A Bajo el Sol (Under the Sun)

Okay Brothers and Sisters, well I’m very grateful that last week I was able to speak with my family and see there beautiful faces as well as know that they are doing their best. I apologize for not writing last week, but I was short on time and wasn’t able to. To give a rundown of the week. The Branch President here has asked that we help on finding those less active members through ropes. So basically we with a list of over 300 people looked for these people this week. We found a very few number. But we had an awesome experience with one, but that’s for later. We also had a few lessons with investigators, but at the end of the week we couldn’t find them in their houses or they didn’t have time. It was a difficult just a little bit this week with all the walking and the frustration of not finding people, but the reward came at the end of the week when we found a new family through this list and there are looking so promising to progress in the gospel. My companion and i are excited for this week because tomorrow we get to hear Elder Bednard speak with us and share a message of preaching the gospel.

Well the message is something short this week, but it is something that really is important in the lives of each and every one of us. Our agency. When I say this Word it is our ability to choose between the good things and bad things in our personal worlds. That which helps me permanently and that which helps me temporarily. This week in The Book of Mormon I was Reading the in book of Heleman when the prophet Samuel the Laminate is speaking and prophesying about the coming of Christ. I’m sorry I don’t remember which chapter, but in two verses he describes our agency and ability to choose perfectly. He basically says that we are the makers of what we want in life. Everlasting happiness with God at our side, or everlasting sadness and misery with the Devil at our side. It really made me think that it’s clear that every choice we make can bring us closer or farther away from God. I know from personal experience that when we use our agency in the way that God gave to us to come to know him and his son Jesus Christ that we really with have happiness and joy, but if we do the contrary that we really do suffer and life is full of temporary happiness. I know that God loves us and that we can show our love for him through our decisions and the desire of our heart to be with him, and he in return with show us his love and give us more of his blessing. I share this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
God Be With You Till We Meet Again
Well Both Be Underneath the Same Moon
