This was definitely a rough but gratifying. We had the baptism of Jaky the daughter and sister of Nataly and Antoña two people we had the opportunity to baptize a couple of weeks ago. It was such an incredible journey and an incredible baptism. There was such a strong Spirit, especially when the Hermana Antoña and Nataly got up and bore their testimony, so sweet and pure!
This last week in the zone that we are part of, we opened up 2 new áreas and had some changes. We started off our week with a meeting like how we do every week. It was great, we picked at Alma 17 when the Sons of Mosiah and Alma see each other again and get back to work and convert thousands of people. We Applied it to ourselves and got really pumped, we started the change with a zone fast (that being one of the things that they did in this part of the Book of Mormón) We have seen so many miracles lately and we knew we were headed for even more!... but, so did someone else, Satan. The influences of him this last week were very apparent, in him trying to bring us down in the whole zone and trying to stop us from blessing and changing lives for the eternities. He did not succeed there is no doubt about that. We kept pushing through and came out okay. But he did give us a run for our money with a lot of fallen appointments, many missionaries in our zone became sick, a lot of hardened hearts in contacting, and chosen people doubting the truth. But the score is on the score board, we all know who is going to win and it is our Heavenly Father. But one still has to choose through the choices he makes what team he wants to be on. Our Heavenly Father lives, and As well as he lives, so does Satan. He also knows us, and in reflecting in this last week, he too recognizes that these are the last minutes in the game, and he knows he is losing and so he will take as many of us with him as he can. He is working double time, and doesn't take breaks or have a day off.
With that being said, we have to be on top of our game, doing the best we can every day to become more and more like our Brother and Savior Jesús Christ, so that we can arrive to our Heavenly Father and be accepted into the Kingdom of the All Mighty with our families forever. We need to live like Enos after his repentance and look forward to the day we will see our Redeemer. And through that we will be happier in this life than we can imagine, it doesn't mean there will be no trails, but we will be able to get through them along side Him, with our head up.
Love you ALL
