The last couple weeks have been such a blessing--Matt Marquez is getting baptized on July 11th, and Casey Cook has a baptismal date now, as well! The Lord has blessed us with miracles, and I couldn't be more grateful. I know I was supposed to be here in the Wellington Ward for the last six months, and I know I was supposed to be here in the Fort Collins, Colorado Mission for the past eighteen months. Now, it is time for me to turn the next page of my life. I know the Lord won't leave me; I know He will be here for me in all I do. He is constant.
I have a burning testimony of this gospel. I know Christ is the Head of this church. We are watched over so much more than we realize. I have received guidance and direction from the prophets, seers, and revelators; they are called of God. Their words are truth. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have gotten nearer to God by abiding by its precepts than by any other book. We have the same organization that Christ established. Covenants bring power. God always keeps His promises when we keep ours. The gift of the Holy Ghost is SO real, and I know that He will guide us, warn us, comfort us, testify of truth, and so much more. With faith, all things are possible! The gospel of Jesus Christ is the way. I feel so blessed to have seen the Atonement change people's lives as they have lived His gospel and sought for truth. God will answer your prayers and fill you with light as you live His gospel and obey His commandments. All of it is true--I know it is. I pray each of you will continue to seek Him. He wants you to know Him! I am so grateful for His love and the Atonement of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Thank you all for the support, love, encouragement, and prayers you have given me. :) You have all been so instrumental in the hastening of the Lord's work.
I love you all!!!!!!!!!
