Well, folks, this is probably my last blog post as a full-time missionary. It's been an absolute dream come true. I can't even begin to tell you how much my mission has meant to me in terms of my personal growth, me coming to understand the Atonement of Christ as the source of every good change and blessing in my life, and being able to see God work in the lives of my brothers and sisters.
I hope this blog has been able to help y'all feel closer to God and His Son, and has been a source of support or insight or a way for the Spirit of God to teach you something. I plan on continuing to post every so often, although I might change the name/theme of the blog again. We'll see what happens.
Anyway, just wanted to let y'all know what will be going down in the next little while. My call to serve in California may be ending soon, but the call to be a disciple of Christ never will; His invitation to be "fishers of men" doesn't come and go with a black badge. I love my Savior. I know He lives. I know the Book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith was the prophet through whom God restored the Church of Jesus Christ in the last days before His Son's Second Coming. God bless you all!
All my love,
Elder Christian David Spendlove
