Elder Wadsworth home from Africa :)

Brent has been home for a while now, and we are loving and enjoying his company and seeing the wonderful changes that have taken place in his life while he was serving the Lord in Africa for 2 years:)  This is one of his last letters home:
Dear Family,

     I know I was warned that these last weeks would be fast. It's crazy how real it is getting. A lot of things happened this week and I have learned a lot. The last part of a mission is really defined by what a person does from the beginning. I didn't think I would have the energy that I have but its still there so I'm happy. We met two new people this week and both of them came to church. Both are young women that have children under 3 years. Its amazing how mistakes bring people around the pride circle back to humility where they can change. Most of the people we teach hear rumors almost immediately after we leave so it has been hard to find people. There aren't anti-mormon sights as much as the anti-mormon people here. Its sad how gossip spreads here but on the other side of people push through all of the fog they are prepared. We have high hopes! Serving a mission is such an adventure. I still feel like crying a little when I look back. It hasn't been easy. But I am always grateful that I did everything for the Lord and his cause. So I'll keep doing it!
