Kumusta sa inyong lahat!
Wow, this will be my last time to email as a full time missionary here in the Baguio Philippines Mission. The time has gone by so fast, it seems like just yesterday I was in the MTC, and now, I'm reaching the final days of my mission. It has truly been a wonderful journey and I've learned more in these past months than I would have ever expected. No one really tells you what serving a mission will be like, and honestly, it's hard to put into words, but I know that this is the best decision that I've made, to come out and serve the Lord. I've learned to love and to serve others more than I ever could have imagined, and I know that I will remember these people that I've met and the experiences that I've had for a lifetime. I know this church is true, and that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God, and through him, we have the restored gospel of Jesus Christ here on the Earth, and it will never be lost again. I know that missionary work is essential, and the Lord is truly hastening HIs work in our days. Every member is a missionary, and my service will never end. It's going to be a sad day when people no longer call me Sister Bangerter and I have to retire my nametag. I love my mission so much, and I can't wait to tell ya'll everything that I've been doing for the past year and a half, and how it has changed my life.
