Week 44

Hi! This week I learned a lot.
It has been fun. Some things that have been talked about lately or at least of what is on the forefront of my mind is about the Atonement really.
About His Grace.
We all have weaknesses and we all need the grace of God.
But to receive all that strength and enabling power to overcome these weaknesses we have to be Sincere and Act, to show the faith we have in Him.
Faith is an action word and after praying with sincere diligence for help,
we then much Act in accordance with what we have said we need help in.
So we need courage to take the first steps and God carried us the rest of the way.
And this is where I feel I am at. Just mustering the courage to act and improve myself, so that God can then shape me.
This all reminds me of the scripture of the month we are focusing on in the mission.
Enos 1:12  Book of Mormon
"And it came to pass that after I had prayed and labored with all diligence, the Lord said unto m: I will grant unto thee according to thy desires, because of thy faith."

I love this because that's a promise that our Faith will help and get us where God and we want to me :)

I love you all and I hope you week was great!

Week 43

All is great here on the Moons (Los Lunas) and Sister Morco and I are thinking every week we will take a fun photo, we will try to be creative.
This last week was fun because we got to help a friend enter the waters of baptism.
Baptism is so key and I am so grateful for all the blessings it brings.
When it is done by the right authority from God, we follow the example of Jesus Christ.
We make a promise with God that we will always remember Him, that we will keep His commandments and that we will represent Him.
In return we are promised the Gift of the Holy Ghost. The Spirit of God as a constant companion.
To guide, protect, enlighten and comfort, whenever we need.
I am so grateful for this promise, the Spirit is amazing. It tells me who I really am, a Daughter of God.
It guides me and comforts me. It is God's gift to help us through this life here on Earth.
Baptism is the gate to receiving these blessings, and it is a great start to the path to returning to our Father in Heaven.

Hope everyone is doing fantastic and is seeking this joy!
Love you All,
Sister Libbey

Week 41 & 42

Hey! Sorry I didn't post last week its been crazy!
So transfers!!! Sister Morco and I are staying! 3 transfers together!
Its just been great here. Excited for this next transfer!
Something I learned and loved this week is the great freedom we have here in the states. 
Well I hope everyone is reading the word of God, and is taking advantage of the great resources the Lord has provided us with to be able to learn and know Them.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! It was fun here. In the small town of Los Lunas there is one big park where everyone goes to watch fireworks and our apartment is two blocks down and we are on the top floor, and our windows face the park, so we had a great view!

Couple weeks ago we also got to go to Old Town in Albuquerque. Best shopping and history in one.

In the Book of Mormon the prophet Nephi prophesied of America and it being a land dedicated to be able to worship God.

We have some great freedom here founded by God. As the church says in the 11th Article of Faith;
"We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may."
I am grateful to be able to worship God. I am grateful to be here.

Stay cool this summer :)
