SO basically ive been way upset about this ward. there is hardly participation and so SO much work to do. im not even worried about baptisms as much as getting people active and getting them to church. i was studying this morning about the area plan for Mexico, and it was talking about less active members and how we have to keep working hard and visiting them. and there was the scripture in 3 Nephi 18:32 which literally spoke peace to my mind. KEEP WORKING HARD at whatever you do, wherever you are on your mission or whatever your calling is at home. you have absolutely no idea how much you are helping. only our Heavenly Father truly knows. we are just the servants. and servants dont ask why they have to do things, they just DO it, knowing that its their JOB and that its better to do it than to worry about why. so be faithful and work hard. we can all rest when we die. but for now, theres an INCREDIBLE amount of strengthening to do.
in other news, 9 year old Maximo got baptized on thursday. he asked us "what happens if your Catholic dad goes to the mormon church?" and hermana magana told him "oh nothing much! he just keeps learning and eventually gets baptized!" hahaha shes great. no worries. hes adorable and strong and always prays that his family will live a long time and stay together forever.
love you all. help each other always. dont forget the things you stand for.
love love looovee,
