its getting hotter and hotter. Im a little nervous because ill be leaving soon and up here in the north is where its the coolest so going down to barcelona or even valencia would just kill. so we shall see.
But this past week was great. We met with some great people and one lady that we have been teaching as read about 450 pages of the book of mormon in a week. She is absolutely incredible and wants to know if this book is true. She has a ton of doubts and questions but with the way that she is reading and praying there is no doubt in my mind that she we will find her answer. her name is linda and she is from colombia.
We also had interviews wit President yesterday and for that reason we are having our preparation day today. But I love President Pace, he is unreal. Just such a spiritual man and knows how to help in everyway. We were talking for a while to help someone who has so many doubts, and he told me that no matter how many doubts we can have, it all comes down to one question, Is Jesus Christ the head of this Church. because if he is, Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the church and reveal modern revelation for us. So when we talk about peoples doubts, we need to help them resolve them of course but also help them see the deeper doubt and question. And that just makes so much sense. because we are all going to have doubts and concerns one way or another. But really for anyone investigating the church or wanting to strengthen their testimony in a little principle of the gospel, thats the question we need to keep asking and pondering. Is Jesus Christ himself leading this Church?
Me and Elder Cox are doing great. He works really hard and loves to relaz and have funs as well. He is a super tranquilo guy an I love him, and yesterday we were walking around super tired from traveling and not having much just talking to people. I was tired and almost falling alseep and he was like ok cmon we are going for ice cream, and we went and got some ice cream and just chilled for a minute. We talked about the work and how muhc we loved it but how it was hard and how we could do better. we talked about ow we have changed on the mission and it was just super nice. i just wanted to throw that in here because last night it helped me a lot to just take a second and chill and think about things. so many times as missionaries we are always just go go go, talk talk talk and its exhausting and we can forget why we are doing it. But if it was the delicious ice cream or the my kind companion im sure it was a mixture of the two that helped me just calm down for a moment, and see the good in it all and get back and focused. I loved that.
I know this true. I know that what im doing is special and is important to people and to God. I know that he knows us and loves us. And we are his children and he wants us to be happy. I really do know thise things because i have seen the love of god enter into peoples lives that never believed. I have seen the happiness that comes across their faces as they understand the Plan of Salvation. And because of their happiness I am happy and understand more clearly the role of the Savior and his gospel.
I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!!
