Famous Last Words...

Hey There Everybody, So I decided to kill two birds with one stone this week. The Mission asked me since I'll be going home in a week to leave the mission with a short testimony. Of All I can say about the last two years I felt these words sum it all up.

In The Words of Elder Holland, "God Loves Us, He Is Good. He Is Our Father... And He expects Us To Pray And Trust And Be Believing. And Not Give Up And Not Panic And Not Retreat And Not Jump Ship When Something Doesn't Seem To Be Going Just Right. We Stay In, We Keep Working, We Keep Believing, Keep Trusting... Following That Same Path. And We Will Live To Fall In His Arms, Feel His Embrace, And Hear Him Say... I Told Ya It'd Be Okay, I Told Ya It'd Be Alright."

These Things I Have, Through Experiences,Come To Know For Myself. They Are True.The Lord Has Been Patient With Me Over These Past Two Years. He Has Encouraged Me. He Has Strengthened Me. He Has Helped Me Change. He Has Given Me Hope, He Has Allowed Me To Find Joy In All Circumstances Imaginable. His Love Is Real. To Those reading This Who May Be Having A Hard Time, Take The Testimony of His Apostle and Know That Everything Will Be Alright, The Lords Got Your Back. Keep Trusting In Him, Keep Doing Your Best And You Will Come To Know Him Better. I Have Loved Serving Along Side The Savior. He Has Been A Faithful Companion. I Love Him, I Have Come To Know Him Better.

I Love You. Always Have Always Will. See You In A Weeks Time.

Love, Elder Page

Times of transition...

Hello Hello,
I want to go ahead and say Happy 4th of July!!!! We are having an awesome P-Day. The ward had a pancake breakfast here at the church this morning and so that was a scrumptious way to kick off the holiday. Email has been good, and today we have plans to do some fun things, so I cant complain. This past week was a really good one. I have really felt that I am preparing myself, or at least trying to prepare myself to continue doing the things I have done on a mission even after I go home. There are a lot of things I have done and learned to do on this mission that honestly I will probably only have the chance to do while I'm a missionary, but this week I have really felt that we took part in things that I will have the opportunity to do the rest of my life and things that bring me a lot of joy. We have done things like, help members of the ward move, we have offered more service, planned and unplanned for the place we have been going for the past month or so, we have had the chance to give needed blessing to people, and ultimately help those we've been around feel the spirit and feel the Love we have for them and that god has for them.

These things are things that I know my entire life will help me fulfill my calling as a priesthood holder, bring me closer to the lord, and help me build lasting relationships with people. I am grateful and happy to have learned how important and meaningful some of these things can really be, while I've served here in Long Beach. I Love being a missionary and doing the things only missionaries can get away with doing, but the things I will be able to take home with me will be the things that I will continue to do for others and for the Lord.

That's about it for this week, I Love You All. And I cant wait to give more detailed stories of the mission when I return home. Until next week, Godspeed!!!

Love, Elder Page
