22 Julio 2013, Guasave Mexico

Mi Querido Familia,
Hey! Well things are going pretty fantastic here right now in guasave. There was a lot of rain this week so things have cooled down with the clouds. Sometimes randomly itエs super humid too and still pretty hot, but maybe I just feel more used to it also? Haha.. Itエs great to here about all the progress going on at home and the adventures that have been going on this summer. Itエs good to take a moment and enjoy life :).
This week Fernando came back from EFY and he had an awesome time. Even though he has just a little over a week baptized he got up and bore his testimony in front of everyone he told us. He made some good friends and overall the the whole experience sounds like it was a success. The youth all came back spiritually recharged and energized.. Luckily with the familia Loredo too, Uva came back home and things are going pretty well with her and the dad Hugo. We had a great lesson with them in the beginning of the week and talked about the importance of families. We talked about how marriage is ordained of God, and the purpose the father and mother have in raising a happy and successful family. She decided itエs time to put her trust in the Lord and they seem like since then they have had a lot more unity at home. Weエre just praying that theyエll put a date on getting married soon! Weエve got a family home evening activity with them tonight.
Besides that E. Casimiro and I are doing good. Ever since we decided to sit down and make some plans together we have had a lot more unity. Weエve had some great lessons this week and I know the Lord is blessing us for working together with the same purpose.. In general that seems like what the theme of this week was in my life. Everything was tied to unity. Weエve got some good goals and plans we talked about to help the zone to be more unified and set and complete our goals... Itエs amazing to think about how the Heavenly Father works in unity with Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost too. Theyエre 3 seperate beings with the same purpose. ィFor behold, this is my work and my glory葉o bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.ィ Moses 1:39.. Like them we must also work together in unity to help fulfill the purpose of God.
Iエm excited to continue working at this time and know that thereエs a lot more to be learned. Sometimes I want to know more about my purpose or exactly what the Lord would have me do at this time. Iエve learned that itエs good to study it out in our mind first and then ask the Lord if itエs okay.. Prayers are needed for us to recieve guidance in our lives. ィBehold, I say unto him, he exalts himself and does not humble himself sufficiently before me; but if he will bow down before me, and humble himself in mighty prayer and faith, in the sincerity of his heart, then will I grant unto him a view of the things which he desires to see.ィ D&C 5:24.. Iエve recieved a cleaner view of things through prayers and I know that it can help us to figure out what exactly we should be doing in life. It makes us stronger and able to appreciate life in a way more similar to the Lordエs view of things.
Have a great week and I pray that we can all humble ourselves and seek the counsel of God in our decisions. Surely he will help us to do what is right and to find true happiness. I love you all!
