Alhambra is AWESOME. The Valley Branch is probably THE most 给力 ward/branch I have ever been in. Just to give you a glimpse as to how driven this branch is, their baptism goal for this year is one baptism a week. And their branch mission plan is legit. Brother Lew, our branch mission leader, is legit. The presidency is legit. Everything about this branch is too legit to quit! I am so grateful to work in such a missionary-devoted branch. It has made the adjustment a lot easier and I am pumped to do this work in this part of the Lord’s vineyard.
This week basically involved a lot of meeting new people and getting used to the area. I think I said this last week, but Sister Chan did such a good job strengthening this area. She left us with several really good investigators so we are doing our best to keep them on track.
There is yet still so much for our trio to learn. A lot of times, it gets really overwhelming, but the power of the Atonement is real. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are always there for us. Jesus Christ understands everything that we go through. He cries with us and He rejoices with us. Whenever you feel alone or lost or like no one understands, turn to Him. Do all that you can to gain the simple testimony that He lives and that He atoned for you and me. I promise you, just having that knowledge makes life a million time better, happier and more hopeful.
I want to share a scripture that I read today. It is Mosiah 4:9
“Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.”
I know that Heavenly Father lives! He knows ALL so don’t be hesitant to ask! He loves you more than you can know. Share that love to everyone through serving and sharing the gospel.
I love you all so much! Have a wonderful week 🙂
