Out going Pres. Amaya & his wife.
July 21st 2014

What a week! Marriage, followed by baptism and today a zone wide soccer match! Last Friday, the couple was married! :) And Saturday, we were in the water :) Such a spiritual experience! Its such a privilege to see the progression is the people, when we first come in contact with them, to the point where they get baptized, its a complete change. 


I was talking with my Mission President about 3 weeks ago and he told me that the numbers and everything are good, but when they look to see if he was successful as a mission president will be in 20 years, when all the missionaries that were under his wing, are married in the temple, with families with jobs and worthy to be church leaders. I thought about that with all of us. What are we doing today to better ourselves and better our tomorrow? 


Theres a scripture in James 4 that reads  13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go intosuch a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and getgain:

 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what isyour life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, andthen vanisheth away.

We always say theres time tomorrow or ill do it later when we dont even know what later will be! Doesnt have much logic does it? One of the biggest tools that Satan has is Procrastination. In so many ways shapes and forms, we are encouraged to put things off to a later date, we are encouraged to fill our time with the mudane things of the world while the important things sit on the back burner and a lot of the times, get burnt. I remember so many times that I let the important things go, like homework. It was left till the wee hours of the night, and the two weeks that i had it were filled with things that well, now, dont matter and have no value. 

I think maybe it might do us all some good to sit back and see where we are. How much time are we spending and where is it being spent? Some questions that could be asked are: How much time did I dedicate to God today? To my family? To my studies?  I can promise you that you will feel a joy and satifaction from puttin a little effort into the things that matter the most, and always rememer, the things of the world have always been, and always will be there, but the important things wont. 

I Love you all and hope that you have great week! Look for the Hand of God in your lives! Thanks for all the support! :)
