"I am back to living at my old apartment in Fairbanks...(in town for Zone Conference) and I have been out visiting all my friends I made up here. It has been simply wonderful to see and talk with them again and feel all their love, and gives me the opportunity to reflect on what I've been able to do in my year of missionary service. The people have so kindly assured me (quite unsolicited) of the difference I have made in their lives, and it can be seen in their smiles, it is the sweetest experience. Being back up here has also given me extra opportunity to reflect on all I have learned and how I have grown since leaving Fairbanks last November. We grow minute by minute, and if we don't take these moments to look back, we often miss our greatest growths and accomplishments.
In short, I am grateful to be counted a missionary."
A typical day in the life of a missionary.
"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet
of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good,
that publisheth salvation..."Isaiah 52:7
