Last Blog from Costa Rica

Well family, friends, and acquaintances... here we are. Its been a long time coming and I have to be honest when I say that I am not quite sure how I feel. Its kind of a bag of mixed emotions. I almost don't know what to say. Actually that is a lie. I don't know what to say. 
I feel like my world has been turned upside down. I feel like I cant quite understand whats going on.
When I was in the MTC one of our teachers told us something that I am starting to understand. He said that "You cant slow down time, but at the end of your mission you are going to want nothing more than to try." As this last week starts I am praying now more than ever that time will go by slowly. 
I could say a million and one things and they would all be cliche because every missionary that is finishing says the same thing. So I wont say anything. 
All I am going to say is that I will miss this country and these people more than you can imagine. The love that I have for these people is something I don't know how to describe and that until one feels it will never be able to understand. 
As my time here comes to a close I have started to reflect back on the person that I was when I started the mission and the person that I have grown to become. I think that I am a better person. I guess we will find out. haha
I know this church is true. I know the God lives. I know he loves me. I am positive that one day I will be standing by his side in the Celestial Kingdom. I have a testimony that can not be shaken of the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet of God. I love the Book of Mormon. I love this gospel. I am glad to know that if I work hard I will be able to be with my family forever. This gospel is a blessing and a gospel of happiness. It is the best way to be happy in this world that has gone crazy.Pray, read your scriptures, and do the little things.
I love you all, and I will see you soon. 
Con amor
