The week where I have like no time left to send this e-mail

So, this week has been pretty good. It's been good weather, we have found some new families, the people we have found in the last few weeks are doing really good and are really liking what we teach, and only a few people have told us not to come by anymore. Nothing much to complain about. 

This week, I also had an awesome opportunity to hear directly from the Mission President about some things! (it's a sweet perk about being a Zone Leader). But, he specifically trained us on the importance of the family, so I'mma talk about the importance of the family to God.

So, when God made everything, he made a family. He first made literally everyone who ever existed or ever will exist in the form of a spiritual family. He made a place for that family to live on: Earth. Then, he started that family physically by making Adam and Eve, a husband and a wife, and designing them in a way that they can increase that family. He gave them the commandment to have children (in other words, increase the family). They, however, sinned, making all of God's family fallen from his presence, unable to return to him without help. God likes his family (us) and wants all of his family to come back to live with him. So, God send his Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, (our older and awesome brother) to the world to die for our sins and resurrect for us, giving us the way to come back to him. Not only that, God also gave us the ability to keep our earthly families together through the power of his Son. In holy temples, we can seal (or bind together) our families. By God's power, we can make it so death doesn't seperate us permanently. Marriage isn't just "'til death" but for Time and All Eternity (aka forever)! How wonderful!!!! That sealing power is found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the church that I am currently serving. I want to bring the Good news of Eternal Families to everyone! and I know that what I just said is all true.

Have a great week!
