The Week of Love

Elder Greenwood with Elder Vivanco (Companion)

Happy "Week of Love," Everyone!!! Hope all is well.

This week was full of a lot of different things. We had a lot of divisions and stuff go on. My comp and I didn't get to work too much together but we still got lots of stuff done. :)

Right now, we are helping out a less active family, who has not been sealed in the temple, accomplish the steps necessary. They are working on understanding the WHY behind why we want to receive Eternal Life.

I invite you all to think about the WHY you want eternal life. It will help strengthen your testimony and drive to achieve it. And I encourage you all to watch/ read talks revolved around THE ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE. When we have the eternal perspective, and always remember why we are Latter-day Saints and why we do the things we do, then Satan will not be able to touch us with his temptations.

Cool dog, but NOT a Chihuahua!

We are also helping a few other investigators progress towards baptism. It is an incredible feeling to be an instrument in the Lord's hands to help bring about this work and help and watch others change and come unto Christ.

My scripture of the week is John 3:16 -

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."


In this "Week of Love," I invite you all to remember what Christ did for us. And why. He paid the price of every sin we have or will ever commit and felt every pain or sadness we have or ever will feel. And He did it because He loves us.

How can we possibly show our love for Him or our gratitude for His eternal sacrifice?
Answer the question, make a goal, figure out how to accomplish that goal, and do it.
And you will feel the Love of God in your life more powerfully than you can even imagine.

I love you all! Have a great week! Con Dios, nada es imposible.

Elder Greenwood :)
