Well, this week was one for the books.
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE WEEK. Ah every second.
I feel soo blessed.
On Sunday during relief society my kasama and I were all talking in tagalog ect. cuz you know thats what we do and the girl behind us asked where we were going. We looked at her name tag and HER DAD IS OUR MISSION PRESIDENT! How coincidental is that?!? So crazy! So we talked to her for a little bit, she was sweeter than sweet, and then we took a picture with her so when we get to the pines we can show her parents.
Sunday night we watched Legacy....and everyone was laughing....SOMEONE TELL ME WHATS SO FUNNY ABOUT THIS HEARTFELT CHEESY MOVIE!!! Elders are so 18!! they are all hootin when Eliza and that guy kiss. Like it was such a tender moment. I didn't see what was so funny. Alas, everyone laughed through the whole thing. Maybe I just felt so connected cuz I watched it throughout my childhood...yep I bet thats it...
It was about the sister missionaries in the Philippines and what happened to them when the typhoon hit. The lord truly watched over his missionaries. In such a devastating disaster...every single missionary was accounted for after the hurricane hit. Anyways try to find it if you can and read it! & Pray for the people in the Philippines they need our prayers. I don't even know the people there yet, but my heart breaks for them. I feel like I have so much love for them already.
Tuesday devotional we heard from Elder Audukatis and his wife. Beautiful talks, and I especially loved what she said because I felt like it applied to me specifically. She talked about the spirit of the gospel being optimistic. But then she was totally realistic about it saying, "if you have a 'bad' day, just keep quite, and smile because the day will pass". But I also think there really are no "bad" days, only hard days. When I was reading in my scriptures the other day (well everyday, so really it can be any day you want it to be) I had written by that one scripture "cheer up your hearts for I have over come the world" (I don't remember what that scripture was) but I had written "If we are close to God, a trial=an opportunity". I truly believe this with all my heart. I know the Lord is so aware of all of us individually.
Thursday I spent the majority over the toilet. Priesthood blessings work. Priesthood is real. don't worry, I AM SO GREAT NOW!
Alright now to the exciting part: Friday...
I GOT MY FLIGHT PLANS!!!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!
One week from Monday we will be flying to the Philippines!!! First to Detroit and then straight to Manila (yeah calculate that, its a long plane ride)
I am SO stoked I wish I could express in words.
We celebrated (the roomies and I) by having a little "party party" (say in Filipino accent) hung streamers, balloons, candy, etc, it seriously was the best time. Plus it was p-day eve which made it even better. I feel so blessed to be having this experience. I honestly have the best roommates ever, I love them so much. We are all best friends and it will be so hard to leave them. Our whole district really is like a family.
Welp, I love you all more than anything in the whole world.
Alam ko po na totoo po ang simbihan.
Alam ko po na totoo po ang ebanghelyo.
Alam ko po na salita ng Diyos ang Aklat ni Mormon.
Alam ko po na mahal po tayo ng diyos.
alam ko po na sa pamamagitan ng kapangyarihan ng espirito santo, maradama natin ang pagmamahal ng Diyos.
This gospel is so true.
The Lord is SO aware of all of us individually.
MAHAL KITA!!! INGOT PO!!
Love, sis goooooo
