This has been a great week here in los Baños del Inca. This week we had a real fun opportunity to have a family home evening with Jaime and Jovita Diaz in our Stake President, President Barbosa’s, house. We focused on the theme of how we can support the burdens we have here on Earth that appear in our families, our work, our school, among many other situations. God gives us challenges so that we can learn and progress. If we never had any type of problem that needs solving we would never need to learn and we will not be following our Father´s plan which is to be tested here on Earth. How can we have a test without any challenges? Everything that happens in this life, whether it be when we get stuck out in the rain here in Baños or when someone shuts a door on us, everything that happens is for our spiritual wellbeing. These challenges can help us learn and progress if we know how to take them on well. The key lays in 3 simple tools God has given us. These tools are prayers, scripture study, and church attendance. If we do these three things all the while having faith in Christ, we will be able to take on any challenge that presents itself and be able to us it as an opportunity to learn. It is awesome and so simple. Prayer, Scripture Study, and Church attendance.
In slightly less spiritual news tonight we have a family home evening with a member of the ward who is from the jungle. He recently traveled to Iquitos, his home town, and has brought us back some alligator and monkey to eat. Awesome right?!?!?! Wish us luck tonight
Well this has been an awesome week here in los Baños del Inca and with a little bit of divine help this coming week will be even better.
