My bowels, my bowels!

Jeremiah 4:19-20
“My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me;
I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast Heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.
Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.”


Hahahaha, the food here is good but doesn’t agree too well! Loling… Hermana Signs from Colorado, one of the other sisters here, showed us this because of her similar experiences. We're all so close, I'd say!

Lol. Seriously though I love my Hermanas! And the Elders in my district are amazing, SO strong, hilarious, and motivating! I know they will be fantastic missionaries.

This week has been so good. Very adventurous. I love President and Hermana Moore. They are purely servants of God, and their countenances radiate!

I really want to explain how much I love repentance and the Atonement.

I've taught a few lessons of El Plan de Salvacion with our “investigators” this week and I myself have learned and come to

understand it so much more! I strongly feel that Repentance is purely symbolic for us humans to show God that we are willing and have a desire to follow the path that he has paved for us, whether we know it or not. The Atonement is so perfect and essential for all human kind to feel real happiness and to eventually live with our Heavenly Father and His Hijo amado, Jesucristo, again.

I read a talk this week and it said, “You are going to be tested and tried to prove what you are made of. I just want you to know that if

you don’t get what you think you ought to get, remember, God is the gardener here. He knows what He wants you to be. Submit to yourselves His will. Be worthy of His blessings, and you WILL get His blessings.”
– Elder Hugh B. Brown

I loved reading this. Often times I hear the word worthy and it makes me second guess if Im worthy. Once you have felt the forgiveness, the following guilt can only be sent of Satan. Who would destroy you if he could.

Its Raines birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAINE, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH

AND MISS YOU, I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT YOU ALL WEEK!

I challenge you all to rise to a new sense of commitment to serve the Lord. This doesn’t mean anything extraordinary, just a little

something extra to lift the spirits of others around you… Like a smile or something sweet! I love you all and I really appreciate your

support. Thank you for the prayers, they have been very much needed, I can feel them!

¡Un grado mas!

(This means “one degree more!” If we all gave just one degree more, imagine the difference!)
