Neither take ye thought beforehand awhat ye shall say; butbtreasure up in your minds continually the words of life, and it shall be cgiven you in the very hour that portion that shall be meted unto every man.
An inteligent, logical lawyer attacked our religious beliefs and I remained completely calm as the Spirit filled my mouth, and spoke through me. I learned principles about the gospel as I spoke, because the Spirit of the Lord spoke to that man, through me. I addressed his doubts and calmly explained the gospel principles that can help him attain happiness in this life.
We had coconut juice on the way to one of our lessons.
I cannot explain how heavenly it was.
Fruit in Ecuador really is divine.
Also, we visited a less active in a time of need. We had planned to see her, but couldn´t make the lesson, then we passed by and she wasn´t there. Naturally, we both felt really bad since she had saved part of her birthday cake for us. Then we dropped by on suprise and shared the Plan of Salvation with her (its amazing how we all need refreshers of the basics--it always strengthens our tesitmonies). she explained how we dropped by in the perfect moment, when she needed us most. Another miracle. God guided us to her house in the precise moment.
I love being a missionary.
My birthday has been SO WONDERFUL! And I feel so loved! I thank all of you for your letters and emails and love and prayers. They mean so much to this missionary in Ecuador. I would love to share some of the things I've learned from the scriptures this week, but time is up and I've got to go!
I'll close with this:
He loves you.
Christ is the ONLY way back to our Father in Heaven.
And He lives, as well.
And I love the gospel of Jesus Christ more than life itself.
