This week was hard. But really rewarding. The whole mission had an opportunity to experience the Atonement firsthand. For those who don’t know, Elder Page, an elder serving here passed away this week. He was hit by a car and never regained consciousness. Yesterday we met as a mission for his memorial service. The love of the Lord was felt, and love between the servants of the Lord was shared freely. Many tears were shed. But I know so much more deeply how important the Atonement is, I know to a greater extent how the Lord feels about us. My capacity to love has increased. The plan of salvation is so much more real to me. Guys, life is good. The Gospel is true. And I know that it is the only thing that can bring us hope. It is the only thing that will neer abandon us. It is there in the hardest of times. It is what makes good times good. I love it. And I love all of you.
Elder Andrew Edward Page.
