I don´t have a lot of time to write today because we got to go the RUINS!!!!! One of the coolest experiences of my life!! We are so blessed to have the owner of the ruins in our area and they just so happen to be members!! So we got a free private tour of the ruins and discounts on all of the souvenirs...uh yeah it was pretty awesome!! Of course there are things we can´t do and see because we´re missionaries, but none the less it was such an awesome experience.
We woke up at 5 this morning to be showered and ready by 6:30 to leave on the shuttle at 7 and got there around 8:30 and were there until about 3 that afternoon. The temples literally take your breath away and the carvings are some of the most beautiful pieces of art I´ve ever seen!!! I think we hiked up over 500 stairs, steep stairs, but they were so worth it!! When we got to the top of the prince´s temple, you could see EVERYTHING. You could see the beautiful ancient green trees, all the temples and the millions of people from all over the world. It was SO COOL!!!! We met people from all over Europe and Southern America, although no one really wanted to listen to message on their vacations, it was still so awesome to meet people from all over the world and at least introduce them to the church. I´m SO tired, but so happy right now. Being a member and knowing what we know about these people, made this visit just that much more cool, that much more special, and made my love for the Book of Mormon grow that much more.
Day by day and little by little we are spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the world and through the story and power of the words of these people, many are coming to know the truth that they have been searching for their whole lives, or may have not even known that this was what they were searching for. But millions in the world, including us, have now come to know that truthfulness of their words, and we are armed with the strength of its truth. From the words of Nephi:
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church ofthe Lamb, and upon the covenant people of the Lord, who were scattered upon all the face of the earth; and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.
We live in this great day and have the power of God with us. We know that we cannot fail if we stay true to these truths. So ponder and meditate upon the truths which are in the great Book of Mormon,and you will be filled with the great glory of God´s power.
I hope you all have a great!! I love you all so much!!! Stay strong and stay true!! xoxo
