This last week was super good. We were able to work hard but I was also able to learn more about suffering with Joy as our President always says to us.
Bueno I have been learning about how almost anyone that we learn about in the scriptures and the prophets all had to suffer or they had a lot of afflictions at one point. And for one example it talks about in Alma with Ammon and his brothers and the others that the Lord said to them to have patience because they were going to suffer but he said to them to go because they were going to bring a lot into the kingdom of God.
I feel as if that is what God says to us, "Be patient my little one and you will learn from your afflictions and also will bless others". I think that being a disciple of Christ was easy to say yes to but I think that it’s a lot harder to continue to be one every day. We have to be better every day and every second. Sometime life gets hard and we think that we can’t get up, but all we have to do is have faith in God and use the strength we have to lift ourselves and God will help us the rest of the way. I know that is true because I have felt that way so much and I recently felt that this last week. I know that God loves us and I am so thankful for everything that he has put in my way to teach me, even though it’s hard. But, I am even more grateful for those that he has put in my life to help me get around the obstacles of life. I know that God loves us all but I do know that his idea is that we can act for ourselves and that we can do what we want. He doesn’t want to force someone to have life eternal. He wants us to look for it and go search until we find it.
Soooo this last week also we were able to teach our friend Mario. We were able to talk about his baptism because he was going to get baptized last week but because of some things we decided to move it to this week. He is so ready to make covenants with Heavenly Father and I am so happy for him because he understands the spirit so good and knows where to look for his answers.
I know that this is the work God wants us all to do! I know that this is the true church and this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ and that this is where we find true happiness.
