Subject: Time to leave

Dear Family,
Well... this feels weird. I have very mixed emotions about going home. ''This is like going to Disney World on the day your dog died'' said Elder Jacobsen. The reality started to hit me yesterday and a lot more today. And once I get home Ill start to miss it even more. Ive made so many friends here. the members and investigators and the missionaries. Its been a wild ride.

I just want to thank you all once again for your prayers and support. You dont understand how much youve helped me these past two years. I honestly wouldve have been home a long time ago if it wasnt for all of you. Im kinda short on words right now. Im sad to leave, but excited to go home. Im nervous and at the same time excited about the future. I just still cant believe its over. Ive learned so much and made changes out here that I never thought were possible.

Now to answer some of your questions. Im kinda nervous about eating a lot when I get home, cuz Im probably going to get sick. But I would really love some cinnamon rolls haha. And just a normal Sunday dinner. whatever you guys want to eat (apart from rice) is fine with me.

Well I cant think of anything else to say haha. I love you guys and will see you soon.

Love, Elder Michael David Wilson

E-MAIL FROM EMILY FOX

* This is an e-mail we received from a girl in our home ward. The world sure seems small when things like this happen.

hi wilson family! as you probably know, coincidentally, i am in the same town as michael! i came here to do volunteer work with a micro finance org. i am staying at the house of one of his investigators. i have seen the missionaries a lot, as i´ve gone to ward activities, i had lunch with them and the investigator family, i also joined them in a lesson for the investigator family. he is a great teacher, and such a good obedient missionary! i just wanted to tell you and send you some pictures i took of him, in the act of being a missionary. :) i guess you´ll see him soon enough as he comes home shortly! anyways, i hope you are all doing well.
lots of love, emily fox

COUNTDOWN

FAVORITE SCRIPTURE

2nd Nephi 15: 26-30
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth; and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly; none shall be weary nor stumble among them.

27 None shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken;

28 Whose arrows shall be sharp, and all their bows bent, and their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind, their roaring like a lion.

29 They shall roar like young lions; yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry away safe, and none shall deliver.

30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea; and if they look unto the land, behold, darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof
