Be the Change you Want to See
So pretty great week, I am now in Trinidad back in Arima with Elder Hill. Guyana was really awesome! I'm going to miss it a lot and the people too. I leftto come to Trinidad so I spent most of my week there.
In Guyana we have a lot of prepared people we are teaching. Data and Shanti should be baptized next week, they are so excited for it. We are teaching a women named Sister Paul, she has been Hindu her whole life but now is converting over to Christianity. Teaching her it's amazing to see the light that has been brought on her life as she has been coming closer to her Savior. She has a desire to be baptized now and feels that peace that he brings. Julie is awesome too, she has cancer but her faith is so strong and she knows she can be healed through Jesus Christ. Her knowledge is great, it's pretty easy teaching her cuz her understanding is there.
In Trinidad now we have a few people on baptismal dates now. They all have a desire so it's awesome too see their want to get baptized. I'm pretty grateful to be able to work all of these people. My testimony has grown teaching them and working with them.
In Guyana we were with the Henry family. They are less active that we picked up when I was down there. I taught them 19 months ago and I remembered them and was sad to hear they are less active. We started to go by again and they have a strong desire to come back to church and to fellowship and do missionary work on their own. They want to have that change in their lives. She told us this quote "be the change you want to see". as we put ourselves out there and act on our faith we can have that change that we desire.
I have been learning a lot from the Book of Mormon as well, I am in 3 nephi 9. This is right before Christ comes and visits the people, before he comes there were disasters and darkness for three days. Enough darkness that no flame could be seen. It's amazing how He is the light of the World and how He can be light in our lives that will always helps us see and feel that love.
