Week #41 - Beautiful and Unified: April 18, 2017 – April 24, 2017 (KK East Malaysia)
This week has been the healthiest week of my life! I now live in a 4 sister home, and it is crazy! At least we are unified! We have started a 12 week workout program together, we eat healthy salad and roti susu together, we sing David Archuleta together, we do crazy home remedies (like onions on the feet to detoxify sugar) together, we do makeovers and facials together, and best of all, we are willing to try new things, together.
As for a spiritual thought, one thing that stood out to me this week has been family history work. Oftentimes, we don't think to do this in our free time. We would rather sleep, watch a movie, or go to social media. However, there are many people who are very involved in family history work. When you start, you begin to realize there is something special here. We love our families, especially our immediate families. When we start to research out our ancestors, we discover new things about ourselves. We discover a rich heritage, a heritage focused on creating a better future for their families. I often like to think of it like this, no one wants to be forgotten. When we find our
ancestors, they rejoice. They were once
lost, but are now found. Now that they are found, they rejoice because they
know the joys of the Gospel, and are yearning to enjoy them for themselves.
That's why the temple is so important. When we learn of their sacrifices, we
think, there is nothing we can do to repay them back. However, that is not
true. With the blessings of the Gospel, and temples, we are able to do a work
for them that is invaluable. We are able to give blessings that extend beyond
the veil of death. That is a beautiful blessing that the Gospel brings with the
opportunities we have in this day and age. Family history and going to the
temple are the greatest tools and blessings we have today. Because of them, we
are able to bless our families; because of them, we are able to bless God's
family; and because of them we are able to have eternal families. This is the
work that God has for us. Do it.
