I feel strangely uninspired to write this time. We also got jipped out of our internet time so this will be short.
Tuesday we had interviews with President. That was awesome. Honestly words can´t begin to express how much I love that guy. He is beyond inspired on personal and mission-wide levels.
Yesterday, Sunday, we had a ¨Dia Santo¨ where, as a mission, we all put forth all our effort to be 100%, exactly obedient, to the line. I am grateful for a mission that values exact obedience and that tries to improve every day. Through exact obedience we access greater blessings and the grace of the Lord is shed upon us.
20 For if you keep my commandments you shall receive ofhis fulness, and be glorified in me as I am in the Father;therefore, I say unto you, you shall receive grace for grace.
On Wednesday we had an amazing lesson about the Plan of Salvation with Raquel. She asked the best questions and was so amazed at the plan. The Spirit was so strong and added to my testimony of the great plan our Father in Heaven has made for us. She came to church for the first time yesterday and brought her husband. I love visiting her. She´s something special.
We had another really special lesson about the Restoration this week with Pablo. He´s 76 and has 54 years in his church. When we teach him he tends to quote the Bible from memory and if we ask him to read a scripture, he usually can just recite it off the top of his head. Well, turns out he began talking about the 70 that´s mentioned in the Bible before we got to the part about Joseph Smith. Well when we got to explain to him that the church had been restored and that there are now modern day prophets and apostles and seventy, the Spirit was thick. I am so grateful for this restored gospel. It´s rather amazing, what God has done for us. He has provided us with the fulness of the truth.
Just got advised there are only 2 minutes left...Sorry to all that I wasn´t able to write... which I think was everyone...
I love you all. The church is true. Keep shining,
Write me! I would love to hear from you! :)
