26 April 2016 - The Good News of the Gospel

Buenas todos! This week was a good one. We had divisions with the Hermana Leaders and so I was not in my área for a day.. which was a little strange but also good. It really helped me to refocus and to be able to put goals for what I want to change and do better. We are really working hard here in the mission to be better every single day and follow all of the counsel that we have been given from leaders. Ever since the world mission broadcast we have been talking a ton about repentance and the importance of repentance and how it helps us and our investigators and how we can have a sincere repentance and much more. And really it was a little interesting because we were talking about this again today in our District Meeting and Elder Falcon made the comment that maybe the reason that we are focusing so much in repentance is because that is where we are failing to be obedient or to put into practice. And how true is that... really Heavenly Father wants us to repent... but he wants us to repent every single day. We cannot put it off. We need to do it today. And really that is something that sometimes is hard but it is how we are going to have more joy and more happiness. And I love that we have the chance to repent because Jesus Christ came to suffer for us. Every single one of us individually because He does not want us to have to suffer like He did. He wants us to be able to find this peace and joy. And really we have been able to see how the Gospel brings this peace and joy to our lives. The Familia Sánchez has recieved one of the biggest outpouring of blessings that I have ever seen in all of my life. Just every single day they recieve blessing after blessing. Hermano Fernando is finding more and more work and they have not been falta food in the table. And really they have been keep compromise after compromise and they just have a hunger to learn. And God has been keeping His promises with them and really has just poured down blessings and the family has been able to really recognize these things and has working hard to just keep learning. And we love them so much. Really they are such a miracle and they have been the biggest example to me. And watching the Gospel change their lives has been amazing. Really they just have an uncontainable joy now and they just glow with the light of Christ. And they want to share it with everyone. And every single day I am just so thankful to my Heavenly Father that He has given me the opprotunity to be a part of their lives and to have the opprotunity to be here in Guatemala in the mission. It is something that 2 years ago I never could have imagined myself doing and now I cannot imagine my life without having these experiences. I know with all of my heart that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. That Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and love us. That Joesph Smith is a prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is true. And I hope that everyone of you can find this joy and happiness that comes through the knowledge of these things. If you do not know them then ask God. He will answer. He always does. Les amo mucho!!! Hermana Stewart
