The Last Letter

October 17th

I am lost for words and i don't even know how i can or ever will be able to express my gratitude for being able to represent our Savior Jesus Christ here in New Mexico.

New Mexico truly  is sacred ground. I have been able to witness miracles just as the sons of Mosiah, I have gone through trials and hardships I thought I could never get through, but thanks to Jesus Christ all was made possible.

As i look back on my mission i see my trials and the hard things i had to go through and i can't help but  "to sing the song of redeeming love" The growth that i have made is exponential! I know that the Lord has more in store for me, and that this was a growing process for me to more fully pursuit the potential that God has for me! 

The people that i have been able to meet and get to know, that love for them is eternal. Every member, convert and non member, my love for them is far beyond any that i have felt before!
I can not thank everyone enough for changing my life! I know that there are people here who i have already met. I know that I was able to find those who i promised long ago that i would bring the restored gospel to. And that joy of being able to do so far exceeds any that i have felt before!

My love for my Savior Jesus Christ, is indescribable. I am beyond grateful that Christ gave up Godhood for manhood - for ME. That " He {was} despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:" FOR ME, FOR YOU! 
His sacrifice was the greatest form of love, and i hope with every fiber of my being that this small sacrifice i made for him has been able to show my love for him!

Everything that He has done for me, Making Eternal life possible, the ability to live with my family forever, so return back home with my father in heaven, that he Atoned for me so that i could be clean when i inevitably will mess up, my mission is the LEAST i could do for Him! And i will continue to do EVERYTHING for him!

I love you all and can't thank each one of you enough for your love and support, I hope and pray that each of us can and will be more committed to the Lord and come to find what true happiness is!

Letter #77

October 11th

A letter from Kaylee and her mom:

"Kaylee indicated in a response to my email that she really did not feel like writing an email this week. I had asked how she was feeling about coming home.

I have taken a few excerpts from the little she did email to us and thought I would go ahead and email it to everyone so you wouldn't wonder where her letter is
but also to let you know how she is doing. She is a little worried about the transition back to normal life and what that will entail. She did indicate that it had been
a good week. She will be emailing us one last time on Monday before arriving home on Wednesday!!!

We appreciate everyone's prayers in behalf of Kaylee and the support she has received from so many of you and we know your support and prayers is what helped
her finish out her mission! Please continue to keep her in your prayers after she gets home as she makes the transition back to everyday life!  Thank You!!!!!"

Marilyn (Kaylee's Mom)

"So I really just don't feel like writing a weekly e mail....man

ugh,,, I feel like I'm excited to come home, I feel worn out, but I love the people here so much I feel like it will be worse than leaving home, the talk Elder Holland gave that talks about after having heavenly experiences we at some point have to come back to earth...and I don't want to miss this, I love living like this!!!

This week is gonna be hard, but I am gonna work hard!"

Letter #76

October 5th

Man oh man! This week has been just 100% amazing!!!

Monday- temple !!!!
This is Sister Acton, we are soul sisters!

Tuesday and Wednesday we worked like lions trying to find people to teach. Nothing yet but I know that the lord will bless us!!! :)

Thursday we had a lesson with Kelsey and she is amazing, she is someone the Elders were teaching and shes on date for baptism for Nov. 5th! Keep her in your prayers!!! :)

Friday was Zone Conference and that is always so empowering and uplifting! It is amazing to see the Lords work continuing to go forth!


Oh how I love conference, it is so bitter sweet... everything seemed to sink so much deeper, and I will never be able to express my love and gratitude for my mission. It has been the hardest thing I
have EVER done! And it has brought me more joy than I ever thought possible!!! 

To end the night off so great and amazing.....

Oh man, oh man ohhhhh man!!!!! I can not express my love for these boys! They have 100% changed my life and I am so happy that they are in my life! WE had SOOOO much fun!!! It was amazing to see them!!!

This week has been good, and I have loved seeing the Lord work his mighty work! I know that good things are to come, and I know he KNOWS how to prepare us!

I love you all!!!!
