I dont know about you, but I´m feeling 22!!! Taylor Swift could not have said it any better than that. I am now 22 years old, and so far its cool(: Luckily I still feel very young at heart. Well my birthday was on Thursday, and it went awesome. Some of the members really wanted to make me feel at home. They decided to make me jello (because they know I love Jello), burgers, and at night the other missionaries in Villa Rica surprised me with a small Birthday get together. I was deeply touched by the kind gestures of kindness everyone did for me. It truly made my birthday very special, and one that I will not forget. It is a little weird that my only birthday in Peru has come and gone. The best gifts I have received have been from my Heavenly Father: He has given me a loving and supportive family, He has given me another year of live and hopefully many more, and last but not least the opportunity to serve as a Representative of His Son, Jesus Christ. This week has been a crazy, hectic one but a good one. My companion, Hna Jensen, was very sick yesterday, and we couldn’t go out and proselyte. But luckily she is doing a lot better today. Last week we had the opportunity to do divisions with the Hnas of San Ramon. I got to work with Hna Hafen, shes from St. George, Utah. She is a really great missionary. She struggles alittle bit with the language, but she has a strong testimony, and she knows why shes here. I absolutely love that quality about her. Well, I like that quality about all new missionaries. They help remind me of why I came to the mission, and that I should be as excited to serve and share the gospel as they are. While I was doing divisions with Hna Hafen we found a lot of new investigators, but one in particular that I would like to tell you about later on; her name is Jenny. But overall, Villa Rica is doing well. We have a lot of investigators, and many of them have baptismal dates. But sadly not very many of them are progressing. I began to do a little soul searching this week. I was feeling a little down because of that. I began to ask myself questions like, was I doing what I should be, was I doing enough, and was I enough to help these people? I was pondering these questions while speaking to Jenny. As I prepared myself to talk to her, and share a message with her I opened my scriptures, and I opened up to 2 Nephi 32:4. I read the scripture and it says, ´Wherefore, now after I have spoken these words, if ye cannot understand them it will be because ye ask not, neither do ye knock; wherefore, ye are not brought into the light, but must perish in the dark´. I realized while reading this scripture that I cannot force someone to progress or to want the gospel. My responsibility is to share the message, and give them the necessary tools to ask, and receive answers if they earnestly seek them. As I realized that I felt the spirit enter into my heart, and give me the needed boost to teach better. I began to speak to Jenny I felt like I was being guided by the spirit. As I continued to teach she began to open up to me more, and more. She began to explain to me how she lost her son is a car accident, and I began to tell her about the Plan of Salvation. I know that the Holy Ghost is real, and that He is the teacher. I am simply here to be the instrument. Only He can take this message, and reach the hearts of the children of Men. I invite you all to share the gospel with a relative, a close friend, or a complete stranger. We all need this wonderful message (: pass it along.
