This is what I want my final words from the mission field to be:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know it and I want you to know it too. Just give it a chance because I can promise you it will change your life. It's not an easy thing to accept, it took me 20 years to get this far, but the journey is beautiful despite all of the challenges. Without the Savior and His Atonement my life would be without purpose. I'm grateful for the perfect plan that Heavenly Father created for each of our lives. The Lord loves us all despite our weaknesses. He sees what we can become. I know you have probably heard that numerous times, but it's the truth. That truth is what keeps me going each day.
I love the gospel. I love my Heavenly Father and I'm grateful that He will always love me back. His love is perfect.
Never give up on what you know to be true. Bad things happen because good things are to come.
I love you all and I have loved my mission. I'm sad that it's over now, but "there are no true endings, just everlasting beginnings."

P.S. For my friends at home, I will be landing at the SLC airport on Sunday, February 15th at 2:30 pm. Those of you that want to be the first ones to see my face, be there and wait for me to come down those infamous escalators. Everyone is welcome and admission to the show is free. All that I ask is that you donate a bar of chocolate to the "Emily will be hungry and jetlagged fund". After the show we will have a shindig, if you will, at my house in Tooele. Any questions? Ask my dad because he's the smart one. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org
For friends who are on missions, you can continue to write me at Emilytrinhly@gmail.com
If you don't fall into either of those categories, well I don't know what to tell you. See ya when I see ya.
