I want to do what they did for me, for other people.

Today is my 3 month mark! Time flies so fast!

So early in the morning on Saturday, Hermana Bisama and I went on a run with President Hansen(Mission President) It was so beautiful! Then, Juan Carlos was baptized on Saturday! It was supposed to start at 6:00pm but we're in Bolivia so everyone including JuanCa showed up at 7:00 haha! It was so beautiful! My first baptism in the mission and the first in our ward in over a year! He bore his testimony and said, "I can't hug the sisters but they will forever be in my heart, and one day I want to do what they did for me, for other people." He is such a light and he was so happy and I was so happy and we we're all so happy it was like eat, drink, and be merry but like learn about Christ, be baptized, and be merry. Haha

My short message for this week-

2 Nephi 26:25 "Behold, doth he cry unto any, saying: Depart from me? Behold, I say unto you, Nay. but he saith: Come all ye ends of the earth, buy milk and honey, without money and without price." And Vs. 27 Says, "Hath he commanded any that they should not partake of his salvation? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but he hath given it free for all men; and he hath commanded his people that they should persuade all men to repentance."

I feel like I write a lot about repentance and I know for a lot of people (including myself before my mission) that it is a subject we often want to avoid. However, just this past week, I was reading this chapter and these two verses, what I took from them, is that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is sweet and as delicate as milk and honey and whether we want it or not, the Atonement is there for us. Its a gift that we have been given for our earthly life! How sweet of Jesus
:) (No pun intended)

So then I started to think about the great apostasy after Jesus Christ died and all of his apostles, Many churches were created and none of them taught true repentance in the loving manner that Jesus Christ did when he was on this earth. I love the Book of Mormon because right there in 2 Nephi 26 we learn that his Atoning Sacrifice is as sweet as milk and honey and we can partake of it being completely satisfied. Its so beautiful I think!

I hope you all know that I love you so much and pray for you and that you are all so special in the eyes of God, and that He loves, absolutely loves to bless us, we just need to come to Him first. :) "...knock and it shall be opened unto you."

Have a great week everyone!
