Les doy muchos saludos!!!! I cannot believe how fast time is flying!!! It´s crazy. Im not a fan. But, my companion and I are working hard to bring sould unto Christ, working with members, working with the ward counsel and helping as many people as we can to live the Doctrine of Christ...the recipe to happiness :)
There is no greater work than this. I love it!!!! This week we were able to help a sister...Patty...to be rescued/reactivated. She is awesome! SInce the first time we taught her, she has fulfilled her commitments and her testimony has been strengthened incredibly. She has not missed one sunday and is super willing to give the Lord everything. She understands repentance and it is a beautiful thing to see :)
Also, this week, we were able to meet a young couple, who have not been to church in about 4 years to come back. They are super ready and willing to permit the Atonement to work in their lives to be able to repent and be sealed in the temple as an eternal family. It´s incredible. I know that whatever sin we have commited, whatever guilt or shame that we feel can be cleansed as we use the Atonement of Jesus Christ in our lives.
I was reading today in the Bible when Jesus teaches about the parable of the ¨joven rico¨ (I dont know how it is exactly in english...the ¨rich young man¨ perhaps) This young man asks what he needs to do to gain eternal life, and Christ replies that he must obey the commandments. The young man responds that he lives every commandment and Christ says, give up all of your riches, everything that you have, and follow me. The young man became sad and walked away. I LOVE this parable because it shows that our Father in Heaven desires that we have a sincere heart and a contrite spirit as sacrifice, and if we do so, He is prepared to give us eternal life.
Con mucho amor siempre,
