My comp hasn’t been able to speak to any of the Latinos here because of her Spanglish, so last week when we were on the bus to go to the temple, our bus driver brought his little son…. It was the first time she connected with a Latino, hes 4. Im so proud of her!

God is our loving Heavenly Father. His love for us will never change! He loves us with open and embracing arms. At times we might feel that God doesn’t have time for us, or that we are forgotten and unloved by Him. These are most often the times that we haven’t made time for Him, have forgotten about Him, and haven’t demonstrated our love, for Him.

Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Meaning His love for us has and never will change, but that we might. It says in Mormon 9:9, “For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and in Him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?” Gods love for us has no variableness, it is only constant and unconditional!

WOW! Don’t you just love God? I do. Serving someone is the best way to show someone you love them. I seriously love this work!

1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” Our human eyes often see through a glass darkly, we notice the negatives in life and others. The closer we come to our Heavenly Father and brother, Jesus Christ, we can see others also as we are known. I learned during one of our lessons with our investigator, that God knows our hearts, he knows our feelings, and he feels for us. He wants the best for us! Better than what we could even want for ourselves.

Alma 5:15 says, “Do ye exercise faith in the redemption of him who created you? Do you look forward with an eye of faith…” God looks at us through an eye of faith. He has faith in us. How patient is God, that He would forgive us every single day we ask for forgiveness.

Last night, we had a devotional and something I loved that one of the speakers said was, “We are blessed, because we have come to believe in people.” I believe that our greatest blessings come from that of believing in others and looking at them through a glass, lightly. That we see them as they are and love them as they need.
I love you all!

This week has been really good we had an awesome devotional with all of the missionaries around this area of Peru, come to hear Elder Robbins speak, it was awesome! I saw Elder Dahl (a good friend of mine
from home ward) so that was cool!

I learned a lot that we choose our captain, and when we choose our captain, we must heed unto their counsel.

I hope you all have a great week! Thank you for your love and support.
