The Lord's Work (Week 27)

Elder Herman, Daniela, and Elder Ortiz
at Daniela's baptism
       Welp what a week! We had the opportunity to have the baptism of Daniela Sosa Flores! Truly was amazing! Our district sang “Families Can Be Together Forever”. I thought it would be good cause about a month ago we baptized her daughter and they were both there so it was really awesome! Then later when Daniela gave a little testimony she said she is excited to bring her husband into the church as well! The only problem is he is in the military so he is never home with them. But it has been so amazing helping this family become members of the church! Seeing the difference in both of them is so awesome! I love being a missionary! J Also our President said we can go to the temple with the Branch tomorrow if we have 4 investigators, wahoo! I am so excited! And we have 4 investigators committed, so please pray that they don’t bail! Also gave a talk yesterday and I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to talk about. I prepared a little but then right before I changed it all up, haha. I was kinda all over the place, but a couple people told me it was just what they needed to hear! So that’s good!

Spiritual Thought Of The Week
      This week I read a pretty cool talk by Elder L. Whitney Clayton called “Choose To Believe”. He talks about a little 7 year old girl who was in a plane crash and her mom and dad died. She was lost in the wilderness by herself. She saw a light in the distance and fought her way to it. She could have done a lot of other things in this situation or could have done nothing. Think about it she is 7 years old. But she saw the light and had hope that she would be rescued by that light. She knew it, and then she went to it. And ended up finding someone that rescued her. To be able to recognize the Saviors spiritual light we have to be willing to believe! Belief and faith require our personal CHOICE and ACTION. We seek before we find and we knock before it is opened unto us. We will not accidentally come to believe in the Savior and His gospel, we have to seek to find and knock for it to be opened unto us. We must put our beliefs to action. Our actions are evidences of our beliefs. If we look for the light of the Savior in our lives and believe that we can and then put our beliefs to action we can be rescued too! When we do this we are promised the merciful love of God, the healing light of the Savior and great joys! Doctrine and Covenants 59:23 “But learn that he who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come” Thank you all for the support! I love you and want the best for you! Have a fantastic week!

Con Amor, Elder Herman
