I'm finally a Missionary!

Today was an awesome day for me! I was able to have my second farewell :)
I had it in the Sunset 1st ward, in St George, Utah which is the ward Ive been in for the last year.
I really love all of the people in my ward here and have been so thankful for them in my life.
I only had 13 minutes to give my talk, but I was able to bear Testimony of my Heavenly Father and his love for us so I am happy.
I was also set apart tonight by my Stake President. Lon Henderson. He's a really great man and I love him alot. It was a very spirtual experience and I knew that I was really being set apart as a Missionary for the lord. I know that this is Christ's work. I know that he'll be with me as I labor in the mission field.
Im going to give it my whole heart and soul!
I report on Wednesday! I cant believe it's finally here! I am so excited and am so thankful for the oppurtunity I have to serve!
God is my Heavenly Father. He really is! And his Son Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves me so much. I know that he helps me when Im not strong and comforts me when Im down. I know that this is his work and that Joseph Smith is a Prophet and that through him, Christ restored his church on the earth for us today! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His church. I know that its true. And I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that by reading it I've come closer to my Savior.
I love all of you. Please keep me in your prayers!
Please pray that I can learn Spanish!
And I really know that I am a Missioanry now. I feel different. I feel great!

  1. So proud of you. I know you will be an outstanding missionary. I am so looking forward to following you on this journey.

  2. Jon,
    So proud of you and your testimony. I remember once hearing you at church give your testimony after you went to efy. I think it was the same one that they made you go cut your hair before you could walk in. Hahah(chad)! Any who, it was so inspiring then and I know you are a great example to so many!

  3. I am so proud of you my buttons are popping. I am glad your on the Lord's side. My prayers are always with you. Love grandma jeanette
