June 4, 2017 - Final Letter

Well everyone this will be my last email to you all as a collective group while I am on my mission and as Elder Webb. I have served a wonderful 100 weeks and I will finish off with about 101 weeks. 
My time here has been amazing. I had no clue what was in store for me about 2 years ago but now looking back it just seems so crazy! I am so so so happy that I served a mission and it really has been the best 2 years of my life (so far) Before my mission all I would do is go to school, hang out, play video games and I thought that that was the life right there. But now that I have been here and I have met some of the most amazing people, felt such an amazing spirit I have realized that God has blessed me so much. I always thought before my mission before I came out was that I wanted to make sure I could come home and say that it was the best 2 years of my life. And now I can proudly say that it really was. Its actually pretty simple all you have to do is be humble, teachable, obedient and hardworking then you will be amazed at what the Lord will do for you. I also experienced some of the hardest times of my life here, but because of those experiences I am who I am now. I have come to know that Gods plan is so amazing. His plan is SO simple but also SO deep. The gospel is amazing really it is on how much you can learn. It never ends. I have seen this gospel change peoples lives right before my eyes. They go from lost to fulfilled, sad to happy. I have laughed harder then I have ever laughed, been happier than ever, I just have been filled up so much. I pray and hope that I will can continue to help others feel the joy. So I am so happy that I have done this and I thank each and everyone who has supported and helped me through this. Especially my parents who have sacrificed a lot for me to be here and also all those who sent motivating letters, emails, care packages, I am very very grateful! Recently I have been thinking a lot about the priesthood and eternal families. How blessed are we to be in the church that holds the true power of God? The power to bind in heaven and in earth. I have been thankful to use this as the main topic of my contacts this week, asking people "Brother or Sister, do you believe that after you die that you will still be married to your husband or wife? Do you believe that you will still be the mother and father of your children?" All of them responded in a way for us to testify that Gods plan is meant for us to be with our families forever, God gave us our families and He wants us to be with them forever. A big joke phrase in the Philippines is "WALANG FOREVER" (meaning there is no forever) But we always love to tell people there IS a forever and we can help you get there. I Have seen a lot of miracles happen in our area with finding new people and also helping those we have found to come unto christ. This upcoming saturday Nathaniel will be baptized! So we have an upcoming baptism and we are so happy for Nathaniel. Then the following week we will also have a potenial baptism if they pass their interview for my favorite investigators Jack and Anna Manalang:)))) So no question that the Lord has blessed so much. I am so grateful for his personal love for each and everyone one of us. 

So I love you all I hope that you have enjoyed my lame letters, I have enjoyed writing them, have a good week. See you all soon:)
