mexico is the promised land (it's in the Book of Mormon)

Mis Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas,

Me siento feliz a escribir les y decir les sobre la gran obra del Señor. I am so glad to be a missionary and to be working here in this very small town full of love and people to begin teaching. In my area in Ojocaliente the truth is it is very Catholic and the evidence is the giant cathedral in the garden or center of town, as well as the various Virgin Mary’s in the streets to worship. All this though still doesn’t stop us from working and finding those to teach. We don’t have very many investigators, but we have a family that we are working with right now, and guess what, they lived in Placentia! It was awesome to hear that and to know that it’s a small world. I’m still teaching English and more people are coming which is great, but it’s also good because I’m beginning to forget how to speak English! All is good though because I can talk with the people according to their understanding. Our area is also very large and we walk about 12 Km a day I think maybe more. The work is getting better and better though with a lot more people in the chapel. We have an activity coming up this week also and it’s called a Mega Noche de Hogar (Home Evening) with the ward, but for investigators. We’re hoping many will come. The theme is the Plan of Salvation and we are giving the message. I don’t have too much else to say, but that I hope as members of the Church of Jesus Christ we are standing as witnesses of him in all times and in all things and in all places.

So this week I have been thinking a lot about the importance of looking for revelation and guidance. I came to the conclusion that the best way possible to do so is through study, prayer, and pondering, but with a sincere intent to learn and apply the revelation to our lives immediately. I love this idea, because it is repeated in The Book of Mormon over and over again that if we seek it we shall find it. Nephi says that through diligent study and pray the mysteries of God can be unfolded unto us. How great a knowledge that if we look intently that God will make himself manifest unto us. If we truly desire to know God will reveal it unto us in his time, as we lose our lives for his cause. As the Savior promised, If a man should go looking for his life he shall lose it, but if a man loseth his life for my sake he shall find it. So lose yourself in seeking the Lords Will and Revelation for yourself.
