Got to have Faith- Week 9

Hey everyone!

This week has been going slow, but hopefully it gets better! We had our baptism fall though but we hope to pick it up soon! Jose is grand and loves the church, but school really gets in the way for him!

Ana Christina and Armando have been progressing rapidly, and we will be asking them to be baptized soon! We also have a new investigator named Patricia, and she is amazing. she loves the gospel and the new testament, her house has beautiful paintings and I mean the best I've seen ever in a house of all things from the bible. She is progressing and asking us a lot of questions and hopefully she will attend church soon.

Spanish is going better, but that's just because I live in a way different place and need to speak it... also that gift of tongues and stuff haha.

We had stake conference this week, and i must say, it really made me feel weird not to be at stake conference in Utah. We skyped with the chapel in Cali, and it was very different to watch via a skype call. but it was nice. The following day, all of Colombia had a DVD
to watch of the prerecorded conference from the church. We had two members of the seventy talk, one Latino, and one gringo who spoke nice and slow and i loveeeed it, The president of the primary and Jeffery R. Holland.

The talks were, priesthood power, family home evening, partaking of the word, and becoming more like Jesus Christ.

I have been studying Faith this week and wished I brought my planer to tell you exactly which scriptures, and I will next week, but what I got from it was this. Faith is not just standing still and waiting for God to answer our prayers, rather it is we have enough faith to act upon what we know is true, and after acting on such things, we will receive a knowledge, even a perfect knowledge, because we will receive the fruits of our labors, we will also gain a greater testimony about it. For when we know that when we act, we will receive again. Heavenly Father knows that he cannot deny blessings when we do what is right. As it says in DyC 130 v20 -21

20 There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated

 21 And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.

Heavenly Father will bless us. I love you all. Do things in faith and action and He will bless you. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
