My dear family & friends,
This week has been a week of faith-testing & faith-building! Even
though a lot of our appointments are falling through, we still
continue to love our YSA ;) Our baptism has to be postponed because
Richard says he needs a little more time. This week I've had to
continue to keep going with the faith that things will get better. I
know this is the Lord's work, and things will happen in His time. I
trust in His promises! When things are starting to feel overwhelming
for me, I try to remember: "wherefore, dispute not because ye see not,
for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith." I know
that as we continue to be obedient and put our all of our heart into
the work, miracles will occur here.
Palo Alto is slowly growing as we are working with members. We are
working with A LOT of less-actives right now. I've been able to have
the privilege of even teaching and helping some of them come back to
church! The members are truly incredible! We are hoping as we
continue to be obedient and give our absolute all into this area, that
we will find more and more and more people to teach.
My companion Sister Stenquist is absolutely incredible. We are
learning to work very well together. She is an incredible example of a
leader to me; I look up to her very highly. I can tell she has such a
rock solid testimony! We also have so much fun together; I've been
blessed to have such incredible companions thus far.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on
the earth today. I know the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ is
infinite. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. Joseph Smith was a
prophet, and he translated this book by the Priesthood Power of God.
Heavenly Father's plan is perfect, and I love Him. I know that He
loves each of us beyond comprehension. He knows you, and loves you.
Never forget your identity as a child of God. We are so blessed!
Have the best week ever! Thank you for all your love and prayers. I
love and pray for you all as well.
Con mucho amor,
