So i did actually remember the 4th of July
I celebrated listening to patriotic Motab and wearing my American flag-ish tie. Cool Right?
But the best part of that was working with Boris. He is nine. But he wants to be a missionary now. He went with us visit some people this week. He is super awesome. His older brother just died and many people would be really sad because of such a loss. But he keeps on going. He told us that he knows that he will see his brother again and that when they are together in heaven his brother will be able to walk and play and it will be sweet(His brother had cerebral palsy) I love the way little kids explain things. It shows perfect faith and understanding that comes from the heart and is clouded by doubt or worries about this world. Pray for him and His family. They will be moving to San Luis Potosi soon and they need all the help they can get. Pray more especially for his mom, Marcela. She is an incredible woman but things are tough for her....
Speaking of prayer there was an article in the liahona from june...3 actually. Look them up becsause they are incredible. One is called Walking in circles by Dieter f. Uchtdorf. Another is Dear Are the Sheep that Have Wandered by James E. Faust. The third (and the one i have been trying to apply) is Improving Your Personal Prayers by Kevin W. Pearson. I suggest you read them and apply them to your lives.
I love revelation from modern day prophets. there is nothing better than knowing that God speaks directly to men today. I feel incredibly grateful to play a small role in the Lord´s most important work..... The Work of Salvation. I Know there is nothing more important than this work.
Anyway, we met Presidente Mejorada the other day. He is incredible. He has already helped me see that in many ways i can change and be a better servant of the Lord. Something important that he told us is that we have to have a life plan. Without a plan, we won´t know where we are going. Basically, he told us that we need to figure out what we want and what the Lord wants from us in the future. So i´m thinking about possible career choices when i get back. it won´t be easy but since when is following the Lord easy?
Andrea. Her parents don´t want to give her permission to be baptized. We pray for her parents to have a change of heart.
I love you all. remember the Saviour and what He has given us. Don´t ever be afraid to be bold in making changes to follow His perfect example. He loves you and will guide you. share the gospel always. don´t ever stop inviting people to come to activities, the church, to family home evenings, to whatever. Just invite them and be an example. I love you all and pray you are doing well.
