8 June 2015 - Garden City - Spanish

Buenos dias everyone!! I hope you all had an amazing week!
El campo blanco esta ya para la siega.

On Tuesday, we had the opportunity to go to the Oklahoma City Temple! It was such an amazing experience and the Spirit that is in the house of the Lord is so powerful and real, even outside on the grounds.

On Saturday, we went to try Jaime, who we've been trying to contact for a couple of weeks. He was there and was fully on board to learn more and come closer to Christ. About halfway through the conversation, Carmen pulled into his driveway, came up to us, and the first thing she told us was that she's been looking for a church. She told us that she had gone home for the night, but for some reason, Jaime had texted her and told her to come back. She didn't know why, but she acted. I know that as we act in faith, blessings will come into our lives and we will be changed and blessed by the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

As a mission, we've really been focusing on what we learned from Elder Holland's visit: How we can have progression through spiritual power, loving our mission, and having a true sense of urgency about the work. As I think about it, these all fall under serving with all of your heart, might, mind, and strength. I know as we strive and do all we can to become true disciples of Jesus Christ, we will be enabled to reach our potential.

I know that it's almost natural for us in life to feel as is we are surrounded by a mist of darkness. But what I've seen and learned in my short time is that God's light is literal and full of hope. As we seek to grow it and integrate it into out lives, we will feel the peace and true happiness that comes from out Heavenly Father, who loves us more than we can ever begin to understand. And that love enables us to push through trials in life.

I hope you all have an amazing week! Thank you for everything! Love you!!

Elder Murphy
