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!!!    

This week was really good, I got to give a talk in Sacrament meeting, that was fun!  We also saw some miracles-  We have an investigator named Silvana who has been an investigator for over a year. Her boyfriend has problems with drugs, and she has been trying to help him so that they can get married and baptized. But He does not want to change. So she finally said that she was done, and that she was going to move out.   The only problem was that she didn´t have a good enough job to pay for an apartment. SO, we fasted with her that she would be able to find a job and move.   We fasted on Wednesday, and on Thursday a job that she had applied for over 3 months ago called her and offered her a job!    It was so cool, and she now has a testimony of fasting! She is such a STRONG convert already, it´s incredible. It´s interesting to see how converted she´s become, compared to other people I´ve taught, because we teach the same things to everyone, but ONLY those that truly humble themselves, keep their committments are those that experience that mighty change of heart, and become santified and purified.    It´s true for us too, even if we´ve grown up in the church!

We also found a new investigator named Gonzalo, the husband of a less active lady who is also an RM. They are looking for the gospel, and told us that they want to have a refuge for their daughters in a world of confusion. We´re SUPER excited! I´ll keep you posted!

This week, I was studying Alma 22 about king lamoni´s dad, and Aaron, Ammon´s brother. When The king prayed and repented of his sins, with true intent, the spirit changed him 100%. When he woke up from his coma, he got up and imediatley started to minister to his people, and the whole house was converted to the Lord. I always thought that Aaron was such a stud for converting all those people, but I realized that is wasn´t Aaron, it was the king! He shared that gospel with his household. When we become CONVERTED to the gospel, we naturally want to Share it. That´s how we do missionary work, help one or two become converted so that they can go and convert MORE.      So, a really good indicador that you are converted or not is your desire to share the gospel. If you don´t have that desire, GET IT!!!!

I love you so much, Have a great week!!
