Esta Semana


This was a crazy week, but it was awesome! We taught a lot of lessons and found some awesome people!

This week I went on a super fun exchange with Hermana Fernandez. She is from Mexico and just came to the states a month ago. I was nervous because she doesn't speak English, but it was super fun!

This week I have been thinking a lot about why we go to church. If you were in the last moments of your life I can imagine you would want to be with the most important people in your lives and would tell them the most important things. We read in Luke 22 that when Christ was in the last moments of His life, He chose to be with His Apostles. He knew He was going to be crucified soon, so He instituted the sacrament so that they could remember Him and what He was going to do for them. 

Christ was crucified, but we know he resurrected three days later. Because of that, one day we will all be resurrected too and we will stand in the presence of God to be judged of what we did in this life. By taking of the sacrament weekly we can accept His sacrifice into our lives and be prepared. By taking of these sacrificial emblems we can be clean, in a way we can push a "reset" button every week. Is there anything you wouldn't do to take advantage of this blessing?

In Acts 20:7 we read that after Christ's resurrection His Apostles met together weekly to partake of the sacrament and to remember Him and to remember that through Him we can be cleansed of sin.

As part of the restoration of Christ's church to the earth, the authority to administer this ordinance has also been restored. Each week we can attend church to be clean again!

I love you all and hope you have a great week and attend church next Sunday to partake of the sacrament!
