God Loves Everyone

May 16, 2016

Hola, buenas días a todos!

My new companion is from Salt Lake and his parents sent him big packages with gringo cereal; I had forgotten what Cinnamon Toast Crunch was like!

Being in charge of an area when your companion comes always brings it share of challenges, even when you have 20 months on the mission. Getting lost does give you an opportunity to talk to more people haha.  Every week gets better and then you are sent away to another place to start all over again.

Our zone is full of little towns ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours away, which we don’t visit much except when the missionaries have a baptism, an event as common as the solar eclipse. However, these missionaries are awesome and had 2 baptisms this week, meaning we were able to travel and do the baptismal interviews.

Almost all of my mission has been in barely functioning branches, struggling to keep the embers alive.  But interviewing this mom and her son reminds me that God's love can reach out to everyone, even hundreds of miles into the desert. Why do we need an organized, restored church led by God?  Well, God loves everyone, right?  So without this church, God wouldn’t be a God of love, but a selfish God.  It’s hard for most people to humble themselves and join the boat of Zion, but when they do, it changes everything.  I’ve seen that change in people and myself.

Everything is awesome,
