Today will probably be the last letter that I write home because next week is transfer week and interviews with President. I don't have a lot to say to everyone today, which kind of goes along with what I'm going to talk about. After almost two years of living, breathing, teaching, and learning the gospel, I realize just how blessed I am to have been called a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My life will never be the same, and I don't want it to be. I'm different, I'm a changed man, I actually feel like I understand the gospel now (even though I have a long way to go). The gospel is such a deep concept. There is so much to learn and so much to study and so much to apply. I have learned deep doctrine of the plan of salvation and I understand a whole lot more of what the Atonement means to me. I know a lot more about the depth of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. But when all is said and done, I realize just how simple the gospel is. The Lord has blessed me with the ability to teach it simpler and clearer. The more the Spirit teaches me of the deep mysteries of the Kingdom of God, the easier it becomes to teach those mysteries to someone that doesn't even know that God exists. Teaching and testifying in a simplified version gives us power. I've seen it again and again with President Cifuentes. He teaches with simplicity and the Spirit moves us.
So I guess to finish my last and short letter home, I want to bear my simple testimony:
I know that we have a Heavenly Father that loves us and so He sent His Son to show us the way back home. He blessed us with a Church so that we can become worthy to enter His presence again. I know that Joseph Smith restored His Church to the earth through angels. We hold the Book of Mormon today as proof of this restoration. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and it testifies of our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our Savior and He died for us so that we can live with Him and our Father again. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
I love you and I'm excited to see you all again!
Love, Elder Bosco II
