I'm Ba-ack!!!

My nearest & dearest, 

Guess who's back... Back again! Well I'm home and despite the freezing temperatures, I'm glad to be here! Seeing my family in the Philippines and being able to share with them a taste of what I've been doing for the last 18 months was amazing and something I will never forget. 

Since I've been home I have had many opportunities to reflect on my mission and the impact it has had on my life. I can honestly say that the last 18 months have effected every single aspect of my life. I can't imagine where I would be or what I would be doing if I hadn't served my mission. 

My mission and all of my experiences have filled a hole in my heart that I didn't know I had. It has helped me see past myself and open up to a whole new culture. 

I am so thankful for your support these last 18 months. I know I couldn't have done it without you!!

I am excited to report on my mission in sacrament meeting this Sunday February 22. I hope to see you all there!! 

With nothing but love,

My family and I spent six days visiting the different areas of my mission and the families I worked with there. Below are just a few pictures of the hundreds that were taken but you can get a feel for the country and the people that I love and miss so much.
First hug!
