August 11, 2014- FINAL POST

 Hello family and friends! Sorry it's been a long time since I have written a letter. We have been super busy lately on pdays having fun in Tokyo 😆. Life is great here in Kamagaya. This week was good! Well last week we went to a big firework show with our English class and it rocked. Then this week we went at 4am with some members to a giant swamp/lake and watch the lotus flowers open and had a picnic. It was sooo pretty. On the drive out to the Lake we passed so many green rice fields and just so much pretty green nature. I love Japan! While we were driving I was just soaking up the pretty views of Japan and was reminiscing on my mission and I totally cried. I keep crying at random moments of the day. It's weird that I've put all my life into japan here and it really ends. Somedays it feels real that it will end but usually it feels like a normal day. We also went to the temple this week and that was the best. Love the temple. I got to see all the sisters for the last time. I ate lunch with a lot of my old companions. WOW! It's so weird! I have so many mixed emotions about finishing my
mission! I have learned so much though. I am so so happy I came out on my mission. All the blazing hot or freezing cold days housing (tracting), all the bike wrecks, all the rejection, all the hard companions, all the rain, was all worth it. Having my testimony strengthened, all the people I was able to help in small and big ways, all the eternal friendships I have made, have made it all worth it. I will forever be grateful for this time I was able to serve in Tokyo Japan. I love my mission! I am so sad it is ending but I am excited to apply the things I've learned in my life when I get home. I am also excited to see everyone! I will see you in three weeks! I love you all! Thanks for your love and
support 😊
We got caught in a typhoon last night. So fun!!
Dripping wet!

I got sick.
