A Great and Marvellous Work


So this week not too much happened, but we did have a baptism yesterday! It was this lady who is about 70 years old and she is the sweetest ever! Holy cow. She has a depression of some sort and it has been amazing to see the change the gospel has made in her life. It was so cool cause earlier this week one of her grandsons was at her house when we were and we started talking to him and hes like yeah i can see such a change in my grandma, shes not as tired anymore and she is so much happier. And she never reads ANYTHING but everytime i come over to her house now she always has her glasses on and is reading that book. I cant get her to look up from it! It has been such a blessing to see the changes that Jesus Christ and his gospel can make in peoples lives! As she came out of the water all she had to say is "estoy contenta!" 

Now what her grandson said leads me to my next point, THE BOOK OF MORMON IS THE BEST! oh my gosh. Im pretty sure that every missionary would probably back me up on this that they wish they read it more before their mission just because its such a great book! Just thinking about it makes me so happy. There is such a spirit that comes from that book that is indescribable and you can indefinately feel God´s presence when you read it. I love the book of mormon!

And finally something that i realized (or probably rerealized) while cleaning our apartment and comes from Moses 1:39 where it says "this is my work and my glory, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of men." God´s work has always been the same, it missionary work! Bringing his children back to him! He wants us to be happy. He knows that we can be infinately and eternally happy if we return to him. The only way to do this is through faith, repentance, baptism, the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end! I am so happy to be working in the vineyard in the work of the lord. There are so many people prepared to hear. All i want in life is to see the people i love in the next life! "When you get to the celestial kingdom, its not about you but the people you bring with you!" 

Have a great week!
