D+C 123:12-13

"For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties and denominations...who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things [out] of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--these should then be attended to with great earnestness."

Hey everyone!   So I`m pretty lame, I haven`t written in a while!!  But, we got the news for changes, I`m leaving Minas! But I`m going back to La Costa in Montevideo where I was before Minas!!!   I`m so excited, I LOVED La Costa, the members are BOSSES, and we`re are going to see so many miracles!  I`m pretty bummed that I won`t be here for the baptism of the Flia Garrido, BUT, as long as they can get baptized and go to the temple, It will all be alright.    They are REALLY progressing!!! We`ve had a charla with them almost everyday this week, and we`ve been able to go with a member every time. They feel so comfortable with the members and they love church! THEY CAME AGAIN!!!!   So everything has been going good- But we were alert for Satan´s obstacles, We knew that SOMETHING bad would happen, and we were praying to be prepared for that. Sure enough, we had a charla with them yesterday, and Daniela´s Mom was over the other night, and found out that they are taking the charlas. She got so mad at Daniela, and even the kids were in on it with their grandma. At the beginning of the charla, Daniela started to ball, and just told us everything, and that she felt so hurt and didn`t know if she could go on. We have no idea what to do, so we just listened and prayed to know what to do!!   She told us that she was at the point to leave it all. She was going to stop going to church, not get married, not get baptized. But she remembered the spirit that she`s felt, and she told us that she KNEW that there was something different with us. She prayed to know if she should keep going, and that god would show her what to do in the Book of Mormon. She grabbed the Book of Mormon, and the FIRST verse she read was about the Jaredites, and the wars and hardships that they had within their own family, BUT That even through that, they could not deny the truth that the prophets had left them. They KNEW it was true. So, she GOT HER ANSWER!! She knows that the Book of Mormon is true, and now there is NOTHING that can stop her!   It was the COOLEST charla I`ve been in, and the spirit REALLY directed to help them see that opposition will come, and that it`s OK to have struggles in the family, but that we have to forgive and know where to put that anger. They are seeing first hand the blessings of the Lord!!!    AHHHH I`m really going to miss them!!      Keep them in your prayers!!!

I know that this church is true. The Savior will come again, and we are SO close to that day. If we will be prepared for that great day depends on each one of us. Today is the day to start living the Gospel!!!   I love you guys, have an awesome week!!!
