Well this week was a good one(: Monday we played soccer.. again(: and yes.. i did score 2 goals! just had to share that (:
We worked a lot with our converts this week and im so greatfull to be a part of this change in their lives.. i love watching them become more and more happy and closer and closer to our Heavenly Father. AHHH the church is so true(: Sunday we had our ward and all of the missionaries from our zone (16 elders) go out and visit the less actives and invite them to an activity this weekend and also to General Conference. It was an awesome experience to see our youth and also adults go out in pairs with the elders! man i just love missionary work. I couldnt be any happier and wouldnt want to be anywhere else in the world than here in the mission. (: This week i complete 1 year... i cant explain how sad that makes me... time goes by way too fast and i dont want this spiritual journey to end. I just want to enjoy each moment of these next 6 months and give all i have to the Lord.
Monday night we had a family home evening with some less actives that have started to come back to church and we talked about the atonement. It was such a powerful lesson. I was thinking a lot about why we get so nervous or scared to confess things to the bishop.. Our heavenly father already knows what we've done... he knows us perfectly.. our thoughts.. our intentions.. everything. We should fear what he thinks more than what a bishop or anyone for that matter thinks and he ALREADY KNOWS. All it takes is for us to be humble and do what is necessary to repent. Repentance should not be looked at in a negative way.. it is a word of comfort.. a word of hope and love. and our Savior, Jesus Christ paid for the mistakes we made... we cant let his sacrifice be in vain. We will all make mistakes and mess up... thats why we are here, to learn and to become better each day. Repentance should be a part of our daily lives... and we should never wait to correct our wrong doings and to ask for forgiveness. When we know we are in error... we should pray for forgiveness in that moment and pray for the strength to change and not to do it again. We are promised that if we truly repent he will forgive us and wont remember our sins any more.
· I have such a strong testimony of the Atonement and of the Love and grace of our heavenly father. If we made mistakes and still dwell on them.. we should not hesitate to talk to the bishop and to get it taken care of.. there is peace and happiness in being forgiven and looking forward instead of backwards. (: Our Heavenly Father loves us.. and wants us to be happy and to feel at peace. Turn to him and He will comfort you and guide you in your life(:

Que tengan una buena semana y que siempre recuerdan quien son.. y que tienen un Padre Celestial que les ama bastante (:
Con mucho Amor y Respeto
