Week 36: Lose Yourself In The Moment

Hey mom! I don't have a ton of time today to write a whole bunch about the week and some of the good stories. I figured I would just ramble off a few of the first things that come to my mind. Hopefully some of the pictures will make up for the words that I lack.

It was another great week out here in San Geezy! We we’re super busy like usual teaching and preparing people for baptism. This week Javier and Pearla got baptized. It was great to see them finally get baptized. Javier is just an animal when it comes to reading the Book of Mormon. In one week he read all of 1st Nephi and half of 2nd Nephi. The coolest part of it all is that he understands what he is reading. It has been a great journey to watch them progress and come to love the Book of Mormon. I can just see Javier as an Elders quorum president in a short time. The craziest thing about their baptism was that because of stake conference, which is next week Javier and Pearla received the gift of the Holy Ghost right after their baptism. I was able to give Pearla the gift of the Holy Ghost and what a blessing that is to have in our lives.  Just a few hours earlier at church I gave Juana the gift of the Holy Ghost so it was a day full of giving blessings. Come to think of it I had to give another blessing earlier on during the week. I just love those experiences though because I'm communicating with our Father in Heaven on behalf of someone else.

Well my computer time is about to run out. I better run but this is what life is all about. Helping others come to know their Father in Heaven more fully. Vaya con Dios.

God is love,
Elder Bennion
