-we had this activity where another zone came and did divisions with us in our zone. i went with sister willardson from sandy utah and my compa went with sister alam from Costa Rica…we ended up having a lot of success at finding new people to teach, and therefore im suuper sad with leaving this behind..but i am happy to say i left my area better than i found it!
this week we found a cute little old lady who told us that all three of her sons and their families were members. she told us that one lived in miami, one lived in spain, and one lived in managua…she showed us a picture that her son sent us of him and his family at the temple! he bore his testimony on the back!!! she then told us how she had or has cancer and that she has go to managua for a doctors visit…i honestly felt so happy inside bc i just know everything in her life is pointing toward the gospel. we testified that her family wants her to join the church in order to be a family for eternity. we also testified that she would be able to live with her two deceased children as their mom. we told her that christ wants her to accept the gospel while in this life. i truly testify that i felt we had not just coincidentally found this lady. we found her bc the lord wanted us to. he wants her to have the gospel in her life…. we didnt place a fecha with her, but i feel that if my companion works with her she will accept the gospel and change her mind of accepting the gospel “más adelante”
i testify that we need to not procrastinate the day of our repentance. how would you feel if your child told you they werent going to obey you until later in their life…i would feel horrible! its the exact same with christ. if you wait after college or after you become a parent or get married, you are showing christ you dont truly love him or want to follow him. HE KNOWS YOUR HEART. and when you are infront of him at the judgement seat, you will have to answer to him why you didnt want to follow him the first time and why you wanted to wait. if you have the gospel in your grasp, do not let it slip away and deny yourself the blessings of the lord for you and your family.
when christ was looking for his diciples, he told james and john to follow him and he would make them fishers of men. right then…. “IMMEDIATELY” they dropped their nets and followed him. just like this, christ is calling many people to follow him and it pains him to see them reject him…but he and the heavens rejoice when someone accepts this offer and follows him.
FOLLOW CHRIST. FIND HIS GOSPEL. ACCEPT HIS GOSPEL. PERSEVERE. BLESSINGS WILL COME. AND YOU WILL RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE.
