Hiiiiii my beautiful parents? kumusta po kayo? mo fefe hake? malo aupito emaili ki au. I am so blessed to be able to receive an email and counsel from my parents because I know some others don’t so I am truly grateful. How is family prayer, scripture study and family home evening? I know it would of been a busy week for you guys the past week but please don’t forget the things that are so important for our eternal family.
Well this week was full of rain, travels but of course blessings. We had 5 week training follow up in Cauayan with President and Sister Hiatt which was good. I learnt alot of how I can be a better servant of the Lord. We then had splits with our Sister Training Leaders on Friday so yep travels again because there so far from where we stay we literally go out of our zone but it was really good I was able to work with Sister Randell and Sister Carbonel. Man they are such good servants of the Lord and really know there purpose. I learnt so much from each of them and I was super blessed to learn and experience different things. From there we went straight to our area the furthest part of our area and worked there it was good and we were just happy to teach and meet new people. We met a mother and her child, she opened up on how her husband was killed leaving her and 5 children which was super sad but nothing was greater then sharing with her that families can be together forever and just seeing her eyes fill with tears!! I am so grateful that I am able to be an instrument in sharing with my brothers and sisters the message from our loving Heavenly Father!!
Ward Council Meeting ( my ward mission leader asked for corn beef he tasted it in his mission from one of his companions and it was the nicest corn beef he has tasted apparently he was talking about the Palms corn beef)
So it was Sunday (my favourite day of the week) in which we were able to renew our covenants which is always a teary and heart touching time)Our Recent Convert shared her testimony which was such a spirit felt moment she just bore a pure testimony!!! after church we had our ward council meeting being first Sunday and then half way through the meeting we recieved a phone call from one of our active members crying and saying they need help evacuating from there house as it was flooded because of the rain. We left the meeting early with 3 YSA and we got changed then straight to rescue haha man even though I was so hungry and thirsty I can honestly testify that when you are looking more outward and not inward you never need to worry. We were soaked head to toe but got the job done. The church has been opened and will probably stay open for those really effected, to evacuate. Such a blessing to see the 3 YSA waiting at church as “stand by” to help evacuate others. I wish we could do so too but we are on the Lord’s time and had to get back to work. Well after a big busy week I was still able to see the lords tender mercy for me and I am truly blessed.
Helping our members evacuate
This week my studies were amazing, but something that kept standing out to me was Prayer!! Something so simple but can be taken so differently. Prayer something I ask people to do all the time (Members, Investigators and even you all) but I guess I didn’t even know myself what it really was. Because we as missionaries pray all the time. I felt at times I was just praying in vain and it was repetitive, so i remembered reading something from a elder i cant remember but he said when we pray we should be seeking counsel and not just talking. So much in my prayers I just talk and expect him to answer after, but I have experienced and learnt that if we speak to our heavenly father like we are seeking counsel he can answer our prayers when we are still on our knees we just have to recognize and listen to his still small voice. I couldn’t see myself going without an hour without praying and it is honestly so easy to do just needs real intent!! Prayer is the key to open revelation and guidance for each of us that money, power or pride can’t buy. It is the way we can tell our loving Heavenly Father that we love him and are so thankful for him. So I challenge you all this week to please pray and do so with real intent. Don’t just talk to him but listen. When you don’t feel like praying pray until you feel like doing so. I know that he will answer you and protect you because we are his children!! We just need to do our part to work out our salvation.
