this week was a bit crazy. Our landlord was painting our house (inside) and my companion got sick so we weren´t able to leave too much. We also had to stay with some other hermanas for a couple of nights. Lots of great stuff.
However, one thing that I learned this week is that I love serving people. I read a talk from the April conference of 2009 by Elder Oaks. I suggest you all read it. It was called something like ¨Selfless Service¨ Something like that. Really, I love that the church asks us to give up all that we have to serve the children of God. Forgetting yourself is super hard but when accomplished you can do great good and feel the love of God.
I also studied in Ether 12 about faith. We have a saying here in the mission :
La Fe es el poder. (Faith is the power)
La obediencia es el precio. (Obedience is the price)
El amor es el motivo. (Love is the motive)
El Espíritu es la clave. (The Spirit is the key)
Cristo es la razon. (Christ is the reason)
Ether 12 talks a lot about the first line.
I loved the whole chapter and would suggest that you read that too. But I especially loved vs 8-9
If ye will but have faith. Never Never undermine the faith that you have. And never never undermine what it can do. Faith is the power to believe in God and believe that He is there to help us.
