me encanta (I love) CHILE. Chile Cantiago Oeste is the best mission on the west. Yeah, Cole you can have the east ;) Well, I want to give a shout out to my baby Rae (Carsyn) and Trey bug! I can't believe you two are 12!! WOW...Trey gets the Aaronic priesthood so he can pass the sacrament and Carsyn is in YW. I feel old!!!
so, Saturday we went over to check with Javiera to see if she was going attend church with us and we passed by while Cesar's mom was there (Cesar's the boyfriend/partner of Javiera's mom). AND it just so happens that his mom is listening to missionaries in Rancagua. whatttt?! Neither one knew the other was investigating the church. What are the odds? God works in so many ways. It turns out they both started meeting with missionaries at the SAME TIME, such a testimony builder for me. We really do not know what the lord is doing with others that may cross our path. Agh, I love it! I know it reassured Javiera and her mom, Carla, that what they are doing is good. They all testified of what they know and it was so awesome!!! God is awesome
Then, just before we were about to start sacrament meeting, in walked Ana, José and Fernando...my mouth about dropped to the floor. *a family we contacted into and they let us in. They really enjoyed testimony meeting. Pancho even got up and bore his testimony that he knows this church is true and families can be eternal. Power. We stopped by last night to see how they were doing and José shared his experience of the morning where he felt the holy ghost within his chest telling him to go to church and he acted, so awesome. Testimony. Yesterday was so great, our asistencia (attendance) en church was greater then ever before! la capilla estaba LLENA!!! (the chapel was filled) tan bakán
Chris and Carsyn, I have a challenge for you... ready? I want you both to read the book of mormon before Cole and I get home. Don´t worry, you still have a solid 8 months so let's get going! :)
This work is so urgent, there are brothers and sisters lost, we must bring them to christ
be at church EVERY sunday! pray and fast for those people who are lost and need to find the way
We are the Lord´s soldiers fighting the battle between good and evil...we MUST win.
this is something i learned this week:
some of satan's angels were discussing how to destroy the people on earth and they were thinking of all of the ways to tell us the gospel is not true and lead us away...then one spoke up and said "wait let's teach them that it IS true but to do something about it tomorrow.... we cannot put off our repentance, we need to keep the commandments and live the gospel RIGHT NOW!
