I guess it’s time!! I will do a little review of how this week has been first. It’s been a good week. It’s been a crazy one, that’s for sure!
We went to the temple with my group, and it was just so good. Incredible. And then we went and got some souvenirs. And then we went to President’s house where they cooked us a full blown American dinner, cheese hamburgers, and they were SO good! We have had last interviews, bore our last testimonies at zone conference, and it’s just closing time.
My new replacement has come in, Elder Parra from Utah. He is a homie and going to be a great pensionista. I am just teaching him the ropes till I leave!
I dropped Elder Brown off at the airport, that was crazy! We came to Chile together and he is now home! It was bittersweet, really weird, but also really good! Man. It is all just kind of blowing my mind that I am leaving!
We have zone conferences every day until Saturday and yeah, Monday we all just chill in the office and wait till our flight!
It’s been a time of a lot of reflection, a lot of meditating. And I feel really good about everything.
It’s just been a very, very good time. I am just blessed. Super blessed to have served this mission. To have met these people, to have served them and given them my all. I feel at peace and just with gratitude. My heart is full of joy and pain at the same time, kind of the weirdest feelings ever.
I just can’t believe its ending! I am soo grateful for this. I really want to bear my testimony over so many things, but I literally cannot put into words all that I have learned and experienced here for the past 2 years. Also, I just feel so mixed, haha, 13 year-old girl Elder Carney, it’s like an emotional rollercoaster!
Well I just love these people, it kind of pains me to think about saying goodbye to a lot of them, because I truly have loved them. I AM SO BLESSED and grateful, that’s all I can say. And grateful for Jesus Christ especially.
WELL FAMILY, SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!! *so weird to say!
This is Elder Carney, for his last time, signing out. PEACE.
This is his group who are all leaving to go home this week, and his Mission Pres. & wife, Pres. & Sis. Gwilliams
