I love talking about Christ because it's his gospel

Hola, this week was awesome! So many things happened. We worked really hard on our investigators this week. Especially the ones who need their papers for marriage. This week was very helpful to me because as I get farther in my mission I can stop worrying about the Spanish because I have a love for the people I can't explain. This week was extra special because Quentin L. Cook came. And as you know I was in the group that sang in the conference. It was an amazing experience I will never forget. His talk was absolutely amazing. He said something that hit my heart really hard and I would like to share it with you. He told us he is a witness that Jesus Christ lives, He said he doesn't usually tell people his really close experiences, but as he has been getting older he likes to share it with the missionaries. This is his experience - He looked all of us in the eye and said the following ''I know Jesus Christ's face, I know what his voice sounds like.'' It was one of the most spiritual experiences I have ever felt. The church is true. I know that to be a fact. This helped grow my testimony in Christ extremely. I hope it does the same for you. I love talking about Christ because it's his gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We have to be the greatest example to everyone as missionaries because we are representatives of Jesus. Jesus is the most loving person to step on this planet. He is the greatest miracle God has given to us. He is the reason we have hope in this life. He is truly our Savior and through him anything is possible. I know Christ is by my side helping me along the way. I know every miracle that happens in the mission is because of him. In one of our lessons a girl said that she felt like she was alone. My companion, who is a convert, has an amazing conversion story. Every time he shares it I feel the spirit. He looked straight into her eyes and said you are not alone. God is here. He knows you. We are here for you. This hit my heart really hard because in this moment I realized that I love the people here and I need to stop worrying that I can't speak the language. I love the people and know God will help me when it's needed. A mission is more then just bringing people to the gospel. It is for everyone you love. My family, my friends, my family to come and the generations after that. I know this to be true. It also has taught me more to be a man. Haha! I actually take care of myself now and I am grateful for that. This week me and Elder Kyle focused a lot with teaching with the Spirit. As we have done so we have been more effective. I have a challenge for everyone. If you are not reading the Book of Mormon every day please do so. As you read the Book of Mormon your days will be better. I know this to be true. I have another challenge for everyone. In D&C 38:40-42 it says that everyone is missionaries. You don't have to be on a mission to share the gospel. Invite people to come unto Christ. Help them find the joy in the gospel you have felt, My challenge for you is to invite one person to church this week, I promise as you do so your testimony will grow as you share what our gospel is and invite them to church. I love all of you!
