Dear the fam,
Another week passed, and we're another week closer to Christmas. And another week closer to the end of the world. Only 11 days left!
Okay...not really. :P We get asked that a lot, actually. "Is the world really going to end this month?" We usually quote the scripture about Christ coming like a theif in the night, or that not even Christ himself, nor the angels in heaven know when He will come. Heavenly Father is the only one that knows. We usually tell them that the end is near. That's why our church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So we need to be prepared, and not get caught off guard like one of the 5 virgens that didn't have oil in their lamps. And that preparation comes by following the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. So. Go buy some oil.
This week we started a new plan. Operation: Fortalecer a Sión. The ward here is wonderful, and they're all great people. But we've decided that we need to strengthen them and help them build their testimony before they can strengthen others, or help us with our work.
So. Any prayers you can send this way for the ward, the members, the Bishop, us...will be greatly appreciated. :)
We're still working with Ricardo and Yuranny, but this week their dad, Oriol came to church. We're also working with Jennifer and Ronald, their half sister (is that how you say that?) and her "husband", that just had a baby last week. They've been pretty interested, but with the new born and all the craziness, plus needing rest from the C-section, they haven't been able to come to church.
And hey!!! I just realized that in a couple weeks, I'll be able to talk to y'all again! I'm not sure how it will be exactly with the new president, but I'll keep you informed.
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
P.S. Happy birthday, Dad and Sophie and Alicia! Love y'all to death. :)
