A mission is a strange experience
It is a trial and a test.
A mission throws at you the worst
Yet, teaches you the best.
I've never been so happy,
I've never been so depressed.
I've never felt so forsaken,
I've never felt so blessed.
I've never been so confused,
Things have never been so clear.
I've never felt my Heavenly Father so distant,
He's never been so near.
I've never been so discouraged,
I've never been so full of hope.
I feel I could go on for forever,
I think I've come to the end of my rope.
I've never had it quite so easy,
I've never had it quite so tough.
Things have never been so smooth,
Things have never been so rough.
I've never traveled through more valleys,
I've never ascended more peaks.
I've never met so many nice people.
I've never met so many freaks!
I've never had so many ups,
I've never had so many downs.
I've never worn so many smiles,
I've never had so many frowns.
I've never been so lonely,
I've never had so many friends.
BOY, I hope this is over soon,

GOSH, I hope this never ends.

  1. Dear Elder/ Sister,

    Hi, my name is Alice Yiu and I am a member originally from Hong Kong and currently going to school in BYU-Hawaii. I am going to Bonn, Germany for my internship at the UN University this coming September and I have been trying to find the contact information of my Bishop and other ward leaders in Bonn on the Internet. Unfortunately, I still haven't found a specific number that I can call. I really would like to contact a leader from my ward in Bonn. Could you please send me an email at s.alice.yiu@gmail.com and I can tell you more about my situation? Thank you so much!
