A mission is a strange experience
It is a trial and a test.
A mission throws at you the worst
Yet, teaches you the best.
I've never been so happy,
I've never been so depressed.
I've never felt so forsaken,
I've never felt so blessed.
I've never been so confused,
Things have never been so clear.
I've never felt my Heavenly Father so distant,
He's never been so near.
I've never been so discouraged,
I've never been so full of hope.
I feel I could go on for forever,
I think I've come to the end of my rope.
I've never had it quite so easy,
I've never had it quite so tough.
Things have never been so smooth,
Things have never been so rough.
I've never traveled through more valleys,
I've never ascended more peaks.
I've never met so many nice people.
I've never met so many freaks!
I've never had so many ups,
I've never had so many downs.
I've never worn so many smiles,
I've never had so many frowns.
I've never been so lonely,
I've never had so many friends.
BOY, I hope this is over soon,
GOSH, I hope this never ends.
Menseng Mwahu! I got on to my email this morning and this is the email I had received from my Dad! This explains exactly how a mission goes! I am beyond grateful for this opportunity that i have had to be able to serve a mission in the Micronesia Guam Mission! Had someone told me my senior year that I would serve a mission I would have laughed and said never! I know that Heavenly Father has perfect timing and a perfect plan for each and everyone of us! I have seen his hand in his work! I love this work! I love my Pohnpeian Family! I never thought i could grow to love someone so much that I knew for such a short amount of time! I have seen so many miracles and so many blessings come from this work! I have learned that the key to loving people is to serve them! I am so grateful for each and everyone of you! I am grateful for the many prayers, letters and packages that i have received! I will be having my home coming talk this at the Pella Ward @ for those who would like to come and attend! I am so grateful for all of you and all of your love and support! Have a great week! See you soon!
