I wanted to just say thank you to everyone who came to my farewell. I always joke about how I don’t have any friends but I know that the truth is that I have a ton of amazing friends who support me and an amazing family who is always there for me. This was obvious to me when I was on the stand waiting to give my talk. Everywhere I looked I saw someone who had come just to hear me talk. You guys are all amazing and I wouldn’t be taking this step in my life without you. You have helped not only me but my entire family countless times and we can’t thank you enough!
I will always have a current mailing address up on this blog so you can all write me! I promise to write back, maybe not right away but eventually. I know Brazil will be incredible and am glad that I get to go right to the Missionary Training Center in Sao Paulo. I love you and will miss you all!
I’ll see you in 18 months!
