Mission life is AMAZING!!!

This is my most recent handwritten letter from Elder Cody Randall! It is to the family, and I am his mom! I couldn't be more proud of him!!
For those of you who followed the blog early on, I apologize for not keeping things "up-to-date". I always had intentions, but it didn't happen:(

Letter dated September 2, 2013

Hey Family!

Sorry I haven't written in such a long time. Busy, busy, busy, but no excuse! How's everyone? How's life back at home? Everybody is back in school? Man that is crazy to think that D's in college and B's in high school! They're getting old, which means so am I!

GHANA IS AMAZING! I love it here! It will be weird coming home, cuz I mean, I feel like I am home. My mission has seriously flown by and it's crazy. I can't believe I'm approaching my last few months. It feels like I just got here. As of now, I'm not ready to go home yet, so I'm working really hard to make my time count!

Thank you guys for everything! Your love and support ... I don't know what I'd do without you guys! When I sit and think about my mission and the experiences I've had, thoughts flow, but I can't focus on just one. They jump from one to another, but when we start talking about it, it's weird how well I remember it all. I know I am always asked about a new spiritual experience, but when I think, I just can't find one cuz my whole day is a spiritual experience! So much I learn, so much I gain!  The spirit I let guide me. I just let it flow.

Anyway, we're teaching a lot of really sweet investigators right now! Yesterday we received 4 referrals at church and 3 came, and 1 we went and visited. Powerful!😃 Well guys, I  love you all and thank you for everything. I am forever grateful for all of you! The Church is true, I promise! There's only one thing we must do in this life and that's obey God and follow His commandments so we can go to Heaven!

I love you all! Hugs and kisses! MUAH!

❤️Elder Cody Randall
