They servin up hot and fresh revelation out here in the mission field..We had a Conferencia Mundial, in which some rules changed...But First I wanted to talk about something they mentioned that I liked a lot. They talked about how sometimes its scary to be a missionary and talk to people about some super deep stuff, but they mentioned how if we have love for those we teach, fear will be eliminated. I love that, and I think it applies to other things too: If we have love, fear will be eliminated.Please check out the February Liahona this week! Its an LDS magazine, but it talks about some super important topics, and I love the one from this month, right down to the cover art. The Liahona frequently talks to kids (in a special kid section) about difficult subjects such as abuse, or pornography. The church is here to build better futures. We need to prepare because this life is scary.I suggest just downloading the PDF and looking through it, anything that catches your eye.------------------------------
--------Someone asked how I found my testimony. I found my testimony here in the mission, but I want you to be able to find yours. If you arent able to pin your testimony down to a specific moment among a lot of wonderful things, thats ok. But I challenge you, with all my blessing, that if you have anything in your life, that you dont like or want to change, sacrifice it for Christ and battle it with all your force. Church leaders are here to help you, not to scold you. This is something I have learned, and my view of the church is so much more from a humanitarian love point of view. I promise that we just want to help people have better lives. Now is your moment. And I promise that the testimony you will gain, will be worth the pain and the suffering that it will require to change.Here is a talk from the Feb Liahona about this topic, but it is filled with this stuff:------------------------------ ---------Weird thing about Argentina:Even though this is cow country, all dairy products are ridiculously expensive and we oftentimes do not have enough money to buy milk or cheese. (I love cheese so this is tough haha)LOVE, ELDER AMANN!!!!!!!!!Gracias to the Harrison Family for hooking me up with a Wolf´em stick all the way down here!Heres a picture of me with some sandia!
