How are you all doing??? I hope you´re warm from all the SNOW in St. George...what is going on?? Well, its hot as usual here in Villahermosa and I´ve managed to get toasted over the past few days, but I´m feeling good and sweaty at all times :)
This week, I´ve been trying to think of what I should write to you. Something that happened, some amazing story...and I came up with nothing, zilch, zero, nada! But one thing comes to mind that was something so simple, yet so special for me. And it made my week, and to be quite honest was a spiritual feature point of the mission.
We have been teaching a little old Jehovahs Witness these last few months. At times I wondered why we continued to visit her, because at times I felt that we were just there to munch on cookies and hear the latest gossip in the building. But we went one last time to visit her and invite her to be baptized to see what would happen. It was the get baptized or die lesson. So we taught her a recap of the restoration and read a little bit from the BOM and invited her to be baptized, and she said YES. What?? She said she doesn´t feel ready yet, but if she comes to know that BOM is true she would get baptized. It was a miracle really. But here is where it gets good. As we were saying our good byes, she began to cry, but not just cry, she began to weep. And she told us how we were angels sent from God, who have helped her not be so lonely, that we have helped her in more ways than we realize. As I heard that, I got a little teary eyed and we cried a little bit together. But it was such an amazing moment in my mission. I finally realized the meaning of 2 Nephi 32: 2-3
2 Do ye not remember that I said unto you that after ye had received the Holy Ghost ye could speak with the tongue of angels? And now, how could ye speak with the tongue of angels save it were by the Holy Ghost?
3 Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore,they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
I know that there have been times where the spirit has guided me in word and deed and has helped me to speak with the tongue of angels. I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost with me as I testify of my Savior and Redeemer and it has helped me to be an angel for someone. I am on the errand of angels. I have learned if we do everything we possibly can to have the Holy Ghost with us at all times, we can be angels for people even when we don´´t realize it. Each and everyone of you are angels for someone.
I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church upon the face of the earth. I know my Savior lives and that the Holy Ghost is real.
I love you all so much and hope you have a great week! Stay strong and keep the faith!
