"Hey So I'm going to keep this bad boy short because most of you I'm emailing are missionaries and don't have a lot of time to read a long letter.
I remember coming into the mission and London was my first area. There was two things in the back of my mind that I didn't want to do. I didn't want to do ysa work and I didn't want to go to the Oshawa zone..... I spent 10 months in ysa and a year in the Oshawa zone. I believe that God has a sense of humor and that he also knows what we need and what we want, but he will put our needs first.
I spent a lot of my time in my mission thinking about myself and I was depressed because of that and made things harder than they should have been. I have learned that the best thing to do in a mission is to not think of yourself so much. It will make things soooooo much easier.
This mission has been a blessing to me even though it has been hard. I have come to truly want to be and do good.
Thank you to all that are in this letter. Someway or another you were involved in this journey and I thank you for it. Please keep in touch as I like to remember my friends. If you email me I will email back.
Also of those missionaries out there, keep working hard and using the Lords time wisely.
I love you all and once again, thanks
-Elder Jaxson Toly
Truly I am grateful for this experience and all that comes with it. Thanks to all of you that have followed me on this journey or supported me in anyway! We got our transfer calls on Sunday from one of my former companions and he let me know that I was getting transferred to Lethbridge YSA. I am excited for what the future holds. My mission has been a great experience and a highlight of my life, but I don't plan on making it the highlight. Looking forward to having many other highlights and continuing to better myself as a representative of Jesus Christ.
