Yesterday was one of the most spiritual days that I have ever had. Yesterday here in Chile was elections for the President so Church was only 1 hour. All we had was the Sacrament meeting and we had an investigator come for the first time. I had the chance to give a talk and when I got up my mind went blank with what I had prepared. I just opened it and the words came. I started by asking a question. I asked what is a covenant. I explained that it was a promise or a contract that God has made with us and that we sign when we are at the age of accountability. Then I read the story of "The Current Bush" (Look for the Mormon Message on it by Elder Christofferson) and explained how God knows what is best for us. I then shared about missionary work and how I struggled to accept that I was a Child of God and that God really loved me. I shared how much love I feel sharing this with everyone and that now I know without doubt that I am a Son of God. Then all of a sudden after I said that the best way to feel it completely is to help other people recognize it and to share it with them, something marvelous happened.
I started crying and couldn´t see past my notes. Then I for the first time in my life heard a voice tell me. "THIS IS JOY" I know without a doubt that it was the Holy Ghost. I love this work with all of my heart and I testify to you! Find a friend or someone who does not have this in their life and bring this happiness to them. There is no other way in this life to have Joy. This I testify to the world. Member missionary work is the only way that this work will move forward.
Con tanto amor,
