This week was amazing! I learned so much that I will cherish for eternity. District meeting was all on Humility. It absolutely changed me. I learned that if my Savior, through the help of His Father in Heaven, performed the Atonement, then there's nothing I can't do without His help too. I think I see the world through different eyes. My perspective has changed and I'm learning about my individual worth, and how that never changes in the eyes of God. We need to see each other's similarities before we see our differences. We are all of equal and important value to our Father in Heaven. Temporal things do not effect our worth, and the adversary will always try to distract us with "vain imaginations" and "self made issues". Your individual worth is permanent. When we remember our origin, it's easy to reach our destiny. When you feel your confidence waning, remember your divinity as a child of the Almighty God.
Our investigator Victoria, that Sister Argueta and I started teaching at the beginning of May, has picked a baptismal date! Her husband is deployed in the Navy right now, and she was originally going to wait until he got home in November to be baptized. We tried to understand and didn't push the issue. As we continued teaching her and as she kept keeping commitments her heart changed! She said that she feels like she needs to be baptized sooner and has chosen! I am so happy for her. It has been such a tender mercy to be able to teach her. She is more prepared than anyone I have ever met. She even got upset when she realized she couldn't have a calling until she was baptized, and has helped us entirely plan and prepare for an upcoming ward party! She's incredible.
This week was full of miracles that I don't even have time to type up! Fret not, they're all in my journal! I want you to know that I know the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. If we allow Him to, and if we are willing to put in the work, He can change our very natures. I'm not sure how, but I know that He can, because I've experienced it. If we have a desire to change and to become better, then we need to humble ourselves in prayer and ask for help, then get up and work for the change. This is a Gospel of transformation! It will transform YOU! Pray for the strength to influence your surroundings, don't let your surroundings influence you! Be a thermostat, not a thermometer! :D
Thank you for all the love, support, and needed prayers!
