Fast and Testimony Meeting ~ Sesión de Ayuno y Testimonio ~ Reunión de ayuno y testimonio

Yesterday was testimony meeting and a lot of people went up front to bear their testimony and everyone did a good job. Of course, there were the usual members who cry, tell their life story, thank everyone in the world for everything, the kids who spit on the microphone, and the kids who just shout so that the world can hear them. It was a good fast and testimony meeting. What made it better was that Flor and her youngest daughter Larisa went up to share their testimonies and Spirit was felt. Later on there were members who told us that they felt the Spirit when those two stood up and spoke. It´s because they have sincerely prayed and really felt an answer from the Holy Ghost that this is true. They don´t just say it to say it and that´s what I love about their testimonies. 

Also, I got to confirm Yatziri yesterday. I remember that we went up on the stand and we just put our hands on her head. I realized when we were ready that I didn´t even think about how the prayer went word for word and I thought for a second, "What do I do?" but then I just felt calm and opened my mouth and the words flowed out. During the blessing I felt that what I was saying from the Holy Ghost and not from my own mouth. Later, her family said that they felt the Spirit when Yatziri was being confirmed. It was a neat experience to be involved in that. I haven´t confirmed anyone in quite a while. 

Patty went to church yesterday and stayed for Gospel Principles class, but she had to leave early. She just said that she had lots of questions but what will help a lot is that she was tearing up during the class which means to say that she probably felt the Spirit testify to her that it was true. I´m so grateful that the Spirit convinces people because I could never convince a person and have that convincement(?) last as long as an answer from the Holy Ghost.

Next week we have transfers and Mother´s Day so it will be a good experience to see y'all again and hear your squeaky voices! I still don´t know if it will be on Friday (Mother´s Day here) or on Sunday. I´ll let you know in a short little bit what will happen. 

Have a great week!

Emails back and forth on Monday

Te amo mi hijo de oro, (I love you, my son of gold)


Worried about Des and this move. Slipping into depression…
Fading…not much to say, it almost consumes all thoughts, worrying about it.
(EH) Which Des and which move? Gotta tell me directly because I don´t understand., ttyl
My daughter/your sister. If we HAVE to move. I start crying every time I think of it, which is often. She's gonna be ok. Worried about not going to MPJH, not really rentals there.
Read D & C 100, the whole thing…….Was believing…I know it will…just really afraid…Ya, I know that one too. I have faith it will all work out.  It’s the MINE not Thine problem. Pretty crushed as you can imagine….
(EH) Quit worrying because worrying never got a person further in life! That´s what I was always told by a friend. Just let life flow and do what you can. If you want to be good with the world, be good with God. That´s something that I realized in my studies this week when I was trying to study for a certain family. I´m not saying that you´re not good with God, it´s just something I realized yet again this week. (re: 542)

Obviously I guess I am still being perfected.
(EH) We´ll skype on Sunday at 3pm your time, 4 my time. You´re not in church are you? I don´t remember but all is well. Love you. Have a good week! 

Me. Son of Gold, I mean God. :) 

Um yes, I will leave right after sacrament. 
Te amo, mi hijo de Padre Celestial!
Mamá, (I love you, my child of Heavenly Father!
