(This is the letter from this last Friday – July 5)
This week has been an interesting week. So on sunday it started pouring down rain and we were all really board. So what better to do than to take pictures in the rain! it was a lot of fun.
The reason for my title is my friend Hermana Riley quoted the movie Nacho Libre in her sleep!
So this week we made some really good progress. She finally started keeping our commitments and our teacher has told us that we have come a long wat with our spanish and that we are ready to invite her to baptism!
11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled wit mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.
Ok so I didnt finish my email and accidentally sent it!! A ton of the missionaries all got really sick on Tuesday and Wednesday and it was pretty bad! Other than that my week has been pretty much the same! The reason that Alma 7:11-13 is in the email is because I read those this week and thought about how the spirit can sympathize with us but Jesus Christ is the only person who can empathize with his! Jesus Christ suffered for us in Gethsemane and died on the cross for us so that he would be able to succor us. He knows all of your trials, pains, sorrows, and joys! When it seems like no one else can understand and cry with you just remember that our Savior can and that he loves you so much!
