Give Me This Mountain!!!!!
ear Family, Hey sounds like everyone is doing great and you received my package! Very nice I hope you enjoy the pictures and your letters. Well everything is going well here in Argentina. Elder Garcia and myself, we had a good week as we were able to help a few of our investigators progress this week and also bring a few new investigators to church. Some of the situations with our investigators are still pretty tough but we know that the Lord will provide a way. We were able to meet with Antonella and Leonel Saturday and teach them but they were not able to attend church Sunday. Every investigator has there own problems but it seems like they all have the same goal, to receive the help of our Heavenly Father. Many are faced with challenges spiritually, physically, and emotionally, and we know the aide for all of these is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel gives us the help and guidance in each and everyone of our lives. I was able to read an article in the new Liahona for this month which I really liked and it really made me think. The article is about a mountain tour guide in Tawian that gives us some good advice about reaching the top of the mountain. I invite you to read it this week if you are able to find and get a hold of this article. He explains how everyone wants to get to the top of the mountain, the majority want to take the easiest way to get to the top of the mountain. We can easily relate that situation in our lives, it is the truth, sometimes we look for the easy way. The article then continues and explains that there is another way to reach the top of the mountain. I am grateful for the many challenges in my life that I have been able to overcome with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that we can reach the top of the mountain as we live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that it is the only true way that we can reach the top of the mountain. I appreciate your love and support. I encourage all of you to live the gospel of Jesus Christ each and everyday, each and every moment. I look forward from hearing from you soon. Con amor, Elder Brooks. Mom- I love you! Dad- thanks for your updates! Mackenzie- thanks for your email and props on your goal! Isaac- thanks for you email good luck with your goals!
