Well it was absolutely amazing to talk to you all yesterday. What a blessing!!!! So wonderful to see all your smiling faces and to hear your perfect voices! I’m excited to see CarsAnne next time. Hey…you family are EVERYTHING TO ME. Because God is the head of our family, we can experience this joy one with another, together, through anything in this life. All we do is keep looking UP! Just keep looking!! :D
I told you most everything that’s been going on. This week we have big plans to carry out. And they will carry out for the better so long as we let the Spirit be our guide and simply…work with humility! I’m far from perfect, and I’m working on that by letting the Holy Spirit be my guide!
1 The Elders
2 On the Collectivo again. I’m talking with Elder Bennett, a great Elder from Villa.
3 Sorry if you didn’t want to see this but, a dead cat!!!!!!!! I saw two the same day…you just see more of this type of thing here.
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
