July 27 in Aeropuerto, Veracruz City

Well, I'm back again! This week has flown by. Changes were last week and me and Elder Chamberlain will be together another transfer! That means I will have been with him for longer than any other companion. I'm super excited because we get along super well, he's definitely one of my favorite companions ever, and at this point, one of my best friends. We're also having loads of success, with what looks to be 4 weeks baptizing in a row! Looks like the chain will break after that for 1 or 2 weeks but then it'll start right up again! We've laerned a ton together and we keep trying to make each other better and better. 

This week I have learned a lot about grace. Grace is divine assitence or power endowed to us from God. It comes as a result of our efforts to do what's right. When we really truly do what we can to diligently keep his commandments, when we earnestly seek to become true disciples of Christ (when we seek to truly love one another with the love of Christ, which is charity) we unlock the grace of god, the windows of heaven, so that His grace may fill our lives and His blessings may abound. For missionaries, sometimes that means that we work as hard as we can, and if we're obediant, we find people to teach who want to learn. But for a normal person, this may mean that when we feel lost, confused, like we don't know what to do or maybe what MORE can we do, things just start to go right. 

The blessings of grace are avaible to all of us through obedience to the divine principles and commandments that God has given us (and to help us be obedient to them). I invite all of you to think about how grace could help you in your lives, and to do what is required to recieve it. 

I know this church is true, I know that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I wouldn't give up two years of my life for a lie. Maybe it's hard for you to understand how I can know these things, but if you chose to have faith, to believe that they could be true, then you will begin to understand.

Love you guys, until next week!
