This past week was really great! We´ve really started to see a lot of progress with our members and investigators! We had a great ward activity on Friday where we watched a movie called "Manos Milagrosos", (I believe the translation should be Miracle Hands... but sometimes movie titles change completely from English to Spanish... haha), with Cuba Gooding Jr. It was a great movie that reminded us about the power and mercy of God. Everyone who attended really enjoyed it. In the movie there were a lot of difficult moments that this doctor had to pass through and it really made me realize that each hard moment that each of us pass through gives us only 2 choices / opportunities:
1. To draw closer to our Savior and our Father in Heaven or
It´s really hard for me to see how many people do not turn to our Father in Heaven for help in their moments of difficulty. Having gotten to know so many people, in so many situations, with so many problems, I now know for certain that those who confide in the divine help of our Heavenly Father find the help, comfort, hope and strength that they need and desire to move on.
I know that our Father in Heaven lives and loves each and every one of us. I promise you that if you come to him for help (whether or not you have believed in Him all your life or you haven´t until that moment), confide in Him and His ability to help you move forward and persevere any difficulty that you may have, that He will be there. I know because He has been there for me and for many people that I have had the pleasure to serve here in Argentina.
I love you all! Have a great week!
