Last week in the mission field

This is my last email I will be sending you as a full time missionary. It is strange to think that my mission is almost over. In these past 18 months I have grown so much. I do not feel like the same person I was when I left. it is amazing how much serving a mission has changed me. I left home as a girl, and I am coming back as a woman. I am sad to be leaving, but I am excited to see family and friends again. I feel so fortunate to serve so close to home because it makes it a lot easier to meet up with my converts or to visit areas I served in. Serving a full time mission was definitely the best decision for my life. I have had the opportunity to see many miracles wrought by faith. 

On Friday, I had the opportunity to see one of the investigators I worked with when I was serving in Gatineau get baptized. His name is John Craig. When he left the water he was glowing with joy and happiness. He was found by a street contact. He had a few concerns about being a member of the church, but was able to overcome them through faith in Jesus Christ and the power of prayer. It was a happy reunion to see him again. I am glad he is doing well.

I am not quite sure what to expect in life as a Returned Missionary. I know that God will help me figure it out =)
