Was a crazy week that we just came out of, but great non the less! Full of conferences and new things happening.
Two weeks ago we prepared and baptized a girl named Irene that we are helping her Mom who is inactive come back to the church. It has been a good experience, seeing her being baptized and her mom getting back into the Góspel. We got a call last Monday saying that her older sister had made the decision to get baptized as well. So we prepared her; she [Yunueth] was baptized last Saturday. She is a really Smart girl and it has been a great experience preparing her.
During the conference our President spoke a lot about the relationship between faith and obedience. We talked a lot about how it explains that we do not have a testimony of things or don't see miracles until AFTER our trail of faith. Our trial of faith here is to be obedient and to follow the rules and to have exact obedience, and only through that is the way that we will see blessings and miracles, and see what our President said that; then the heavens will open and God will rain blessings down upon us. I know it is like that in our lives. Even though it is hard and we don't understand things, we keep moving forward, and its like what Elder Richard G. Scott talks about in one of my favorite talks"trust in the Lord" When we don't know what's going on, its our way of being obedient and keep going forward telling the Lord you don't understand everything, but he does and you will be faithful is one of the greatest ways to exercise faith.
We have been SO blessed in our área here through the act of obedience. We are not perfect, but when we are giving it our best Jesús Christ and the Spirit make up the rest. And when we mess up he wants us to come back and get back on track. I love the scripture in D and C 3 verse 10, Heavenly Father is merciful and loves us more than we could ever imagine. He is our Father.
Love you all,
Baptism of Irene
