The atonement and plan of god is perfect! That's what I learned this week.

Today is one of the more enjoyable p-days. Another compareismo stayed upstairs with the zone leaders and we all studied together this morning. We played games that have to do with the church and stuff like that. A gamie similar to that pyramid game that Donny Osmond hosted for a while. It was great. By the way, I still don't have a real comp. It's ok though because my current comp is a stud! (he is an 18 year old from the stake) He has to go home this week because he has a dentist appointment and his feet are full of blisters, but he keeps on working. We actually got everything on the standards this week, except for investigators in the capilla. we needed 3 or 4 was a holiday though...dia del nio... It would be ok if we were teaching single people, but unfortuanately and luckily, we are teaching mostly young families. The really good news is that in the next 9 weeks, we could marry 9 couples, but I think realistically 5 couples will make it. 3 of those 9 are part memeber families.

We are doing pretty good. Last Wednesday was the best. After p-day, we had one of the most spiritual lessons of all time, then that spirit carried over for the rest of the weekend. The wife of that member aked me why death was a consequense of the fall of Adam and Eve. I hadn't really thought about it before. After a little discusion, it hit me. It was one of those times when you learn while you are talking. It was way cool. I have heard so many times that one of the happiest moments in the life of someone is the birth of a child. We learn in 2 Nephi 2:11 that there must be an opposition in all things. If there is a happiest moment, there has to be a saddest moment, right? Even for a prophet, the passing of a loved one is enough to bring him to tears. Luckily, the saddest moment is fixed through the atonement. Basically, the atonement and plan of God is perfect! That's what I learned this week.
The chruch is true. Jesus Christ lives and guides and directs us though his chosen prophet, Thomas Monson. I know that it is ture!
