Dear Family and Friends,
Wow the time doesn't want to slow down!! Another week has flown by. This week was a tough one but wonderful. We are working a ton and trying new things to find people to teach and to help strengthen this area. On Saturday we had an awesome activity at the church. We organized a breakfast, and taught members of the ward how to do street contacts with a pass-along card. We then went all over the city doing contacts. It was wonderful and the ward members loved it. Then at church yesterday there was a small glimpse of change in the ward. They were smiling a little brighter and a little more united. As the members bore testimony, they each shared an experience about the activity and the power of missionary work. As a little 8 yr old boy bore his testimony he talked about a contact he did with an elderly man. He expressed how he knows that the church is true and that that same elderly man was present. The whole ward looked at the Elderly man (Luis) and his eyes were filled with tears. That little boy touched my heart. His testimony was pure and heart felt. He testified of the importance of helping the sisters and our loved ones learn about the gospel. My testimony was strengthened.
I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. It is the church of Jesus Christ reestablished here on the earth. We each have so much to offer and share and one of the most special gifts we can share is the gospel of Christ. I honored to be serving a mission at this time in my life, and know that I am doing the Lord's work.
I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!
