First off... happy belated birthday to my best friend Molly!!!!!!
Hola! its now June... woah... Summer time, crazy. I hope all of you are weel and have some fun summer plans, like writing me ;)... haha but really i hope camping, swimming, smores are all parts of some of your plans.
This last week we met the new mission president and his wife. Hes very adventourous (sorry i cant spelly).. He's 6'5'', likes to surf, climb mountains, and competitively bike race. His wife is a little more mellow and likes to read, cook and teach piano. He served a mission in spain and they have both served a mission in france i beleive? theyre origianlly from san diego california.
This last week was our first full week as a new companionship. were still trying to get things down with teaching and what not but its going good. we had some cool lessons this week but like none of them showed up for church...
EXCEPT Josefina!.. who is a less active who was baptized about 40 years ago. and from what i understand hasnt been very active. but we visited her this alst friday and she came to church on sunday which i wasnt expecting because i had visited her before with hermana priesler and she didnt seem like she wanted to come back. but she came to church and i hope she keeps coming!
we didnt have any investigators at church because carmen was sick and the others just didnt show. :(
CHURCH ATTENDANCE... thats how we progress. Howevers its not just going to church. We're not just "sunday mormons"... Sunday is a day of rest, a day to be edified, to be "sprititually rechared"a day to renew our baptismal coventant to start again in the comping week. we live the standards always, all throught the week and then come sunday we recharge and try again the coming week.
Church isnt a hobby, it should be who you are... not just what you do on Sunday, but always... always lviing the Gospel. The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is the same church that Christ established when He was here. It jas all the parts of Christ's church because it is His church. I know it was restored by Joseph Smith and that the Book of Mormon is true.
the Restoration of the church weighs so heavy on the Book of Momron because if its not true Jospeh Smith wasnt a prophet and the church wasnt restored.
However I know the Book of Mormon is true. I want you to read it. and if you have read it.. read it again... Pray sincerely to God, our Father in Heaven if its true because you CAN and WILL receive an answer wther its true or its not. You have nothing to lose, but so much to gain.
God loves you. I love you. You are a child of God and He wants you to be happy. I know that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through living it we can be happy, receive strength we need the hope the comfort, all of our needs.
i know this is Christs church. i know it is. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
con mucho amor,
