My Mission was the best- Charlie's last post from Georgia, 29 August 2016

Well Hey all y'all, 
Well I just want to say that my mission has just been the best. I am so grateful for the chance I was able to come here. It has helped me a lot. I don't know what I would have done if I never would have extended for 15 months from the Salt Lake City South Mission. This gospel is amazing! I was listening to a talk by John Bytheway. It's called the best 3 hrs. It is so amazing! It talks about how this Church Loves its teenagers. Knowing that a teenager said a prayer and brought this church back together. So cool!! 
Sister Walker came up with something amazing. Missionaries are Spiritual EMT! We are helping everyone out as we can. Some are asking for help and others aren't. But that doesn't mean we can stop helping them. We are all missionaries; even without the name tag. All the prophets have said Every member is a mission. I know that is true. I will be a missionary when I get home. I can't wait for that to happen. I know that there are those who need us, They need that light we have to help them through out their life. 
I know that we are put in a place at the right time. I know I was called to serve a mission at the right time. I know that things can be really hard in the mission field but Heavenly Father has always said, " I never said it will be easy but I said it will be worth it." For all those Future missionaries out there it is worth it to serve. 

So just to say this week has been really fun of emotions. I just can't believe I am emailing my last letter as a Full time Called Missionary. This week has been great. One of the members who feed me bought me a cake because that was my last meal with her.  It was so nice. 
Also yesterday Sister Walker and I got the chance to sing in Church. The really cool thing was in the beginning of my mission. So in Salt Lake City.. I was able to sign with my Companion Sister Bangerter and now near my end of my mission I got the chance to Sing with My Companion. So cool! 
This week we notice we were really low on food. #End of the month/ going to food storage. 
So just to say we were stopping by a house around 6. Still not having dinner yet. Just to say the member fed us food. Tender moment. It was the best. 
Also just to say Yesterday a member gave a food for lunch and another member gave us food after we had dinner with them. Just to say we have food now!! Heavenly Father does watch over his Missionaries!! 

I am excited for seeing my family but I am really sad to leave the people here who have touched  me in Georgia. I am so grateful for them and all what they have taught me. 
I glad that things have worked out and I have learned wonderful things in my life. 
Also sad news this week. We got told on Friday that our district leader got moved to the Tifton District and that Albany is a district now. I thought so; there is 6 of us here. But it was sad to lose a set of Elders. 
So I will let y'all know what we are doing today! A member wants to feed all the missionaries and just to say we are also going fishing!! I can't wait. It is going to be a lot of fun. Also this week we are going to be like missionaries and work hard to the end. I know that as missionaries focus on the work and really work hard to the end the mission is going to really change you so much. 
Just to day I have really had a wonderful day so far. We where able to help someone answer her questions about what she is Reading in the Book of Mormon. It has been wonderful helping her out. 

I sure do hope that everyone has a wonderful week. Always know that if you have hard days, all you need to do is to Pray. He will always be there for you. He is waiting there for us to ask Him for Help.
I Sure do hope all y'all have a wonderful Week! 
Sorry that I don't have any new pictures. But Know that I pray for y'all every day. 

I want to let all y'all know that I know that Jesus Christ Suffered for all of our mistakes in our life. That he is our Savior.  I truly know that Heavenly Father is always there. I have felt him so much in my life. I am so grateful for Christ for all he has done for me in my life. 
I know that families are together for ever. That I will see my dad again; knowing that death is not an end. That I will be able to see my loved one again. 
I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it several times and find things that I learn every time. It is so amazing to know how the scriptures can truly help you in your life. I know that great things will come our way as long as we try our best. Heavenly Father and our Savior are always there. I know that Joseph Smith's prayer was answered and that he brought the True Church back to the earth. I know that he was a prophet of God. I know that we have a prophet that leads and guides us in these days. I know that I was called by a prophet of god to the Georgia Macon Mission. I am so grateful for that. 
I love this gospel so much. It has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am grateful that families are so important in this church. I don't know what I would do with out my family. They mean so much to me. 

I love y'all!! See all y'all soon!! 

“There is neither man or woman in this Church who is not on a mission. That mission will last as long as they live, and it is to do good, to promote righteousness, to teach the principles of truth, and to prevail upon themselves and everybody around them to live those principles that they may obtain eternal life”  - President Brigham Young 
“There will always be a spiritual light that beckons to us, giving us the hope of rescue and relief.”—Elder L. Whitney Clayton
“May we ever be a light on the hill, an example in keeping the commandments, which have never changed and will never change.” Elder L. Tom Perry
