Well, how´s it going?
We had another great week this week, full of exchanges, interviews, and we finished the week with a baptism and a confirmation. Our little buddy Josue got baptized and confirmed on Sunday, and is now a member of the Church! It was a good ceremony, and many members came. His Mom who is already a member was really excited, and happy to see the decision that he made. It was just a really good day.
It’s my last email as a missionary. I really don't know what to say. The past two years have changed my life, and I am so grateful that I could have served for this time. I guess one of the greatest lesson that I learned is that if we do what is right, and keep the commandments, we can be sure that the Lord will guide us and help us become the people he wants us to become. All we have to do is trust in him. Looking back on my mission, at the assignments I've been given, the companions that I've had, I can see the blessings and the changes that have come to my life for the better, even though at the time, I didn't understand why. As we put our trust in him, things won't always be easy, but we can know that there is a reason. We just need to be diligent in doing what is right in order to receive the promised blessings.
Thanks for all of the support, the letters, emails, and prayers. I appreciated them, and they have helped me throughout my time here in Argentina. I was blessed to have so many friends and family supporting me. So thanks for all that you´ve done.
I just want to share my testimony, That I know Christ lives. I know that his atonement is real because I have felt it in my life. I know that he loves us, more than we can imagine, that´s why he always calls for us to repent, be baptized, and change, so that we can be with him again someday. I know that Christ called Joseph Smith to be the first prophet of this modern time, and that the Priesthood or Authority of God was restored to him, in order for us to gain Salvation. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true testimony of Christ, because I have felt the spirit by reading its pages, and have been able to answer great questions that I have had by studying it. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true and living church on the earth today, and everyone is invited to partake of the blessings that come from baptism, and confirmation of the Holy Ghost. I have come to know these things for myself, and I have no doubt that they are true. I love being a missionary.
Have a great week, and see you all very soon.
