Taiwan, Taichung mission: LAST letter

​Dear family and friends, 

     Hello everyone ! It was Typhoon week! Yesterday the church was cancelled due to the typhoon day. It wasn't as bad as we thought it would be though. Sister Bell and I stayed in till a little after noon to call some phones and sing hmyns to members and our investigators. Still a spiritual day despite not having church service.         

   Well, as much as I am unwilling to admit that my 18 months of mission has come to an end, I know that it is time for me to go home and apply what I've learnt in life. I will not take this 18 months in vain.
Coming out here I was having this great thought thinking I am going to do great works to help the Lord to save his children and pay back to the Lord for the blessings that He's given me in life. But it is really like what Elder Ballard said in his book: The eternal truth is , you can never do as much as the Lord can do for you. I was so humbling by all the things that I've learnt on my mission especially learn how to trust the Lord more and let His will to be my will. The Lord has given me much more than I gave to his children. I know my own worth as well as others through my service to them. This simple truth: God lives and He loves me enough to sent His son to die for me so that I can return to Him is not just simply a religious statement but something that I know for myself is true. No one can take this testimony away from me. 

     I would like to invite you one last time as a missionary, a representative of Christ, to come unto Him. Regardless if you are a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint or not, we can all come closer to him a little more each day by "having faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of The Holy Ghost and Endure to the End. " I promised that as we act upon this principles each day, we will feel God's love and peace, we will have strength to face our trials each day. I testify this to be true in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. 

With love, 
Sister Ting
