Well, my dear friends and family I love you all so much. This is the last group email I will be writing you all as a missionary. I feel so so weird!

I testify and I know that this Church is true, I knew it before my mission, but now even more now as a missionary. I am so thankful for the time that I have had to preach the gospel as a missionary and I am so thankful for the time that I have had to meet such beautiful people that have changed my life. I love the mission and it has changed my life. I am so so happy for the people that have accepted the truth in their lives and for their testimony's. My favorite part about being a missionary is when someone accepts the gospel, and they get baptized, and they accept the truth and bear testimony of the truth. I have had the opportunity to see that as a missionary. It is a such a tender mercy of the Lord.

I love this Gospel. I know it is the true Gospel in the earth. I will never forget the people that I have met. I know God lives. I know that he loves us so much, that he sent his son to die for us so that we can return to his presence. Our Savior willingly gave his life for us. NO one else could have done it. Only him. He is our loving Savior. I promise you all everything is possible with faith in him. I love you all!!!

My last week as a missionary, I promise to give it my all, and work with all of my heart. I love you all so so much!

Love from Peru,

Elder McMillan was very short on time this week - he wanted me to send his love to everyone.  He is happy and enjoying his time in Casma.  He will leave from Peru in two weeks!  As a family we are so thankful for your support, love and prayers. 

God bless all of you!

I am doing good. The mission sent me my itinerary this week which is weird and just makes me realize that it is more official. I love you all so much. I am trying to finish hard to the end. Me and my comp are good. We are working hard together. Last week we found 17 new investigators and this week we found 14! We were able to invite 4 more people to baptism, and we took 4 people to church!  It was awesome! I love you so much.

Well I am here in Casma, they say it is the city of eternal sun, but it isn't that hot right now because it is winter here haha!

My area is called Cumorah 1. It is a branch, and it is way little! Only like 40 to 60 members go each week, it is even smaller than Chao.  I love it though! The church is really small.

We have a mom and daughter that have baptismal dates for the 22nd of July. We are hoping to get them ready to be baptized.
I can't believe that I am in my last change, it feels really weird.

Tell everyone I love them.  I am doing so good! I am giving it my all so that I can have an experience like mason did and know I gave it my all! I love you all so much and hope everyone is doing good.
Love from Peru,

 Well some shocking news is that I am going to leave my area. President called me last night for the changes and thanked me for the time that I given as a zone leader and he said he had given me a new assignment as District leader. So I am going to an area called Casma, and I will finish there haha! It is hard to go to a new place for just  6 weeks but I know that the Lord has a reason for it. I just have to except it , even though the changes are hard because that means that I have to say goodbye to more people that I have learned to love and trust in. It is hard, but I know the Lord will help me. I just want to do what he wants. I just want to work hard this last change and give it my all. I now the Lord will bless me!!!

The BAPTISM HAPPENED AND I BAPTIZED HER!  It was so awesome and such a fun moment for me. I will never forget it. I love Alicia so much. She is awesome! I will miss her a lot.

We got to go the temple last week and it was so amazing! The Lord gave me answers that I needed. I felt so good and so relieved and happy. It was such an amazing experience. It gave me more strength. I am going to always visit the temple.

I love you so much. I am praying for you guys everyday. My new comp is going to be Elder Hernandez.  He is Latino, so i am going back to all Spanish haha!

I love you all so much!
