Perez is hard.
Well it has been a very interesting week. We taught alot and had some great lessons. But man do the people have problems here. And we all know if they kept the comandments of God they wouldnt have as much problems but you feel kinda silly teaching hope and obedience and enduring to the end why they tell you all these situations. And you just want to help and take away all their problems but you cant. So emotionally this area has been tough. But especially with the people struggling financially what they need is the gospel. I forgot what Apostle said this but If a person is really poor the best thing you can give them to help is a gospel of Jesus Christ because we know that money does not bring happieness and if we helped them get a job and suddenly they a rich. They still dont have what the need and the next trial that comes they are gonna hurt just as much and be just as sad. Because we know material things dont bring happiness. But Obedience to the laws of the gospel does and it brings blessings and strength. Enough to handle what ever burden you are asked to carry. So yeah I feel silly talking about Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy when someone doesnt even have food to seat. But we know like it says in this scripture
