Can I just start off by saying how wonderful my family is… And my friends… And perhaps all the people in the world. Wow, people are so cool. I just love them!
I’m still learning a ton. I love the people I interact with here at the MTC. I especially love it when I am filled with the love of Christ. Because when I do I only feel goodness towards people. I am learning to be more humble with people. Sometimes they bug me when they seem to do selfish things. I selfishly do things sometimes too and it’s so dumb! But I love people.
Can I also say that I wish the best for everyone! It is so hard to see people suffer, sometimes for their own decisions and too many times because of other’s. The Gospel of Jesus Christ doesn’t change people!! People have to change. This life is all about agency and learning from it. Albedrío is what it’s called in spanish. It is hard to change. But the only way to feel Christ’s love is if we let him in. The Gospel of Jesus Christ only changes people who choose to change. They may feel it’s good affects, but cannot grasp its entirety until they try it out for themselves. With this mindset, it is so much easier to love people for how they can change and for what they can become. The only hard thing is to watch those that could have a much better life, suffer for their poor decisions. Deep down I feel like that is the only main hard thing in this life. God is so loving to give us the opportunity to learn to choose good. “He’s da beist!”
I don’t have very many exciting stories to tell yet, haha, the only thing that changes here at the MTC is yourself.
I can’t say much more in spanish than “muy bien!” when I’m asked “Como esta?” But I can tell you in spanish how God has prepared a way for us to live fulfilled, happy, lives with our loved ones. That’s pretty cool “in’t it!”
Loves to ya’ll! :D
