Jequié: Vol 1 Chap 6
Wow, these days are going by so fast, and at the same time this week was really really long. I went to the hospital once again, but it was a false alarm - Sister Andrezzo thought that I possibly had an alergic reaction to heart of palm, but it was just a sore thoat. So I refused to take the IV they wanted to give me and I went home and slept. It was great. I think the doctor was very confused... he couldnt figure out why I didnt want to take an IV of ibuprofen... oh Brasil... =)
This week we had a baptism - the man who had the dream about being baptized in green water, do you remember him? Well, he was baptized in green water this last weekend =) It was one of the best experiences of my life. The man is one of the noble and great spirits that was in Heavenly Father's council... he just got a little lost here on the earth. I have never been to a baptismal service that was so spiritual before in my life. He understood so well what he was doing, the promises that he is making... he has been searching for this truth for a long time, and I am so thankful that I could play a part and help him find it.
So much happened this week that I am having a hard time remembering everything... or anything for that matter. Its like asking me to think about what happened a year ago and tell you about it. And its hard to explain, too. I have had so many experiences where I have felt so in tune with the Spirit, that I can see people starting to understand things that they have never understood before. I really wish I had been able to figure out how to do this before, but obviously everything happens in the time of the Lord. Apparently I learned it right when I needed to. I cant think of a whole lot at the moment, just the fact that I love this work because I love what its done to me. I love how I am understanding the gospel so much clearer and so much better than ever before, that I am able to see how my life and what I am doing fit into the plan of heaven. How I am a part of my Heavenly Father's plan - a crucial part, because I have become who I am. I have remembered who I am. And I have been given the wonderful gift of helping others to understand their part in this plan, too. Its incredible. Thats really what it comes down to. This life is incredible. I am incredible =) I am happy, too. Thats better than being incredible
