|E, H, V, wonderful Baptism Day!|
|Hermanas Day and Berger|
This Friday for Halloween we have an activity as a zone where we all get pizza and play some games and watch the Restoration video. It'll be weird b/c we're all missionaries and not used to "breaks"--I'm sure it'll be fun too :)
E, H, and V got baptized yesterday and it was soooooooooo gooooooood :) They're such a cute family! As presents, their family members gave them some "Preach My Gospel" books!
We did a cute missionary minute on the PLAN OF SALVATION, the Plan of Happiness. Here's what we presented in English:
We are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. We lived with Him before this life and chose to come to earth to follow His plan.
His plan is a plan of happiness and makes it possible for us to return to His presence and glory after this life. As part of His plan, in this life we walk by faith. We follow our Savior's example and recognize that only through His mercy, love, and sacrifice may we return.
Your decisions here determine your destiny in the eternities.
Center to His plan is our families. They guide us, protect us, and love us. Through the Lord's plan, His divine goal is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man -- of families.
To be with our families for eternity, we prepare to make promises, or covenants, with the Lord.
Through faith, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Spirit, we make sacred steps and strive to stay worthy of all the blessings promised. With holy temples today, we make everlasting covenants. Through which, the greatest gift we can receive is given -- eternal life, to live in God's
presence and become like Him.
Our Heavenly Father has once again reached out to His children in love and has revealed His plan of happiness. You learn about His design in the Book of Mormon, which we invite you to read, ponder, and pray about. We promise that as you take these steps in your lives, you will feel the love of the Lord and you will understand your role in His plan.
I love you all lots! I cannot even express how much I love this gospel and this work!
(VAY, not Day, that is how the Hispanos write it on the missionary meal calendar sign-up sheet!)
