#76 Elder Holland (1/28/2020)

Hola familia y amigos!Well we had changes and I stayed with Elder Mundel(from Idaho) but Elder Murcia went to Colombia(still in the mission we had 7 over months together).I got to see the Rodriguez family in Quito that I taught and they moved. They have a date for marriage and baptism and they are so happy to have a date. We saw Elder Holland and he shook everyone's hand to ïnterview us ̈and talked about being good missionaries and lifelong disciples. So it was an awesome message but a really good quote I liked was when he said "Mans extremity is Gods opportunity" pushing us to the limit is how God can change us and work with us. Then he said "Satan cant take away our Agency and God wont, but we can offer it to him" what an investment it would be to give our agency to God and always do what he wants us to do. I think very few people reach that point.I read this yesterday in John 1517 These things I command you, that ye love one another.18 If the world ahate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.19 If ye were of the aworld, the world would blove his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen
you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Really if we are doing things right not everyone should love us. The world and people love us when we give into peer pressure and do worldly things. We should always love others, but it doesn't mean that they will love us back. Very few loved Christ and maybe just the very select few that are righteous will love us, but it doesn't matter as long as we do what is right.-Elder Hallsted
