Week 17 - An Easter Testimony

This week has been pretty nuts because i have had to stay with the zone leaders the whole week. There really hasn't been much time to visit my area so i am not sure how all of my investigadors are doing haha but the good news is that i get my new companion today!!!! I just figured that out right now and it was a good surprise because i thought i was going to have to wait another week.
General Conference was very special. I had ever captured so much from a general conference in my life! It was like the super bowl, but better! For those of you that missed it, you can watch all the sessions on lds.org and listen to the prophet and apostles of Christ's church (: The words of living prophets help us improve our quality of life and in doing so we gain more peace and happiness!!!
I am expecting to have a baptism this week so we will see if it all works out!! If not this week i will definitely have one next week!! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for his atoning sacrifice. He LIVES! and because he lives all of us will live again as well. 
Because of his suffering our pain, guilt and grief can turn into peace, relief and hope. Our heavenly father loves us perfectly. Why else would he let his only begotten son suffer and die? He did it out of love for US! 
Don't get down. Don't give up. The world is crazy and it will only get crazier, but our eternal father is in control and he has given us way to find true happiness in the midst of such turmoil and pain. The problem is Satan and the answer is Jesus Christ. Do not fall for the fake sugarcoated "happiness" that the world has to offer. Only through the gospel of Jesus Christ can we find ETERNAL happiness. 
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will always have his hand extended toward us and the choice of whether or not we will accept his sacrifice is in OUR hands. I share this brief testimony in the name of our loving savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
