first, yes i am still alive. but thank you for all of the letters! i love to hear from the family!
this week has gone by so fast! i can't believe im writing you guys again! we are in the second week of the new transfer and today we had a training meeting. president has changed some things and i honestly think its going to help. We are focusing more on preach my gospel.... also on baptisms, obviously! i am getting really excited. this way we are finding a lot of new people. this transfer there are only 2 pairs of missionaries. before there were 3 pairs so we are missing a pair and that means that our area got a lot bigger! so we are recieveing a lot of new references and walking a lot more, but i love it because we have more area.
today in our training we were asked why do we want to baptize. They called on me and the first thing that i thought of was valeria, my first convert. the image of her going into the font and coming up as a new person was so amazing and it is something that i will never ever forget. i am here in the mission because i know that being baptized and following the example of jesus christ will literally save your life. I know that we as latter day saints dont do a lot of stuff....not becuase we are weird, but its because we know that there is pure and true revelation from a living day prophet. sometimes they may seem like rules that trap us, but really they set us free. the number one thing you should always be thinking is.. is the spirit with me right now?
i know that this gospel changes people. i have seen it with my own eyes and with my own life. The decision to serve a mission literally saved my life. if i wouldnt have made this amazing decision i dont know where i would be, honestly!
i know that baptism is the only way we can enter in to live with god and jesus christ and with our family forever. Take a minute and think why our church, the church of jesus christ of latter day saints is different. it is because we have the restored preisthood authority again here on the earth. i am so grateful for the opportunity to be apart of this gospel that is allowing me to share it with other people.
i love the gospel, i love my heavenly father and i love every single one of you. if you are falting (missing or lacking) something, its not too late to start again. go to your heavenly father and talk to him. he is there and is ready to listen. este evangelio es verdadero. se eso con todo mi corazon.
les quiero muchisimo. que tengan una buena semana!!!!!!
