We had a great week here in Los Postes!! I am still teaching the zone English and it is going well!
They like to learn, and it is super fun helping them with their accents :-,)
I did a work visit with Sister Ryan from California, who is finishing her mission today.I love her so much! I am thankful for her example. It was a little difficult for us to talk in English all day, we are so used to Spanish!
This week Marilú accepted to be baptized next saturday WOO HOOOOO!!
My dear sister Ally got married to the love of her life on saturday and I can't be happier for her. I've been thinking about this a lot this week, and I am so thankful that my parents were sealed in the temple 29 years ago and that thanks to that moment, I will live with my family forever and ever. It doesn't matter if I'm not going to see my family for a year and a half or 3 1/2 years, because I know that they are mine forever. and this is all thanks to Jesus Christ! I know that He suffered for me, I've felt Him near in the hardest times in my life. I have felt the Spirit testify to me that He knows and loves me. and thanks to His atonement, I can strive every single day to be worthy of the temple covenants I have made, which make it possible to live with my family forever.
In this past month I´ve been pondering a whole lot on the sacrament - it's happened to me before that we are running around trying to pick up investigators to go to church, and we walk in late and miss the sacrament. Wow! To think that I missed the most important thing in my whole week. whatever the situation be, it is NOT more important than taking the sacrament. That's the whole reason we go to church. In our homes we can talk about the gospel and have the Sunday School classes, but the sacrament is why we go. Yesterday I felt an overwhelming sense of peace as I took the sacrament. Knowing that my family is okay and that I have been called here for 18 months! Knowing that the Lord is aware of me and my feelings, and even when I make 429,054,823 mistakes during the week, He is there listening.
I love this gospel - I say that every week, but it's because I've come to know of its truth. My conversion has not been 2 weeks, nor 2 months. But truly seeing the CHANGE that the Atonement has made in my life, and how it's changed me into the new person I am today.I know God lives and I know families CAN be together forever.
