Hola, York Ward Relief Society!

Thank you so much ladies for sending your love & encouraging words through the letters you sent this Christmas. I carefully read each and every one of them, and was just smiling from ear to ear!

I just love being a missionary. I have the great opportunity to meet so many people all over the world. No matter what language, country or race you are, we are ALL God’s children. He desperately wants each and every one of us back! I have come to realize that God does not send angels down from Heaven to save His lost sheep. He sent us. We are always His angels when we are helping others in any capacity we can. I have seen it through simple smiles & kind of acts. Thank you again for your love and support while I am here in Spain. It truly meant the world to me!

I want to leave you with my testimony that -- I know God works through us and that we are His disciples and angels. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and His Atonement is infinite. Infinite in time, death and power. My dear sisters, His plan for us to return is perfect. Heavenly Father has given us everything to succeed in this life and that is through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, please don’t give up. Keep trying. Keep walking in faith. I can promise you Christ is not waiting at the finish line cheering you on—Instead, He is right beside you. Helping you. Pulling with you. I leave this testimony with you in the sacred name, of our brother, friend and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
