Love is a Weird Thing

Hello everybody.

THIS WEEK WAS THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE!  AZUSENA, SUSAN, AND GISELLE GOT BAPTIZED ON SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 2015 AT 7:32 PM AND IT WAS AMAZING. (I'm just kidding about the time.  I don't know when they really were. But the rest is accurate information.)  All we have now to make that family completely baptized is mom. She just needs the strength to quit coffee.  She is doing everything else though! It was her birthday yesterday too and we are going to clean her house for her along with Angel, Susan, Azusena, and Giselle on Wednesday for a late birthday present!  She'll love it since she's always working and then works nonstop when she comes home to clean the house and whatnot!  Yeah.  Basically I love that family to death.
We are so excited to be baptizing it's not even funny.

Baptism symbol with the programs!

I also realized a weird thing about loving people.  It's feels so good to love somebody but since your love is something you give to another person they can either magnify it with those choices or break your heart.  You come to love the people you serve and teach about the gospel and Jesus Christ and it's so AWESOME to see them take the steps necessary to come closer to their Heavenly Father. It's so hard to love people that have agency though.  Sometimes they don't use that agency for good and It hurts so bad to see the people you've come to love with such strength, with SO MUCH potential, talents, and abilities to refuse the simple things of the gospel because they are struggling with things like abuse, drugs, alcohol, work.  There is no other way to say it.  They break your heart.  Don't they see this?  Why don't they understand?  We teach it as clearly as we know how and they still reject us and Jesus Christ. It's agency.  There are a couple other factors but it comes down to that.  Agency.  The thing Heavenly Father was willing to lose 1/3 of the hosts of heaven to preserve.  When we use our agency for good we please our Heavenly Father and our older brother Jesus Christ unimaginably. We magnify their love.  When we do not, I'm only beginning to feel and understand the heartache and pain they must feel.  There is so much suffering in this world.  I hate it.  Satan's influence is real and he's out there.  He wants to ruin families more than anything and he's found some really horrible ways to do it.  I’m gonna knock his block off when I finally get a hold of that wretch.

Anyways.  I love you all so much and I can never stress the importance of the little things too much.  I will tell all of you time and time and time again that the little things, or the daily disciplines, like reading your scriptures, praying, and taking the sacrament, all with real intent, will be the things that make a Christ-like person out of a regular you and a regular me.  I love you all so much and am always praying for all of you wherever you are.  Jesus is the Christ.  He is there for us always. Never forget him. Never lose sight of who you all really are.  I love you all.

Till next week.
