Padillaaaaa’s!!!

28 03 2016

This was such a great week! Easter, baptisms, and transfers! It ended with some sad goodbyes but that’s part of being a missionary. Fortunately, the goodbyes are only temporary!

First off! Karlee and Joshua got baptized! It was an awesome baptism! It was cool to have their baptism on Easter. We remembered the resurrection of Christ and Him coming up out of the grave and we also were able to celebrate because Karlee and Joshua came up out of the water and have started their new life in following Jesus Christ! The room was packed and they had tons of family attending. I still remember the first time I meet Karlee and Joshua. It was my 1st week in Lake Elsinore. Their family is amazing. I’m going to miss them sooo much 😦

This week I studied, day by day, the last week of Jesus Christ’s life. It was powerful. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fully comprehend how He could love each of us so much as to go through what He went through but I am eternally grateful. He is my King, Redeemer, Savior, Lord, and Best Friend. Jesus Christ performed countless miracles. He healed the sick. He took care of the poor and needy. He established his church. He was the Master teacher. He loved His friends, neighbors, enemies. He wrought out a perfect and infinite atonement through which we can all be forgiven, strengthened and perfected, and one day resurrected.

John 21

25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

BUT….still there were those that did not believe. After all that He did.

Isaiah 53

3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4 ¶Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

He was despised and rejected. Despised means that they regarded him to be unworthy of notice or consideration. They thought of Him as worthless. To be rejected means that they thought of Him as not good enough for some purpose. To be discarded as useless or unsatisfactory. Some people still do the same.

Even through the rejection that He faced He never uttered a word of complaint. People regarded him as worthless and useless. They spat upon him. They mocked him. They hung him on the cross which was thought to be the most painful and humiliating form of execution. Yet He submitted to the Father’s will. But most importantly, He lives today!!

I’m so thankful for my Savior. I love Him. I’m honored, proud, and lucky to be able to say I know that my Redeemer lives. I’m grateful for this past Easter season to reflect on His atonement and to help others come to a knowledge and understanding of all that He has to offer them.

Well that’s all for this week! I hope that everyone has had a great Easter! Love you all!

Have a great week!

Love,
