Anyways, this was a really good, rewarding week. We had a giant event here in our stake called the Festival of the Nativities. They decorated the church and it was absolutely INCREDIBLE! They had more than 500 nativities from around the world and musical performances going the whole weekend. There was an entire room dedicated to Christ's life and it was like walking through His life and seeing it visually. We had quite a few investigators come, including Cecilia and here whole family. She loved it! It was an amazing way to focus on Christ during this Christmas season.
I just feel so grateful for my mission. Thinking about the things I've learned and the ways I've grown, I wish I could stay here forever. I'm so so grateful that my Heavenly Father has given me this chance to serve Him, to learn how to truly love others and to rely on Him. I will never be able to repay Him for the many blessings He has given me. Mostly for the relationship that I have gained with Jesus Christ. I know He lives. He loves us so much and is CONSTANTLY there for us. He's there for no matter how insignificant we may feel or how unworthy of His love we feel. I've learned that all I have to do is go to Him and He shows me the way. I love this gospel. It's not just a part of my life anymore, it IS my life.
Hasta ver <3
