Sept.16th. 2013

Well this week was a really wet week. It rained here for about three days straight. It was kind of crazy considering most of the North part of Juarez was completely flooded. Even parts of our area had many streets flooded. But we were all safe and protected. Our house was in perfect condition and nothing was ruined. We also had kind of a difficult week as well, our investigators Luis and Haydee will not be able to listen to us in the night because Luis now is working two jobs. So this is kind of a problem. Were working a lot with our Ward Mission Leader to see if there is any thing that we can do. But we also had some good news Antonio has the baptismal date for the 31 of Sept. and is looking like his baptism will happen. Something that has been really hard for me is being in the house....why.....well because we have to speak english in the house and my comp. doesn't understand english. so its been kind of a struggle trying to teach him english.
This week for some reason I've been on a hunt or a search to learn more about the Atonement. I don't know why but I love learning about the Atonement. Ive been studying it out really hard searching scriptures and Jesus the Christ, listening to talks. I found something really interesting that I would like to share.
In 1 Nephi 8:10 it says
"And it came to pass that I beheld a atree, whose bfruit was desirable to make onechappy."
now what is the tree, the tree is the love of God.
And we read in John 3:16-17
"For aGod so bloved the cworld, that hedgave his eonly begotten fSon, that whosoever gbelieveth in him should not perish, but have heverlasting ilife.
For God asent not his Son into the world to bcondemn the world; but that the world through him might be csaved."


I love studying the scriptures and learning more and more.
I love you all and miss you all.
God be with you till we meet again.
