1 April 2013 Happy Easter

Hello Family and Friends,
Happy EASTER!!! This Easter was a good day. We had a pretty crazy week this past week with all the appointments. It was pretty good though. On Tuesday was a super cool day of work! We had sooo much success that day and we found so many people that were soo prepared and it was fantastic! It was very surprising because everyone was actually here and not on vacation. This past week was semana santa (holy week), and it usually (like last year) is the time when everyone goes on vacation. But nope a lot of people were in their homes. So we took advantage that it was Easter and so we taught them a lot.
We also had our interviews with the President. We hopped on a bus to Monterrey on friday morning. We went and had a very productive interview with the president. In my interview, he asked me to share my testimony about Jesus Christ and so I did and wow I felt very special in those moments. The spirit was very strong and I definitely felt a love very strong for my savior Jesus Christ.
I am very glad that I decided to go on a mission because I do get the opportunity to represent Jesus Christ. I do have this opportunity as well to change myself and have a better, more fortified life. Before the mission, I am not going to lie, I didnt feel tooo sure on going on a mission still. I didnt really believe too deeply in the religion because I never really read the book of mormon or knew much. But now actually living the gospel and actually changing, I feel happier and I feel a lot more confident as a make my move towards the future with a career and a family. So I am super thankful to have had this opportunity to be here on the mission and to represent Jesus Christ.
Remember in this season the real reason of Easter. Remember what Jesus Christ has done for you! Remember that everyone has the opportunity to have life after this one through Jesus. And believe in him because he will make your life a lot better.
And for those that do not believe him, be like him then. And then you will believe. If you dont believe, its because you havent been like him to see the blessings God gives to those that follow Jesus. So remember in this time period to serve, love and follow Christ so that God may bless.
Super good spiritual week this week and I am hoping for more. I hope you all are being blessed, and I hope you all had an amazing Easter. I love you all and thank you for all your support. Take care,
Elder Justin Powell
