I want to share with you the power of fasting, I have been fasting a lot lately, usually its from one lunch to the next. and we have been having more success lately than in a long time, the members are excited, people are giving us references for their friends, its marvelous!! If we want a stronger relationship with are Father in Heaven, we have to do a little more, we have to really show our love and loyalty, quoting shakespeare President Monson said, "they do not love that do not show their love, so show your love for ´´the least of these, and verilty I say unto you that ye have done it unto me´´ said the Lord.
Pres. Costa Pres. of the Presidency of the Seventy and also the area president of the SW of the States as well. General Authorities are a physical extension of the 12. It was incredible, they are special witness of Jesus Christ, and it shows. I got to shake his hand and everything. If there is anyone that can teach by the Spirit it is Pres. Costa!!! It was a great privledge to hear him speak to us.
Remember my nearest temple is 16 hours by bus away, so take advantage of it! There is always work to do, every member has at least one calling, a missionary, so teach with the missionarys, be the people that say ya we can help teach that family with you, I will have just gotten home from work but I can be there. For this past baptism, a member of the Bishopric was called last minute, in reality we organized the whole thing the day off, Camila said she wanted to get baptized, so we got it all ready, and when we called him, he had other stuff to do, but he said he would be there. We also had two other missionaries with us that day because we were doing that division, and he volunteered to feed them, that same day.
Be these kind of people, no one asks but they just do.
