July 5, 2016

What a great week it has been! I love the mission and its going to be really sad to say goodbye to her when the days being Elder Pile finally come to a halt.  Of course, I will return to the position of Elder if that is what the Lord plans for me in the future to bless His amazing children. I love blessing them through the things that I do now and will continue to act in all diligence until the time comes.

Elder Andrew and I received a surprise call from Elder Inglish (Mission Secretary) this morning, informing us that we needed to travel to a Hospital 40 minutes away in bus to give a blessing for the sick baby in this hospital. I personally love going on special assignments for the mission. So we went over and I was praying the whole time for the spirit so that we could know what to say. We were received by the wife after asking a bunch of nurses where they were located. In this small medical room was the mom and her baby daughter. The baby girl, so pure and good, looked up at us with a oxygen hook-up hanging from her nose. I couldn't help but feel so much love for the baby and her mom that I started to cry a little. I was a little embarrassed and continued to explain why we were there. As we put our hands softly over the  baby girl's head and pronounced the blessing, the words came to my head through a tremendous feeling of the Holy Ghost's influence,"She is my precious daughter. I love her." I don't think I have ever felt so much love for a child of God through the influence of the Holy Ghost than in that moment. I testify that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us in that way. It is infinite and eternal and can never be lost or taken away. 

For some odd reason throughout my whole mission, everyone mentions that I look a lot like Prince Harry. I have no idea who he is but I imagine he's pretty good looking. ;) 

We do not have any baptisms coming up soon. The closest will be on the 30th of July. Her name is Purísima. If you can please pray for her. :) 

I love you guys so much and I know that we are in the Truth. The path is straight and narrow but we know what to do and we have many helping hands. The call is to be true, to follow Christ, and to lend a hand. Let us all do our part to build up the kingdom of our Father.
