This week was absolutely awesome because we were able to do a ton of service and also the best inviting others to come unto Christ.
1. First off though on Wednesday, March 13, My siblings Lillian, Emily, and Jonah are having their 15th birthday. I am completely bamboozled by how fast the time has gone because they will be soon receiving their permits! WHAT!? Make sure to pay extra attention because there could be one of them practicing out there on your street! haha
2. This week as usual, we tried to find as many opportunities to do some service and actually we were able to do some more wood cutting and sorting than Paul Bunyan.
3. The picture with the five of us is from left to right, José luis, Elder Bird, Benjamín, Nadia, and me. When we were teaching Nadia a little more about the concept of Priesthood. We also were able to invite her to be baptized, she said that she needs more time to prepare but can really feel that this church has the truth! We are so excited to have the chance to teach her.
4. This week I was studying in Helaman about the story of Samuel! He is the greatest. In Helaman 13:2-4:
2 And it came to pass that in this year there was one Samuel, a Lamanite, came into the land of Zarahemla, and began to preach unto the people. And it came to pass that he did preach, many days, repentance unto the people, and they did cast him out, and he was about to return to his own land.
3 But behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, that he should return again, and prophesy unto the people whatsoever things should come into his heart.
4 And it came to pass that they would not suffer that he should enter into the city; therefore he went and got upon the wall thereof, and stretched forth his hand and cried with a loud voice, and prophesied unto the people whatsoever things the Lord put into his heart.
I love what it says here because he was frustrated and about to go home until he followed the voice of the Lord and told them the words that He put in his heart. It is absolutely a tremendous example because when we hear the spirit tell us what we should do, we need to follow and do what it says as fast as possible!
I seriously am so happy to be here in Chile and pray that you all can come to feel the joy that only comes through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! I pray for all of you constantly! keep SMILING!
Hasta semana! CHAO😁
