 year old boy, in that grove of trees.  The spirit even testified it to me as I recited the first vision for the last time in my last lesson.  Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God.  This is the only true church.  And the Book of Mormon is the word of God.  Really all these things are so important to me because I know that I can live with all of you forever.  I am so grateful.  I love all of you so much.
This is my witness in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
