This week has been crazy and super busy but I am loving it. Is it weird that I almost enjoy being tired? It means I`ve done a lot 🙂
We are preparing for our Christmas conference this week and it has been pretty fun.
Also, I don`t remember if I sent you a picture of my new companion last week:
This was a gift from an hna in a different ward. Isn’t it cute?
Her name is Hna A. She is my first Mexican companion! She`s from Moreles (in the south). I love working with her. She is super awesome.
I wanted to share with you all a scripture that I found this week that I love.
15 And it came to pass that after Aaron had expounded these things unto him, the king said: What shall I do that I may have this eternal life of which thou hast spoken? Yea, what shall I do that I may be born of God, having this wicked spirit rooted out of my breast, and receive his Spirit, that I may be filled with joy, that I may not be cast off at the last day? Behold, said he, I will give up all that I possess, yea, I will forsake my kingdom, that I may receive this great joy.
18 O God, Aaron hath told me that there is a God; and if there is aGod, and if thou art God, wilt thou make thyself known unto me,and I will give away all my sins to know thee, and that I may be raised from the dead,
and be saved at the last day.
This is the father of Lamoni. I love his conversion story. His questions really struck me. They are questions that I think we all ask sometime and in some way. He basically asks ´How can I have eternal life? How do I become a better person?´ The question he asks in 18 is my favorite. ¨wilt though make thyself known unto me?¨ It is a plea to know if God will answer him. If God knows he exists. Are we willing to give up everything to know God? In this week and a half we should all think of something we are willing to give up to get to know our Heavenly Father more. Make a goal. And don`t just forget about it but really try to let God know that you are willing to do whatever it takes to get back to Him someday. I know He will bless you for it.
With all my heart, I am so grateful for God`s love for me.
I love you all so much!!! Make this week one of giving and loving all those that cross your path.
con muchìsimo amor y un abrazo de oso
