Week 52

Hey everyone!! 
I've been trying to keep up on every one's emails but today I want to write my testimony, cuzthis morning, something profound happened, that I wish to Share to Testify that God knows us, and loves us. 

Well I have about one year in the mission now. 1 year and 4 days haha 
And the truth is I haven't been the best missionary here. I'm still trying to figure out how to be consecrated, and give my all, every minute of everyday. 

But as a missionary, it's a commandment to give our all every second of every moment. 
And knowing that, this morning, I felt weighed down due to my sins and faults. So I went into the other room of our apartment, to pray. 
As I prayed I acknowledged my faults to God, and I asked for Forgiveness, and to be blessed with the Holy Spirit, according to his will. And when I had asked for that, I felt his profound, and amazing love. I also felt the Love of My savior Jesus Christ. I felt the mercy and forgiveness of Christ, and our Father in Heaven. 
And in that Moment I realized that every time, I had asked for forgiveness, and the Spirit, I always received such. And with that realization, my heart filled with Joy, and peace. 
And I expressed my gratitude to God, and my gratitude for the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. 
I know that Our God, our Father, is Loving, merciful, patient, and understanding of our Faults. and that He knows us, and loves us perfectly. I know that Jesus is the Christ, and that his atoning blood is infinite. I know that Christ is our savior, and that he wants to forgive us. 
And as I expressed my gratitude towards my Father, and my Savior, I desired to truly give back to them, repay them, or make it up to them, for their love and grace they have so willingly given to me. 
But the scriptures teach that we could give God, everything and it still wouldn't amount to nearly enough. We will always be eternally indebted to them. and knowing this, I was weighed down with sorrow, for I wanted to help or give back to God, in some way that would be of significance, but I felt that I couldn't.
I apologized to God for my weakness, and told him I wanted to do something more. 

And in that Moment I spiritually heard the Voice of God and he said unto me "Save my Children" 

My faith has increased greatly this morning. I am in eternal debt to my savior, and father, but all that asked me to do was to bring the gospel to the sons and daughters of God that they may be saved, and enter into the joy, and peace of Gods Kingdom in the final day. 
This experience brought tears to my eyes, and I know that this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I know that he desires to bless us greatly. That's why he blessed us with this Church, and this Gospel. 
I know that this is the true Church of God, and I know that Christ Lives. and I know that God is our literal Father, and he wants us to return with him. That's why he called me on a mission. 
I am grateful to God and his Mercy and love towards all of us. 
I asked all of you to please come and partake of the amazing goodness, and love of God, through his church and Gospel. I know these things are true, and I testify in the Name of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen
