This past week was another hard and discouraging week. Yesterday, the mom of Erica (one of our investigators) passed away. And not a week ago, her aunt passed away too. We passed by her house this morning to share a scripture with her and give her some comfort but to my suprise, we found her to be totally at ease. We shared the scripture in Doctrine and Covenants about those who die without a knowledge of the gospel and that they have the opportunity to accept the gospel in the Spirit World and obtain Celestial glory. I felt prompted to share my own experience about my Grandma Dot and how when she passed away that how special was the day when I was able to do her baptism and the rest of her work in the temple. These things were so close to home for me and my heart truly broke for her. But the Spirit was so strong and truly testified the truthfulness of the things that we taught. With everthing that has happened in so short amount of time, she is just as strong as ever and instead of stopping she is already up and running. She is truly such an example to me and is so strong.

 This week I really questioned why the best of people have the hardest lives and I came to discover that it is all in accordance to the magnitude of our faith. If we are strong, of course we will have to go through great trials. How can we ever be strong in the first place without them? The Scriptures literally are perfect. Just like it says in 3 Nephi 18 that if build our houses on a firm foundation instead of sand we will never faltar or be carried away. The key is  to always be strong, firm, and ready for whatever comes our way. Now is the time to be already prepared.
