DEEP BREATH. April 11, 2016 Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico

Oh. my. gosh. 
I'm traumatized. 
Just kidding, I've only cried twice. 
In two days (more like 3 because I'm going to get home super late) I will be stepping off the plane and walking into the arms of the people brave enough to go to the airport at 11pm. I will most likely laugh nervously and wonder if hugging my dad is allowed. 

I can't believe that 18 months have already come and gone. I remember the day that my parents dropped me off at the MTC. I hugged them quick, let my eyes get watery, straightened my shoulders, and said, "Wellgottagobye!" I was led into the building were I put on my nametag for the very first time. And from then on, I have been known as "Hermana Murset." 

I NEVER thought that I would love the people of Mexico so much. I never thought that I would feel so much joy, and so much sadness. I never thought that I would see my weaknesses so clearly. I never thought that I could care so much. 
And I definitely never thought that I would be able to learn Spanish. πŸ˜

Being a representative of Christ is something that I will never forget. 

I know that God exists. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. That only through His name are we able to step into the kingdom of God. I love Them, and in this short space of time, I have learned to love Them even more. They have always been by my side, and They have always told me (even though I had a hard time believing it) that I am good enough.

I know that this is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know that The Book of Mormon is true. I am going to be able to be with my family forever, thanks to our Savior.

Thank you for all the emails, the letters, the love, and the support that you have given me during my mission. I will forever be grateful. 

Goodbye, Mexico. I love ya tons.

Oh yeah, and pictures. πŸ˜„
1. Basilio got baptized! Agapita, his wife, was also going to get baptized, but she has a mental illness and got freaked out when she started getting in the water. But she promised her husband, in the name of "The Virgin Guadalupe" that she will do it another day. 

2. A Kodak moment.
