|Semana Santa/Holy Week|
|More Of Semana Santa|
Fifty tortillas, another chicken foot and a week full of apostasy. The best news: WE GOT LIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 13 days without light! Tuesday is when it came back on. I can’t even describe how grateful I am to have light and to have a fridge. I never realized how great it is to have light! So grateful!! Anyway Semana Santa (Holy Week) is crazy! It is nuts and not in a good way. It is sad, they all focus on the death of Christ; they hardly ever talk about the resurrection. It really should be called beer feast. So many people just drink, drink and drink some more, they are drunk all week. I wish that they would listen to our message and learn of the true meaning of Easter. I wish you guys could have seen this week. I hope Easter Sunday was great for you guys.This week we found a family that the missionaries used to teach. The relief society president was talking to the mom and told her to let us teach the family. She told her this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mom told the relief society president that she wanted her son to serve a mission. My jaw dropped when the relief society president told me. The next day I went to visit the family and to invite them to a branch activity. The mom told me she wants her son to serve a mission. I looked at him and asked him do you really want to be a missionary and he said yes. I told him to come to the activity and we can talk more. This conversation took place about 10 minutes before the activity, he didn’t come and he didn’t go to church but we are visiting them tonight.

Tortilla count for the week: 50 and one more chicken foot.
Scripture of the week: Luke 24:6 I know this church is true. I am more certain that the church has the priesthood keys than I have ever before. I know that Jesus Of Nazareth is the living Christ. I know that He was slain and crucified and on the third day and He rose from the dead. I know that since He lives and rose from the dead, you and I and everyone will live again in a resurrected body. I know that Jesus Christ is the living Son of a living God. I know he paid the price for our sins, sickness, pains, trials and more. I know that through the Atonement we can have a fresh start, a new page, and our regrets become relief. I know the power of the Atonement I have seen it in my own life. I know that Christ is calling every single one of us to Come Unto Him with arms wide open. All of us can be perfected through Christ. I give you my solemn witness that Christ lives and is a resurrected being. Come unto Christ every day. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
“Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is not an effort of once a week or once a day. It is an effort of once and for all.” President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
In Nazareth, the narrow road,That tires the feet and steals the breath,
Passes the place where once abode
The Carpenter of Nazareth.
And up and down the dusty wayThe village folk would often wend;
And on the bench, beside Him, lay
Their broken things for Him to mend.
The maiden with the doll she broke,The woman with the broken chair,
The man with broken plough, or yoke,
Said, “Can you mend it, Carpenter?”
And each received the thing he sought,In yoke, or plough, or chair, or doll;
The broken thing which each had brought
Returned again a perfect whole.
So, up the hill the long years through,With heavy step and wistful eye,
The burdened souls their way pursue,
Uttering each the plaintive cry:
“O Carpenter of Nazareth,This heart, that’s broken past repair,
This life, that’s shattered nigh to death,
Oh, can You mend them, Carpenter?”
And by His kind and ready hand,His own sweet life is woven through
Our broken lives, until they stand
A New Creation—“all things new.”
“The shattered [substance] of [the] heart,Desire, ambition, hope, and faith,
Mould Thou into the perfect part,
O, Carpenter of Nazareth!”
