Hey family! Just an update from little Martinez de la Torre. It's been raining every day and I enjoy itcompared to the eternity of heat that just passed by.
Elder Vega and I have been working super hard to change things around in our area and ward and things are changing for the better thankfully.
We have a bunch of little ranchos in our area. We went to find some referrals we had in some of them and they turned out amazing! We had 2 families in church this Sunday and they all loved conference! Such a blessing! Especially after such long trial and error.
I loved conference so much! The apostles and prophets explained everything with such simplicity and focused on what really matters: Christ (Acts 4:12 especially), the Book of Mormon, and the plan of Salvation! Three things that will bring peace to anyone's life! I especially enjoyed the talks of Elder Bednar, Elder Cook, and Elder Ballard and invite everyone to ponder, study and apply those talks in their lives. I know I will!
At the end of the week we had an amazingly beautiful baptismal service of Maria Elena! She's such a strong kid with an amazing determination to repent and become a better person. She is a pioneer for her family, who are now desirous of changing their lives also!
I love this work and I love being an instrument in the hands of the Lord in helping others draw towards Him! I testify that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way of finding lasting peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. What a blessing it is to hear how we can accomplish this from the inspired words and direction of living prophets and apostles! I am so blessed to be able to share this message everyday and I hope you all can too! Christ lives! He guides and directs the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints; He leads this church and I know and believe it!
One of the ranchos was in the middle of a jungle. Quite unbelievable.
It felt like it was a scene from a movie.
The baptism of Maria Elena!
