A Plan to Bring Us Closer to Him

Hello folks! Hope you've all had a wonderful week.  Here in San Martin things are still going pretty well.  We were able to find a few new investigators but they have already dropped us, so we continue on with the search for more investigators!!  But things are good and I am very very happy, as always!  :)

Saturday night as missionaries we got to go to a transmission from the South, South America Area Presidency that was broadcasted all around Argentina.  It was a transmission of what they called, " A plan to bring us closer to Him."  The focus on this plan are three things:
  • The Sabbath Day- Finding the delight of keeping the Sabbath Day holy.
  • Spiritual and Temporal Autosufficiency- Becoming to be spiritually and temporally autosufficient
  • The Temple- Enjoying the blessings of the temple
So the idea of this plan is to increase the faith in our Heavenly Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and in Christ's Atonement; through these three things above.  To bring us closer to Christ.  The Area Presidency also did a focus on saving the rising generation and getting members involved in the work of the Lord which was great.  How we need to strengthen the church now so that our children and grandchildren will be able to enjoy the blessings of the gospel in 30 years.  And how the greatest way to hasten the work of the Lord still continues to be through help from the members.  Two things that I strongly agree with!  But one of my favorite pats of the broadcast was when a quote was given in on of the training videos that they showed us.  The quote said, "The gospel of Jesus Christ is quite simply about helping people.  Helping people progress and live with their loving Heavenly Father again."  I loved that!  The gospel of Jesus Christ isn't just about us and our salvation, it is truly about helping othes come unto Him and find the fulness of happiness that God has prepared for us.  It is our duty to make a difference in the lives of othe.  We just need to have faith that the words of the Lord will tell us what to do, and the Spirit will show us what to do -- and as Paul the Apostle taught, "not one effort in this work is in vain."

I love you all SOOOOOOOOOOO much!!! Have a beautiful week!!! :)
