The End is Here!

Hello! Well the end of my mission is here. I will be flying back to Canada tomorrow to join my family. I have been serving here in the Tennessee Nashville Mission for the past 21 months. It has been such a wonderful and memory filled experience. I have been able to watch many people grow and come unto the Savior Jesus Christ. I am so thankful for this opportunity most importantly which I have had to learn and grow. I have experienced medical challenge after medical challenge. I have pushed forward as best as I could. I have given my life to Christ in His work. The end of a mission though is not the end of doing His work. There is much more to be done in such little time. I will be a member missionary serving God. I plan on going with the missionaries that are around where I live to keep the excitement of missionary work and to help others come unto the Gospel. Being a part of the cause of missionary work will bring salvation to mankind. I will also be involved in another vital work. This is temple work. Where baptisms for those who have passed and had not received the Gospel are done as well as other ordinances. Salvation shall be offered to ALL! Including those who are dead. That is part of this great plan that has been set forth from before the creation of the world. I want to thank all of those who have helped me as I have served our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Because of many people supporting us missionaries, we are able to continue helping and serving others and bringing the saving ordinances to mankind.

I will continue writing on this blog as it has helped me in my life to learn and grow as well as many others. It has brought me such great joy in tough times. I hope that others will be able to learn and grow from this website. If you have any questions please feel free to email me, comment or whatever you need to.

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE!

So it has been a long while since I have taken the time to write a blog. I missed my Thanksgiving blog but am in time of Christmas. I am so thankful for the opportunity which we have to remember the life of our Savior Jesus Christ. As we drive around everyday so often we see signs that say, "Jesus is the reason for the season." This is so true. It helps me to remember why we have Christmas. It is not focused upon presents.

I love Christmas. I love being able to spend time with my family and reflect upon past years and just to have a good time. This is my second Christmas away from my family. It will be my second Christmas here in Tennessee. Maybe it will even be a white Christmas. HAHA! I may continue to have my Christmas's here in the South. They definitely are not as cold as Alberta Canada where I am from. This past week we had 70F weather. It was so nice. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. It is also usually the busiest time of the year to unfortunately.

As we go through this Christmas season I pray that we remember the reason for all of the excitement. I pray that we may remember those who are fighting so we can enjoy this Christmas in peace. Thanks to all the men and women of our military, law enforcement, fire personnel and their families who are working on helping and protecting us.
