I would give my lice for you...

On Wednesday, I went on exchanges with another sister in her area.  It just so happens to be that Allan, a recent convert of mine from Sanchez Mira, moved there to live with his family.  It was so good to meet with him and to also teach his mother and sister about the gospel.  The gospel is turning full circle in the life of Allan.  When I first taught him in Sanchez, I quickly learned that his biggest fear of being baptized was persecution from his family and the responsibility of becoming a covenant-keeping member of the Church.  Now he has no worries; months later his family is accepting the same gospel into their own lives. This does not mean the entire Unida family will become members of the church tomorrow, but a long and wonderful process has begun.  It started with Allan months ago and the greatest blessings are yet to come. 

Allan paid the cost of discipleship, and we all do.  We have to be courageous, whetherpeople are looking or not.  I know that the blessings will come when we are faithful unto the Lord and courageous in standing for truth.  In Joshua 1:9, we read, "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the  Lord  thy God  is with thee whithersoever thou goest."  The Lord was not only speaking to Joshua there; he was speaking to all of us. 
 I love you all!
