The LAST Letter! :(

Hello Everybody!

Well even though I still don't believe it, the time has just about come. I can't believe that the mission ends and I will be home in 5 days. It seems unreal and I feel like it still hasn't hitten me yet. I am SO excited to come home and see the family but am sad to leave this all behind. It really has been the best 2 years.

This week was really good! Unfortunately Martha's baptism fell through because they had probelms with some of their documents and we had to postpone their marriage. But we had lots of lessons, new investigators, and baptismal dates which was awesome. This week if all goes well on Tuesday we should have Ana's and Jose Luis wedding and Ana's baptism, and on Thursday, our last day of work we should have Martha and Mario's wedding and Martha's baptism. We are hoping to finish strong. :)

Our last Sunday was good, our ward is sad we are leaving. Tomorrow they are dedicating our ward activity to our goodbye, and we will probably combine it with Ana's baptism. We had 8 investigators in church on Sunday which was great as well.

So we only have 3 work days left then on Friday we go to Aragon and then we all go to a really cool museum in Chapultepec (one of the few nice parts of Mexico City), we will have our interviews with president, our farewell dinner by Sister Anaya, testimony meeting, then early Saturday they will take us to the airport. So it is surely going to be an eventful week, we are excited. :) 

This mission has done SO much for me. It is hard to describe how I feel about it but my feeling about it are mainly happiness, love, and gratitude. My testimony has grown so much here and I now have the confidence in the Lord that I'm sure I will need to live the rest of my life. It is definitely bittersweet to finish the misson but I know that bigger and more important things are still to come. 

Thanks for all your support, emails, letters, love, and prayers over the last 2 years. That is what has gotten me through at times. I am SO grateful that I have you all as my family and friends, I couldn't ask for more. 

Well I love you all SO much and I hope to see you all Saturday at 2:26 in the airport! 

With all my love,

Elder Elgan
