Maupay na kulop ha iyo ngatanan!
Kamusta man kamo!? I'm doing great! Going on the last week of the cycle still here in Catbalogan, my third area and I love it! The people here are amazing and I'm FOR SURE going to cry on transfer day.
This past week we had MLC, which means travelling to Tacloban and having a meeting in the mission home with other STLs and Zone Leaders, which is always fun. Then we had our Zone Training meeting the next day in Calbayog. Grabe kapoy ha pagsakay ha van. Pero ok la, nakasurvive gihap. :) There was this really good talk given by President Gordon B. Hinckley called "And Peter Went Out and Wept Bitterly." ( https://www.lds.org/general-
conference/1979/04/and-peter- went-out-and-wept-bitterly? lang=eng&_r=1) You should all read it. We all sometimes fall short. The tragic story of "Strong starters and weak finishers." It is never too late to change so long as we are still alive here on this earth, but that doesn't mean that we can wait to change. Heavenly Father doesn't force us into heaven. It's through our faith AND works, and through the Atonement of Jesus Christ that we are able to return to them. But that all depends on us personally. It depends on you. Siring pa, "What lack I yet?"
Right now, Sister Russon and I are teaching this amazing family of Investigators. There are 10 kids and some have their own families now! We found them during our 2nd week as a companionship and they just really get it! Every time we go back to teach them, they keep inviting their family and friends to join in the lessons., we taught about the 10 Commandments, reading from Exodus 20, to more than 20 people!! In that one house!!!
I love missionary work. :)
Speaking of, we also went and cleaned the church in the morning. morning we had a zone activity in Calbayog. have a specialized training in Tacloban!! So much travelling!
I love you. Pray always, keep the faith, and cherish your loved ones. Lets all help each other finish strong.
