Wooo! It has been an awesome week!
On Tuesday Maricruz and Hivan got married!!!! Wooo! I love them. They are seriously the best. And so prepared by the Lord. This Sunday we are hoping to baptize them! I love them and love their faith and testimonies. They are truly amazing.
Yesterday we had the meeting with Elder Anderson. And it was amazing. He truly is an apostle of Jesus Christ. I could feel it as he entered the room and as I shook his hand. One amazing thing I learned at the conference is how amazing and powerful the book of mormon is. I love the book of mormon. My love for the book of mormon has grown so much on my mission. Elder Anderson said that our investigators need to love the book of mormon. Not only read it, but love it. Because if they love it they will stay in the church. They will stay converted to the gospel because if they love it, they will read it and apply it. I love this. It is true for everyone! As we read the book of mormon we will have a deeper love for it! Read the book of mormon everyday. There is time! I promise. Make time to read it. Set time aside for it. It is so important. Study it personally and as a family. As you read it, I know that you will come to know our Savior more in your life. There are so many converts here that dont attend church anymore. And I know one of the reasons is that they dont read the book of mormon. If they did, they wouldnt fall away. They dont understand how important it is. The book of mormon is literally the words of God that we have in our hands, and sometimes we think their is not time to read it? It testifies of our Savior Jesus Christ. Of what he did for us. Of how we can better our lives through Him. This book is sacred. I know it is true and I know that it changes lives. It will change all of our lives over and over again as we continue to read it!
I love you all! Have a good week! And read the book of mormon everyday! It will strenthen you and help you through anything and everything you are going throught.
