Mission is the Best!! Everyone Should Go!!

April 6, 2015

Hey Family and Friends,

I am very grateful to be a missionary!!! It’s the best experience ever!!! I don't know!!! It’s so sweet!!!!! I love it so much!!! I hope that I never wish away any experience of any day and learn to be grateful for everything that happens as a missionary!!! It’s the best!!! It truly is!!! Mission is the best but so is life!!! We are here to learn and grow!! And I am grateful that I get to learn so much from my mission!! I am grateful to be a missionary!!! The things that I never even expected to learn on mission I am learning. It’s a huge blessing. Mission! Everyone should do it!!! It’s the best!!! Best in the world!!! I really hope to be able to do what my mission president says and let my mission lay a foundation for my eternity.

Our investigator, Hope, should be being baptized this week!!!! She is the most beautiful Malawian I have ever met!! I am so happy for her!!! And same with Justine—he is a great guy too!!

One of our investigators is Andy. He is the cutest. I don't get emotional very often but as we were teaching him this week, I think it’s the first lesson maybe second I have gotten emotional in. We were teaching Andy and his Mom finally decided to join us. She started asking about the Book of Mormon so we started to teach her about it. Well…Andy cuts in and said, “Mom turn to Mosiah 13” and then he starts reading to her and saying,  “See Mom, the Book of Mormon is not against God or against the Bible—there’s the Ten Commandments! It works hand and hand with the Bible. He was just so, so excited to share the Gospel with his mom. It was the best moment on mission so far. It was precious. When we first met Andy, his Mom was crazy.  She kind of chased us away but by the end of the lesson, she started thanking my companion and me and saying “Andy has never been come to church and now he is sharing the word with me and it’s just amazing! I don't know how you guys did it but thank you!” She gave us chicken and pumpkins. Mission is incredible. I hope I never forget this experience, watching Andy explaining his love for the Gospel to his Mom. It was a priceless moment. I love mission. How can I ever go home? I won't lie--I don't think I will ever be ready to come home. It’s the best! Mission is the best!

Well this week we have been up at 4:30 three days in a row. Only in Malawi! Sister Muthengi (trainee) was being transferred to Zambia. We go to the airport, her flight had been canceled. So we take her the next day to the airport. Then the next day we were sending off a missionary from Malawi to Uganda--Priscilla. Truly one of the best people I know!! I’m sad to have her leave, but I am so excited to have her experience a mission. She is ready, more ready than anyone. And then Sister Rasband's companion never came because of visa problems! Maybe next week we’ll see her. We as a threesome have been working in Area 47 (my old area) and Area 49 (my current area) It’s been really hard to be in my old area. I miss the people there soooo much! But it’s been good!!!! Its not where you serve--its the people and how you serve!!

Mission is a blessing, a HUGE blessing; I wish that every person in the Church had the opportunity to serve a mission. I know it’s not a requirement for girls, but it’s the best. It’s hard to explain how good it is until you get here. YOU learn so much. DESIRE is the key. If you have a desire to serve—DO IT--Because this desire will pull you through every hard time. And it will change you!!

I’m grateful for you all!!!!!!!!!!!! I love being a missionary.
Sister Falco
