This week has been amazing. I have grown a lot and I have been able to feel the Spirit of the Lord and His happiness and grace and mercy more in my life and it is the most exquisite feeling.
Something that impacted me a lot this week was reading the parable of the wheat and the tares in Matthew 13. The wheat represents righteousness and the tares represent evil/ satan’s traps and temptations. We must protect ourselves from the evil that slowly but surely soffocates our high moral standards, our joy in God and things of God, and most of all, the guide of the Holy Ghost.
OHHH HAHAHA so this week I made morrocho for breakfast. As I was eating, ants slowly started floating to the top. bhahahaha I WAS SO GROSSED OUT! We have an ant problem in the house. I guess they got into the sugar and I didn’t realize it…the good thing is that I was well nourished after that meal. Yes I finished it all.
This week our ward also had an activity and NO ONE PLANNED IT so we (there are 6 missionaries in our ward) had to wing it. It went decently well…but SHOOT it was awkward for everyone.
This week Craig C. Christiansen came and the zone leaders and sister training leaders from Quito were able to have a meeting with him!! It was very inspirational. I also had the priviledge of singing “I know that my Redeemer lives” with Hna Powley. She has an amaaazing voice. But, wow, i learned so much from him. What he said made me reflect a lot more on the Atonement and what it means for me. I have applied it more to my life by repenting more frequently and by striving to feel that true, limitless love for everyone i meet. It’s an incredible, uplifting feeling.
I have so much more to say but no time. I encourage all of you to take the time to study the Atonement in depth. See how you can apply it more to your life. Read the New Testament and 3Nephi chapters 11-28 and study Christ. Study His words, example, actions, attributes…everything He eminates…study it and do your best to reflect it in your behaviour, thoughts, words, and actions. It will truly elevate your spirit and you will feel one of the most refreshing, enlightening feelings.
I love Jesus Christ so much. He truly has saved my soul from all manner of danger and sorrow. He lives. He directs this church through a modern-´day prophet. He does all He can to help us return to both His and God’s presence. God micromanages everything for us here on this earth. Never doubt the presence of God. His hand is in your life more than you think. I know that is true, and i share it in the name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Have a great week,
