The Last Letter

Hey Everybody,

  So this week has gone by all to fast and filled with emotions from one end to the other, i have been filled with so much love for the people here and just saying goodbye broke my heart. I didn't want to leave them, this is one of the hardest experiences in life leaving people you love, people you have served and possibly people you will never see again.  I know it is hard to leave the people, the companions, the Elders and the mission, but the memories and experiences will always be with me and i know that one day we will all be together again. 

   I know that this church is true, there is no other truth than to know that we are sons and daughters of Heavenly Father and that he will always, always, be there for us and show his love, I have been so blessed through out my whole mission, in know that this gospel is true and if we LIVE it, LOVE it and ENDURE to the end, we WILL be HAPPY. For this day i am truly happy, for this moment i am filled with joy, for this time i am grateful, for this opportunidad i am blessed, for the next day and forever i know that there is happiness.  Thank you for all that have written me i am truly grateful, you have been boulders for me in my mission, someone that i could lean on and trust and accept your counsel, thank you. I love you all and hope to see you soon, well i come home tomorrow so real soon. Thank you. 

Love with all my heart,

Hermana Newmeyer

Only one letter from Hermana Newmeyer this week, She arrives home Wednesday evening.

Everything is going by too fast, i can't really explain the sensation that i have right now. Although i believe that my flight will be shorter than 20 hours. more like 3, i wont have time to cry. I love you very much and i am thrilled, excited and eager to see each and everyone of you soon. Hopefully i will be able to write a bit more later, for right now everything is just amazing. We are eating with the president tomorrow and then Wednesday I come home. i love you, i see you soon.

If you had one more week.........

Hey Everybody,

    Oh this week was amazing, we walked a whole bunch and we were able to contact a whole bunch and our district helped us and we were able to receive a good amount of referencias from them. I am so thrilled we have some new investigators and one really is a surprise for us, we passed by her and she literally said i only have 10 minutes and so we sat down and talked with her for ten minutes and we asked her if she would be baptized if she knew that it was true, and she said yes! so that was the first lesson, the second lesson she said that she wanted to go to church and know more, so we are pretty excited to teach her. 

    I love the mission work, there really is no greater satisfaction then to preach the gospel and tell people that Heavenly Father exists and He loves us. It is so beautiful! I am truly grateful that i have been able to work the whole time of my mission, the Lord has blessed me with health and with good companions that i could grow personally and that we could help our investigators grow as well, I am happy, content, and ready to continue to work, If I only had one more week....... I would work, love every minute of it and help others understand more of Jesus Christ. I love you all thank you for your letters and encouragement, thank you. 

Love you all,

Hermana Newmeyer

Hey Everybody,

  This week was great, we walked a lot and i do believe that we are out of shape. I was huffing and puffing when we walked up one hill to visit with our investigators its was wonderful. Anyway, we had a baptism in our ward this Sunday in the area of the elders, it was beautiful, the young man decided Saturday evening to be baptized and they put together the whole baptism so that he could be baptized the morning of Sunday and then confirmed a couple of hours later, it was an amazing experience. 

    We have also contacted quite a few people that are interested to hear more about the gospel. We also lost quite a few people and they are just not ready to accept the gospel but the missionaries that are coming will have about 5 families ready to be baptized. Anyway, So many things to do, so little time, and definitely don't know what else to write. I know that God loves us and that he wants the best for his children, whether its waiting for another 5 years to be baptized or in the moment like Paul with the Eunich in the very hour that he explained the scripture they went down in the water and was baptized. 

   I love that with all of the knowledge in the world today with degrees and masters saying how much we understand the gospel or the life of Christ, no one can help you understand the meaning of pure testimony than the Holy Ghost and experience. The sweet assurance and just knowing that its true burns within us and helps us to understand just a little bit more. I am happy to say that I know it to be true, I love you all have a good week!

Love,

Hermana Newmeyer
