La Semana Santa

In Spanish, "La Semana Santa" means, the Holy Week. The last week of Christ´s mortal life, and the week in which the most important events in the history of the world took place. The Lord´s Atonement, Death, and Resurrection are some of these great events. Here in Perú, la semana santa is a great holiday. Nobody works, everyone is with their family, etc... but something that was really sad for me is the fact that I saw sooo many drunk people.

Some great Videos to see for Easter:
He is Risen: John the Beloved's Witness of the Resurrection
Because of Him (Absolutely Incredible!!!)

Also in this past week my companion, Elder Castro and I Traveled to Cusco for Interviews with President Harbertson. It was a great experience to talk to my mission president, and feel his priesthood keys as he helped my companion with some things that are going on. I really felt his love for us as missionaries. 

I testify of the holy atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that it is the center of our religion, and that thanks to Jesus Christ all can be made right. I love this Church with all my heart, and I love my Savior with all my heart. Christ is the Messiah, the King of Kings, but more importantly, he is my best friend. 

I testify of these things in his holy name, Amen.
