El Libro de Mormon!

Hola!!! This was a good week. The entire mission is really motivated and working really hard to make September the best month ever. We have some really great things happening in our area right now that we're really excited about. 

We'll start off with the Neri Family. I just love them. Jesus and Ciriana are going to be getting baptized this Saturday and we're really excited for them. We've been helping them go over their baptismal program, interviews and all else that a baptism entails. Both them and the ward are SUPER excited! Please keep them in your prayers this week as they make this step to their Heavenly Father and to becoming an eternal family <3

Ronaldo is doing really well and is going to be baptized soon. We finished teaching him some of the commandments this week and went over the baptismal interview questions with him and he is definitely ready. He does feel that he still has some doubts so we are going to help him recognize the answers that he has already received and help him feel really for baptism.

This week I found out that Bere, a convert in my last area, had her baby very very early. She was 22 weeks along and the baby was born weight 1 pound. As far as I've heard she and the baby are doing as well as can be expected at this point. Please please put her and the Graham family in your prayers. 

One last great thing this week was church yesterday. The ward has been doing a challenge together to read the book of mormon over the last 9 months and this Sunday was the special Sacrament Meeting to share testimonies of the Book of Mormon. I loved hearing how the Book of Mormon has changed peoples lives. I know that it definitely has done the same for me. I LOVE reading the Book of Mormon and the happiness it brings me. President Marion G. Romney said a quote that I really love, 

“I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity—the pure love of Christ—will abound in our homes and lives,bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness." 

What a promise from a servant of the Lord!!! The Book of Mormon truly is another testament of Jesus Christ and shows us how to become more like him <3  

Con mucho cariño,

       The Marrs!!! I lived with them in my first area and we got to see them this week <3
