It's really here..

So this is my last e-mail. I really didn't think it would be this depressing. I've been staring at the screen for a while now and not quite sure what to write. Some of you I'll be seeing in a couple days. It's a really different feeling that I can't really put into words.

Anyways, lots of really fun and excitingness happened over the weekend. I got a call last Monday from the Sisters serving in my last ward and they gave me some really exciting news! Charlie had just received the Melchizedek Priesthood and would be baptizing AND confirming Ella that Saturday! I was super excited. For those who haven't heard about Charlie, he truly is one of my favorite converts from my mission (well.. their all my favorite but Charlie especially). Seeing him baptize and confirm his daughter was truly one of most special moments on my mission.

I didn't have the chance to talk with them after because we had another baptism to run off to. Who's? Sam's of course:) Oh, guess what..

SAM GOT BAPTIZED! I forgot to mention that part. I'll say it again for good measure. SAM GOT BAPTIZED!   It was really amazing to see the change in him before and after. Love it!

Sorry I don't have much to say right now. I actually have a lot that I don't really know how to put it all in words but I'll give it a try. Just thinking about how much has happened over the past 18 months is weird. Still trying to comprehend that it's only been that long or that short of a time. Really hard to do. The things I've learned will leave me forever changes. Mostly, the surety that I've come to know that the Savior knows us and our trials. I got an e-mail from Sister Metcalf and she wrote something that really impacted me:
 
"It depends on the hands"

 A Basketball in my hands is worth about $20.99, a basketball in the hands of Lebron James is worth 19 million per year.  It depends on whose hands its in.
A tennis racket in my hands is worth about $17.99.,a tennis racket in the hands of Serena Williams is worth about 20 million per year.  It depends on whose hands its in.
A baseball in my hands is worth about $3.00, a base baseball in the hands of Derek Jeter is worth about 35 million per year.  It depends on whose hands its in.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands would make a few fish sandwiches.  Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in the Saviors hands will feed 5000 people until they are full, and still leave 12 baskets left over.  It depends on whose hands they are in.
Some nails in my hands are worth about 5 cents.  Some nails in the Saviors hands will provide Eternal Salvation for each person who has ever lived on this Earth, and all of Heavenly Fathers' children.
It depends on whose hands they're in.  When we put our lives in the hands of the Savior we can achieve infinitely more than we ever could on our won.  It depends on whose Hands they're in.

Such an inspiring concept. I love it and it's so true. Just turn everything over to the Savior and it'll work out.

Love you all and I'll talk to you later!

The church is true! The book is blue! And Moroni's on the ball!
