This week was great! We got to serve so much and I was waiting for this! No one wanted me to serve them here but I kept on asking and I think the Lord answered my prayer! I got to help this family on their farm. I got to feed the cows and to even MILK THEM!!! ha but it was just great. I helped this little boy carry the soda and groceries and it made me remember when I was young and would also do that for my mom. I remember the soda and groceries, where everything felt so heavy and the walk home felt so hard, and to me now, it all felt so light and the walk felt short, IT taught me something! This experience made me see that this also happens in the gospel. We also struggle! We carry the burden of our pains, our afflictions, our sins, even the sadness of losing someone and all that weight makes us want to give up on our road to our Father. But as we keep on going, as we let our Savior help us with our weight, our burdens will be lightened. Our spirit will remember how once before we came to earth, we fought beside Him, we were victorious and we conquered.
May these Holidays be a remembrance of not only our victory in the heavens but of a Savior that was born for us and that in the same way as He came, delivered to us a new beginning! I love you all and though I'm far, I will remain with all of you throughout this mortal journey!
