Gloria got baptized. It was such an amazing miracle. I am so happy for her and I know that this gospel will keeping changing her life.
Also our convert, Jose, that got baptized in January, invited his friend to church. It was a young couple with a 6 year old daughter. And they came to church. What an amazing miracle!! Seriously. It reminds me of Alma. After his great change of heart and experience with the Atonement, what did he do? Alma 36:24. If we really experience this joy... What should we do??? SHARE THIS JOY WITH OTHERS... Share the gospel. What a great example is Jose.
I have been thinking a lot lately about the worth of souls. I love the scripture D&C 18:10. How does God see us?? I love this quote from President Uchtdorf. He said, "You are loved. You are dear to your Heavenly Parents. The infinite and eternal Creator of light and life knows you! He is mindful of you. Yes, God loves you this very day and always. He is not waiting to love you until you have overcome your weaknesses and bad habits. He loves you today with a full understanding of your struggles. He is aware that you reach up to Him in heartfelt and hopeful prayers. He knows of the times you have held on to the fading light and believed, even in the midst of darkness. He knows of your suffering. He knows of your remorse for the times you have fallen short or failed. And he still loves you. And god knows of your successes though they may seem small to you. He acknowledges and chericshes each one of them. He loves you for reaching out and helping others beart heir heavy burdens, even when you are struggling with your own. He knows everything about you. He see your clearly, he knows you asyou really are. And He loves you, today and always!!" I love this quote. I was thinking, If God feels this way about us and se3es us in this way, how should we see and feel about others?? We should see everyone as God sees us and them. We should focus on their potential. Our potential. This is the way we can become like Him. Trust me, it is easier said than done, but we can do it. We can see people in this way. All people. Everyday we should change little things to be able to see others as He sees them.
Love you all!! have a good week!!
