Mission Accomplished

Dear Everyone,

    It is so weird not to be an elder anymore. I hardly know what to do. I tried to fill my last week full of missionary stuff, yet things fell through a couple of times. That's alright though. The thing I feel I learned on my mission was that the Gift of the Holy Ghost truly is an incredible honor given us by our Heavenly Father. We should do everything we can to be worthy of that gift and strive to represent Jesus Christ in all that we do. I know that this is Christ's church. I know that He lives and that He loves each and every one of us, not because of something we did or did not do, but because that is who He is. He is the master healer, the careful shepherd of a diverse flock. His Father is our Father. They know us individually and know and want us to have those things that will bring true happiness. They love us so much that they provided a plan for us to return to live with them. This plan required a pure and holy sacrifice and Jesus Christ accepted. His love for us and His Father carried Him through pain that we can not even begin to comprehend. Just so we might be able to have the faith necessary unto salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. The Gospel is so rich with blessings just waiting for us to be obedient to the voice of the Lord.

    I know that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the light. There is no other name given under heaven whereby men can be saved. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and I know that He is watching us and places people in our lives to help us, that we might feel His love through them. I know that families are meant to be eternal. There truly is no success that can compensate for failure in the home. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and as an instrument in God's hands, the Gospel of Jesus Christ was brought back in its pure form. I know that we have a Prophet on the Earth today, even Thomas S. Monson. I know that he leads and guides this church by revelation. I know these things and share them in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

With Love,

Andrew Roberts
