I hope you have had an amazing week!! :D The work here in Tijuana is excelent!
If you want to serve a mission, I highly recommend reading Preach My Gospel at least 5 times all the way through. You won´t know everything, but it will help you. That book is inspired of God to help us do His work. I love the help and aid it gives me. :D
WE had Zone Conference on Wednesday. The night before, we went to the house of 4 other elders to celebrate and go to the conference together. I bought 41 tacos. Woo hoo! In the conference, I learned that faith needs works and that we will have results. If we are not having results, what are we doing wrong? Powerful principle for me. :D
In Stake Conference, we heard from a General Authority 70! He told us that we need to try the Lord. He is saying to us, "Try it. Keep my commandments. We need to take a step in the dark first to win the blessings that the Lord wants to give to us. If we take a step, who is the Lord to not fulfill his promises?" The Lord will bless us as we keep the commandments, even when we don´t know everything. That helped me. THe Spirit told me "You went on a mission without knowing Spanish or about the life you are living or everything. Look at the blessings you are winning. Good work. Keep it up." That was inspiring and calming to me.
I know that the Spirit guides us in all facets of this work. The Lord wants to bless us. We just need to keep on moving.
I love you all!! Have an awesome week!
Love, Elder Ballard
