|My Favorite Place To Be: The Temple|
Tortillas for the week: 35
So where to begin this week, the branch had two sealing’s in the temple in Xela and we are going to have a baptism this week. The branch is really changing. I had more than six hours of interviews this week and I am dead, but it is all worth it. THE BIG NEWS...READY...I TOOK PHONES IN ENGLISH CLASS!! (My dad would be so proud...hahahaha.)
|English Class=No Phones|
I was able to meet and talk with a less active who knows English because he lived in the States. So we talked in English. All l can say is wow, the spirit was so strong and he even said I can really feel how strong the spirit is. This conversation was the most powerful, testimony bearing one on one conversation I have ever had in my life. I asked him how much he remembers about the restoration of the gospel and he said to tell you the truth I don’t remember very much, I have forgotten most of it. So I reviewed it with him and when started to talk about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon just wow, I give praises to my Lord my God all the day long. As we read the first vision together it seriously felt like we were in the grove with Joseph. I testified to him that Joseph did see God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I asked him do you know these things to be true, he said no, I don’t but I believe them to be true. I then asked some basic questions, do you believe that Joseph saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ and he said yes with all my heart. He then said I believe the Book of Mormon to be true with all my heart and I believe in these things with all my heart. When he said that I said I know that these are true but I also believe. I believe these things to be true with all my heart. My heart was just filled with gratitude as we talked. I am seeing in him and in our investigator that if we just believe then the answer will come, just believe. I have seen how strong belief is, I am seeing that if someone truly believes, they will know, they will stay, they will Come Unto Christ. Yes we all say I KNOW THESE THINGS TO BE TRUE, but do you truly believe? That is the question we will all have to answer before Christ, did you truly believe? I can’t say enough about believing and how important it is because the Savior of the world said, all things are possible if you just believe. He also said be not afraid, only believe. I love those words from our Savior, Jesus Christ.

What I love about Mom is that she serves in the temple, what I love about Dad is that he goes to the temple when he can, and they prepared me to enter in the temple. Families Are Forever.
con mucho amore, ducks forever,
