Thank you KOREA for loving me!

Can you believe this is my last email? My next Pday my family will be on a plane on their way to come and get me! Ah this is so unreal! 

I will miss this friend of mine.

This face though.

My heart is full of gratitude to my Heavenly Father for sending me to Korea to serve a full-time mission. I can't express how much these 18 months have meant to me. I will be forever grateful for all that I have experienced and learned. I know that this time was so precious and will influence my life forever. Here are just a few things that I have come to know on my mission and my testimony as my mission comes to an end.

I have come so close to my Savior, Jesus Christ and really come to understand His Atonement. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and knows exactly what I am going through. I should never feel alone because He is always right beside me. I know that the Atonement leaves no scars. We can all be perfectly clean again through His Atonement.. Because we aren't perfect and we make mistakes and fall down but The Savior will be right there to lift us up and carry us. 

The most beautiful dessert buffet.

couldn't eat this cute face. 

I can't explain how grateful I am for all the areas that I was called to serve in. I will always remember the amazing members, investigators and companions that I met and served with in those areas. These people here have changed my life and I know that each of them was placed in my path for a specific reason. The members in each of my wards or branch that I served in were my family away from family. They treated me like their own daughter and took really good care of me. The members in Korea are so special to me and I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and be able to do the Lord's work with them.

I thank my Mission Presidents, missionaries and my companions that I had the opportunity to meet and serve with. These people changed my life and helped me through the hardest of times. I can't explain how grateful I am for these friendships I made during this time.

I don't have much time and It's really hard to put 18 months into words. But I am so grateful for my decision to serve a mission. I can't picture my life without taking this time to forget myself and give all I had to serve the Lord. I have witnessed some amazing miracles and I know that it was none of my doing. I will always remember this time. Thank you all so much for your constant love and support as I served my mission. I can't believe by the next P-day I will be reunited with my family.

So much love for President & Sister Madsen.... Bitter sweet day for me.

The most beautiful ladies I know.

To anyone thinking about serving a mission.. GO! Don't ever doubt your decision to serve a mission. I honestly can't picture myself without this experience. I love you all and will see you soon!! LOVE YOU!
