Alma 26:12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Its all about Becoming
last week we exchanged with one of our district leaders and I went to
their area which is a biking area. Lets just say I'm so glad that
I've only served in a car area, hahah, it was really fun though. Its
definitely a different experience being on a bike. At least you get
to stay in shape! LOL! It does make it easier to talk to more
people though. Last week was a good week though. Our zone had
interviews with our mission president so we had to schedule all those
and we got to go first :) haha. Its always so nice to see President
Miller, he is truly inspired. I don't know how he is able to keep up
with all of us young missionaries, haha. He is an amazing man!
we have an investigator getting baptized this weekend and we are so
excited! He truly is an example of what the restored gospel in its
fullness can do for someone. He always says he honestly felt like he
could have had a good discussion about any gospel topic and felt like
he understood everything before he met us, but now with the knowledge
that he has of the restored gospel he ACTUALLY fully understands what
everything is and why its all important. Its so wonderful to see
enlightenment in peoples eyes. And even better when you are the one
being enlightened! lol It still never amazes me to see what this
gospel does for people. Even people who already think they know it
all and can't learn anything else. The wonderful thing about it all
is we never stop learning. And learning isn't even the point of the
Gospel. Its all about becoming. I had a friend mail me a talk by
Dallin H. Oaks a while back called, "The Challenge to Become",
I feel like that topic has been brought up a lot lately. Especially
in this mission because we are always training on things and helping
missionaries and ourselves understand the importance of everything
but all this stuff is stuff that most of us already know we just have
to apply it. That's the Gospel right there. Its a beautiful and
continual life changing thing I feel like.
Easter Sunday was a good day of course! The talks in sacrament were
great and the music was amazing. Its such a great time of the year!
We had beautiful weather here in ABQ as well. I hope everyone had a
great weekend and has an amazing week this week! Love you all!
