What a week...pretty sure I start every letter out the same :)
This week we had Zone Conference and presidente gave a lesson about Family History which I loved. If every family had one person who was a member who did their own family history..how great we could accelerate this work! I think about Nana a lot. One year anniversary. I am so thankful that she is part of my life.
We are going to have an one of the 12 apòstoles come speak in our mission this next month! I love the opportunity to explain to people about the priesthood. This is the clave. The permission from Heavenly Father to act in His name. Since serving a mission my respect and appreciation for church leaders has greatly increased as I try to serve the people in my sector. I know Thomas S. Monson es the mouth piece of Heavenly Father in the earth today.
This past Sunday was our ward conference. We were able to achieve the goal that the Bishop set of having 100 people attend Sacrament Meeting. Every menos activo who attends church again is another mini baptism. A hermanita se llama Marianela attended church after more than 20 years of inactivity...the Spirit touches hearts. It was so special to see her interact with the sisters..and she was so touched that people wanted to get to know her and her name. Things so simple a veces in our minds, but can really change lives.
This week I continued my studies about humility. This is an attribute of Christ, that I can study for a life time and still not understand completely. Ether-If men come unto me I will show them their weaknesses. I do not know how many times I have read this verse in my life, but it really struck a cord in my heart this week. The more I serve in the mission..the more weaknesses I am recognizing in myself. It is not punishment, but it is a opportunity to change...an opportunity to confide in Christ, and truly accept Him as our Savior. We are nothing without Him.
Mucho amor y cariño.
OH GREAT NEWS!!!!! Guess who can roll their Rrrrrs after 5 months in Chile...whoot whoot. Trying to lose the Gringita accent...still a work in process :)
Take time to realize the tender mercies of God in your life and you will be surprised how many miracles happen every day.
