Week 99 - July 10, 2017


Wow, what an amazing last week it was here in the grand city of Wilkes-Barre, PA!  This week flew by in the blink of an eye, I swear!
Monday, I had my last ever District Meeting.  It was awesome.  I loved being a District Leader for such a great group of individuals.

Tuesday was obviously 4th of July.  We watched fireworks off of someone's deck and ate well that evening 🙏 
Wednesday, I had my departing interview with President Randall.  He is the most incredible man.  Honestly, I can't wait to see him up on the pulpit in Salt Lake in a few years. 
Friday, I had my departing temple trip with all the missionaries leaving this transfer.  That was amazing.  President Randall and the Temple President spoke to us before the session began and wow -- incredible experience. 

Saturday, I went back to the temple again with the stake and did baptisms and then another session -- that was once again wonderful. 
Sunday, I went down to Philly again and baptized Rachel, who was one of the investigators I taught in the YSA when I served there.  It was such a remarkable experience.

I honestly could not have asked for a better ending.  Brother Fletcher drove all the way from Maryland to Wilkes Barre -- 10 hours of driving total.  Couldn't be more thankful for him.  Love the Fletchers.

I am so sad to leave Elder Sandberg.  We had such an incredible time together. 

 (Elder Wilde calls Elder Sandberg, "My little son."  He was Elder Sandberg's trainer.)
 (Elder Wilde entitled this:  "We out here Reapin' !")

This week we have our departing missionary experience at the mission home on Tuesday, and then I will spend the last week of my mission in Cherry Hill!  I am so excited to go back and see everyone!!!
All is well - I will send my very last full time missionary email next Monday!!
LOVE YOU ALL. See you soon!
