Concerning my 18-month mission, I can honestly and sincerely say, like Paul, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Wow, what a journey this has been! I have learned, grown, matured, and have been shaped, molded, and refined. My testimony has solidified more than I ever thought possible. I have helped at least one soul, if not many (all over the world!), come closer to the Savior Jesus Christ. I have witnessed miracle after miracle. I have seen God’s hand in my life and in theirs. This is a great and marvelous work! I am truly honored to have been a part of it for such a short and precious time. Duly called and set apart as a missionary of the Church, I have had authority to preach the principles of the gospel, and have been set apart to represent the Lord Jesus Christ. I have devoted all my time, talents, and attention to serving the Lord. How GREAT is my calling!
This full-time mission is only the beginning. It is part of life’s greater mission- an eternal mission. It not only includes my mortal life, but my spiritual life, when I will continue to preach the gospel. I will continue to pray fervently, search the scriptures, serve others, and give my all to my Heavenly Father. I will press forward, and stand steadfast and immovable for the rest of this mortal life, until I kneel at the Master’s feet and stand at the right hand of the Father.
There is a time and a season for all things... my time has come. My 18 months is up. I will miss Temple Square so much. But the work will carry on. The truth of God will go forth- boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.
Three important words....... "IT'S ALL TRUE"
Love you. See you soon.
The one. The only. Sister Rochelle Frogget.PS: We had 2 VIP tours this week!!! It was nerve-wracking but fun! Especially because we had Elder and Sister Hinckley escort us!!!! They are AMAZING!! :) He's just like his father. I love it. We saw him today after having a testimony meeting with our class in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. We were all sad to say goodbye to President and Sister Holmes and to each other. Elder Hinckley greeted us and then said, "Stop crying, you'll get over it!" lol!
