Cassie's Testimony - 06-12-2017

This week Cassie didn't sent home a group letter, she asked me to send out a message.  In my letter to her I had sent here the lyrics to the song "Let it Be".  (Gentri had just released their version of that song and they are her favorite.)  Anyway, her message is in response to those lyrics.   She starts out with expressing their stressful schedule:

Today we are gonna play volleyball as a district so I am gonna pretend that the ball is my stress and I'm just gonna hit it away. Like you said I'm just gonna "Let It Be" and hope for another day. 
I like this part of the song let it be, And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be but I'm gonna change she to He and He being Jesus Christ because there have been so many dark hours here in Peru, so many you don't even know about and every single one I have felt almost like this song saying "in my darkest hour HE is standing in front of me, giving me his wisdom, so i can let it be".

My testimony of my Savior has grown so much here in Peru and this last week I looked back and I saw the progress of my testimony and a lot has been during my time with Hermana Soldevilla, when its been hard and I've had the darkness caving in around me and I decided to fight back, in those moments when I knelt down in prayer and many times through tears and tears and tears I've told my Savior "I accept these words of wisdom, please help me let it be" That's when my testimony has grown. Like the scripture says in 
Ether 12 : 6
And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning thesthings; would show unto thworld that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because
 ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.

I know that this is true because I have gained my testimony in my trials. I don't need to depend on other peoples testimonies now because mine is strong! Ya it took me a lot longer than some other missionaries but unlike some missionaries I can say. I know that this church is true I can say that I know My savior Jesus Christ suffered for my sins. I know all of this and I can testify and not lie. I met a missionary the other day who said I'm still not sure if God exists and it shocked me, but i am so grateful that I know he exists and that really he loves me. You can share this with whoever you want, but I testify with all my heart that Jesus is the Christ, Savior of the world, and this darkness that is around me everyday, I know through the power of my Savior I can see the light again. I know IT's all true and I will never deny it!
Love you all so much!!!!! Thank You so much for all the support!!!!! 
Love Hermana McNamara
