Here is an excerpt from Elder J. Jarman’s recent letter home:
Yesterday was my 5-month mark. I can’t believe it. The days feel weeks and the weeks feel like days! Our mission has a motto ‘Forever Changed’. I’m not sure really how much I’ve changed since I’ve gotten here. At first glance, I don’t think I’ve changed at all! But the more that I think about it, the more I realize that the Lord has been preparing me in a million small ways. I don’t know if I could go home and be this totally different person… But I know that, line upon line, decision after decision, I’m a better person today than I was yesterday. And maybe I’m not forever ‘totally’ changed, but I know that when I’ve relied on the Faith in Christ, hard work, and a belief in miracles, I’ve become something… more. And I am so grateful for Heavenly Father’s help in that.
