Emily's Last Letter

Well as far as missionary slang goes I am now what they call a dead missionary.  I have found that the mission is like life times 100 --the good things are really good and the bad things are really bad.  But I have loved every instant of my mission.  It was the best decision of my life to come and serve the Lord.  I have learned more about who I am, and what I am capable of thanks to our savior Jesus Christ.  I have gotten to know better who He is and what He has done for me and for everyone of us.  I know that the Lord wants to best for us.  And the best ONLY comes through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  That is why it is so hard to be a member (or a missionary) of the church.  Because hard things are always the things that last and the things that end up changing us in the end.  So I may be dead as far as the mission goes but I know that death is only the beginning.  I love you all!

For the last time,

Hello my dears. 

Here I am just living the life of a missionary.  It is amazing. I am pretty happy to be here.  This week was awesome.  We found some new people and we had some investigators at church on Sunday! It was great! God has been blessing us a lot in our area.  Not everything is perfect but I am happy here.  

This week we brought one of our funny investigators to church.  A little old man, we stopped by for him at 7:30 in the morning and there he was waiting for us! He is great, even though we lost him.  After Sunday School he went to the bathroom and we were waiting for him to enter sacrament meeting but he never showed up!! So we freaked out a little but we never found him.  It was funny, but then again.. not so funny.  Afterward we went to visit him and he told us that when he got done in the bathroom he came out and they had locked the doors... so he didn't wait.  He just went home.  Haha it was sad.  Poor guy thought that we had locked him out.  We took this other kid to church but he thought the whole thing was just weird. Oh well.  Cada Quien.  

Anyway things here are as amazing and crazy as always!   I love you all and I hope you are happy and healthy.. I am sorry I don't have cooler stories to share.. But the ones that I share I share with love.

Some people think I don't know a buttload of crap about the gospel....


I loved conference with my whole heart! It was amazing and I hope you all enjoyed the things that you learned.  What I learned is that I have to get married... oh dear.  Everything talked about the family!!  

 This week has been marvelous! This area is a little difficult because it is the center of the city!  But I am happy to be here! My companion is awesome. Her name is Hermana Menendez and she is from Honduras.  We get along really well and pretty much the entire time we are just laughing together.  There are so many things to see here in the centro.  The people here are very liberal... very.   They are a wide variety of hippies and hipsters. Anyway I love you all so much! I hope you love me.  BYEE!!! BE HAPPY BE MORMON!!! WHY? Because being a mormon is the best.  If you doubt it, stop.

P.S. I totally forgot to send a large letter last week.  So I am hoping that these amazing photos will recompensate for my lack of discipline.  I love you all.  I love Xalapa and I love my mission!!! I hope you are all doing well.
