HELLO. It's been a wonderful week friends and family, I am filled with
so much love for each one of you, and couldn't be more grateful for
the support I have received from you all!
Due to time constraints I am just going to talk about General Conference!
First of all: For those who might not be familiar with Latter-Day
Saint services, General Conference is one of the biggest blessings we
have as children of God. It is an opportunity to hear the current
council and guidance provided by the general leaders of our church.
One of the best benefits is being able to listen to our beloved
prophet and the twelve current apostles. This is not just a fun
experience to listen to wise and experienced men and women, the
prophet and the quorum of 12 apostles are the literal connection we
have to the heavens. Revelation received from them is the word of God.
I am confident in that statement. So I encourage everyone, listen up
to what they have to say.
My subject, "vamos al cine" comes from Hermano Ireneo. It translates
to "we are going to the movie theatre". I first met Hermano Ireneo in
a hospital room where he smiled at me from his cot and said, "pasense
mis misioneros, mis misioneros" which translates to, "come in, my
missionaries my missionaries". He was hooked up to many different
machines but he still sat up when we came in the room with a huge
smile. I later was able to give him a priesthood blessing of health.
This little old Mexican man struggles to walk, but is always, always
at church. He came for General Conference and was telling us how he
told all his friends and family that this weekend he was going to go
to the movie theatre and that they should all come with him. When they
asked where the movie theatre was he said "it's at church! Let's go"
hahahaha what a fantastic man huh? I wish I had a picture of him to
send...ill get one at some point.
But that is my council today friends, treasure up the words of General
Conference as if it was the movie theatre. This is real. This gospel
is real. We are led by a living prophet of God. Take advantage of that
The work is wonderful, I am happy and healthy(besides gripa) and loving life
I love you all! Have a fantastic week,
Con mucho amor,
