''What we Desire is what we become''
I have come to love my area so much and my companions too but cambios came and we got the call that I am leaving to Colon in Cochabamba in Zona Universidad to finish my training with Hermana Silva, its closer to the temple so Im excited but ah I cried so much last night because I really wanted to stay together and we have so many progressing people here but I know God has a plan for us. I know Ill come to love my new companion too and my new area. I know it will help me grow and become the kind of missionary I want to be.
I love the mission more and more each day because every morning that we study I feel my Saviors love and my desire to be obedient grows and as I strive to serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength I can see the miracles each day.
Last night was my last miracle here in Villa Graciela. Ronnie and his Family are the best ever and last night as we taught Ronnie and his daughter Valeria who's 13 we were halfway through the 3rd lesson when she says ''Yo quiero bautizarme'' I want to get baptized!!! I was like what?? :0 I probably stared at her for a few seconds then I said ''de verdad'' really? haha we explained more about the Holy Ghost and what she needs to do to be baptized. To me its a miracle because her dad had told us she was the hardest to talk to because she didnt believe or something like that and this was the first time we talked to her. I am so grateful for them and excited for their baptisms.
''the only way to save ourselves is to let someone rescue you, its selfish to not use the atonement'' I have learned so much about Christs atonement and hope to learn more. Christ tells us ''let me make you all that you can be'' We cant do it alone, to become our best we need him. I am working on giving up my heart and mind to his work. Its really hard but I know that with time and prayer he's going to help me.
I love you all, Take care and stay strong. and remember that Jesus and Heavenly Father that created the stars and the ocean and universe know your name and love you. The way to feel that is by praying talking to him.
