I apologize ahead of time for this email but we really have no time. Today was crazy. And sorry I couldn´t respond to anyone´s individual emails. No time. But I love you all.
This week we had Mission Tour and it was awesome. Every missionary had to prepare a talk and four random people got chosen to talk in front of everyone... in Spanish. And I got chosen! It was a bit scary but it was an awesome experience. My topic was how perfect love casts out all fear. Definitely prayed for some more love to cast out all the fear I had to speak ;) President Corbitt told me that President Cornish (the leader of the church in the Carribean) was really impressed with my Spanish. I also directed the music for the meeting which was cool. After Mission Tour, my companion and I got to study with President Corbitt which was an amazing opportunity. He really is an incredible man.
I have noticed that it´s true, perfect love really does cast out all fear. I believe this is so because fear only exists when we are thinking of ourselves (what´s going to happen to me, will I be embarrassed, etc). Yet, love only exists when we are thinking of others. And so, as we direct our thoughts to others, fear becomes impossible. We come to think only of others, and our fear leaves.
If we fill ourselves with love, there will be no room for fear. Because we are already full.
I love you all,
Write me! I would love to hear from you! :)
