ITS ALREADY PDAY????? BUT IT WAS PDAY YESTERDAY??????? man o man time is passing by fast!!! But hey, im glad you guys are using all of my ski gear and are shredder up the trails!!! dont worry, ill do plenty of cliff jumps when i get back, haha
Well, today was awesome, first off I GOT TO SEE SYDNEY!!!!!! So yeah, i went to the CCM today and ate lunch with her!!! A member in my ward works in the CCM and arranged a time so i could eat lunch with her! So that was awesome! She is doing amazing!
Well, this week was one for of faith building experiences! I have really tried to focus on being a more pure person, in other words, focusing on spiritual things! Its SSSUUUPPPEERRR hard (especially after contacting a whole street without getting in a single door). Why? Well to be better missionaries we need to be more pure. Think of it like a glass of water with a laser passing through the water. If the water isnt pure, the laser cannot pass. If we are not pure, we cannot have the spirit with us. Plus in DyC seccion 50 it says that if we are pure, we can ask something of the Lord and we will recieve it. So we ALL need to be pure.
So yeah, my comp and I have really tried to improve our planning. We plan well, we analyze the needs of our investigators, we set goals with people in mind, but we never reach all of our goals. So this week we revamped our nightly planning to focus on how we are going to achieve our weekly goals. We did lots of verification every night, we planned well, and saturday we passed by EVERYONE and called EVERYONE and no one came to church, except our fecha…… so yeah, but one thing ive learned in the mission is that if we get frustrated, we are going agaisnt Gods will. In DyC 3:3 (i think) it says that Gods work is not frustrated, but mens work is frustrated. So, although i was bummed out that nobody came, i stay positive knowing that it was Gods will. It is a super hard perspective to have and develop, but it is worth it.
So yeah, last thing, my favorite topic of all in the Gospel: Repentance. Dad told me how he had been studying repentance, so i wrote him a little. Repentance is soooo amazing. Just the fact that Heavenly Father gave us a way to change and be more like Him!!! Its amazing! There are tons of scriptures about repentance. Repentance is changing our thoughts, actions, words, and beliefs so that they are in harmony with the teachings of Jesus. Nothing makes me happier than seeing myself and others change to be more like Christ. Its not easy, but it is worth it.
El arrepentimiento es un don de Dios. Estoy muy agradecido por la oportunidad que tenemos de arrepentirnos. Estoy agradecido por mi oportunidad de ayudar a otros a arrepentirse. En Moroni 8 leemos “y las premicias del arrepentimiento es el bautismo” Cuando una persona entra al agua, esa personas estan arrepentiendose y yo estoy feliz, ellas estan felices, y Dios esta feliz. Comparto esto en el nombre de Jesucrist, amen!
Los quiero mucho!
