The Best Way to End

The parents are on the way here as I type this, so they'll probably hear what I'm going to say in person instead of reading the email. I'm so glad I get another week here in Chile, I feel like there's always more unifished business to take care of. 

This last week was awesome - we tried to be as diligent as possible, since I have another week to say goodbye, buy souveniers, etc. I didn't have to worry about those things. We had a beautiful baptismal service for Ariel and Erica (the couple that was married the week before). They're so great - they've basically been like members for a long time. I'm so glad I was able to contribute and help out with that. 

I'm surprisingly calm - with a little nervousness in my stomach but I'm not as sad as I thought I would be. I think it just hasn't hit me yet that I'm really ending my mission. I guess it's because I know my mission never really ends. Like my President reminded me in my last interview - the Lord will always have other missions for us to fulfill in our life. I'm so excited to go to the temple, keep working in the church, keep studying and learning, and keep being a missionary as long as I live. 

I love my Savior and His Gospel and I'm so grateful for this time. I will never be able to express all that I feel right now, but I just want you all to know that I know the things I've been teaching for a year and a half are true, and I know that it's the way to true happiness. 

Thanks for all the love and support -

Con amor eterno -

Hermana Aubrey Glazier
