It's comin down to it and I'm feeling it. Like I've said, I'm not nervous. It's a form of excitement I would like to call... anxiety. Yup. That's what it is.

Today, I gave my "farewell" address. So many people showed up, I was afraid of where the ward was going to sit. Overall, the talk went great. Seeing that my dad is a bishop, he had me speak in his ward last week, so I got a heads up practice talk for this sunday. I guess his kids can be guest speakers... I should've seen it coming - Taylor did it. Afterwards, everyone came to our open house. That was a great time. I got the opportunity to see many of the people I haven't seen in years. It was a very close, happy experience that really touched my heart. To think I said I didn't have many friends. When they fill a chapel... it makes you wonder...

The Lord has given me such a great talent of befriending everyone I meet. I love that I don't know a stranger. In the mission field, I hope this trait helps me through my teaching and meeting investigators. I love the Lord, his gospel and his teachings.

P.S. I enter Wednesday...
