Subject: like christmas"A saint is a sinner that keeps trying."- Dale G. Renlund (Nelson Mandela)
woof! hello there fam and friends,
its been one heck of a week. ending it with conference was perfecto. It was honestly one of the best I heard, so much to draw from those talks. Holy moly the talk by Elder Holland!! It was like christmas.
Besides that bright spot of the week, the work was a little harder for the week, we weren't able to see much fruits of our labor but we still tried. In specific, we have been really focusing on that single mother investigator, Andrea. so many good desires, prays and reads regularly, but just doesnt come to church. But now with these talks like from Elder Nelson and Uchtdorf we have a lot to draw from and help her realize that, for example, we are all in need of repair... that church is like our repair station. We don't come to church to hide our problems but to be healed from them. The gospel is the medicine to our lives.
I love the simple truths to the gospel and how much comfort and warmth comes into our lives as we try little by little to live them, and truly be perfected in Christ. Life is good over here in Peru as a missionary, the work is coming along and there is a lot to look forward to.
Ill let you all know how this week goes when Pday comes around again! for now,have a good week and re read those conference talks for real!!
