The Gospel is Simple...

 President took a quick trip to Virú yesterday to 
teach with Elder Hendrix and Elder Perez.
Elder Cornejo was with Elder Arteaga and Elder Chun.

I absolutely love this quote by President Henry B. Eyring about missionary work.
President Eyring said…

“One of the ways you will be attacked is with 
the feeling that you are inadequate.
Well, you are inadequate to answer a call to represent God
with only your own powers. 
But you have access to more than your natural capacities
and you do not work alone. 
The Lord will magnify what you say
and what you do in the eyes of the people you serve. 
He will send the Holy Ghost to manifest to them
that what you spoke was true. 
What You say and do will carry hope
and give direction to people far beyond your natural abilities
and your own understanding. 
That miracle has been a mark of the Lord’s Church in every dispensation”

Oh how I testify that this is true!
 And it happens here, in our mission, every single day.

Elder Perez and Elder Hendrix out contacting.

Elder Perez asked a man in one of their lessons they taught...
 Do you remember when you were young
and your parents asked you to do something and you obeyed your parents?  
How did you feel?  How did it make your parents feel?
The man related to this very well... and said Yes, I felt good
and it made my parents happy.
Elder Perez told him that it is the same with our Heavenly Father.  
He has asked us to live the Gospel 
 and when we obey, we feel great.  
Life is good when we are obedient to the commandments of God.
It is really that simple!

Live it..  Love it...  Share it... Show it...

(I love when the President takes photos for me of the cute babies)
