Wow this week was Golden. So many miracles. The biggest thing I learned this week is that Satan is real. But our father in heaven the man that created all has ALL power. Including over the temptations of Satan. My beloved chica Candela got baptized this week! But on Thursday before her baptism all went wrong. Literally. Her mom called us and told us that she would not be getting baptized on Saturday. And so Friday morning first thing we did was go talk to her about everything. And she told us that Candela has had so many bad feeling and feels so sick and the night before she had a nightmare that a man all dressed in black tried to choke her and then of course problems in the family and just bazillion things. And even her dad asked her “do I have to come to your baptism?” L Hermana Liza and I just started bawling…. Literally bawling. We have worked so HARD with Candela for the past 2 months and she has progressed SO much. She is literally a different person. I couldn´t help but think of how a lot of the time we have to experience the really bad so that we can enjoy the REALLY good. Because Satan wants us to fall. He wants us to fail. For example when Joseph Smith was in the sacred grove and he was about to receive this sacred vision that would literally change everything he felt this evil spirit and darkness and if he would have given up in that moment he wouldn´t have had the power to restore the gospel, to become a prophet and we wouldn´t be able to make these sacred ordinances. But we felt that we should share Mosiah 4:11-13
“11 And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.
12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.
13 And ye will not have a mind to injure one another, but to live peaceably, and to render to every man according to that which is his due.”
And she started bawling and we were just all bawling and she said that she would come the get interview by our zone leaders. So she came and she was so happy and so excited and told us that her grandpa was going to preform the baptism and it was literally the most beautiful experience.
Mark 9:29 “And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”
I know without a doubt in my mind that the power of fasting and sincere prayer is so real. It truly is a gift that we have. I know that all things are possible through our Savior Jesus Christ. And when we have faith in him we can truly create miracles.
This is the same god that “brought the children of Israel out the land of Egypt and caused that they should walk through the Red Sea on DRY ground.” Mosiah 7:19 He literally has all power. And all we have to do is trust in him and trust in his word. And all that is right and for our wellbeing will come to pass. We have to have confidence and him and nothing else.
Mark9:23 “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”
I love this gospel. And I am just more than grateful for all the blessing that come with it. And I know that when we truly have faith God can truly have faith in us and can proceed the miracle. And ps I am staying in Santiago and we are just the happiest little humans. Okay I gottaaa jetttt jajaja
