Wow my last letter. That just blows my mind. I can't believe it. I wish it wasn't real.
To be honest, I'm going to be super duper sad to leave, not only Argentina, but the mission. I've enjoyed every single second here (even the hard ones). I've seen many people change their lives and accept the gospel. I've seen people choose to follow Christ and be baptized, I've seen inactive members who thought there wasn't another chance for them become active, accept a calling, prepare for the temple, and have their children baptized. I love relating my mission to the mission of the Sons of Mosiah found in Alma 26, where they are teaching the Lamanites. I'm sure my mission isn't near as hard as theirs, but this chapter has always helped me when I felt like I couldn't do it anymore. I've thought if the best missionaries in the BOM had troubles, were rejected and wanted to turn back then I can do it. (Alma 26:27).
I know I'm not a perfect missionary but I've done all I can in being the best. With the Lord and his never ending atonement, I was able to perfect myself in him. I found a quote once, I don't remember, but it was something like we can never fail if we are on the Lords side and it's so true. (Alma 26:12)
I remember before my mission I didn't even know what the gospel was. I remember trying to explain it to someone and was so dorky ummm we believe in God, and Jesus, and the Holy Ghost, but they're all different beings. Just nada que ver. Haha I was super nervous and didn't even know about the whole restoration. I knew about Joseph Smith and that he saw God and Jesus, but I would never have been able to explain it back in that moment. I never was one to be super strong in the gospel, and read my scriptures everyday, study, pray, fast. It rarely crossed my mind, but being out here in the mission I have learned soo much of who I am and who I want to be. I've learnt the doctrine and the importance of this gospel that I didn't even know or understand before. I love this gospel, I love how this gospel has changed me, and changed the lives of the people here in Argentina.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me and helped me keep on going. I'm so grateful for my mission here in the patagonia and more than nothing I'm so grateful for this gospel. Like I say the mission never changed me, but the gospel has. I love it.
Anyway, sieguen en el evangelio porque es el único camino para llegar a la vida eterna. Les quiero mucho. Se que dios vive y que es nuestro padre celestial. Se que Jesucristo es nuestra salvador que expió por nosotros. Amo el evangelio, amo mi salvador. Amo mi misión y lo que aprendí acá.
I love ya,
Hermana Miller didn't send any pictures this week so I got these from the blog that her mission presidents wife does. These are from her last leadership council.
