Today was my last full day in Nicaragua. For a treat we were all offered to pick one of two field trips to either Mombacho, a volcano, or a boat tour of Lake Managua. I chose Mombacho.
We were taken up to the top in a crazy ride in an all-terrain vehicle. When we neared the top, we circled around the circumference of the volcano. Everything was green and lush and flowers grew everywhere. I was reminded again what a beautiful place this is. I don't ever want to leave.
I want to thank everyone who helped me to get here - all forms of support, especially my parents, from the bottom of my heart. You have helped to open my eyes, give me lifelong friends and memories, and gave me the gift of being able to give.
I would like to thank those of you who have been reading and the Press for letting me do this. I know my writing has been primitive at best, but I tried my best to convey as much emotion as I could, so you can understand and learn as much as I have this week.
I'd like to thank Sister Debbie for everything she does which is more than anyone can imagine.
I'd also like to thank Bonnie Black for helping me with the blog in her spare time which was almost non-existent, and the rest of Leadership for all they do.
Most of all, I would like to thank all my fellow missioners when I was trying to take on things I didn't understand. Thank you for always offering a touch of the hand to let me know I'm not alone.
