Well this week was super awesome. Hermana Nelson is incredible. I
remember when I was leaving the islands to train and come to Toledo
and this kid elder Muir was like hey maybe you’ll train my friend
Hermana Nelson, she is a máquina. And then I did, crazy. She’s a great
comp I, super lucky. She’s up there with the Hermana Wihongis and
hermana Jiménez’s of the world.
Our dear friend Any committed to be baptised this week. I won’t be
there for that, but maybe I’ll Skype in to see it. She’s so sweet and
we met her our first week in Toledo. It has been such a blessing to
serve here. We had zone conference and intercambios which were both
pretty chill. We learnt lots about working with the member which is
pretty crucial in Toledo and we learnt about the new..CHRISTMAS
INITIATIVE. Very excited for a new #iluminaelmundo even if I’ll be
doing it all in English this year. It was cool to visit some old
Barrio 9 friends and to say goodbye to people at zone conference.
Said goodbye to Hermana Tang today. It was so sad but something I love
about the gospel is that there are no goodbyes. It’s just an “hasta
luego” I really have been blessed with the best companions on my
This week I started reading the Book of Mormon again from the
beginning looking for references to Christ, did you know His name or a
reference to him is made every 1.7 verses? Sometimes people doubt that
we are Christians because we have the Book of Mormon. But it’s sole
purpose is to testify of Christ. I know that He lives and that He
loves us. It is such a privilege and an honor to be his representative
in Toledo. I know that through Him we can overcome any challenge and
any weakness and so that one day when He comes again we will see Him
as He is and be like Him.
Have an amazing week!
