Hola a todas las personas en Estados Unidos y en el mundo. (I think)Great week of learning here in Loja! Tough but absolutely wonderful!
But for now I think it´s better to keep the names secret. Just in case one of them like this week, we found drunk in front of their door. It was quite sad and I have all the respect for this wonderful child of God, so we are going to try harder (Well I am going to try harder my father (trainer) is dying (going home) because this person is a child of our heavenly father and they need the gospel more than ever.
We have definitely been praying a lot for this person and fasting and I have learned a lot this week about how God answers our prayers.
And the spiritual topic I want to discuss is La Fe.
Faith is so vital to our salvation. Elder Neil L. Andersen exhorted all the preisthood with this topic and one line that I think is for the world. "Your faith is either getting stronger or it is getting weaker" My scripture for this week is Alma 32:21, it says that faith isn´t a perfect knowledge but a hope for things not seen. But in 27 it says that we must experiment on these words and ACT by our own free will. Then in 41 it says we have to cultivate with "gran diligencia y paciencia".
And that´s the key. Everyday we need to cultivate our faith in the gospel or it won´t be growing.
And especially! We need to be patient with this groweth, Its like the groweth of a plant.
Love to all
Elder Barney (Devan's trainer (father)) is returning home soon
