July 6, 2009

Well how the heck has everyone been. I hope good! I was really glad that you shared the experience of Brittany with me. I hope she is doing ok. When I read that she had had a miscarrage I started think about why we have trials here in this life. I remembered a scipture in 1st Corinthians 10:13 that says God won't test us above what we are able to bear. I know that sometimes we have trials in our lives and sometimes we don't think that we can endure to the End but the Lord is always there for us. I then remembered another scipture in Isaiah 55:8-9 that says our ways are not Gods ways and neither are our thoughts Gods thoughts. Sometimes we can't understand why hard things pass by in our lives. I don't think we are suppose to understand. We can't understand why God does the things he does but I do know that he loves us and will always be there in those hard times in our lives.I hope Brittany is doing ok and please let her know that she is in my prayers.
Well as for things here in Mexico. Me and my companion have been working pretty hard but it seems like the trial of my faith has hit. My investigatores are really amazing but they just don't want to keep there committment to attend church. I know that when we have a trial we need to trust in the Lord and go forward. Just recently out mission had a serious Study of the Book of Mormon, I completed the Book of Mormon in 90 days. It was such an amazing experience and I have learned so many things from this great and marveleous Book!!! I would like to challenge you all to have a serious study of the Book of Mormon and try to read 3 chapters a day. I promise if you do it you will have so many blessing come into your life!! Well I hope everything is going great for everyone over there. I love you all so much and am so grateful for all of your support and love!!! Please let me know if I can do anything for ya!!

con mucho amor
