True Repentance


So this week was awesome everyone. I'm going to be straight to the point. This week was awesome. My new companion, Elder Lanuza, is the MAN! He's from Cainta, Rizal and is my batch going home! He's awesome. We get along super well and have really high expectations for our area and the mission. He's super humble too. Anyway, we were able to work this week and found a lot of success. We're hoping to see the fruits of our labors in the coming weeks. We also had a community service project. That was awesome. We helped a member haul huge sacks of dirt into their house to help level the flooring in their house. They're extending their house, but needed some man power so we were happy to help.

Something that I learned this week actually has to do with repentance. This was a recurring topic in many of the lessons that we taught. Something that I learned is that repentance is an ongoing process. It's not merely stopping the sins that we've committed. In order to say that we've fully repented of our sins, we must accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, that through Him and only Him can we fully overcome our sins and shortcomings. It's cool to think that there's someone who's 110% willing to lift us and strengthen us every step of the way. I love that. Christ loves us. I know it. "...Repent, for except ye repent, ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of heaven." Alma 5:51. 

Love you all! Until next week!
