Gods infinite love

Denis was baptized this week (: He passed his interview with President and showed up early on Friday afternoon with a huge smile, so excited to be baptized. It was beautiful to see everyone dressed in white. There were 6 baptisms in total. 
Brandy... This week we left Brandy. My heart broke again as so many times it has. He is 17 and still wants to live his life. He told us he didn't want to change. These are the hardest times when Satan rages rampant. But I have hope that one day soon he will be baptized. 
Sullana is progressing. We had Victoria attend church yesterday. She is the older sister of one of our recent converts and she truly in searching fo the truth. Each lesson we´ve had with her so far is so spiritual. We continue to find many good people to teach and our ward is helping us a lot. Hna. Arce is my supporting angel. I truly believe that God placed her in my life at a very crucial time and I feel privileged to work along side her. 

This week I was feeling a little down being overwhelmed with how much I lack, but it was so interesting. As i studied the words of King Benjamin, and Romans 8, I was starting  to understand a little more of the infinite love of our Father in Heaven. King Benjamin spoke of our own nothingness. How literally we are worth nothing because we serve, but we mess up, but when we do good, God blesses us, so we really just are in SUPER debt with him. But in Romans it teaches a beautfiul doctrine of his love
"Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
3What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us allthings?
 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."
 God in His infinte love didn't even hold back his only Begotten Son. He gave us Him and gives us more. And if God opts for us on His team and asks that we, in our infinte weakness be part of his love, who else matters? Because of Christ, we can know of our infinite worth, no matter how many times we fall down or screw up or just get down. God is on our side and he cheers us on and picks up the dropped ball and strengthens our feeble knees. That is why I will continue to follow His example, here and wherever I go. Because Gods love has no limits, neither should mine. 
Thank you family for showing me love without limits. I miss and love you and Im glad to hear that everyone is safe and sound. Glory to God in the highest. Peace on earth good will to men. 
Yes I am ready for Christmas ahhahah love you guys,
