Week 56: I'M BACK!

For starters I am going to repent for not writing lately and get back on track with what has been happening here in the hood.

First off, I have a new companion, and she is the best. We know each other from the MTC here in Santiago, and now we are companions. We are working well together, and she is helping me become the type of missionary that I have always wanted to be. She is the best!

This week one of our investigators was baptized! It was a long journey, but it happened and it was a complete miracle. I learned that really faith in the Lord and His will and His timing always brings the miracles. When we lack faith, he can´t show us miracles. It is interesting because even though faith is the first and basic principle of the gospel, we lose so many blessings because we lack it. We may be obeying the commandments, but without faith, he can´t bless us. Or at least he can´t bless us as much as he wants to. When we doubt, we hold back part of our hearts, which means we really aren´t giving ALL to him. Limited faith limits blessings, and not just blessings, but miracles.

This week we have been finding new investigators, and really been working hard every minute. As the time gets shorter and shorter I realize more and more that really there is no time to waste.

I am trying to read all the standard works before my mission is over, and even though I finished the new testament, I was studying it today and came across something that I loved:

1 Peter 2: 20-25

 20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it 
patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is 
acceptable with God.

 21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, 
leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he 
threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being 
dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

 25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

I love you all ! thank you for everything!
Love, Hermana Watt
