Well, the day has come. I've been here set apart as a missionary for over a year-and-a-half, and this is my final email.

I've learned a lot about our Savior. I've learned a lot about His Father's plan. I've learned a lot about how to love, how to serve, how to repent, and how to endure. I've learned a new language. I learned about the restoration of the Gospel. I learned that God truly does love every single one of us. 

In the mission, I've never run out of things to do. There have always been people to find. There are always people to teach. I've never run out of scriptures to study. I've always had characteristics and attributes of mine that I've needed to improve. There has always been something that I've needed to counsel with the Lord. Truly, looking back, I realize that spiritually, I've never run out of anything in the mission. The only thing that I will run out of is time. 

I will miss being a full-time missionary and hope for the best for all of the people that I have served and those that have served me. Family and friends from the United States: I will see you soon! Thank you for loving and supporting me and praying for me. Family and friends from Chile: My hope is that one day, we will all be together again. 

So, I will give all that I can this last week, trying to bring souls unto Christ, because He is the only way. I've loved the adventures I've had here in Chile. I love the good people here. I will never forget them. I will try to give it all that I've got. But I know that in the end, I'll really give nothing compared to what He gives to me. He is the Ultimate Giver. I also realize that if not even one other soul was brought unto Christ for my efforts here, at least I know that mine was.

Hola Hermana Tracy, soy Hermana García, compañera de Hermana Martín. Estoy muy agradecida con Hermana Martin y no solo con ella sino que con ustedes sus padres también. He aprendido mucho de ella, tiene cualidades y atributos semejantes a los de Cristo que me han ayudado a perseverar, y adquirir esos atributos en mi vida también. Agradezco que ella haya extendido, y siempre le digo a ella que se quedo por mi, porque me ha ayudado mucho, en mis primeras semanas en la misión, me ha fortalecido y brindado animos para poder seguir adelante en la obra del Señor.  Ella es una gran misionera, ahora que ella regresa a su casa, bendiciones extraordinarias les esperan a ella y a ustedes como su familia. Sé que Nuestro Padre Celestial les ha bendecido a ustedes con unas hijas maravillosas y muy espirituales. Estoy muy agradecida con ella y con ustedes también, aunque no les conozco pero se que son unos grandes padres, porque en hermana Martin se reflejan los esfuerzos que ustedes han hecho por criarlas en el evangelio.
