This week was awesome! I lost my voice for the first time ever due to a cold and couldn't talk for 3 days. Teaching lessons and planning was fun... my companion had to listen closely as I whispered my ideas in planning session. We were both very grateful when my voice finally came back:)
Yesterday we had the great opportunity of going to the re-dedication of the Mexico City, Mexico temple. It was such a beautiful experience! It was also fun to see Henry B. Eyring and Jeffrey R. Holland speak a little bit of Spanish:)
We also had a really great lesson this week with a family that are less actives. We taught them about how the Book of Mormon can answer questions of our souls. We used an example by letting them choose a question they had and we showed them the answers to their question by reading a chapter in the Book of Mormon. Their question was, "Why does God allow so much suffering and wickedness?" We read about it in 2 Nephi 2. It was a powerful lesson that the spirit taught each one of us as we read. After seeing how the chapter answered their questions they had a sincere burning desire to study the Book of Mormon. It is very true what it says in Preach my Gospel that the Book of Mormon combined with the spirit is the best tool that can be used for true conversion. I love the Book of Mormon and am so grateful for all the sacrifices that so many made in order for us to have it. Through daily study it is truly a book that changes people and changes lives.
I hope you all have a great week.... and don't forget to read your Book of Mormon. You can't imagine how many answers inside those pages are waiting for you!
