Week 67- Charity

Well this week also went by ridiculously fast! To be honest i dont really remember what happened this week, so sorry for the short email! 

Thursday we had a Noche de Hermanamiento (Fellowship Night or something like that) And it was pretty cool. The members brought their references so that was awesome. One of the members talked about the importance of the temple and the investigators were interested. Then we all played basketball as a ward. 

Friday we did divisions and had to go to Chichicastenango, which was a 2 1/2 hour bus ride to get there. It was pretty fun and chichi is so pretty! And we will be going back in 2 weeks to do divisions again. 

Sunday we had a country wide conference and we got to listen to Elder Bednar. It was pretty cool. Him and the other 70s that talked spoke a lot about the importance of keeping the Sabbath Day holy. I loved what Elder Bednar asked us- if we were obeying God´s commandments to become disciples of Christ or are we obeying just becasue we have to? That gives us all something to think about. 

This week I have been studying a lot about Charity and have been ponderizing Moroni 7:48 that says, 
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are truefollowers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen."

I absolutely love this verse. One thing that I have been trying to work on this year is having more charity towards all men. As we preay fervently for this gift, we become true disciples of Christ, sons of God, be become more like Him and become purified. What great blessings we can have is we just learn to obtain this attribute. Maybe thats why its one of the hardest. As we truly begin to love our brothers and sisters, we have more patience, virtue, humility, and basically all of the attributes of Christ. As we develope this pure love of christ, we can see how our days are brighter and our burdens are lightened. I also studied the talk from Pte Monson called "Charity Never Faileth" and i invite you all to take a peek and see what you can do to have more chairty this week. 

I love you all and thanks for all of the prayers sent in my direction!

Con amor,
hermana gibson
