*laughs* *cries* *hyperventilates* *eats cake*

"how are you handling your final two weeks in the mission field?" ^^^^^^^^
I basically have almost ran out of worlds at this point, I feel like alot of the things I could say or stories I could tell would seem a little superficial and wouldnt describe well my feelings about these past few weeks. I have been trying to focus all of my thoughts and all of my studies on Jesus Christ, So I wanted to share a few things I took away from it!
John 6:66-69
66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

Some of my fears about coming home is my fear of losing this testimony, this spirit, of not "walking more with christ" of "going back" to the old me. But when I studied this part, I remembered that my testimony is rooted in Christ. I know that HE has the words of eternal life! Duh that I will not "go away" because I KNOW that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
These are things that I KNOW because I have FELT them. I am not very good at expressing my testimony over the internet, but I can promise that we have a savior, redeemer, that he knows us, loves us, he knows my name and my struggles, and that especially as we are preparing to celebrate this easter, his ressurrection, I know that he grants EVERYONE a second chance, a new beginning, and that he is the prince of peace. (go watch the video on "prince of peace").

I love my mission! It is an experience that, if I had it my way, everyone would have :)

Love, Sister Lipps
