I don't know what to say really. Here I have been the last couple of hours, trying to write my last email and I am filled with a heap of emotions, unable to find words. I've always had the thought of this day planted somewhere in the back of my head. I often wondered what my final thoughts would be and how I would be able to put it all together. But the truth is I can't. I realize now everything that I have felt, experienced, and learned out here, are that which cannot be properly described as well as understood through merely words on a screen, pen and paper, or even face to face.
My mission means the world to me. Im not going to lie, it hasn't been all sunshine and roses, but time and time again I saw blessings showered over me as I stayed faithful and gave my best. I felt the love and comfort of God and Jesus Christ as I pressed on through hard times. I developed a relationship with my Father in Heaven in a way that I never could have, had I not come out here and stayed.
My dearest friends and family, I know that we are children of a living and loving God. I truly believe that every single person on His earth has a role to play, for bigger or for smaller in fulfilling the perfect plan of our Father in Heaven. There is no human being that can fall too far from the outstretched hand of the Savior. It is not possible. I know it is our duty to love, and as we strive to become more like Christ we will better know what it actually means to love. We are not perfect, nor will we reach perfection in this life and that's fully okay. As long as we are striving to become better people everyday.
To my missionaries that I will be leaving that still have time
out here, I love you. I really do. I have built friendships with some of you that I know will exceed far after the mission is over and I'm so grateful for the special time we shared out here together. JUST DO YOU. Keep shining! Stay true to yourself and the Lord! That's all that is important. We will see you soon on the other side.
And to my support system who I left for a while that I will be seeing soon, especially my Mom and Pops. I couldn't have made it without you. My heart is full of gratefulness. I have missed you all dearly and I look so forward to our reunion on Friday. I love you.
For the last time,
Elder Noah William Miller
