 Here is how these seven elders summarized their experience serving in the PPM:

My Mission Was Successful Because ...

 "Christ and His gospel has taught me how to have love for people and overcome my anxieties."  

"I learned that success comes from trying our hardest.  The Spirit helps us when we feel we aren't doing that."  

"I have learned that I am a son of God.  This gospel has helped me to gain an appreciation for the simple things we can do that will make a difference for people.  This has been a life changing experience!"

"I have seen how much the Spirit works with us and enable me to feel that love.  

The Spirit fills the gap.  I love my Savior!  I have learned to slowdown, I  have learned to follow the Holy Ghost." 

"Jesus Christ has refined us through his atonement.  I have seen people develop faith.  I will serve the Lord for the remainder of my life!"

"Learned to understand the workings of the Spirit!  I am changed.  I have totally changed through Jesus Christ.  I have learned to share that through being an example.  If we continue on we will prosper in the land.  Coming to my Savior Jesus Christ has changed my life!"

"I have come to know my Heavenly Father in a much more profound way.  Putting my trust in Him has made me.  I can look into the eyes of my Savior and know that he loves me.  I love my Savior!"
