Dear friends and family
Well, this week was super awesome
We had a zone conference this week, and an area seventy spoke. It was super inspiring. He talked about the importance of Sunday, the lords day of Sabbath. Which I see so much here in Bento Gonçalves. We have found so many people here in bento Gonçavles who have left the church. They told us that their lives were so much better when they were going to church, but since then, it is evident the damage that has been done. Almost all have families broken up, kids in jail, parents separated, and addicted to addictions of the world. The feeling of peace that comes from living gospel principals is absent, and they always express how they would love to return. But there is always something holding them back. I have realized that the commandments are not a prison of rules, but rather a key which get you out of the prison of addictions and sin. Christ sacrifice does not save us IN our sins, it saves us FROM our sins. Implying that we are require to exercise faith unto repentance in order for Christ sacrifice to help save us from our sins.
That's my message for today, love you all, and stay strong!!
