Hey y'all!
Happy Thanksgiving from good old cold Minnesota! This week has been so wonderful! I am truly so blessed. As I have heard it said here in Minnesota a time or two, "blessed by the best!" I will report on what happened each day next week.  Today I want to share with you my testimony and the things I am grateful for. I feel like it is fitting because of it being Thanksgiving day.

      First off I want to say how grateful I am for my loving Savior, Jesus Christ. I can't express enough the love and gratitude I have for Him. He suffered so many pains, afflictions, heartache, and grief, so we wouldn't have to face those things alone. Not only is he there through all of our trials and tribulations but, he is there for all of the joy, happiness and times of love as well. He is there for it all. He has felt it all. I am so grateful that I know my Savior loves me and is always there for me. That is why I am here. I want the people here in Minnesota to feel that love that the Savior has for each and every one of them.

      I am so grateful for my family. I have the best family in the entire world. I wish I would have realized that sooner. I have been raised in Christ's true church here on the Earth today and I am so grateful I can be with my family forever. I love my family so much. I can't wait until I can see all of them but until then, I can feel their love and prayers. I am so grateful for the simple things in life. So many people in the world don't have even the simple things needed to live. I am so extremely blessed.

     I wish there was more I could do to help Heavenly Fathers children. I know God will take care of them though. I am so grateful for my mission and for all I have come in contact with because of my mission. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make, but it has been so worth it. I have been able to feel a little bit of God’s love for his children, and that has been life changing. I know God lives and loves each and every one of us,
     I am so grateful I can share this loving message with the people of Minnesota. The time on my mission is so precious and I am so grateful for every second of it! (Even the lice and bed bugs last spring……)

      I know this gospel is true and I want to invite everyone to share it with someone you love, because you know and I know the joy and peace it can bring to our lives.  I leave these things with you in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

     I hope you all have a hap hap happy thanksgiving!!!
Lots of love,
Sister Young
