The Gospel of the Lord!

Dear Family and Friends,
This week has been a great one. We had zone conference where we were able to learn so much about our work. One of the many things that was mentioned in Zone Conference was that the best age group to work with is Mid-teens to Mid-twenties. This group of people are the best to work with because they are the one who are looking for direction in their lives and they are the one who are more likely to go on missions to be married in the temple and to raise their families in the Gospel. This is not  to say that other people are not ready to receive his gospel. He is always preparing people to receive His gospel, old or young, male or female. They will find the truth in their own time, when they need it the most.  
It has been a very good week. On Saturday we got to drive up to Whittier where Sister Dimmick was able to attend a baptism of a family whom she had worked with while she was up there. It was very exciting to go up there for a short time.  I had the opportunity to testify of the blessings of the temple and about doing Family History.
I have gained a strong testimony this week of the Gospel. I have come to know that the Lord is in the very little details of our lives. Sometimes in our lives we feel small and insignificant, but no matter how small or insignificant we may feel the Lord is there for us. He knows what we are going through and he knows how to help us get through it. I love the Gospel. 
These last 18 months that I have had to opportunity to share the Gospel have been so far the greatest time of my life. I have learned so much about myself and about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have truly come to know with out a doubt that God love each and every one of us. That we a truly sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father who loves us. We have no need to fear God, He will allow us to repent of our sins so that we can return to him. He is a loving Father in Heaven, who wants all His children to return to Him one day. But because He is loving He will not take away our agency or our ability to chose right or wrong. He will give everyone the opportunity to hear to gospel, but he will not force them to accept it. He will only give them the opportunity to hear and accept it, they just will not be forced to accept it. I know that we are able to return to live with a loving Father in Heaven, but we must choose to follow His commandments. He is very mindful of us. He loves us and he will be there to help us. Love you all!
