If Ye Have Felt to Sing the Song of Redeeming Love, Can you Feel so Now?

Buenos Tardes familia, amigas y amigos!

We're already 3 weeks into January! I can't believe it!!! I remember when I was waiting for it to be Christmas!

As time has flown by we've had a great time - recently we've taught a couple solid families that are super prepared to hear the gospel! A missionary's purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ - meaning ALL people. But how I LOVE teaching families! It's a different feeling I think that really captures the spirit of our goals to be together a family for eternity!

We've been teaching Miriam and Cesar and their two little girls. They were gone for vacation and when they returned someone had broken into their house and stolen all their electronics 🙁... It seems like they're struggling to make ends meet but they are an awesome family. They kept asking questions about our message and saying, "Sorry we have so many questions" We told them it's okay! That questions are good - that' s how we learn! We are excited to teach them more!

We've also been teaching Gabi and Armando and their daughter Emily. Usually only Emily and Gabi are home because Armando works out of state a lot, but we are trying to help them come to church and receive all the blessings that come from going!

We're also really excited about a Musical Fireside that we're planning for February 18th! It's called the "Power of Music" and we're inviting all people from the Stake to be participating. It's going to be LEGIT! We're going to show this video as part of it and we'll be sure to record the songs so we can send them to you 😁!

I love these quotes about music:
"We get nearer to the Lord through music than perhaps through any other thing except prayer.”
-- President J. Reuben Clark Jr., in Conference Report, Oct. 1936, 111
“Music is truly the universal language, and when it is excellently expressed how deeply it moves our souls.”
-- President David O. McKay, in Conference Report, Apr. 1945, 119
“The most effective preaching of the gospel is when it is accompanied by beautiful, appropriate music.”
-- President Harold B. Lee, in Conference Report, Apr. 1973, 181
“Inspiring music may fill the soul with heavenly thoughts, move one to righteous action, or speak peace to the soul.”
-- President Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, Nov. 1974, 67


Well, LOVE YOU ALL. Thanks for all the support that you give; I appreciate you all! Will write you again next week!

Love,
Hermana Bigley
