The Gospel Blesses Families

Hey there! :)

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Día de la madre- Mother's Day. As in, "Happy Mother's Day to my fabulous Mom and all the other awesome Moms I know! I had a great time talking to my Mom (and the rest of my family) yesterday. I hope the other missionary moms enjoyed it too :)"
Colonia- colony. As in, "Here in Chihuahua, there a several Mormon Colonies. Many years ago, the Prophet sent members from Utah to colonize certain sites here in Chihuahua, but since then most of them are pretty empty. The two Mormon colonies that are still thriving are Colonia Juarez and Colonia Dublan. On Saturday, we went to Colonia Juarez to help the ward update their membership records. It's a cool place!"
Templo- Temple. As in, "The temple is the House of the Lord. In the temple, we learn about God's Plan of Happiness and we make covenants with God to keep His commandments. He promises us eternal life if we follow through. We didn't get to go inside on Saturday, but we did get some pictures in front of the smallest temple in the world."

Aside from that super cool Saturday in Colonia Juarez, we had some good lessons. I'll tell you about one.

A missionary from the ward came home a couple weeks ago and had a big homecoming party. A few members called us afterward to tell us about a woman they had met there who had a lot of questions about the Gospel. So we went to meet her with the returned missionary, and she's super cool. She told us that she wants to improve her relationship with her daughters, and she wants to know what is the right way to get baptized. So we told that our message will help her improve her family relationships and come to know for herself what is the right way to be baptized.

Have a great week everyone!
