Praying for Miracles, SO Excited for General Conference and "If It´s To Be, It´s Up To Me!"

Happy Easter! Because Christ has risen again and by Him and through Him we MAY be saved. "If it´s to be, it´s up to me!

Hey, is the picture down in Ryan´s house? I´m glad to see that everyone went. (to church) 
Tell the Neslen´s hello and the Williams. Seems so quick since they left and are home again. 
(excerpt from Mom's weekly letter) When watching He is Risen, I thought about something. Even Jesus, didn’t necessarily want to do the “hard & scary” thing. HE EVEN asked God in Gethsemane basically, do I have to do this? Wanna change your mind? That was really big for me, kind of just I dunno. You know what I am attempting to explain.....

Interesting about Christ is that when the Angel (Adam) came to visit him he was probably giving him a good little buddy chat because they were like pals back in the creation. Elder Holland said in his talk from April 2009, None Were With Him, that even Christ may not have been totally prepared for the weight that was about to be put upon his soul with all of the burdens of the universe, but none the less, he fulfilled so that we might have the opportunity to repent and be clean to enter the kingdom of God. Read Elder Holland's "None Were With Him"

These last few weeks have been a little difficult for us to be able to find new people to teach. Saturday night I knelt down to pray at the end of a long hard week and asked forgiveness for what I had done (or lacked to do) during the week and asked for a miracle in Church on Sunday. It´s something that I only do when I really feel like I´ve done my part, and it appears to be that way. Sunday morning we got to church and when sacrament meeting was over a member came over to us and said, "Elders, this is my friend Cruz. He´s been taking the lessons in Puebla but he´ll  be living here for a while. He´s been to church a few times and would like to get baptized." We were shocked but so grateful. We talked to him and he really understands the importance of having the truth and being baptized by someone holding the priesthood authority of God. After the services ended, we were helping the ward sectretary fix a few things in the ward list. It was an hour after we had ended and the other ward was just beginning when someone came to us and told us that someone had arrived who lived in our area but had just walked in and sat down. We went and talked to her (Jovita----Ho-vi-ta)  and she said that she has an anxiousness to know our church. She knows a few members and that has helped her have the confidence. She came with her 10 year old daughter, Monse, and they were both happy. During one of the classes Jovita was asked which gift of the Spirit she had. She said, "I would say patience and love, but more love because I´ve had some problems with my husband and I know that this (being a member of this church) will bring more problems, but I love God more than my husband."   Later in the afternoon we went to visit her and she said that she just feels an impulse to keep learning more about the Gospel and that she wants her kids, 15yrs and 18yrs, to grow closer to God. Her 10 year old daughter told us that before going to church yesterday she never liked the idea of going away from home and serving a mission, however, after listening to someone give a talk and share his experiences from his mission that she TOO wants to serve a mission when she reaches that age. What a powerful moment to feel the Spirit!  This a family that right now has serious problems, however, the power of the Gospel changes lives. The Book of Mormon is a source of spiritual power if we just feast upon its words. I know that this family can be united and it is God´s purpose that all families across the world have the opportunity to change just as this family has. 

This week is conference and I´m so excited. Time has flown by since the last conference. I will not be surprised to hear more profetic changes in the sessions of conference this week. We are in an age just before the 2nd Coming of Christ and we are here to prepare the way. Let us all press on has been stuck in my head for a while. Just as D&C says, Shall we not press on in so great a cause? Let us be participants rather than spectators. 

The Church is True. No doubt that Christ lives and that God loves us, for we are His children and He is willing to bless us. Faith works miracles. Let us look to build our faith to find more miracles in our daily lives. Ether 12 is a great chapter to study-- not just read.

  10. Remember, yоur "10" in weeκ οne may not
    be аt a blistering pace, it's what maximum effort is to you individually. It can be a shock to the body to be getting so much less than before and it is a natural reaction to compensate by taking the necessary nutrients from other places in the body. They are particularly easy to digest, so they make a perfect choice for anyone with a quirky digestive system- or anyone experiencing digestive troubles due to the abrupt change in their eating pattern.
