I just barely had this awesome experience! So, I have been really struggling. I have literally (not figuratively but literally) felt like something was missing inside of me. My chest just had this feeling like there’s a hole right in the middle. I know what it is. It was the missing companionship of the Holy Ghost. I didn’t know how I could go on without the spirit. I was feeling so down and I really just wanted to leave here. So, while my companion was emailing, I started to pray. I’ve been praying every day, but this prayer was different. This was a “I don’t know what to do. I can’t go on.” type of prayer. I humbled myself and just opened my mouth to whisper a prayer. As soon as I said the word “Father”, the Spirit comforted me. I was completely encircled in the comfort of the Spirit. It was such a relief to feel that again. Less than 24 hours without the spirit, but I had gotten so down. Now, I feel great. I know my Father in Heaven loves me. I know that He knows me perfectly and is waiting to bless me. I just had to ask with the requirements in Moroni 10:4. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and I know that He has felt and suffered for my sins. I know that because of His selfless and loving act: The Atonement. I can be reconciled to God. I can receive comfort, help, and strength to keep going. I love this gospel. I love my Savior and my Father in Heaven. I’m so grateful to be here in Peru. I’m glad that I continue to learn more of the Gospel. (It’s nice to break from learning the language and learn something else at times!) I love this Gospel! I know that I am where I need to be. God lives and loves all of His children, not just a few. We do missionary work because God wants all of His children back (not just the ones that already have the Gospel). Give my love to the Family! Gotta run!
