With the little time I have to write, I want to thank you for all of the support that you've given to me. We have been able to find and marry, rescue and baptize families here. The best part about missionary work is finding a family with high goals but many roadblocks and helping them learn how the restored Gospel can help them.
A perfect example of that process is Miguel and Daian. They are a beautiful family given to us as a reference from a member. When we began teaching them, they knew what they wanted (family unity, peace at home, spiritual stability) but were not sure how to achieve it. Shortly after they began applying Gospel teachings and principles in their home, such as family prayer and scripture study, and received many testimonies that helped them overcome difficulties. They put in their part always. They got married; Miguel found work to pay for it which he has now given up to be able to go to church with his wife and son; Daian got baptized and confirmed; now they are waiting anxiously for the Lima temple to open so that they can do ordinances for even more of their family members and extend their eternal family.
I feel humbled to have been a small part of such a great journey in that family, and hope that all are applying these simple principles that form the anchor of our faith.
I love you all!
