Week 76

I am coming down on 2 weeks until I am home and next Monday I will be in a "preparing for home" class so I thought I would take the time today to share my testimony about my mission.

Words cannot describe the love I have for the last 18 months of my life. It was a time of testing, a time of prayer, a time of laughing, a time of walking, a time of loving. It was my time to come to know my Savior more and to help to bring Gods children back to Him. It was a complete pleasure serving Him.
"My brothers, behold I say unto you. How great reason have we to rejoice for could we have supposed when we started from the land of Zarahemla (ARIZONA) that God would have granted us such great blessings?
Yeah, I know I am nothing, as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself but I will boast of my God, for in His strength I have been able to do all things yeah behold many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land for which we will praise His name forever."  Alma 26:1 and 12
I never imagined when I left Sky Harbor Airport the 15th of December of 2015 that I would be so incredibly blessed. That I would have seen so many miracles. That I would be so so happy. 
I want you all to know that I was incredibly imperfect as a missionary but that I served with all my heart and I will continue serving Him all my life.
This gospel is true. I have seen it bless so many lives and know that it can bless all of us if we let it. I know families can be together forever. That phrase has helped me through the hardest times of my life. I want to thank you all for your love and support during my mission. I can't tell you how much it meant to me when I got letters and emails from you. 
I will see you all way too soon
Til then,
Hermana Alexandra Kay Beardall
