Week 56 – Good Experiences & Bad Haircuts

So we had the baptism of Atahualpa this week, he’s awesome! And yes, I cut bangs, it was a moment of weakness ok, but hey, you’re only in the mission once right? Mostly it was the language barrier and i didn’t realize she meant straight across bangs but yep. Anyways haha, don’t have lots of time, but I love missionary work and I just find myself marveling at every opportunity that the Lord blesses us with. And I was reading a talk from Elder Christofferson about how the Lord orchestrates everything, and that building the Kingdom of God is His work. We met a man in the street and sat down to teach him the lesson of the Restoration, and the first question he asked us was, “How can I know which church is true when there are so many? How can I get an answer from God?” And after explaining the Restoration of the gospel of our Savior, he couldn’t stop thanking us for teaching him,for helping him find answers. And afterwards I was just thinking wow, this message has so much power and it has nothing to do with us. We’re just two 20 year-olds who don`t know anything, yet the Lord uses us to change people’s lives and answer their fervent prayers. What have I done to deserve such an amazing opportunity?

Love you all
