23 For behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you that the Lord God worketh not in darkness.
24 He doeth not anything save it be for the benefit of the world; for he loveth the world, even that he layeth down his own life that he may draw all men unto him.Wherefore, he commandeth none that they shall not partake of his salvation.
I told them, that I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ do not let us live in darkness. We are able to have light in our lives, and we can overcome any challenge. The spirit was really strong in the room, and I know that it was the spirit who was talking. They also started asking questions about the Plan of Salvation, like: where are we from, why are we here, and my dad who died was a good man, well . . . where is he right now? I was like: I love you!!! Because we had practiced the Plan of Salvation that morning, and when we shared the Plan of Salvation, the spirit grew stronger and stronger. I am so grateful for my trials. They have helped me so much in my life, and more importantly I am able to easily relate to those in tough situations. I know that through Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ we can overcome any trial, no matter how hard it may be.
I had an amazing day Yesterday!!!! We had 5 investigators come, to our Spanish and English ward (I don't know if I have said this, but that I am in a Spanish and English Ward, entonces I get to speak English and Spanish, but that I get to speak English, so yeah I like English, not saying I don't like Spanish, cause I do, but Spanish is difficult, and when people are talking a million miles per hour in Spanish, it just goes over my head. But yeah English is good)!!! It was amazing. I think the best part about the whole thing was the talks in Sacrament meeting. The talks were based on overcoming trials, and how we can do it with the help of our Savior, which was perfect for me and Achilles. Then the Sister speaking shared how she deals with heart problems every day, and how she has overcome this trial by building a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ. It was peeeerrrrrffffeeecccctttt. The spirit was so strong, and I was literally glued to the speaker. Oh my goodness, I still can't believe how perfect it all worked out.
One more thing is that knocking doors is super fun but so scary. It is so weird just knocking up to some random persons door and talking to them about the gospel. I get so uncomfortable, and one time Elder Christensen and I went to this one door, and right as the person opened it up, Christensen ran around the corner. He is just the kindest buddy ever. But all is well, all is well. Basicamente I'm Giddying up like a cowboy. But it is fun.
I love the mission. It has new things in store each week. It is tough, spiritual, fun, crazy and full of light. It is so amazing seeing the light come into people lives. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us. We are here to make a difference in our families, friends and random peoples lives. I love you all. Remember who each one of you are. Recuerda quien es. Nos Vemos.
Sincerely Elder Heiner
