It isn't particularly easy to say goodbye to my blog. It has been a great year. Despite the pains that I felt, I loved BYU. I learned a lot about myself, my friends both old and new, the gospel, and most importantly of Jesus Christ.
I am not going on a mission because I am particularly eloquent or because the people of Thailand need me. I am going because I need them. They have already taught me, humbled me and amazed me. I am going because God asked me to. For the first time in my life, I felt strongly enough about this decision that I am going through with it. I will pray for the spirit to guide me as I embark on this journey.
God lives. His Son is Jesus Christ. I love them with all my heart. Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Peace for our lives today. And while life seems so crushingly hard, it is worth it. I promise. It's worth it all. With Christ at our sides, we can do anything.
Don't weep. Rejoice that He lives! Rejoice that He loves you. And rejoice that we shall meet again.
With love and blessings,
