8 Junio, 2015

Well this week was a rather rough one in the mission because of the crazy elections in Mexico. Sounds like a despressing first line haha but that is what happened! It made it difficult to work, and almost nobody went to church due to the votings being on Sunday. 

We were able to get the baptisms from last week confirmed, and they are now members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is always a great Sunday when people are confirmed. Besides that, we moved houses on Sunday because our old one was super gross. Our new house has a washer, a super nice bathroom, a super nice backyard, a never ending hot water heater, and the owners (part member rich family) gave me a double sized new mattress. Blessings came really come in all forms. However, I am really glad for the new things because we will sleep better to focus us more on the work.

I forgot my scriptures in the house again this week (sorry), but I would like to talk about valuing the Gospel. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we are in the true church without a doubt, but sometimes we do not always show te respect that we have for what we have in the Gospel. In Church this week, I saw various people on their phones in Church doing who knows what instead of what we really need to focus on: Jesus Christ. Frankly before the mission I did not value the Sabbath Day as I should have, but we can all change and should. We know that we are in the true church, so we should also act like we are in the true church. We should think about the Lord every day, but we are only asked for one day in particular to dedicate to the Lord. Especially at church, we need to remember the reason why we partake of the Sacrament: To renew our baptismal convenant and remember the Lord. If we can make the Sabbath Day a special day, we will enjoy it more and more until it becomes the highlight of our week.

I love you all very much and hope you enjoy these pictures. Have a great week!
