Reflections

These past two years just might have been the fastest two years of my life. I remember the moments before I left home like they happened yesterday. But looking back and reflecting on everything that has happened in these past 17 transfers, I am eternally grateful that I chose to serve a mission. It has been a life-changing experience. "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God (Mosiah 2:17)." Serving a mission has brought a rich, colorful meaning to those words. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father, and that he sent His son, Jesus Christ to pay the price for our wrongdoings, and that through faith, repentance and baptism we can be cleansed of them and can be worthy to feel the guidance of the Holy Ghost. I have never known that with as much certainty as I do now. 

On Sunday, July 16 at 11:00 AM I will be giving my homecoming talk to report on my mission. This will take place at 4100 St. Johns Lane Ellicott City, MD. All are invited to attend.

I want to thank everyone that supported me before and during my mission, and I hope that at least a couple of people will support me afterwards too. I love you all!


Love, 

Elder Olivier
