¡Familia y Amigos!
This week was pretty exciting!! We were able to start teaching a
couple that was a referral from one of our members and we are really
excited about teaching them!
But the Highlight of the whole week was yesterday. First off it was
Sunday so of course it was amazing, and second, our investigator came
to church (and even stayed for Sunday School!)!! but even better is
what happened in Sacrament meeting!
So we work with a handful of less active people in this area and I am
so grateful to get to know them all!! There is one family in
particular that I have been able to work with since I got here to
Albany, and Yesterday, the mom of the family received a calling to be
in the primary presidency. I about cried I was so happy! It was such
an incredible feeling, similar only to that of a recent convert
receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost the Sunday after their baptism!
And her husband came to church for the first time in several months.
They are working toward a date to get sealed in the temple to their
two kids. The gospel is truly incredible and the Lord is working
miracles all around us!
This week I am grateful for the Power and reality of the atonement of
Jesus Christ. This week I was reading in Mosiah where Kind Benjamin is
teaching the people about Christ. In Mosiah 4: 7-9 he tells them:
"And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger,
thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto
death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his
anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people.
And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of
heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and
his mother shall be called Mary.
And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the
children of men even through faith on his name..."
Our Savior came to this Earth to suffer for our sins, our weaknesses,
and our pains. Because of him we can change. How incredible is that
WE. CAN. CHANGE. I testify that that is true. Through the Love and
sacrifice of the only perfect man that lived, we can become clean. We
can become better, and one day we can live with our Heavenly Father
It is all made possible through the Savior Jesus Christ. Trust in him.
If you are burdened by guilt, turn to the Savior. Do whatever it takes
to return to him. We are promised in the Scriptures "they shall not be
ashamed that wait for me."
So come unto the Savior. He can and will heal you and offers the
ultimate peace. All you have to do is let him in and begin to heal
what has been broken.
Love you all and Hope you have a week full of miracles!
