Dear Family and Friends,
We had a service project with another investigator family. The wife is a member less active and her husband is investigating the Church. They are trying to build their house as fast as they can. We went over on Saturday morning and helped them lay some bricks and move stuff around. We were covered in cement powder after the activity!
We had two great Noches de Hogar (FHE) this week. We had one were the children of the family invited their neighbor friends over. It was a blast. We talked about the meaning of Christmas and watching the He is the Gift video (Él es la dádiva)!!!! I love working with the members!!!
It was really hot this week!!! And sandy! And windy!!! I love the weather. I think I am going to get sick when I get home because of the drastic weather change from hot to cold!
I really can't believe that this is my last week!! The time has flown by so fast. I am so excited to see you all and give you all hugs!
Being a missionary for the Lord has been a privilege. The time I have been here, for a year and a half, has been a year and a half that will forever change my life. The things I have learned in serving a mission I never could have learned from going to school, working, or visiting another country. It is because of this mission that my whole perspecive of life has changed.
I have come to understand our purpose here on earth and have come to learn that our Heavenly Father really does exist. I know that He REALLY does love us. In John 3:16 it says that becuase of the Love that our Heavenly Father has for us He sent his beloved Son to earth so that we can return with Him again. He has given us our Savior Jesus Christ as the only way we can truly be happy. I know that there are living prophets on the earth again. He has given us guides and directions to follow to be on the correct path again. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that if we read it with real intent to know of its truthfullness and ask our heavenly father in prayer with faith He WILL answer us. Put it to the test. I have. For the last year and a half this has been my invitation to all of the Argentinian people.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true and Living church of our Savior Jesus Christ. Que privilegio he tenido de poder servir a nuestro Salvador por un año y medio en Argentina! Amo ser misionera y estoy agradecida por poder llevar su nombre sobre mi corazón.
I end this testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
