This week was crazy! We traveled to the south of the mission to do a series of conferences. We started in Temuco and did three conferences there. After that, we went up to Angol and finished off the fourth conference of the week there. All week I was able to work in different sectors and get to know more missionaries. It was an amazing experience, but very tiring. The countryside here is so beautiful. I have been able to grow a lot here in the office. It really has helped me to stop thinking about myself. There are so many people that we need to and are able to help. It is a huge blessing. All week I shared my conversion story with the missionaries in the hopes that it would help them to understand why they are here. What we do is so important. The gospel changed me so much, and being able to think about that some more has helped me to be even more grateful for Christ and what He did for me. He gave me the power that I needed to overcome the sadness and emptyness that I felt and brought light and hope into my life. There is no greater happiness than feeling what He did for me. I can feel it everyday as I teach this gospel and as I work to improve. Everyone deserves that opportunity. I am sure that there is nothing more important that the gospel. If we put that first, we won´t need to stress about the other things because the Lord provides. He always has and He always will.
