February 16, 2015

It was a super satisfying week we got the Family Sandoval baptized, the mom and two sons. It was kinda funny the mom Siria got there and the only clothing we had for her was the jumpsuit thing....she wanted a dress so she was like no im not gonna get baptized like a man i want a dress i want a dress!! Haha in the end she decided to just use an already wet dress that was used by another baptism in the branch, it was all good but it was kind of funny. The family especially the boys were super happy at their baptism, and Siria was way content Sunday for her confirmation.

I've been reading a lot in Alma and in reading chapters 40-42 its super obvious that that is one of the plain and precious truths that has been lost. Its too clear about where were going and whatnot, it makes me super grateful for having that revelation and knowledge restored. At the end of all that was said by Alma about death and resurrection, and the plan of salvation, he leaves it simply enough that (Alma 42:27)
"Whosoever will come may come and partake of the waters of life freely; and whosoever will not come the same is not compelled to come; but in the last day it shall be restored unto him according to his deeds."

I think that invitation is dope....if we want to come and partake of salvation, it depends on us. Besides the power of redemption in Christ, it all depends on if we truly want it. its a cool scripture.
This last weekend till tomorrow is a huge holiday here in south america called carnaval.....basically just a huge waterfight and an excuse for people to get drunk. People throw paint and rotten eggs and a whole bunch of stuff. Were not really supposed to leave the house these next two days so you know its a bunch of fun here. Well see what we can get done this next week.
