This week was a week with many ups and downs - (Literally because there are so many hills and mountains here in los Tuxtlas haha) No I am constantly surprised by how much a person can learn in one single day, in a week. I feel like I grow so much with every hour, every lesson. In every minute that I'm here learning and living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This week we worked really, really hard with members. It's been really hard here but this week we dedicated to working with them so that the people we are teaching right now will stay firm. And that we can find new people who will have built in friends. And we were able to find so many new people with such a big desire to learn more! Sometimes it's the person you never thought would accept the great message of the gospel. But I saw this week that every member has someone in their life that needs the gospel. And all we have to do is search, ponder and pray to know who it is! And then share! It was such a great week too because we worked just as hard with the less active memebers! We started asking every member who they knew that hadn't been coming to church lately - and we met a bunch of families that haven't been to church in years!
We were able to really help each of these people and see the spark of the spirit testifying ot them that the things they knew to be true before are still true now. Remember that in the eyes of the Lord and in our eyes the worth of souls is great! Whether it be a non member, a member inactive, or a recent convert - to our loving Heavenly Father and His Son - It's the same. We should constantly be working in his work. I was reading a talk by a 70 from a conference in 2012 and he teaches that our missionary moments have to be current! This work is always pressing forward and so must we!
I invite you all to look around - who isn't there? Who can you invite to the Celestial Kingdom?
Sorry I don' t have fun stories - I need to start writing them down so I don't forget haha But I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for your love and support!
(Guess what - Today I went to an amazing waterfall. But sadly the computer won't work with the pictures again. Next week you'll see and you'll be very jealous :)
