|Elder Miles with Harrison Littledyke (his trainer) -|
Harrison is working in Virginia this summer
It was another good week full of exchanges and meetings. I am not sure what else to say about it... Nothing too exciting happened on exchanges, its pretty fun to help some of the younger missionaries. We had the last mission leadership council of our missions. That will be the last meeting with President Riggs until transfer meeting on the 25th. I'm sure that meeting will be crazy because it will be the last mission conference before the Riggs leave.
I receive a text message from Zohra this week. We are going to meet her for lunch at some point this week. It will be good to see her before I go. I hope I can see a few other recent converts as well before I leave. Zohra said she is doing pretty well right now. She is going to school and doing some work as a translator on the side. She also just bought a brand new car.

"super trunkys" - flight and departure info
Part of our "Super Trunkys" is a letter from President Riggs encouraging us to write down our testimonies, conversion stories, goals for the future, etc. It is really hard to describe in words how much my mission has blessed my life. I am going to try to start writing some of those things down over the next couple of weeks.
When I think about coming home I have a lot of mixed emotions. I am excited to see everyone and get back to doing a lot of things that I love. I also get a nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach when I realize that I don't have much time left. It is about the same feeling that I had before leaving on my mission. It will be hard to leave a place and people I have come to love. I have heard missionaries say that going home is like leaving home for the second time. I find that very true. It will be strange going home because I feel like I have just been a missionary my whole life and this is how it will be forever. When Elder Johnson and I talk about it we feel like there is no way we are going home in a couple weeks.
