LA VIDA DEL CORDERO
This has been another testimony builder week. We have a ton of menus activos in the branch as well as part member families so we have been doing Family Home Evenings with a few families that need a push.
I can't explain the happiness I have felt from doing the FHE's. We reactivated our mission leader and had a FHE in his home and he has many children that are all older and only 2 or 3 go to church. We had such a powerful lesson with the father and we were able to listen to him bear his testimony and actually teach his children what he believed. One of his daughters is not married and has had a boyfriend for years and he asked her directly, "what do you think is going to happen after we die?" "Do you truly believe that you will live with your boyfriend forever if you aren't sealed in the temple?" It was so powerful and spiritual.
We also wen to the recent convert Emilse's house to have FHE with her family who are all nonmembers and again we made a huge progression with her family. Her husband was aging off about the typical church is in my heart stuff and that he didn't need to go to any church. He told us that he knows a lot of bad people that go to church. We were able to testify that we don't go to church just because. We made covenants with our Father in Heaven that we would follow His Son. We talked about the importance of covenants and the importance of baptism and the temple. We listened and he listened........which doesn't happen too often. I am so grateful for the knowledge that God has given me in this lifetime. SO grateful that I can help people make these promises with our Father in Heaven. My companion is an amazing missionary. Very sincere and wants the best for everyone. I am learning so much.
We also had FHE with the Leon Family and we taught the 5 principles of the gospel and we played a game where you had to explain what faith, repentance, baptism, the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end were before you got a prize. Our investigator Uriel was there as well as all the kids of the Leon family. 4 kids under 12 describing in their own words what each of the 5 principles is was extremely spiritual. I was looking at their dad and told him he should be so proud. There is a reason the scriptures say over and over that we need to be as little children to inherit the kingdom of God. When the little 7 year old twins explained the process of repentance and how if they fought each other they need to kneel down in their room and ask God to forgive them and then ask the other brother to forgive him was sooooo amazing!!!
Love my life...
