Wow that sounds like quite the week you have had. I can't believe that terrorist attack. I don't hear anything about things like that ever and so that is a huge surprise. That is such a blessing with those missionaries. But I know that we are protected. I have felt it many times in my mission. The Lord protects his Servants and all his children. We have to live righteously but he will protect us and I know that he will not let us leave until we have done what we need to. I love his plan and love giving that hope to everyone through their Savior Jesus Christ.
Crazy that Denver got cancelled. That stinks so bad. I remember some soccer games like that or Ultimate as well, when you are just so stinkin excited to play and have fun and then you get told you cant that stinks super bad but you guys made the best of it and did tons in the two day you were down in Salt Lake.
ARE YOU ALL AS EXCITED AS I AM FOR CONFERENCE THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOO It is such a blessing to be able to listen to the Lords chosen Servants every 6 months. It is better than Christmas. We are able to learn and grow and find answers and truly know what the Lord would have us do. Let me know of your experiences next week from conference. Favorite Quotes, talks or impressions you had!! I am excited to hear them!!!
This week was absolutely Crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So that Monday I got an email that I had to go to Quito Tuesday night to renew my visa Wednesday morning. I couldn't believe it had been that long. So I left Tuesday night with Hermana Contreras and we got our visas renewed. (my comp stayed with the comp of Hermana Contreras) I got there and got to stay with Hermana Pingree and Hermana Dorta. That was super fun. And we got to celebrate the(birthday) cumpleanos de Hermana Dorta. That was a fun night and I got to see all the peeps from my group to renew our visas. It was weird. Kind of like a trip but not. But fun nonetheless.
Best part of the week though was Victor´s baptism. He was so excited and gave a powerful testimony. Short but so good!! He was super excited and had a wonderful time and just beamed as he came up out of the water. We sang I am a Child of God in English and Spanish for him. That was such a blessing and now he has the Holy Ghost too. He is on his way to become an awesome future Missionary :D
The familia Bermudez is getting married this week!!! #miracles I love them and they are doing so well. Just a few obstacles they have to faith through...like work on Sunday. But that is coming along because they are looking for work. They are fantastic.
So to my title. I have come to find that this is such a true statement. But first I had to learn that trusting God is the only way. There is no other way to live. I think in life that sometimes we find ourselves in a situation or with an investigator or just whatever it may be and we think no I got this. We think that God doesn't need to worry about this little bit of our lives because we can do it fine without him. That we know what it best for ourselves and we can do it. But that so isn't true. God no matter how big or small it is knows best. We just have to be willing to trust him to help us find the answer. He wont just give it to us. It requires a bit of effort on our part...some faith and maybe some hard days. But as we put our trust in him...as we yield our hearts to his will than we will truly find what we need and become more than we could ever make of ourselves. He is all powerful and knows all things. As we truly put our trust in him not matter what the situation I know he will help us. I have to trust in him more. I am not perfect in this but he is perfecting me as I learn to do this. It is a process of a lifetime and will ever be. But he has created a perfect plan for us to become perfect like he is. I love him and his gospel. I love this work and all that we are able to do because of it!!!! This is just a scripture to go along with this though :D
Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth;believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.
Love you all tons and hope you have a splendid week!!!!!!!!!
