October 1, 2012- Temple Blessings

Hey family!

How have you all been doing? I hope that things have been going well and that your all have a terrible amount of success in all that you do. Things have been going well down here in Mexico and to start I would like to share about our trip to the temple.

Saturday we left bright and early at 4am for Villahermosa and the branch enjoyed a wonder day in the Temple. It was a wonderful experience, especially as we had the opportunity to accompany a future missionary we went through for his first endowment session.

Sunday morning was testimony meeting and everyone bore their testimony of the temple and how wonderful their experience had been. An investigator, a 70 year old, also stood up to bear his testimony, he commented how he has felt very alone in his life but also how grateful he feels that the members have been helping him. He also shared his desire to be baptized! A 15 year old girl then stood up and spoke directly to him testifying the he is never alone, that God is with him and that everyone has a purpose in life and no one is useless in His eyes.

Also, the Saturday night as we were walking in the streets, exhausted, we saw a shooting star, something that my companion had never seen before. This small blessing of God gave us the desire to press on and keep working. I know the Lord loves me very much and has granted me this grand opportunity to teach his Gospel. I know that the Church is true and that this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love you all so very much and am grateful for your love and support.
