The Church is true!

Busy week!

We got to travel to an area called Itapua Poty this week! There is a family who lives there, and they have woken up at 5 am the past three weeks to make it to church (in Obligado, Paraguay)! They are super interested, and so we got to ride the three hours in colectivo out to where they live to visit them this week. The entire area is just field and farmland! I can honestly say that Paraguay is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to! Parts of the trip all that was in sight were just rolling hills of vibrant green and bright yellow sunflowers! The sky was also a clear, clear blue with picturesque puffy white clouds. I'll have to try and take pictures when we go back!

This Sunday we talked with the family after church and shared with them how the true Church of Jesus Christ has been restored on the earth today- how God continues to call prophets and how the gospel blesses families. When we explained about the First Vision, and later about the Book of Mormon, there was just the sweetest, warmest spirit in the room.

I know that God loves us! I know He continues to be a God of miracles, a God of love. And that's why He has given us this gospel, to teach and help us grow. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He truly saw God the Father and Jesus Christ that spring morning of 1820. I know that we have a living prophet today to lead and guide us. I know God hears and answers our prayers. "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, which giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering." James 1:5

The only way to know the truth is to ask God in faith!

Love you all! Have a marvelous week!
