15 December 2015 - Whales and Personal Revelation

Hola todos! Hope you are having an great week and enjoying this Christmas season! This week went by so fast... It is so crazy how fast the time is going by but it is so good. So to explain the subject of this email... So here in the Guatemala Central Mission we have a norm of excellence to contact atleast 35 people a day as a companionship. This means that while we are walking in the streets we just talk to random people about the Gospel and invite them to church and try to get their addresses to have lessons with them. And I have been so bad at this because I have never been someone that talks to péople much. But we were having personal study a few days ago and I was just thinking about this. And to things came to my mind. The first was Moses who when he was called to be a prophet said he was weak and slow of speech and in the scriptures it says that the Lord was angry with Moses. And the other was Jonah and how he did not want to preach repentance to the people of Ninevah and so he ran in the opposite direction and was swallowed by the whale or the big fish. And so now Hermana Wong and I always say during the day no queiro ser comido por un pez y no quiero que Dios esta enjado con mi. And it has seriously helped me so much to improve in this. It is so crazy the effect and the reality of personal revelation. It can truly change our lives. And so yesterday also we bought a whale and named him Pablo... so we now have a little mascot. And it is just so fun. So that is my random little story for the week. And remember to think of Christ during this time of year. Do not get caught up in the commercial side of this holiday. But take the time to reflect on all the things that Christ has done for us. It is truly amazing and astounding to just think of what he sacrificed and suffered for us. And I am so grateful for the opprotunity to be here in the mission and to testify of the reality of the birth of our Savior. He truly suffered for all the things in our lives and He lives. With all of my heart I know that He lives. He watches over and helps us every single day of our lives. And I am so thankful for this knowledge in my life. Remember to take this time to think about this a little these next couple of weeks. Les amo mucho! Tiene una buena semana! Hermana Stewart
