This week was another tough week as far as the work is concerned. Things in the area are a little tough and things in the zone aren´t much better. However we are working hard and I am sure that the blessings will come soon. I am learning a ton here in the new area and am trying to figure out how to be a good leader. Elder Caetano is awesome and we are getting along well.
I have been thinking lately about how each person is different and has different strengths, weaknesses, gifts, and personalities. And God is aware of all of our differences and He will put us through experiences in our lives that will mold us into better people. He puts us around different people and in different situations, all with the intent of helping us become better people. However, in order for us to take advantage of these opportunities, we need to be watching out for them. We need to always be looking for ways we can improve ourselves every day. And we need to have goals for our improvement. We need to determine where we are right now, and where we want to be in the future. Once we determine these two things we can know what parts of ourselves we need to improve. And how do we get from point A to point B? We make a concious effort every day to improve those weak parts of ourselves. Until we finally turn our weaknesses into strengths. And when we finally get to point B we will regognize other weaknesses that we have and we will try and get from point B to point C. And we will keep going like this for our intire lives, always trying to improve our weaknesses and maintain our strengths. It is all part of God´s plan for us and if we are humble enough, one day we will be able to turn all of our weaknesses into strengths and be as God is.
Ether 12:27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them theiraweakness. I bgive unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my cgrace is sufficient for all men that dhumble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make eweak things become strong unto them.
That´s it for this week!
Love you all and thank you for your prayers and fasting, I know it makes a difference.
