Well this week was super awesome! We have been continuing to teach Antonio more and more and he keeps progressing as a new member of the church. We taught him about the Priesthood and how it is such an important power that we receive as men of the church. We also explained about the importance of the Temples and our family history. In this mission we are starting folletos (can't remember the word in English) that are all about family search and our genologia (as well I cant remember how to spell in English). These folletos are going to be the first in all the church, and we have the great opportunity to start this awesome work. On October 15 we are going to send the folletos to Church Headquarters and they are going to see if they were successful. If they were all of the world is going to have these folletos. How cool is that. I'm starting to fill mine out but I still have things missing.
Dad: I need your birthday/place and the day you and mom were married/the place as well. I also need the birthdays of Grandma and grandpa and the day and place they were married as well as for both great grandparents. I dont know the names of grandpas parents, if you can find that out and send it to me that would be awesome. (by next week)
Mom: same for you I need info of your side of the family.
As well I need a brief story of each person that I can write beneath their name. Dad if you can translate them in espanol that would help me a ton. If not no worries I can speak spanish and translate just fine. I think. haha
This is such an awesome opportunity that we have in the mission and I am super happy to be serving.
We also had our primary program and as I sat their and listened to these sweet children sing and bear testimony that Jesus is the Christ, I couldn't hold back my tears. As I was sitting there I remembered the scripture of the Savior when he said:And they arose from the earth, and he said unto them: Blessed are ye because of your faith. And anow behold, my joy is full. And when he had said these words, he awept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and bblessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them. And when he had done this he wept again; And he spake unto the multitude, and said unto them: Behold your little ones. And as they looked to behold they cast their eyes towards heaven, and they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they came down and aencircled those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angels did minister unto them.
I love to listen to the Primary. The children truely have a sweet spirit.
I love all of you and hope all is well.
Elder Thorpe
