Elder Sanhueza and I have been working our butts off again this last week. He loves to work so it is always fun going out to teach everyday. We continue to work hard with the less actives and members and are in search for all of their family members and friends who are chosen and prepared. My companion gave his first talk in sacrament meeting in the mission to inspire members to SHARE THE GOSPEL. President Howard Hunter said that a great indicator of the level of our own conversion is the need we feel to share the Gospel with others. I invite all of you to pray for missionary experiences!
We were also able to have personal revelation as we taught the 10 commandments to a less active church member! When we hear the words "don't take the name of God in vain," we often immediately think of a three word phrase that covers the vocabulary of many people. But as members of the Church of Jesus Christ, we have taken upon us His name and thus have promised to become as He wants us to be and to act in a way that He would in a given situation. We have promised to keep all of His commandments, and in turn, God has promised us with His guidance and forgiveness for our faults. We must make sure that the decisions that we make, the things we say, and what we do always makes us an "example of the believers" and in that way, become the light of the world which Christ has asked us to be, beacons to help God's children who have gotten lost or have strayed.
I love and miss you all!
