Ups and Downs - Letter from President Babin

I'm really running out of time here, so I'll have to keep this way short, I'm sorry guys!

This week had a lot of ups and downs, like any week, but there seem to be a lot more of them as I get closer to the end of my mission. I have moments where it'll just hit me for a little bit and I won't really feel like I can do anything, but then the next minute I'll be ready to just go outside and teach everybody I see! It's pretty weird how fast it happens, but thankfully, there are a lot more moments from the second group than from the first. :) I really feel like this last transfer is and is going to be the best of my mission. My goal for these last few weeks is to really be on the right track in everything that I do so that when I come home I'll be able to just keep moving with the upward direction that I have right now. It's really such a blessing to be where I am, with the people I'm with, and to be able to feel myself growing. A lot of the time on our mission, we grow, but we don't really notice it. But through the prayer and study and just hard (often sweaty, it's getting really hot) work, I notice changes is myself more often and see that I'm really doing my part to build the momentum I need to make that transition between the mission and normal life. I'm really looking forward to these three weeks as the best three weeks of my mission.

We'll be getting iPads tomorrow, as well as teaching Milan again, the woman who just had a baby! It's gonna be a good week, for sure.

Thanks so much for the great emails you guys always send! I don't really thank you much for it, but it really is special to get so much from back home. A lot of missionaries don't get nearly as much. I'm sorry that my email this week doesn't correspond to what you guys sent to me. I'll make sure it's better next week! Thanks so much for all that you do. I love you guys so much, talk to you soon!

demonstrated an extraordinary attitude, testimony, and spirit, and developed
