May 25th, 2015

Dear Family,

This week was such a great week for Elder Salinas and I. Today during companionship study this morning Elder Salinas and I were talking about goals and why we set goals and how we can achieve the goals that we have set. As well as last night Elder Garcia (ZL) and I were talking about how we are able to have success in our areas. I feel like it truly depends on our faith and our confidence that we have in our Father in Heaven. It doesn't matter what area we are in, if we have the confidence and faith, we are able to see miracles.

This last week we also had the opportunity to bring a lot of our investigators and less actives to the temple, which was such a great experience for them. Each and every one of them said that they felt something different that they had never felt before. We were able to testify that what they felt was the spirit of the Lord. What a great blessing it is for the people here in Trujillo to have this Temple, to be able to draw closer to the Lord. We look forward to this next week and in bringing as many investigators and less actives to the temple so that they are able to feel the spirit that is found inside it's doors. My companion and I went to the Temple on the right day because we were able to see President Marler there as well as Elder Uceda (member of the 70) and the Temple president! It was good to converse with them for a little bit.

The work is hastening as the Prophets have testified. I am able to see the fruits of the work every week. Just a week ago we had 284 members come to church and this last Sunday we had 308. The Lord is hastening his work, and I feel blessed to be part of the work that he has.

I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!
