I can not be more greatful during this new year season. The new year is a time of reflexion in the past and in the future. I have always been a fan of the new year and being able ot set goals and put my life in orden. This new year has been completely different for me, and it has been one of the most powerful new years ive ever had. I have had some very powerful, promenent memories during new years, but this new year was a very humbling experience for me.
2015 Is the year of my life that will have the biggest eternal affect on my life and the decision I will make the rest of my life. 2015 was my full year serving the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength, which has made it possible for me to know how to do that for all the following years of my life. It has completely changed my life. The expierences that the Lord blessed me with during the year of 2015 are unnumeral. I have come to know the Lord during this year, day after day, saying the commission and knowing that each step I take is a step the Lord would take.
2016 DyC128:22 Thats how I feel about this following year. Its the year I will give all I have to Trujillo Peru, to the people, to the missionaries and to the Lord. Yes, it is the year I will be asked to remove the plaque, but I reciet the Words of Joseph Smith, Forward, Adelante my Brothern. Let us move forward and never go back. Our Glorious!
12:00am 1/1/2016 - Of all the many things to be doing on New Years I was sitting on a bed in the elderes room in Cajamarca with Elder Craft by myside with a Preach my Gospel on my lap, scriptures spralled on the bed, getting ready for a multizone, trying to catch up from all the Christmas Acitivities and coming off of a leadership training that we did on Wednesday. We planed this training based off of Matthew 14:27-31. We talked about how we can put our Trust more in the Lord during this next year and how we can trust in the spirit in our everyday actions as missionaries of the Lord. It was the greatest way to start of the new year of 2016.
This next week we have 5 trainings starting tomorrow here in Cajamarca, one in Guadalupe, and three in Trujillo. We are in Multizone season, so its a week of trainings. Elder Craft and I love it, its such a neat expierence to train missionaries, but the greatest is all is when you see them apply the things the Spirit taught them during the training.
We had our leadership meeting this past week like I stated above, it was one of the most powerful meetings Ive have ever participated in. It was so very powerful. Sister Marler gave an incredible talk about the Atonement based on a talk called. The Atonement:All for All. Look it up. Then Presidente Marler gave a wonderful training on Repentence and how to teach it. I think as missionaries we are not to good at that. Alma 34 is my invitacion this week. Read it and learn more about atonement.
Well, I love you all! Happy New Year!
