I’ve learned a lot living here in Mexico and from the members of the church. No matter where we live God knows exactly what is going on with our families. We dont need to hop the border to make more money or to have a better life. If we truly live the gospel and pay our tithing and strive to be self-reliant then God will help us prosper wherever we are. Sure the Mexican economy sucks and the American economy is better, but that doesn’t mean anything. The scriptures are very clear, especially the Book of Mormon, “KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS AND YE WILL PROSPER IN THE LAND.” The land is everywhere and not just the United States. The promised land is the whole continent of the Americas not just North America, but people don’t understand that somethimes.
HOTTER THAN DICKENS HELL, EL NINO TAMBIEN
We have been really privileged this week, like really privileged. First I’ll let you know that on Thursday we had a special conference with Elder Paul B. Piper from the Seventy this week and it was absolutely awesome! He explained to us the importance of our calling as missionaries, out of the WHOLE church, the Quorum of the Seventy and the missionaries are called by apostles and prophets, out of the whole wide church and world… it really opened up our eyes of how important our calling is. He also showed us a lot of ways of how we should teach our investigators. It was really, really awesome! Also, him and his wife know Russian, Spanish and English and they are Americans. He told us there are branches in Iraq and Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries and when he went there one time he had to have an armed soldier with him and head to wear a bullet proof vest and helmet, and there in the middle of Iraq they have their church service. It’s pretty cool that the Lord is preparing his way in the four corners of the Earth, it’s absolutely awesome!
