¡Hola mi familia y mis amigos!
When you're in Rochester, of course you have to make an
Shadow selfie :)
Los Lopez went to Greece and they brought us
"We were kind of matching, so of course we had to take a picture."
Sister Luk!! We had such a fun time together on our exchange.
This week we had so many lessons cancel on us hahah but of course it ended up being for a reason. We ended up finding a bunch of new investigators to teach. We were able to teach people in the most random places such as the Library. I love seeing all of the little miracles that god puts in our path so that His will ends up happening perfectly.
Los Hermosillo!!!! Love them tons
Jesus!!! SO HE'S DOING SO GREAT!!!! We met with him two times last week. At the end of the first lesson we had with him this week, he said a prayer and in it he promised that he wouldn't smoke anymore. Then on Saturday he told us that he hadn't smoked for two whole
days!!! We had a super great lesson with him where we read the scriptures and each thought of a question. At the end, Jesus told us his question "why do round peaches come in square boxes?" Hahaha. He was just joking and had a serious question about Christ though. He also was able to go to church but he went to the YSA branch with a member that came to a lesson with us! We may end up having to pass Jesus off to the Elders over YSA, but we are going to figure that out this week. It's been amazing to teach Jesus and see his love for the savior just grow stronger and stronger. He really is changing is life to be closer to the Savior. It's so awesome!
I was studying and I found this amazing quote by President Gordon B. Hinckley about happiness. It says, "Do you want to be happy? Forget yourself and get lost in this great cause. Lend your efforts to helping people. Cultivate a spirit of forgiveness in your heart against any who might have offended you. Look to the Lord and live and work to lift and serve His sons and daughters. You will come to know a happiness that you have never known before if you will do that. I do not care how old you are, how young you are, whatever. You can lift people and help them. Heaven knows there are so very, very, very many people in this world who need help. Oh, so very, very many. Let’s get the cankering, selfish attitude out of our lives, my brothers and sisters, and stand a little taller and reach a little higher in the service of others. … Stand taller, stand higher, lift those with feeble knees, hold up the arms of those that hang down. Live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Forget yourself."
I know that real happiness comes when we are living the gospel of Jesus Christ and really following His example. We can do so in soooo many ways. I've seen this time and time again, when I forget about myself and do the Lord's work, I am just so much happier. I love this gospel
and I know it brings happiness!
Have a great happy week!! God and Jesus Christ love you all so much. I do too!
Con MUCHO amor,
