Final Letter From the Washington Spokane Mission!

Hi everyone!

Well, I guess this is my last letter from the Washington Spokane Mission!  :)  Transfers are tomorrow and I’m staying an extra week and will be home on the 17th.  My current companion (Sister Lilley) is getting a new companion, which she will be training, and we will be in a trio until I go home next Monday.  Sister Lilley will do a great job training!  I’m excited for her!  :)  She gets to send a missionary home, and start training a new missionary all at the same time! I’ve really loved having her as a companion, and I’m going to miss her.  I’m thankful for this last week to let it sink in that I’m really going home.  So weird!

We taught M___ this week about tithing and fasting, and he is excited to do both.  I’m so excited for his baptism, and so excited for M___!  I’ve never taught anyone more prepared.  His baptism will be on Wednesday, April 12!  :)

We also met with C___ this week, which was good.  He hasn’t been to church for a few weeks, so we were starting to get worried.  We were able to meet with him though, and he’s planning on going to church this Sunday. :)

Last night we went to the mission home and had dinner and a meeting for the departing missionaries.  We had what we call the “tie cutting ceremony”.  Just a fun thing to do where we cut off a piece of a tie to signify that we are wrapping up our missions.  We also had a testimony meeting, and I totally had a hard time giving my testimony.  Yeah, pretty much cried through the whole thing.  :)  I’m really going to miss the good people here in this mission, the companions that I’ve had, and the Dymocks!  I’m so glad for this extra week that I get though!  :)

Today is my last P-day since I fly out next Monday!  It’s going to be a great week this week, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all when I get home!  Thank you so much for all of your letters, packages, your support, and your love!

Love you all,
Sister Worthen

PS:  This is what Paul had to say in Timothy:  “….and the time of my departure is at hand.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith”!  :)

When you haven't had time to eat anything but
oatmeal, cereal, and soup, the only
dirty dishes you have are bowls.  :)
