I read through my last weeks letter and I am sorry that I wrote half of it in Spanish, that was not my intention. I will try my hardest not to this week!
I have basically nooooo time but I would like to touch on something very briefly. This week I have been thinking a lot of my own personal conversion. I told my companion yesterday basically that even though I have a very strong testimony of the gospel and the power of this work. I feel a lot happier, BUT I still feel like I am the same Elder Blake who bordered that plane in Miami fifteen months ago. It doesn't bother me but I guess I thought the personal change would but something more, I guess juerastic. (I honestly don't know how to spell anymore I'm sorry). Julia here - translation=drastic. But through the many emails I have received in response to emails I realize that maybe this living the gospel obediently has shaped and molded me into a true servant de Cristo. Yesterday as I was doing my personal study I came a across a scripture in Ezkiel 36 vs 26 y 27 that I had marked many months ago. It reads 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
I have felt that my efforts of trying to live the gospel and developiong my charity is giving me this new heart and spirit. I testify of the blessings of this gospel and I wish I had enough time to write of all the miracles the lord has permitted me to see in this past week.
Con Mucho Amor
