Queridos Amigos & Familia,
Felices Pascuas! Happy Easter to all of you! Even though it is a little late! I am doing good this week, and hope that you all, had a great easter weekend, and were able to take some time to think about our Savior! We had a good week, and spent alot of time sharing a special message about the Atonement that Christ made for us, and it was a nice week to really get to focus in, even more then normal on Christ. I feel like this time of year the people are at least just a little more receptive to hear a message about Christ!
I had the opportunity to speak in Sacrament Meeting, and it was a great opportunity to share my personal thoughts and feelings about our Savior, and about His work that I have the opportunity to do everyday. I spoke a little bit about the Savior´s experience in the Garden of Gethsemane. Many times we only think about His sacrifice when He was on the cross, but really there was a time much more painful, in the life of our redeemer. And it was when he was in the Garden of Gethsamne. It was there that he suffered for our sins, for our sickness, and for our sadness and afflictions. And in his moments of greatest suffering, he cried to the Lord asking if there was another way, but knowing that there wasn´t He did not His own will, but the will of His father. And he drank that bitter cup, but many times we forget that at his moment of greatest agony an angel appeared to him, to strengthen him, and support him in his time of greatest need. All of us will have trials in our lives, and each one of us will have to pass through our own Gardens of Gethsemane, but for those of us who have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives we know it is much easier, so my message was to them, and to all of you, is that we all can be Angels to our friends and family who are suffering in their own gardens of Gethsemane. We can share the Gospel with them, and bring them into the light, and love that Christ has for each and every one of us. I hope that all of you, as you take the time to think about our Savior, and His sacrifice for us, can also take the time to think about someone else who could use the Gospel in their lives, and be the one to share it with them. Wether it is someone who once was part of the Lord´s fold, or someone new, He wants all of us to be with him. Trust in the Lord, pray to Him, and have faith that he can change your life, and those around you.
I love you all, I miss you all, and I pray for you all. I hope everyone has a great week! And feel free to check out a video I uploaded to youtube!
Until Next Week,
