This week has been great! I love being a missionary. This week we found a mother and her two daughters, one 11 years old and the other 7. They are so prepared to hear the gospel. They told us that all they want is to know what counts in the eyes of the Lord. Their names are R (mama), L (11), and L(7). We are so excited to work with them.
This week I was thinking a lot about prophets because I finally have an ensign from conference in Spanish that we can share with others. I love reading and hearing these great men speak to us the words that God has for us. I was thinking one night about how to summarize the Resteration of the Gospel into one word and I thought of prophets. Prophets have the authority of the priesthood and if we listen to them we will never get lost. I invite all of us to read what the prophets have told us, old and new, so that we can always be sure that we are in the correct paths.
Also, I wanted to share with you some of the things that our beloved prophets, Pres. Monson, shared with us this last conference.
I have wept in the night
For the shortness of sight
That to somebody’s need made me blind;
But I never have yet
Felt a tinge of regret
For being a little too kind.
Small poem that has so much wisdom 🙂
READ THIS TALK!! It is really great. At the end this is what he says:
Dale Carnegie, a well-known American author and lecturer, believed thateach person has within him self or herself the “power to increase the sum total of [the] world’s happiness … by giving a few words
of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.” Said he, “Perhaps you will forget
tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.”12
May we begin now, this very day, to express love to all of God’s children,whether they be our family
members, our friends, mere acquaintances, or total strangers. As we arise each morning, let us
determine to respond with love and kindness to whatever might come our way.
I hope we can all try to love those around us and keep serving. No matter who small we think
something is it can make a HUGE difference in the life of someone.
Con muchísimo amor y un abrazo de oso!
