Everyday is filled with such joy and sadness. I feel joy for the love I have been blessed with thus far. Joy for the service you've rendered, for the love notes I've found, for the smiles you've offered. Every moment has become bittersweet knowing it may be the last for a long while. And even if this is the end I know that is okay because that is God's will and I've felt more love these past few years than I ever thought possible. And more than I ever thought I deserved. I hope you serve with all of your heart for these next two years. I hope the memory of me keeps your heart warm. May your hope for the future provide strength for the rough days ahead. The people of mystery state/country will be so blessed by your knowledge, testimony, and spirit. I can put aside my own dire need to have you close for those people in need. The only greater gift than these selfless years you've given me is the sweet message of the Gospel that eager souls need to hear. Deliver that gift with pride. Don't look back. I know this will not be easy, but worth it. Thus is life, thus is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, ye are little children, and ye have not as yet understood how great blessings the Father hath in his own hands and prepared for you;

"And ye cannot bear all things now; nevertheless, be of good cheer, for I will lead you along.""… I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left … and mine angels (shall be) round about you, to bear you up. "… The kingdom is yours and the blessings thereof are yours, and the riches of eternity are yours."
