June 20 in Orizaba, last post ever?

I'll get home on Wednesday sooo.... yeah this is probably the last. 

E and H are progressing fantastically. They're super excited for his baptism in July. R is still doing well. 

News on E: We finally saw him! long story short, he couldn't contact us for a while, but then we saw him this week. He's doing fantastic. All is well for him right now. I admire him and his faith.

I'm super grateful for the opportunity that I've had to serve a mission. It has been undoubtably the best desicion of my life. I know that we are spirit children of loving Heavenly Parents. I know that we are here on this earth in order to progress, and be able to one day become like them. I know that Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of the world, and that through faith on His name, all people everywhere may be saved, through the grace of His infinite atonement. I know that this is His church today, that because of His love for us He has called apostols and prophets in order to guide us in these latter-days. Most important, I know that everything that God does here for his children is because He loves us. And the most important demonstration of that love is that "God so loved the world, that He sent His Only-Begotten Son... for God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through Him, might be saved." Therefore it is up to us to take the desicion to "come unto Christ, and be made perfect in Him... that ye become holy, without spot." That is what I've been working towards here these past two years, both in myself, and among the Mexican people. There really is no greater work. I would know. I've done it. It was totally worth sacrificing these 2 years. It really wasn't a sacrifice. It was the biggest blessing I've ever recieved in my life, and I'll be eternally grateful. 

Until next week, 

Elder Thompson
