Wow! I can’t believe it’s almost here. Life has been crazy. So much change has been happening; a very bittersweet change. Its going to be hard for me to leave such good things. Vancouver has been the area I have grown up my whole life. I will greatly miss the people I’ve known for so long and the things I’ve done. It is now time for me to do new hard things. I know that my family will be blessed while I serve the Lord and the people in Missouri and Illinois. Being away for 2 years is only a small portion of eternity, let alone to allow other families to be with their families for eternity because of my service; the sacrifice is small compared to the blessings other will receive.
