Invite Others and Help Them

Hey everyone how's it going? It's been a good week here in Choloma! I'm learning a lot and I'm so grateful for the opportunity I have to be here in this mission. This week we had President Bush's farewell! I can't believe he's leaving. It was a really cool zone conference because everything we were doing was focused on preparing for the new mission president, President Cristales. He gets here on Friday so that'll be awesome. We're super excited and anxious for the change. It will be an awesome experience.

We have a lot of people that we're teaching right now and the Lord has been providing people for us to teach and opportunities to help them come unto Christ. I'm so grateful for the Spirit and its role as the teacher. We had a really cool experience yesterday with a new couple we were teaching yesterday as we testified of the restored gospel. It has always impressed me how the Spirit testifies so powerfully of the First Vision. I'm so grateful to be able to bear testimony of what I know and help others to come to the truth.

Something that's been pressing on my mind this week is the purpose we have as missionaries. Our purpose is to "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end." Our purpose is focused on others. It's not about us. It's about them. The people who need the gospel. God's children. And the only two verbs or action words in our purpose is to INVITE and HELP. That's what we're here to do. We need to invite them to participate in the atonement and help them do it. It's amazing I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be here preaching the restored gospel.

I know that God lives and loves us. We are his children. Jesus Christ loves us and wants to help us repent and come unto Him. If we let him he will help, bless, strengthen, and perfect us.

Love you all and have a great week!
