Spiritual experiences I had this week:
Elder E and I were asked by the sisters to give them a blessing, and I have never spoken by the spirit in such a way. It was an amazing experience. Next, we took our morning on Saturday to go to a Catholic girl’s school across the street and served them by cleaning classrooms, gardens, and windows. I got to bless the sacrament in Spanish and bear my testimony on fast Sunday in Spanish too. Both were amazing and strengthening experiences to me. We got to fast for 24 hours whether we wanted to or not, which is one of the first times I have attempted this, and it is a good thing to try out. I also memorized my first scripture in Spanish, which is Nephi 3:7.
Elder E is teaching me sleight of hand tricks when we have down time and I’m getting pretty good, so watch your wallets when I get back home haha 🙂 I haven’t had to buy anything that I forgot, and I have about a million pounds of books to haul with me now. Please keep sending pictures of your adventures together and just of home! I love you all so much and I pray for you in English and Spanish every day.
I testify that the gift of tongues is real and that there are no coincidences in this world. God is real and he knows us and loves us so much that He sacrificed his Son for us. And that wasn’t easy, but he did it willingly because He loved us so much that He couldn’t bear to not be able to live with us again. God loves us so much.
I love you all so much and I hope you are all doing well.
I love you,
Elder Nathan Searle
