November 19th

Final Testimony:
I just finished reading the Book of Mormon for the 2nd time this year during personal study and spent the rest of the time reflecting on how incredibly grateful I am for the opportunity I've had to serve a mission.  It has been the hardest, most tiring, emotional-exhausting, uplifting, inspiring, amazing experience I've ever had.  It has been more rewarding than receiving a scholarship and more fulfilling than getting a PR in a 300 m hurdles race. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone in every way possible.  It has strengthened my testimony more than anything else ever has. I know that God is my Heavenly Father. I know that He knows my name and that He loves each and everyone of us more than we can imagine. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I have felt how His Atonement has enabled me to do things I did not think were possible and has comforted me when nothing else could  I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through Joseph Smith and that we have a prophet on the earth today who has authority from God and can receive revelation from him to bless the human race. I know that the Book of Mormon is another witness of the divinity of Jesus Christ. I have read it, I have prayed about it, and I have felt the Holy Spirit confirm that it is true. I have loved sharing the Gospel with the people in Australia and I look forward to sharing it in whatever way I can after my mission.

There is no place like home. Medford is my pot of gold!
