I love you, too!
The Temple grounds are pretty small. There´s some grass, a parking lot, and that´s about it. And the Temple is small, too. But the Spirit is still definitively there. And it´s a block away from the CCM and in a quieter part of Guate or La Capital (Guatemala City).
We made no-bake cookies yesterday, for P-Day. We didn´t have chocolate powder, though, so we used the Guatemala equivalent of Nesquik (ChocoPanda) and, oh man, it was delicious. So good. So, if you don´t have Hershey´s
chocolate powder and you need cocoa powder, use Nesquik. It´s really good. Or, at least for no-bake cookies.
I love Elder Bednar´s talk. And how forward he was. If you keep the law of tithing, great. If you don´t, consider your ways and repent. Very direct, forward, and clear. It´s important to keep the law of the tithe and fast offerings.
We had a really strong lesson this past week. Quite a few, actually. There was one lesson where we bore testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Spirit was so strong and we testified with power and authority. She hermana we were teaching didn´t accept another official visit, but we planted a seed and she used her agency. The language is still hard at times, but it´s getting a little easier. In lessons, it´s better.
Jesus Christ lives. And through Him, our sins and weaknesses can become clean and become strengths, respectively. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God who translated the Book of Mormon with the power of the Priesthood. I know it´s true. The Gospel changes lives. It does.
I love you, dad! Send my love to the family!
Con mucho amor,
