The first day here we had a new missionary devotional type thing and in one of the talks this was said, "Don't worry about your family. Because you are here they will be kept safe and protected." that brought me much peace and I wanted my family to know that.
"The teachers are no better than the learners." That humbled me because even though I am serving a full time mission the souls that I come in contact with have just as great of worth as I do. In God's eyes we are loved just as equally and as deeply and as members of the church we are no better than ANYONE else. We are not our sins. And they do not define or catergorize us. That is why we NEED Christ and his Atonement.
"A testimony is necessary but that alone is not sufficient enough. We need to live it!" -David A. Bednar I love that quote and it reminded me of the scripture that faith without works is dead.
Well I am almost out of time but I wanted everyone to know how much I love care for you! The spanish is hard for me. I can understand 99 percent of what is being said (teachers don't say anything in english in class, only spanish) but the actual speaking is very difficult. I was asking mi maestro so many questions and he could tell that I was having major doubts and he said, "hermana, fe! Which means I need to have faith. My faith will be tested very soon because we teach our first lesson to a real person in a few hours IN ALL SPANISH. Pray for me! lol. But I know that I am not the teacher, the Spirit is. I am only the mouthpiece. Wish me suerte! (luck)
