The end of my 18 month mission... but not the end of my service!

Hi Fam!! 

Holy Moly. What a week... or half week I should say! Here is a little run-down of what has been going on! On Monday we got to tour the Air Force Base in Bellevue! Then later that night we had Family Home evening with the Brown family and a couple of other members! It was so great! On Tuesday it was Halloween! We were able to go finding in the freezing cold :) and talk to everyone that we saw! Finding is always the best! Later that day we were able to teach this super cute Portuguese family- Sister Meneses came with us and it was the best! Then on Wednesday it was transfer day! All of the departing missionaries spent the day at the mission home and we kinda just "hung out"- it was the weirdest thing in my life. We were able to go to the temple that evening which was just incredible!! Then that night we had a testimony meeting. Oh my heavens. The spirit was so strong it was literally insane! On Thursday we went to the airport at about 7:30am and we flew home! It was an emotional roller coaster to say the least- none of us knew how we should have felt!   

I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to serve a mission! I am so grateful for the people I was able to meet, and witness the changes that they made and also the changes that have been wrought through me as well!! I know that my mission is the foundation of my life, and that it was truly the "MTC" for my life as well! My mission is irreplaceable to me, and I am eternally grateful for the chance that I had to serve as a representative of Christ, and now for the opportunity to serve my family and to help them return to my Father in Heaven! I know that our Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us and that he loves us more than we know. I know that this is Christ's church restored upon the earth and that it is truly led by Apostles and Prophets, and that Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone. I know that missionary work is the greatest work that we could ever do in our lives, and I am so excited to continue to help his work progress in different ways!  

I would absolutely LOVE to keep in contact with everyone whether you are on a mission or not! So my email is kelsey.rook16 

Thank you for all the support y'all have given me! I don't know what I would have done without you!! I love y'all to pieces!! Have the best week possible!!!
