Hermana Daly~November 30, 2009...feliz casi diciembre!

Hola familia!!
I´m glad everyone got stuffed up on turkey and stuffing...and that Sean gave a powerful and motivating talk about Christ and His perfect Gospel. This week was a bit of a long one as we walked and walked in the sun without very many lessons...but I did get a awesome blistery burn on my neck. Hna Urra says I´m the first in the mission to have such sensitive skin and that they are thinking of sending me to Antartica haha. But the sun is way strong here and my poor skin is weak haha. But with sacrifice comes blessings. The Bishop and us talked to the members the third hour sunday to wake them up a bit to their responsibility in visiting menos activos and being member missionaries. There have been some challenges, but we are all learning from them and trying to be better, to greet others more warmly, to care for those who don´t come, and to share what many of us continue to keep for ourselves...the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It´s so important, yet we are still afraid to open our mouths and serve with the love of Christ. I was one of those before my mission, but I have learned so much and really have begun to understand my responsibility as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ. If we truly understand the gospel, we would take every opportunity to share it, to help others, to just listen to others, and then give them the hope of the gospel. I hope to remain active in my missionary duties forever. I know it´s hard, but it´s the most important thing. We must always have someone in our mind that we can serve and share the gospel...and if we don´t have one, then we new to make new friends haha (the members always give us that excuse). Okay...the end of my sermon, it just has really hit me this week. So everyone get to the Lord´s work!! :)Love you all and have a fabulous week!!!
