He is always there for us
Monday Apr 25 2016

I love the priesthood. I love the power that it has. My dad once told me that the priesthood is stronger than a whole worlds army. And I have no doubt about that.

Remember Juan Carlos, our investigator who used to be atheist? This week, my comp and I thought that we should go up the big Cristo at the top of the hill, to talk to him and just talk about the love of God. Well, he called us the day that we were going to go, to tell us that his girlfriend had appendicitis and she isn't doing well at all. We haven't ever met his girlfriend, but we asked if we could go to the hospital to visit her and just talk to her and see how she is. He said he would be honored. So we went and we talked with her and her mom and we asked if she would like to receive a priesthood blessing. She said yes. We talked a lot about our beliefs as members of the Church of Jesus Christ and after we went back to Juan CarlosĀ“ house and he cried and he told us that he knows for sure that God exists. And that he knows that God loves him. WOW! It was so amazing to hear him say that, he said he knew it with everything in him.

So the next day, (yesterday) we had church and JuanCa was supposed to come but he didn't answer his phone and he missed his ride. We were sad and sitting in the chapel and right before sacrament, in RUNS JuanCa!!!! We were so happy, he had ran all the way from his house about 3-4 miles away from the church, just so that he could take the sacrament. He was out of breathe hahaha but we were so proud!

Then after church we went to the hospital with two of the elders to perform the blessing for Camila, (women don't hold the priesthood) and the elders preformed a healing blessing for Camila. It was beautiful. We left and then later yesterday, we had a fireside with all of the missionaries and their investigators. Juan Carlos came all alone and at the beginning he sat in the very back, and after about 15 minutes, all alone, shy Juan Carlos walked all the way from the very back to the frontest of frontest rows. And he was crying. It was so peaceful and the spirit was sweet and present. We asked him at the end why he was crying, and he told us that Camila, his girlfriend, told him right after the blessing, immediately she felt no pain.

I know, that all things through faith and all things through God, have power. He is always there for us. He will never move. If He has been there for you in your life before and you don't feel like it now, have no fear because He is the same yesterday(that time in your life before) today, (when you might not think He is there for you) and tomorrow. He will always be there for you and always want the best for you. Have hope and choose faith over doubt every day!

I love you all so much! Thank you for everything. Have a great week!
