This week was
amazingggg. This is probably the best week i have had as a missionary. Not
because everything went my way, but because my faith is growing and the Lord was
very much present in our day to day. I was able to accept the things that are
out of my control, trust in the Lord, and keep moving forward. I can honestly
say that i have never been happier than i am right now.
We did two splits
with the elders quorum and we were able to teach WAY more people. We had some
great visits and on sunday we saw the fruits of our hard work and patience. We
have been working hard and we are trying to work smarter as well. We are
teaching better, more clearly, and more direct.
The Lord is blessing us for
our righteous desires and i am seeing now, more than ever, that the gospel is
not a list of beliefs or rules, but a map to be successful and find happiness in
this life. We all have problems, but as i was reading moroni 7 he taught that we
must have faith, hope, and charity. But he doesn't just say faith. He says:
"Faith in Jesus Christ." We must hope that through Christ we will be resurrected
and that we will receive eternal life. So no matter what happens, no matter the
problems that we face, we have hope. We understand the atonement of Jesus
Christ. We know He wants us to be happy.We know that through Joseph Smith a
fulness of the gospel was restored and we can find peace in the words of a
I have learned to love the words to a hymn- Assombro Me
Causa- which in english is: I stand all amazed. We can all change :)
