Something short and sweet...
On Saturday Diana and Robert got married. It was a matrimonio masivo "massive marriage" so like 20 couples got married at the same time. But it was so cool, I loved seeing the look on Roberts face, he was sooo happy. It turns out that Robert always talked about how he wanted to go to the temple, so that is why Diana started listening to the missionaries. When we were heading out to the wedding, we said a prayer beforehand. And Robert thanked God for helping him to keep this commandment, so that they can prepare to go to the temple. Loved it. He has changed SO much it amazed me, I'm SO happy for them!
And Diana got baptized yesterday! She is incredible. I love seeing the influence of one baptism. For her desire to learn about the gospel, her husband was able to come back to the church with a stronger testimony than ever. Her dad is now interested in the church, and in December she wants to go to the temple to be baptized for her mom, and in a year go to the temple. It is a huge testimony to me of how much the gospel blesses families, Diana and Robert have overcome so many things in these past few months, and now they are better than ever and blessing their families too. Love seeing how happy they are. :)
Everyday I realize more and more how incredible the gospel is. I know that we are part of God's kingdom here on earth, and we are so blessed! But everyone has the same potential to receive the gospel blessings. That is something that helps me, thinking that God knows the potential of each one of us, the potential to become like Him. I know that the Atonement is so personal for each of us, and we can each reach that potential.
