Noche De Hogar...

Family Home Evening!
What would we do without families?
Family is the organization of Heaven.
Because our Heavenly Father loves us, He wants us to become exalted as He is.

To help us prepare ourselves for life with Him, our Heavenly Father has 
organized us into families. Through sacred ordinances and covenants, 
our families can be united eternally.

This is what we were teaching this sweet family that was at our home tonight.
We also had President Huamani and a Sister and her son that know them well.

We had a lesson by President Turk
We watched a couple of our favorite mormon messages
outside on the wall of the house
and we had testimonies,
 some dessert...
And we played a couple of games.

Christina is seven and we loved having her and her family 
over for a great evening.

Oh, we ended up outside for a few Jibjabs on the wall.
The Elders that are teaching this family
are Elder Castillo and Elder Nelson.

Very important Quote...
Following the Prophet Joseph Smith’s martyrdom, President Brigham Young reported that Joseph visited him a number of times. On one occasion, President Young said, “Joseph stepped toward me and looking very earnestly, yet pleasantly, said, ‘Tell the people to be humble and faithful, and be sure to keep the Spirit of the Lord and it will lead them right. Be careful and not turn away the still small voice; it will teach them what to do and where to go; it will yield the fruits of the kingdom. Tell the brethren to keep their hearts open to conviction, so that when the Holy Ghost comes to them, their hearts will be ready to receive it. They can tell the Spirit of the Lord from all other spirits; it will whisper peace and joy to their souls; it will take malice, hatred, strife and all evil from their hearts; and their whole desire will be to do good.’”

We have to live by the Spirit.
I love this quote.
