Week 45 & 46 Happy Christmas

This week has been a good one, but we are tired.  We did our first divisions this week.  I stayed in the area with my daughter, Hermana Cervantes.  It was a great day and it was fun to be with her again and see how we have grown as missionaries.  Elder Toris from the Seventy came to our mission for a mission tour.  On Friday, we had meetings literally all day with him.  On Saturday, we had a meeting with the leaders.  There were 25 of us in total.  I thought it would be an hour to hour and a half meeting.  When I looked at my watch, at the end of the meeting, it had been over three hours.  It was one of the most spiritual experiences in my life.  We talked about what we can do to improve the mission.  He worked us through what a real counsel should be.  To be in his presence and talk with him and for him to share some of the things he did was something hard to describe.  I’ve heard about these stories before.  An apostle visits a mission and when he shakes their hands he interviews each and every one of them.  He told us in the meeting that he interviewed each and every one of our companions.  He shared with us the problems he felt as he looked in our eyes.  He shared with us some of the experiences he had with the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.  He told us we will know if we have been good missionaries when our grandkids receive their endowments.  He said that the Second Coming will come tomorrow and now is the time to prepare.  He said the weakness we have as humans is that we can’t do anything without the Atonement, without Christ.  I love you!!
