I still can't believe that I'm going home. To me it only feels like I've been here a year -- if that. It literally just flew by.
I'm really going to miss Brazil though. Its been a blast being able to live here for the last two years. I have grown to love Brazil (even though it is really hot at times). I'm grateful for the opportunity I had to be a missionary and to be able to meet so many wonderful people, help and see them change their lives as their faith in Jesus Christ grew.
I understand now why everyone calls it the best two years. I feel like I have just grown in so many ways. Now I'm super excited for life and all its challenges. I look forward to being able to accomplish my goals and dreams.
I'm dreading Tuesday when I'll be asked to take my name tag off.
I don't have much to say at the moment. It's still only semi real to me. I'm sure I'll have a ton to talk about when I get home.
[Dallen returns home early Tuesday morning. He will be speaking Sunday, March 20th in church. All are welcome to attend and hear some of his mission experiences as he shared the gospel with those he came to love in Brazil. Church services start at 12:40. The chapel is located at New Hope and Cammie Wages road.]
