This week has been something else... Saturday we had a baptism! Sister Rodas was baptized after 2 1/2 years of taking the missionary lessons! So that was super exciting! Also Saturday night we spent the evening in a storm shelter haha. There were some severe thunderstorms with a chance of "tornadic" action that were moving towards the city rather quickly. So we went to some members home and hung out in the shelter haha. That was quite the adventure. But man I love the thunderstorms that they have out here. They are unreal! The sky is just lit up with lightening constantly! And when it was over the city the ground was shaking because of the thunder! It was awesome! Anyhow, that was pretty much the extent of our week.
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the atonement and the effect it has on us. The atonement is something that is there for us to use and take advantage of. It is eternal and will never run out. Which is a good thing because we all sin daily? The Savior has given us an amazing gift that we need to take advantage of! The best way we can show gratitude is to use it! So use the atonement, put it to the test and allow yourselves to change. The ability to change is such a blessing. But that all depends on us and our desire. Hope y’all have a good week and stay safe!
