I might not have His name on my chest, but His name will always be in my heart"

Oh my goodess.... I don't even have the words to explain how crazy it is to think that this will be the last time I will be writing my family as a missionary. 

I have enjoyed every single second of being a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been so blessed to have had the experiences I have had and to meet the people I have had the privileged to meet.  I have changed and grown in so many ways! I have come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ and strengthened my relationship with my Father in Heaven. I know why I'm here and what I need to do to be happy. I know that if I keep on this path I will not only be happy now, but I will be able to have eternal joy and happiness FOREVER! 

We took Antonio to the temple this week to do baptisms for the dead, he loved it! When we were leaving he said "it feels good saving family:)" haha he's so amazing! 

Another miracle this week IRIS IS GETTING BAPTIZED TOMORROW!!! And guess who gets to baptize her? Her son Antonio:) It's the happiest thing in the whole world! I can not even explain the joy I feel knowing that this family will be sealed together in the temple one day and enjoy all the blessings that our Heavenly Father has for them:) 

I know that these past 18 months have changed my life and the life of my future family:)
And that the atonement of Jesus Christ is real, that we really can become more like our Savior if we apply the atonement in our lives.

 I know that the only way to apply the atonement in our lives is through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I also know that we have the fullness of this gospel because the gospel was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith.
And I know all of this because I have read the evidence of this restoration (the Book of Mormon)  and received an answer, directly from God, that it is true. 

 I have and I will continue to invite everyone everywhere to do the same:)

Love you all so much and I hope you have an AMAZING WEEK!

I went to the temple for the "departing missionary temple trip", it was Great! But it was also kind of sad... I'm excited to see my family but I don't want leave! Haha but it'll be good and I'm excited for what life has in store for me (#traveling) ;)

I have a lot of pictures so you guys can just look at all the fun we had and how happy we are and I don't even need to say anything more:) 

-Alma 37:36- (I have been loving this scripture this week!!!)

-pray to Heavenly Father for help
-do what He would want you to do 
-go where He would want you to go
-think what He would have you think
-give Him all your sadness and pain and in return He will give you peace and joy
