A Transfer of Change -- Coming Home

Dear Family,
Thank you so much for all the prayers, emails, letters, fasting, and support. After a lot of prayers on my part, I have decided it is best to go home for a season, learn some things that I hadn't before, and really get to know me. I plan on coming back out to finish my mission, sometime around October. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. I know enduring to the end is a true principle. This is just a little curveball. I feel peace knowing that I have so much support from friends and family, and most importantly from Heavenly Father. Thank you for your love. It's been a great 9 months. I am so blessed to have served the people of California, and see lives change. I'll always be a missionary :)

(Note: Our daughter is receiving an honorable early release from her mission for health reasons and comes home tomorrow. We are so excited to see her and welcome her into our arms! Once we figure out exactly what the matter is, get her the proper treatment, and she feels able to continue, it will be up to her and the Lord as to whether she returns to the mission field or goes on with her life. Regardless, as she herself put it, she'll "always be a missionary.")
