I cant believe we have reached December!!! I love this time of year because it is the time to be able to reflect on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Avoid the things of the world and focus on Him. I promise your Christmas will be even better than normal :)
This week was a good one as usual! We are super blessed every day and tiny miracles happen all the time. I love it! We have an investigator whose name is Maria. She is wonderful. She is 21 years old and has had a really rough past. Her dad and her brothers are alcoholics and all her life has been pressured and tempted and really tried. She has made mistakes but is super determined to change her life and follow Christ.
This past Sunday, we fasted with her to be able to resist temptations and that her family would be able to support her more with her decision. She came to church and was able to feel the spirit super strong. We talked in the Gospel Principles class about the power of fasting and how it helps us to be able to excercise self control. At the end of the class, she bore her testiony of fasting that it really helped her to be able to understand the importance of resisting temptations. It was super special. She was able to receive a strengthening, enabling power from the Savior through fasting and now she is stronger than ever. :)
I know that the Lord tests us. However, we should thank him for these trials and ask him for help to get through them. He will help us if we do our part. :)
Con mucho amor siempre,
Hermana Elisheva Ali :)
