"If This Was Any Other Religion, We Would Have a Pew With Your Name On It." [Adios, Montrose!]

The title of this email goes out to the Montrose Stake President, President Taylor. That is a DIRECT QUOTE to me! Hahaha!!! He gave the missionaries of the San Juan branch a tribute during our Branch Council meeting yesterday and specifically expressed his deepest gratitude for my seven and a half months of service here. It was hilarious, and also very touching!

Best, Most Awkward District Ever!

Well, as I'm sure you can tell, I'M GETTING TRANSFERRED! I am soooo nervous and excited and just a million other emotions about this but I know that the Lord has prepared my heart to leave. I have absolutely LOVED serving here and I feel like I'm leaving a part of myself here with these people. I absolutely LOVE the San Juan Branch to pieces and can't imagine having never met/served these people. Montrose has been a place of growing and humbling for me and has TRULY changed my life. Thank you to all that have served me and allowed me to serve them. I know the Lord has truly blessed us with so many miracles and I can't even begin to imagine my life without this gospel.

I don't have much time today, but here is a quick miracle/tender moment from this week!

On Wednesday we got to meet with our investigators Alma (mom), Alma (12) and Emily (9), which was a MIRACLE! They are SOOO sweet and are progressing SO quickly! We got to teach them about the Plan of Salvation and they expressed that they want SO badly to live in the Celestial Kingdom as a family. It was so amazing to hear their STRONG desires to come unto the fold of Christ. They want to learn. They want to change. And they want to have an eternal family. They read the BOM together as a family every day and the younger Alma even asked if she could do the "Additional Study" in the back of the pamphlets. This family truly is such a miracle and has blessed my life so much. When we told them that both Sister Gogue and I will be leaving they began to cry and express that they didn't want us to leave because they loved talking with us and learning and that they feel so comfortable with us. We assured them that it would be the same with the new Hermanas. It was just so touching to see how much they already emit the light of Christ. I can't wait to hear what happens with these beautiful daughters of God, especially as they prepare to enter the waters of baptism.

Tomorrow is transfer day and that is when I will figure out where I am going! I am so excited to start a new chapter of my mission, but it is also very hard to say goodbye to the people of Montrose. I love the members here so much and it has been an honor to serve them.

But, such is the life of a missionary! I love a new opportunity to grow and I love this gospel!

Sending TONS of love from the western slopes of Colorado!
