25 July 2016 - Liberal, Kansas

Hola hola everyone!
Espero que todo ha estado super bien con ustedes!

Sorry it's been so long! Time just seems to fly by! Things in Liberal have been amazing! I'm learning so so much from Elder McCarney and miracles are happening every single day. Truly, this is the Lord's work. There's no way it couldn't be! His hand is in every detail of His work and we are only instruments called to allow Him to work through us!

This week was really amazing. So many miracles! We got a referral from the Hugoton Elders to visit a guy, Nathan, who'd come to church the week before in Hugoton, but lived in Liberal. We met him on Thursday, and he is so awesome! He's been talking to all of his friends about the Church and as he's done so, it's almost like there's a new person we're teaching every time we go over there. So ready and prepared for the Gospel. Such a crazy miracle. I feel as Ammon did when he said, "I cannot say the smallest part which I feel." (Alma 26:16) The Lord's hand is in every detail of His work. 

Yesterday, we stopped by a couple, Emma and Eduardo, who hadn't been really progressing, but we'd felt we needed to stop by after not seeing them for a little over a week. We walked in and there was a completely different spirit and light in their home. We'd just gotten there from a pretty big dinner and they asked us, "do you guys want to eat something?" Haha we told them we'd just eaten and they gave us a blank stare and said, "Come on, we're eating!" Pretty funny! As we were talking, over some tacos de carnitas, they began talking about how they'd begun to feel as they'd prayed and as we'd gone by. We testified of the Restoration and following Christ's example and they accepted baptism! They're such an amazing family! 

There's a quote I've been thinking of a lot lately by Hartman Rector Jr. that says, "When the Lord said, 'lengthen your stride, quicken your pace, heighten your reach, widen your vision, and stretch your capacity,' He was in reality saying, 'expect a miracle,' for these are the stuff from which miracles are made." Truly, as we stretch, rely on the Lord, and do everything we can plus more through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can see miracles every day of our lives. 

Yo se que el Senor nos guia en cada momento de nuestras vidas. El nos fortalece y nos protege por los desafios y las pruebas de fe que tenemos. Su amor para nosotros es perfecto y sin barreras. Yo se que vive nuestro Senor!!

Love you all mucho! Have an amazing week!

Con amor, 
Elder Murphy
