A message for All Mothers
This message is for all mothers who are in need of help. Maybe you have a youth that has gone astray or maybe someone in your family suffers from a crippling disease or maybe you just need the strength to get up and work everyday. There is a quote by one of the leaders of the Church. I know this quote to be the truth because of the example my own mother has showed to me during my short life. It says " There are very few things more powerful than the Faithful Prayers of a righteous mother" - Boyd K. Packer (Apostle in the Quorum of the 12 Apostles.) I believe and know this to be true. Keep your faith. Keep going. Your prayers WILL be answered if you are worthy and trying to do all you can to keep the commandments of our Lord. You are loved. To feel this love all you have to do is reach and and pray. He will send his love through the Power of the Holy Ghost. This I testify in the Sacred and most holy name of my Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
Some of the Young Men we teach... THEY ARE INSANE. lol
A message to our Young Men and Young Women
Tell them to follow Christ..I will be back in no time lol Tell them they all rock and to do EVERYTHING NECESSARY to join me out here in the field. I could not be happier if I had my brothers out here in the field working with me to help bring others to the truth. To know they have my back and I theirs would give me tons of strength to keep going. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

The importance of a father and family support
I have literally been fighting everyday to keep going. There have been days were it took all that I had to leave the Apartment. Between my back and my stomach the Lord has been trying me to my limit... Since I got to Esperanza I have lost 11 pounds!!!! I am now 217... I haven't been 217 since 9th Grade... lol... But we have begun to see the Fruits. He is revealing the people who are ready to hear the word. They have taken the form of little children who need help learning math to the man who proclaims that he is a sinner long gone and can never receive forgiveness for what he has done. I have learned that this gospel is for all. The healing and empowering message of The Atonement of our Lord and Saviour is for all to feel and experience. WE ARE NEVER TOO FAR GONE. I was reading an old ensign this week and I now have a new quote pasted into the front of my scriptures.. It goes like this "I Hope to be judged as good a man as my father. Before I hear the words Well done from my Heavenly Father, I hope to First hear them from my Mortal Father" - President Boyd K. Packer. This really touched my heart and I learned the truth of this great message very quickly as the Spirit testified of its message. I am grateful dad that you are back home taking care of our little fold of God. I am so grateful that you and mom never gave up on me and always put a firm example for me to follow. It has beyond blessed my life. I love you so very much. I am grateful one of us will be there for the Birth of my niece. She has been blest to be born into a family of amazing grandparents like you guys. Love you a ton.
