It's been a minute, hasn't it?
What an amazingly crazy past few weeks! Definitely the best of my mission, because of the stretching, because of the miracles, because of these people, because of the Savior. I don't have a ton of time to email today, since it's like a half P Day, because we're going to the temple :) Wahoo!! I'm pumped!
Miguel and Juanita are doing fantastic! Miguel is so pumped for his Bautismo this weekend and they've been reading the Book of Mormon together every night! It's amazing to be able to see the Gospel change and strengthen someone's life. A light truly fills the home and theireyes. And it reminds me each and every day of what it means to be a representative of Christ and why. It fuels the burning desire to see the salvation of the human soul as we see the vision we and the Lord have for these investigators fulfilled.
We met this guy, Eric, on his porch . Since he was 13, he's been relying wholly and completely on himself for everything. We asked him about his belief in Jesus Christ and God and he said he'd never really had time. He didn't need help to do it. We boldly testified of the Gospel and centered Christ on everything we said (as we should) and it's almost like you could see gears click and turn in his mind, heart, and spirit. The Spirit was so strong. He said he'd come to church, but we had no way of contacting him to know if he'd come. Sure enough, as we do everything in our power and more through the Atonement, the Lord provides a miracle and he came to church and loved it! So amazing! There's no need to rely on ourselves at all; the Lord is in charge and he's got the reins!
I love every second of this sacred opportunity I have to serve in La Mera Frontera in Dodge City! Truly miracles await us every single day as we go out, expecting them with faith in the Lord! Sé que Él nos guía y nos fortalece cada día para hacer Su voluntad y ver milagros.Esta es Su obra, y somos llamados para proclamar la luz de Jesucristo. Él tiene un plan perfecto por cada uno de nosotros.
Have the best week! Love you all mucho!:)
