Baptism, Temple Dedication and The Atonement

This week was so amazing!!! Primarily because of our progressing investigator, He´s to be baptized this Saturday! He is so shockingly prepared. it is such a miracle and we are so excited to see him enter the waters of baptism! This week, no investigators could come to church due to the Temple Dedication of the Córdoba temple, but he came with us to watch the Cultural Event. He was so upset when it ended, he wanted it to continue so bad! The lessons are always so filled with the spirit. We´ll send pics for next week!!

The Temple Dedication was beautiful. President Uchtdorf and Elder Christofferson came and spoke. President Uchtdorf is HYSTERICAL and I love it when he tries to speak Spanish with his German accent. He gave the dedicatory prayer and it was remarkable to be there and here all of the blessings that the Lord has in store for the people of Argentina! It was wonderful to remember, as he said, this day of dedication, and to remember to REdedicate ourselves as members.  It´s easy to live life, avoiding the bad, but not really doing much good. It´s easy to justify all of the bad we´re not doing as good enough, and not ever going the extra mile to help someone or to be better. It´s so wonderful to know that, no matter how deep we dig ourselves into this rut, there is nothing so deep or so dark in comparison to the brightness of the light of Christ´s Atonement. We can choose now to be better and act upon this impression!!! It´s so amazing, how the gospel can change us and mold us into better, more perfected people. Perfection isn´t achievable here, but the Lord has given us the tools that we need to become more perfect every single day, and someday achieve godly perfection! We should never settle for anything but the best. Heavenly Father wants the very best for all of us. I love listening to the words of the Apostles. I know that they are men called of God!

I love you all so much!! 13 weeks left till I can see you all!!

Con amor,
