On the downside, we are struggling hard core with our ward. So, dad - what do you do when the new first counselor in your ward, who has been on the high council, has a drinking problem? Then he tells us missionaries to our faces that it is our fault that the barrio (ward) is failing! What can you do with that besides hope that Jesucristo venga pronto (comes soon)? We were so bummed...all that we could do was say: no, we aren't working, that is definitely why this ward is failing...yea. SORRY, this week really was hard. I hope you have a better week and that all goes well.
But hey, this church is so perfect and there is an order that will always help to keep everything simple. All that we have to do is follow that order!
Anyway, this week has really made me think about my own testimony, and how really, we have to pray, attend church, keep ALL of the commandments, and go to the temple in order to really develop our testimony and protect our home from the temptations of Satan. He knows our weakness, but we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and knows us perfectly. He will never give us anything that we can't handle (1 Corinthians 10:13).
