This week we had the special opportunity to see Simon, Camilo, and Wladimir baptized, from the Monte-Avalos family.  

The baptismal service was a very happy experience for them, but the Spirit was especially strong during their confirmations on Sunday.  After the meeting, Wladimir mentioned the powerful Spirit of peace he felt while being confirmed.  It really shows what strong faith they have already, and how years of church knowledge is not necessary for a testimony of the truth of Christ´s gospel.  After all, a testimony is not something complicated. And as taught in Alma 32, all we need to recieve such a testimony is a true desire to believe.  Everything we have in this life is a gift from God.  The only thing that is truly ours, is our will.  If we give that one, small possession we have to our Father in Heaven, He will work miracles in our lives.  Hopefully everyone else had a good week as well, an I´ll write again next week!
