WHAT A FABULOUS WEEK.


WHAT A FABULOUS WEEK. Everyone. Let me just tell you this week. was. great. It was so exhausting and so happy. Side note, can I just mention again how much I am so in love with the philippines? Ok. I just love the phillippines....SO MUCH. Kay Im done now. 

First of all, happy thanksgiving to all reading this! I have been feeling extra blessed this week doing the Lords work and honestly. I have seen more than one miracle.. countless!! This morning as we were pumping water from the well for our bucket showers to bring into the bathroom I was thinking...at least more often than not (even though there is still no flushing toilets) we have running water to wash the dishes ect...*blessing*...

And then there was this one time this week...oh wait make that 2 TIMES this week we were able to teach a less active brother (the first times) who completely opened up to us about concerns ect and the greatest blessing was him realizing what changes he needs to make in his life and come back to shurch with his wife...and then him sharing some of his testimony with us and his desire to go to the temple with his wife to be sealed...*blessing* Like borther, that is why we are here to help you and sister!! 

I COULD GO ON AND ON I REALLY COULD! I have seen so many miracles happen this week in this area...We have had so many teaching opportunities. Things I haven't seen happen in..well since I arrived here have happened. The Lords hand/help is truly in this work. 

This week sister haider and I were able to find a new investigator and I am pretty sure I was so excited to teach her I almost shared lessons one two AND three...restoration, plan of salv. and every other doctrine in the church...She was asking so many questions and really wanted to know...it was like cloud 9. Having someone this week actually WANT to listen to what we have to say and ACCEPT us in their house. It was such a miracle to me. 

There is so much to be grateful for...I will forever be eternally grateful for my wonderful family and sweet parents, who have been the most perfect examples for me. I am so grateful for this gospel. These are the most important things in my entire life. My heart is SO full! Have a great week everyone..Remember to count your blessings! 

LOVE YOU ALL TO THE MOON AND BACK!

Anther WOnderful Week in San Juan!

My father requested I write a few experiences spiritual and otherwise. so hereeee we go mga katapid.

This week was...another wonderful week in San Juan. Somedays I still feel like I am dreaming all of this and at any moment I will wake up...maybe because the past week we have been a little tired....and I probably have been sleep walking or something. we have had our kapit bahay (neighbors) doing karaoke until all hours of the nights and then there is that one chicken farm next door...and then the dogs... But its all good it makes things interesting. Mission life is the greatest. Of course as the family knows, my companion and I have been trying really hard to help this area and our members to be strengthened. 

we have actually been able to visit a lot this week and have had some really wonderful lessons. The spirit was strong. What I have noticed the most this week is the influence of the book of mormon... as we have been teaching from it and helping others to learn and apply its teachings. I have come to understand more I feel on my mission the meaning of "keystone". (does that sounds weird? thats ok.) But really think about that, the book of mormon is the Keystone of our religion....why do we need to know that is true? Because if the book of mormon is true, then joseph smith is a true prophet called of god, and this really is the gospel restored in its fullness. I know god has given us the bok of mormon for our time right now. It applies to our lives and we can come closer to Christ by abiding by its precepts. I know we can come to a knowledge of its truthfulness by reading and praying about it. Its our duty and responsibility as members to spread this book to all corners of the earth...meaning we need to to share this book to our loved ones and friends...so they can also come to know of the fullness of the gospel.

Being able to teach this message to the people of the philippines is the greatest privilege I have ever received. I know this gospel is true. 

I am so grateful for you all.
I love you all so much to the moon and back!
