FIRST OFF, SHOUT OUT TO DOCTOR DUNNE, mi padre!!! Happy birthday as of three days agooooooo! LOVE YOU TONS.
Hope youre all having a reeeally superb day! Today i went bowling. Just me and Hna Alva because it’s her last pday ever in the mission and she had never gone bowling before so THAT was the most precious thing EVER!
Really this week was just super stressful. Lots of meetings and divisions and I don’t know if the world shrunk this week, or if i grew, but i hit my head about three times daily. Added to my headache but it’s whatever.
It rained all week. All of my shoes are wet. All of my jackets are wet. I think my clothes are getting really old. My shoes are even worse. Seriously the only shoes that have lasted me this long are my Mary Jane Doc Martins. Best investment ever.
OH SHOOT! Totally forgot to tell you all a story last week. So we had our district meeting, left and went to the mamita to eat! we were super happy, ya know….eating happily and all….then BOOM the zone leaders called me and told me that two sisters in our zone GOT SEPARATED. Missionaries should NEVER be separated. One had gotten off the bus and the other didn’t. One ran to the house and I called her so I could meet up with her and look for her companion. Buuuuuut it wasn’t as crazy as i thought it would be. As we were pulling up to the apartment complex, her companion was running to her to hug her. Precious moment…precious moment. hahahhaha it was an interesting experience.
Welp, all i really have to say this week is that obedience is the most precious gift we can have in our lives. When we are obedient, we receive SO MANY BLESSINGS. There is at least one blessing for every commandment we keep, and even more come as we live Christ’s gospel. There is a scripture in Alma 50:22 that talks about this… “And those who were FAITHFUL in keeping the commandments of the Lord were DELIVERED AT ALL TIMES.”
Think about how great that blessing is. If we are just faithful to God and the commandments He has given us, He delivers us from temptations, danger, sorrow, grief, and spiritual death. He loves us so much.It doesn’t matter what you have done in the past if you have repented. But that is the key. When you repent, you are promising God that you won’t commit that sin again. Do not fall back into past sins. Avoid all temptations or situations that could lead you to commit that sin again, and push forward.
In the wise words of our beloved prophet, Thomas S. Monson, “DECISIONS DETERMINE DESTINY.”
Choose wisely. Your friends. Your movies. Your music. Your education. Your hobbies. What you do with your time. Your words. Your thoughts. The way you treat others. Your way of living. Choose wisely. Choose the right.
“Consider your ways”-Haggai 1:7
I love you all and hope you have a super great week. Email me stories about your conversion to this gospel. I’d love to hear about it. 🙂 Love,
