Overcoming Trials With The Guidance Of The Spirit

Hey folks!

We had a great week here in Arbolillo. We had the baptism of Maribel this week and we have really seen a miracle happen in her life. For a really long time and since the time I have known her she has had a problem with alcohol and she couldn't stop drinking. We would work with her and talk and after going good for a few days she would fall into it again and she didn't show too much commitment during the process to stop. This week however we talked with her about how she wanted her life to be and what kind of goals she had. She recognized that drinking did not make her happy and that it only caused unhappiness and sorrow in her life and for the first time I saw her and heard her express her sincere desire to stop drinking and have the guidance of the Spirit in her life. She was changing and said she had committed with herself right before we went to visit her that day that from that moment onward she would never drink again. We were very happy and with the guidance of the Spirit helped her have an even firer resolution to follow the Lord. We gave her a blessing and since that day she has had many temptations and opportunities to fall but has overcome and resisted. When she told me all about her trials and how she has overcome, it made me so happy to see someone fighting and doing all in their power to be able to return to the presence of our God relying solely on His power.

We had lots of other great experiences this past week and look forward to the baptism of Maria Elena this weekend who is the mom of one of our recent converts, Julio. We have an elder with us for a little while named Elder Solis who is waiting for his VISA to Argentina where he will be serving. He's way fun and I don't think I have laughed so much or so hard in a long time. Needless to say we all are doing great. We also went to the temple this week! Yay! It was the first time I have been able to go since I left the MTC and it was a good feeling being able to go and be in the temple for a little bit. Have a great week! Love you all!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego
