|Elder Moya and Hermana Phipps|
Well I got good news for any of you who were doubting. God answers prayers. Especially every single one of you guys who are praying for me and my investigators. GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS.
I want to talk about how much God loves us. And what he has done to show his love. During this week and the week past I have been pondering much on how much God loves me. I was kind of doubting the love and power he has given me. I haven’t seen too much success with investigators this mission. But I have seen a whole lot of different people come to Christ or find their way back. I have been praying hard for strength in my testimony. So I can be the best missionary I can be. I want to be able to speak and teach with the power and authority that is talked about in Doctrine and Covenants. I have been praying hard, combined with the humble, loving prayers from the family and friends, and in Gods timing, he blessed me with one of the most incredible experiences I have ever been a part of in my entire life. This experience means so much to me and I will hold it close to me for a very long time.

This was the most powerful lesson I have ever had. I will never forget this experience. It helped me realize the power and authority we have as missionaries and the mercy and tenderness of God to help his missionaries bring souls unto him. God loves us. He loves every one of us. He is incredible and omnipotent.

He also talked about how we can understand the plan of salvation more each and every time we assist the temple. He shared a story of when Elder Bednar came to the temple. He said that he was with him in one of the rooms and Elder Bednar look at him and said, "President, do you completely understand the Plan of Salvation?" Without waiting for an answer he calmly asked, "would you like to?" and then answered his own question and said, "Me too." Then he explained to the President of the temple that going to the temple brings us closer to the teachings of God through his spirit. He promised that as we attend the temple as constantly as we can the mysteries of that plan will be revealed to us. Knowing that Elder Bednard doesn’t know everything... means we have some things to learn to. I know I am far far far away from the temple but I encourage each and every one of you that read this, to go to the temple. It is a very wonderful blessing that we should all take advantage of.

I am very blessed to have such great support from family and friends. I love each and every one of you that are praying for me and my investigators. Please continue to do so. I am seeing miracles that are so wonderful. I’m so grateful.
