The time has come. I can still remember my first email to you guys and now this is my final email to all of you as a missionary. I can't believe that my mission is almost over.
It's a really fun to think that I'm going home, seeing you guys after 2 years and going back to my normal life but of course it's also sad to think about it. I will miss these things waking up at 6:30 in the morning, having a personal study from 8-9am, language study from 10-11am, lunch at 11 and begin to work at 12to9pm with dinner at 6pm, finding people to teach on the street, walking under the heat of the sun and blistering cold winter, testifying a lot about the gospel and wearing this nametag almost every single day. I can say more stuffs but their are ton. I'm really really grateful that I'm here in Korea as a missionary, as a representative of Jesus Christ, as a servant, as a helper. I want to share some scripture verses that I loved a lot during my mission. It's in 2 NEPHI 4:18-21: I remember
I learned these verses when I was in my 1st transfer here. I had a lot of hard time like learning Korean, missionary work and others but I knew that the Lord never ever left me in the times of trials and challenges, like Nephi and his family in the wilderness, I felt more the Savior's love for us. It has been an amazing experience! Missionary work is hard but it's worth it. I want to share a talk from Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: MISSIONARY WORK AND THE ATONEMENT:
I know that through the atonement of Jesus Christ, everyone can feel his love and can be happy in their life. It is important to think always how the Savior saved us than to think that he leaves us in the times of trials. I have a testimony about the atonement. Through the atonement of Christ, I can come to mission, I can repent and become converted to his gospel. I testify that the atonement is true. My mission has been the best experience ever in my life. I really really felt the power of atonement in my mission. I'm really really happy for this opportunity. I love my mission. I love my mission. I love my mission. I will always remember it. I will cherish the moments that I had in this 2 years. I have come to know more the Savior. I know HE LIVES! I know that this gospel is true. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, who called him to help to restore this glorious and wonderful gospel.
For Dad and Mom, thank you so much for the support that you gave to me. Thank you for the sacrifice that you did for my mission. I know that you did everything for my mission. Mom, Dad, I love you with all of the sincerity of my heart. I missed you all so much. Kath, Kim, thank you for the prayers and for your love to me. I'm happy to see you all again on Friday. I'm really really excited. This is Elder Kenneth Edward Bacarro of Korea Seoul Mission, serving from Aug. 25, 2010 to the 14th of September 2012. I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
