May 9, 2016


Hope you had a good one mother. Super good to see you guys and talk to you all. Ha weird I'll be back in under 3 months now but guess that just means... You have that long till I can clean my room again. 

This last week was pretty special. Finally got to see the creation of the stake here and learned a lot about the organization of the church and how it works and also about being a priesthood holder. Pretty important to be worthy and trusted and using the authority always. We gave prolly 5 blessings of health this last week and then got to see a bunch of people moved up as high priests to form the council and stuff here.   Just made me think about how important it is to fulfill our callings and do what the Lord wants us to do.

I also started thinking about a question that someone asked Elder Gonzalez of the 70. They asked how he studied the scriptures and he said something and then said that that is how he studied NOW but maybe it's different for where we are at in our lives. Made me think a little about the style that each of us has to do stuff. Anyways the topic is pretty much " Find your own style" Like in the mission some people see a missionary and want to be like them but the truth is it's just gunna put you in the ruts of them and you won't reach your own potential. Helps me see that we should find our own way to do stuff. Lots of times in the scriptures it talks about it.  For example when Jesus was with his disciples it says that it got late and so he decided to stay and later he shares the sacrament with them and seems like it's just a coincidence that he stayed but I think it has alot to do with listeneing to the spirit and finding your own style to doing stuff.  Also when Jesus was in the Americas before he headed back he seen the faith and stayed and blessed the sick and the children and stuff. He still fulfilled his job but he listened to the spirit and could do more than just what he was sent for. Looking for the gifts of the spirit I think are some keys to the finding your own style to doing things. That's just kinda a little thought I had between our choir songs ha.

Anyways this week was dope! This next week we have to prepare a capacitation for the zone and then Wednesday get the zone here and teach some doctrine about baptizing :) best calling ever...

Hope everyone is doing good and I be praying for y'all. 
Give Dev some birthday beatens and I'll talk to you next week.

Con Amor
