Well this is it! I can't believe that this moment has come. The time has flown by way too fast. So we had our baptism for F"Karen", unfortunately I wasn't able to attend because president had me off doing a special assignment in Casas Grandes. But I'm ok with that because I'm helping the mission with a big project that president is starting. So we are doing this thing with the Book of Mormon and I'm Mormon pass-along cards. We are presenting the BOM with 8 questions that are answered in the BOM. We had a 98% that they accepted and we got a refferal out of it. I was there with another Elder for 3 days and we recieved 120 refferals for the mission.
I am so happy that I went on my mission I have learned so much and I am greatful for all the experiences that my Heavenly Father gave me. I love this Church so much and I know that it is true. I love the Savior and for his sacrifice that he made for me and for all of us. I love the mission and I am super sad to be leaving the field. I know that the Book of Mormon is true!
Love, Elder Thorpe
