Is he ready?
Is he ready for his experience to be over? To come home to his crazy family? To answer a lot of questions like this one?
Ready or not.
Here is a portion of his
LAST LETTER HOME: (BIG smile as I wrote that)
I don't know what to say. I think I told Elder Clarke best last night when I said I feel like I am in the spirit world simply waiting for the next life. I feel good. I feel blessed. But best of all I feel like I have accomplished what the Lord has asked of me in these 2 years... I am excited for what is to come, but very sad for what is being left behind.
...Yes, I am sad to leave the mission, mostly sad that my time as a full-time representative of Jesus Christ is done. No more badge, no more visits and teaching the blessings of the restored Gospel all day. BUT, much can continue. I am especially grateful for the missionary spirit that i have discovered fully, the power and direction it is to be set apart and carry that missionary mantle has helped me progress to where I am. And I love my Savior Jesus Christ, who died for me so that I could live forever in eternal joy with those people most important to me.
I love you family and I am excited to see you and hug you. For now, I will enjoy my last few days as a missionary in the best place ever! MISION PANAMA: SIEMPRE FUERTES!!!
On THIS end, WE.ARE.READY!
