That doesn't mean that it's easy. There's a lot you feel like you are leaving behind, and the unknown is always a challenge. But it is always, always, always worth it.
My mission has been the hardest thing I've ever done. Every day has brought a new and higher hurdle. I never expected what would come, and I will never be the same. I am not the same person that I was when I left, because that person wasn't me. I now know what the gospel can be. I know what happiness is. I understand the gospel and the plan of salvation. I have experienced the Atonement of Christ and felt to "sing the song of redeeming love." I have come to know the Lord and come to realize that He knows me.
I do not want to leave my mission, but I know that now is my time to go on to something better. I can't imagine it right now, but I know that it's there.
I know that this is the Lord's work. I know that He is at the head. I know that the Church has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that we have a prophet today. I know that God has a plan for us and that if we obey Him we will receive all that He hath. But I know most of all that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He lives. I know that and I testify of it in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
