Dear Elders and Sisters,

This will be my last letter to you. I want each of you to know how much we love you and have been blessed for having served with you here in the greatest mission in the Church. We have loved every minute and will always remember the great experiences we have shared together. As we leave I want to share my testimony of the reality of a loving Heavenly Father, the divinity of his Son Jesus Christ and the truthfulness of the restoration of the Gospel. Like you, I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ.

I have learned many things from you. You are a very special group of spirits, save for these latter-days and foreordained to usher in the second coming of the Savior. Your lives will be forever blessed by your service here in the mission. That one single decision to serve a mission will have a more profound effect on your eternal destiny than any other decision save who you will marry. Make sure you serve well, for the time can never be recovered.

Give up your personal interests for these two years and yield your hear to God. Do things His way and not your way. Own your obedience and never be distracted by other missionaries. Be proud of being a Preach My Gospel missionary. Exercise the faith to baptize every week. Work in concert with your local priesthood leaders and build up the Kingdom of God. Be happy and love the work. Only then will you find true joy and happiness on your mission.

I will read your letters this week before we leave. We know you will support and sustain the new mission presidents as you have us.We leave you with our love, our prayers, our faith and blessing as you serve the remainder of your mission. Serve the rest of your mission so that when we see each other again you can look me in the eye and tell me you served with all your heart.

We love you,

President and Sister Winn
