The Atonement is Everything

Last week, Lundy's email was just a couple sentences, just letting us know that she was doing well. Her companion, Sister Feddock had been in the hospital most of the week with some ongoing medical problems and Lundy spent the week with her, sleeping on the hospital floor next to her bed.  (I've tried really hard not to think about the germs on a Bolivian hospital floor....)  Lots of Prayers going Hermana Feddock's way! 

Well, emergencia cambio otra vez! I'm now serving in the barrio Guarrcal with Hermana Furness and we are sister training leaders! Hermana Furness super great, I love her so much! It was really hard to leave Hermana Feddock,  (pray for her!) she has become one of my best friends and we accomplished so much together.  But, I'm super excited to be in this ward.   It's in the same zone as my first area, Trompillo, and it's a super strong ward.

We are really working right now on finding families to teach.  We talk to everyone.  I love it. On Thursday, we were riding home from district meeting on the micro and I was able to talk to this woman for about twenty minutes.  She was so great. I gave her a Book of Mormon and took her reference down.  She doesn't live in our area, but I could just feel how special she is and I really hope she'll have a desire to learn more and get baptized! 

On Tuesday, we had a zone conference for all of Santa Cruz and it was all about Christ.  We all stood in a circle and said The Living Christ from memory.  It was incredible.  Then, at the end, President Willard and his family (his three daughters were there, they are all so great) sang Families can be Together Forever and we sang with them during the chorus.  It was so powerful and such a strong reminder of why we are here, to help other families be forever families.  

I've learned so much during this time on my mission, but the most important thing is how essential the atonement is.  The atonement is everything, without it we can't do anything. I'm so grateful for the atonement and the power it gives me.  I've felt it's power everyday. I know that Christ lives and that he has borne all our sorrows and with Him we can overcome all. 

I hope everyone has the best week! Love you!
