Szia Friends and family!
Sister Whittaker’s 8th (and final) week at the MTC
July 17, 2014
I can’t believe the time has come for me to finally embark on my adventure to Hungary. I leave on Monday at 6:00 a.m. we fly to Chicago, then to London England, then home sweet home. I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to be able to be a servant of the Lord, and that He has trusted me enough to teach in this difficult language and to spread the gospel to people who have had such sadness and sorrow throughout their lives. What an honor!
I have truly loved the MTC and I am dreading the day when I have to say goodbye to my zone, my district and all the many other friends I’ve met along the way. I have come to know my Heavenly Father like never before, and the spirit I have felt is indescribable. I feel so much gratitude for the experiences I’ve had here and the little miracles I’ve seen everyday. Enjoy the MTC, because it really is how you make it.
Thank you for all the love and support, you will never know how much it means. I love this gospel with all of my heart. I know that God and His Son Jesus Christ live and they are with us every step of the way. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he was willing to die than deny the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know that when we pray, God hears every word and He will always reach out his hand when we ask. You are never alone, and I know that through Jesus Christ, we can conquer anything that is put in our path. I know that Christ didn’t want to suffer, He asked His Father if it could be done any other way, unfortunately there wasn’t any other way but He still did it. He loved His Father enough and He saw the eternal perspective.
This is my last email until I get to Hungary. Be safe, enjoy this beautiful life full of hardships and happiness, and always remember that you have a loving Heavenly Father waiting for you to just ask for help and guidance.
God be with you all!
All my love, Whittaker Nover!
