Hello loved ones!!!!! This week was another wonderful and full and great week. This week we saw many miracles. We threw a Halloween party and it was DOPE. A ton of people went and it turned out great. Which is a miracle because holy cow we did not realize that we do not know how to plan a Halloween party hahahha BUT thankfully, it finished well with the help from the members and Heavenly Father. I’ll send a few pics lol
So this actividade took up a lot of our time this week, but Heavenly Father blessed us because of our sacrifice; we found a new family to teach! A member brought them to the activity and they loved it, and yesterday they went to church!!
Also, another HUGE MIRACLE, Filipe’s mom, (Filipe who is preparing to go on a mission) is an eternal investigator of about 10 years, going to church faithfully and wanting to be baptized. But, she was never baptized because she is a widow and she receives money from her late husband’s work, but she is now living with another man for almost 20 years, they are basically married just not officially because they thought they would lose the money from her other husband’s work if they got married, and they need that money. BUUUTTTTTT THANK HEAVENS my mission president is a lawyer, and he told us a number to call to ask if she truly loses it or not, because apparently the law about this moved recently, I don’t know it’s complicated, but ANYWAYS WE CALLED AND IT TURNED OUT SHE DOESN’T LOSE IT AND SO THEY CAN GET MARRIED AND WE ARE SOOOO HAPPY buuuutttttttt Satan is annoying still and is still placing obstacles in their path so that she can get married. But it will all work out, pray for her, and Heavenly Father will do His part, this I know.
This week I had a very special experience at church yesterday. Yesterday was our Stake Conference, and the missionaries sang in the choir, so we had to sit in the front, long story short, I sat basically right next to the pulpit, and so when the talkers gave their talk, I had to turn my head backwards and anyways it a super uncomfortable two hours for me haha BUT I prayed and asked Heavenly Father that He could let me have a sacred experience and He gave it to me. Every single talk touched my heart profoundly, I don’t even remember what was said, but the Spirit brought to my spirit something heavenly in every single talk, and finally I learned the importance of our worship. I read a talk from the November 2016 conference from Bishop Dean M. Davies, “The Blessings of Worship” and it also touched my heart profoundly.
When was the last time that, in a normal church meeting, you felt that you were truly worshipping Heavenly Father and our Savior? When was the last time that you felt “a sense of majestic awe and profound thanksgiving”?
“When we worship in spirit, we invite light and truth into our souls.”
We create substance to our souls; the more we lose ourselves in worship to our God (which doesn’t only mean on Sunday at church, but also how we show our adoration to Him in every thought and word and deed), the more substance is added to our souls, and the more substance that is added to our souls, the more we can find ourselves, because there will be more of us to find!
So how do worship God, lose ourselves in this worship, and subsequently find ourselves with added substance to our souls?
“We approach Him with incomprehensible feelings of wonder and awe. We marvel in gratitude at the goodness of God. We ponder God’s word, and that fills our soul with light and truth. We comprehend spiritual vistas that can be seen only through the light of the Holy Ghost. As we worship, our souls are refined… our hearts are drawn out in praise to our blessed God… we hallow and honor Him continually.. we open our hearts to the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ… Our lives become the token and expression of our worship.”
I humbly testify of this; so much light and pure love and hope and faith has entered in my life and has become part of my soul as I have searched to lose my life in worship to my God. He is so good, gente. I love Him very much. I know that He is real, that He loves us, and that He is merciful.
I love you all!!!!!!! Have a wonderful week!!!
