Sacramento - Week 71

Due to the new security measures requested by the Mission leaders, the names of all investigators and people that Sarah comes into contact with will be replaced with the name of a well-known character from a children’s movie. This will keep the identities of people safe as well as make it easier to keep everyone straight. The name given is in NO WAY intended to reflect the personality, looks, or circumstances of the individual(s).


COUNTDOWN: 2 DAYS

“This is the Testimony Last Which I Give of Him”
Hello everyone! 
I can't believe I'm being transferred home this week. How did that go by so fast?! There's been so much going on this week and so much I could say, but I've decided that I just want to take this opportunity to bear my testimony as a missionary, one last time. 
I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us individually. He wants the best for us and wants us to be happy. He gives us commandments so we can have that happiness. As we are obedient, we show Him that we love Him too, and we grow to become like Him. 
I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. His atonement is all powerful and amazing. He lives, and He loves us.  
I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The church of Jesus Christ has been restored and is here on the earth today. We have a living prophet. How blessed are we! 
I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. There is a power that will come into your life the moment you read it, and your life will change for the better. 
I love this gospel. I love my Heavenly Father, and I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that we can return to live with them again. 
Life is beautiful! Remember to keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart!
Love, 
Sister Burchett
