Week 23

This week was amazing!
First off, we had a Zone Conference so all the missionaries in the mission gather together and we had some really amazing people come talk to us.
Elder Villarreal (our area 70) , Bishop Casusse (General Bishop), Elder Craig C. Christensen (President of the Quorum of the 70), and Elder Holland! (of the 12 apostles)

So an amazing meeting with inspired servants of the Lord.
A lot talked about was how changing and repenting and using the Atonement really brings us closer to Christ and how we all need it, not just our investigators. We should all experience these principles for ourselves.

Something that Elder Holland talked about was how this time, right now, is the only time missionary work is successful, and it was deemed long ago that this would be the time the gospel would be shared with the world, and would stick...
"...having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and tongue, and people," Revelations 14:6
All the bible and book of mormon times there were missionaries but they were hardly successful, and this right now being the time it will be successful is also why there is so much opposition in the world.
I am so grateful I was able to meet and shake hands with an apostle, and special witness of Christ.
I hope you all look for truth, and stick with it, and especially don't forget to share it with everyone you know because it will stick, it will bless the people of today. And prepare us all for the second coming of Christ.

The gospel has brought so much joy into my life, I have eternal truths that help and guide me. I know there is a life after this and I am just here to learn and grow. I am so grateful to have an eternal perspective, to know the truth of where I am going and how I got here.
I love the gospel and I love my Savior.
I hope you all can enjoy the joy of eternal truths.
Much Love,
Sister Libbey

Week 22

Hey Hope Valentines Day was good!
This week was great.
I have been bothered to share experiences I have been having as a missionary so
Something cool that I have experiences is while finding people to teach.
Of course many people don't want to hear what we have to say, and are just comfortable with what they got. But of course we as missionaries keep seeking for those that are prepared to hear the restored gospel, those who have a desire to grow closer to their Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ.

There was a nice day that we decided to go contacting so walk the streets in a neighborhood and just talk to anyone that is outside. We prayed before to be guided to know what streets to walk down and what to say to each individual.
We walked and a nice young woman actually stopped and talked to us. She knew mormons and grow up going to many church dances as well. She wanted to learn more and now she is taking the lessons and really feeling the spirit.

So all I have to mention is that every interaction we have with people can leave a great impact.
It can of course affect them in the present but it can always leave an influence for later.
So always be a good example and always invite people.
Much Love,
Sister Libbey

Week 21

It's getting warmer! And the Love is Real.

Its Valentines Week and I really have been seeing the Love God has for each and every one of us.

The one thing that I have always noticed is that God shows His love, in what he has created.
The land we live on, the bodies he has given us. God, Our Father, loves us just like our own father on this Earth. Our Heavenly Fathers love expands far more and beyond we can comprehend.
This world, the beauty of the universe, shows Gods Love. Each of us, created all individually shows the love he has for each one of us.

I feel so blessed to be surrounded by this world, each thing thought out and created by God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Happy Valentines Day <3
Much Love,
Sister Libbey

Week 20

Hey Everybody!
So this week I have been thinking about Agency, that ability to choose.
I love this gift, the gift be responsible for your choices, and it is so great when they are good.
Our life and our character all come about because of our choices.
So have our choices been wise? Are we choosing good everyday?
I know that just one small good choice, leads to more, and only our good choices bring us the most happiness. Especially when we choose to be positive in everything that comes our way.
I am happy I chose to come on a mission, I love the people here in Albuquerque and the things I am learning every day.
I love you all and I hope you are enjoying warmer weather.
