My Final Epistle

Hey everyone.

In all honesty I never thought this day would come haha It always seemed like it was a long way away. But here it is. WOO! FINALLY! Just kidding. I am really sad to be leaving. but I am excited to see you all as well no worries. Well this week was a sad one but good at the same time. I was able to say goodbye to all the friends I made here and hopefully someday i will be able to return! This week we had 3 or 4 investigators at church so that was awesome. they are all really cool and I am sure that they will be baptized. 


I really am not sure what I am supposed to include in this letter. i have a lot of mixed feelings right now. But I am super grateful that I was able to return to India at all. That was definitely a miracle. I am sad to be leaving but I hope to be able to come back again someday. Sunday was pretty fun. I have been playing the piano for sacrament meeting for the past few weeks and its really bad but I have gotten a lot better at sight reading. but yesterday they didnt tell me there was an extra hymn we were going to sing and I wasnt paying attention when they announced it and a sister told me it was How Firm a Foundation so started playing that one and everyone was quiet and staring at me and then they told me that was the wrong hymn. So i got a little piano solo in before i gave a talk. super embarrassing but it was funny. Then I spoke about Hope. and how it can be an anchor to the souls of men and I talked about how it should anchor you to the iron rod and it was good. i hope. maybe 5 of the 70 people understood what i was saying hahaha no worries though. It was solid. 



Well I really wish that I could put everything that I have learned in the past 28 months into one letter but thats not physically possible. So I will just tell you what i now know. I know that God is our Father in Heaven. i know that He loves us more than we can comprehend. And that love is evidenced through His Son Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is our savior. I know that he suffered, was crucified, and rose the third day for all of us. I know that both He and our Father in Heaven have perfect immortal bodies. They both love us perfectly. I know that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet of God. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God and with him, I testify that the book of Mormon is most correct of any book on earth. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

  1. What a powerful testimony and a great way to end his mission.

    P.S. My son, Elder Andrew Wakefield, was just sent to replace Elder Checketts in Visag and my son has one week left on his mission also!
