Hey family! sounds like everyone had a great week! on valentines day we were walking down the street and saw everyone looking up at the sky and so we looked up and there was a rainbow in a complete and perfect circle around the sun. i literally have never seen anything so cool in my entire life. it is definitely a once in a lifetime kind of thing. i wish i would have had my camera!
Yesterday i spoke in stake conference and it actually went really well. i spoke about missionary work and how we can learn from the examples of the people in the book of mormon. i used examples from alma chapter 26 about ammon and his brothers who are preaching the gospel to the lamenites. if you havent read this chapter i encourage you to read it because its a super powerful chapter about the joy of bring souls unto christ even in times of tribulation.
Things are going good here in libertadores. our tarde blaca is on saturday and im so excited! we finally got permission from yairs family so we now have 3 people who will be baptised this day! its amazing what the lord can do if we trust him.
This week in my personal study i came across a story that i absolutely love and want to share it with you all. its in moses chapter 1 in the pearl of great price. in this chapter moses is transfigured and is talking to god. and three times god refers to moses as ¨´my son¨. and then god leaves and satan appears to moses and says ¨´moses, son of man, worship me.¨´ and i love what happens next. moses says to satan, ¨who art thou? for behold i am a son of god.¨´ this is so powerful because there are so many times when satan tells us that we are nothing. that we are only sons of man and nothing more. but we know that we are sons and daughters of god!!
i love you all and hope you have a great week!
until next week...
