November 18, 2016

Hey! This week was great! We had a ton of fun and have been working really hard! It feels good at night to go to bed exhausted! We have been able to see many miracles this week and it feels good to have the spirit! 

We are teaching a great family of 7! They are so great and are progressing very well but just haven’t made it to church yet! They are feeling the Holy Ghost and are receiving answers to prayers but just are scared to go to church because of experiences in past churches. We will continue w
ith them and they will be getting baptized in NovemberJ We also have a baptism for the 30th so that will be fun!

In the mission I have learned so much about the incredible atoning sacrifice of our savior Jesus Christ. I have learned so much about it by experimenting it. Faith, Repentance, Baptism (Partake of the Sacrament), and Endure to the end. The doctrine of Christ is amazing. It is simple as we take a look at it on the outside, but as we start internalizing it and living it, it becomes personal and becomes something so much more meaningful.  It is the way to access the power of the Atonement. I have also learned in the mission what it really means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. For Christ to know us it was necessary for Him to have to suffer. For us in a very symbolic way to be able to know Him, we must suffer also. “All roads to salvation must pass through the Garden of Gethsemane.” –Elder Jeffrey R. Holland 

It’s okay to go through hard times every once in a while:) It’s okay to suffer a little as my mission President is always saying! Ha I love the mission! I have taken upon me the yoke of Christ and I am learning of Him with every step of the way! 
Have a great week!
