its bittersweet writing to you all this last time as hermana porter. there’s a whole lot in my heart right now. my heart is bursting with love and gratitude — for this beautiful gospel that I know is true, the beautiful people of Santiago, the experiences that I have seen and been apart of these past 18 months and for my Savior for allowing me to serve Him, to wear His name on my chest and in my heart and for granting me the means to serve and love as He would and as He does.
reflecting on it all, my mind goes to 2 corinthians 9:15 ; ‘thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.’ of course the scripture references to Christ, but I can’t help but think of the unspeakable gift that my Heavenly Father has given me. that in spite of all my imperfections, and flaws, and weaknesses he has allowed me to stand in His place. to speak as He would speak. to love as He would love. maybe I have never seen Him physically, but I have felt Him and His guiding hands, and for me, that is enough.
He knows the way, because HE IS the way. If we allow Him to guide our paths, he will take us to beautiful places. trusting in Him and living His gospel is the way to peace and to a real, raw, tangible, lasting happiness
I love you all.
nos vemos en oakland babyyyyy
con mucho amor
