14 December 2015 -- Wichita -- Kellogg Spanish Branch

Hola hola!! ¿Como les va a todos?
Let's see...

So, Monday, we saw a huge miracle! We stopped by a potential's house, named Elvia. They opened the door and said they were moving a fridge and needed a hand. What better time for the missionaries to show up? We helped and after, talked about a ton of questions they'd had from the last time we saw Elvia. She knew she felt the Spirit the first time we met and testified of faith in Christ helping us overcome trials, and she wanted to know more. We talked a lot about how the Book of Mormon answers the questions we have and we talked more about how to act in faith on what we learn from the Book of Mormon and change and overcome trials. Such a huge miracle!

We got a referral from the Hermanas this week, Andreas. He's super cool and as a teenager in this crazy world, he has a desire to follow Jesus Christ. He truly is such an example of what Alma meant, when he said, "if ye can have no more than a desire." Andreas has a desire, and as he allows that desire to work within him to grow his mustard seed of faith, he is seeing a change in his life, as well as others'. He came to a baptism the Hermanas had on Saturday and brought up after how nervous the girls who were baptized had been before, but after, couldn't stop smiling and were giddy with joy. He expressed how much he wants that for himself. 

We've been talking a lot as a mission about serving with ALL of our heart, might, mind, and strength in order to become swallowed up in Heavenly Father's will to see more miracles. Doctrine and Covenants 123:13 says, "Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven." Truly as we "waste and wear out our lives" in this wonderful work, lives change. Our own lives change, more importantly. As we lose ourselves, we find our true selves and are able to reach the potential the Lord has in store for us.

Yo se con todo mi Corazon que Jesucristo vive. Nuestro amoroso Padre Celestial nos da mandamientos para que podemos ser mas felices en esta vida, personalmente y con nuestras familias.

Have an amazing week! I love you all!

Como siempre,
Elder Murphy
