Tell The World I'm Coming Home

This week we had exchanges in Dundee, it was great to catch up with Sister Hill again!!  Today we went hiking with the District, It was good fun, lots of banter, I fell in the river (of course...), and overall just a chill way to end my p-day adventures. I said goodbye to most of the ward on Sunday, the Alloa ward is amazing and I love the members so much!

Whoa I can't believe this is it! I've been spit on in Belfast,  adopted by Brazilians in Dublin, climbed the Cliffs of Moher, drank from the waters of Loch Ness, ran the Tay Bridge, spent nine straight hours finding in the Meadows, and dodged drunk men in Paisley. I've driven cars and mega vans, rode trains and buses, flown through storms, trekked the highlands, biked  to castles, and ferried across the Irish Sea.  I've served in all three countries and left a piece of my heart in each.   I've made new family from all over the world and had enough laughs to last me a lifetime. This has been the best adventure of my life!

Above all, I am grateful for the things I have learned. Getting to spend all day, everyday sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ really is the best. My faith has been tested, but the more I study and share, the more my testimony is strengthened. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that through Him, I can become the person He knows I can be. I love reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible and learning more about what I can be doing to better follow Him. I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and the love He has for us all. I know that Christ lives and loves us!

I'm going to miss these countries so much.  My family has grown and grown-- between missionaries, members, and random people on the street that have become some of my closest and dearest friends. There's not much else to say other than how completely grateful I am for this opportunity to serve!! 

Love you all, see you soon!!
