Well... here we are in another week!! It feels like the time is flying. Are we really half way through November? I am looking at a bright sunny day here in Honduras, so it is hard for me to imagine that everyone is preparing to eat a big turkey dinner. I still feel like we are in the middle of June :)
On other exciting news this past week I hit my one year mark IN HONDURAS. So yes. I am officially a Honduranian now :D
So this week we had a few great things that happened.
28 And now behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all; for after ye have done all these things, if ye turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, ifye have, to those who stand in need—I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, behold, your prayer is vain, and availeth you nothing, and ye are as hypocrites who do deny the faith.
and both had the same impression to help them. I am so grateful that God works in marvelous ways to help others, and helps us find ways to help others.
So yes, these are a few of the miracles that happened this week. Little by little we come closer to God and help his children.
I know the church is true. I know God lives and loves his children, and I also know that missionary work is one of the most important work in the entire world!! God's work and his glory, is to bring to pass the immortatly and eternal life of man, and we start by opening our mouths and sharing the gospel. We are coming closer to Christmas, and Christmas is a wonderful time to open our mouths! People's hearts are a little softer and they are thinking more about Christ. As an idea, you could invite some friends or neighbors over for a family home evening about Christmas and about Christ, and invite the missionaries too! Or even for thanksgiving, to talk about giving thanks in all things. The holiday season is a great time to share the gospel!
To end, I just want to share the last vew verses of Alma 34
37 And now, my beloved brethren, I desire that ye should remember these things, and that ye should work out your salvation with fear before God, and that ye should no more deny the coming of Christ;
38 That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and intruth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.
39 Yea, and I also exhort you, my brethren, that ye be watchful unto prayer continually, that ye may not be led away by the temptations of the devil, that he may not overpower you, that ye may not become his subjects at the last day;for behold, he rewardeth you no good thing.
40 And now my beloved brethren, I would exhort you to have patience, and that ye bear with all manner of afflictions; that ye do not revile against those who do cast you out because of your exceeding poverty, lest ye become sinners likeunto them;
41 But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!! HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
