I just finished my last full day at the Preston MTC! Tomorrow morning I will be loading a coach at 6:30 and driving thirty miles to my mission home. We all went to the temple today. What a blessing that Holy place is! First, seeing my Elders and Sisters all together in white was enough to move me to tears. We have all changed so much. I love these missionaries They each have a story of sacrifice and I know the Lord is mindful of each one of them. The next two years will continue to be full of sacrifice for all of us, but from sacrifice comes sanctification, and, of course, blessings. I know that I am on the verge of so many blessings!
I am becoming increasingly familiar with the gospel contradiction that as soon as you give you get more back. I know this is true because of the Savior. I love him. I have grown so much here, but I get the feeling that the best is yet to come!
