Firstly, Happy Thanksgiving! It´s amazing how hard it is to remember when Thanksgiving is when you are in a country that doesn´t celebrate it. However, we had a member who didn´t want us to feel homesick, so she made us a thanksgiving dinner; complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, the works. (Photos next week, I forgot my camera today)
Next we had a special zone conference with Elder Omar Villalobos of the Seventy (Church leaders who help the Apostles). It was 2 sessions, but took up almost the entire day. I learned a lot and was reminded of other things as well. A couple of things I gleaned were:
- Is there such a thing as a half-blessing? if not then why are some people half-obedient?
- We are children of God. God lives in the celestial kingdom. Therefore, our spirits were created as Celestial spirits. Adam and Eve fell and ended up in the Telestial world, and then had kids. Therefore our bodies by nature are Telestial. One of the objectives of this life is that our Celestial Spirits can dominate our Telestial Bodies and become Celestial Beings.
That´s all for now. Nos Vemos!
