So, this week is Easter Week! I love this time that we get to reflect on our Savior’s life and ministry. He truly lived a life so that we could return to live with God again. I am so grateful for the life He gave in sacrifice for each of us, because we wouldn’t be able to do it without Him. Here’s an AWESOME video on what we can do #BecauseofHim
I definitely recommend it. The Spirit is so strong when you reflect on His sacrifice and what we can do because of Him. I love the Lord and I am so humbled that I have these 18 months to serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength. It is truly incredible.
I’m sorry that I haven’t been great at sending emails! But truly the work here is moving forward because of God! This is His work and the missionaries are simply His hands. We had some wonderful experiences serving and giving to others this past week. I love sharing simple messages of hope with people. For example, we knocked on a door and talked to this lovely lady Carla and her daughter Kyria. Carla has been worried about her daughter, who’s 11, with the friends that she has. We talked about how Christ is our foundation. He is our strength. He is what can and will hold our families together in this time of chaos. School is a war zone. There are so many terrible things in the world and the only one who can offer us peace and strength is our Savior Jesus Christ!
I love this time of year! It’s a great time of new beginnings. Fresh starts. We have the opportunity to hear from our living prophet, President Nelson this weekend and the 12 Apostles as well! I am so excited to see what God wants us to hear. I invite all of you to think of a question that you have and then bring it to General Conference this year. I know that God hears your questions and will answer them as you turn to Him!
I hope you are all doing well, thank you for the prayers and the love!
