Happy Mother's Day!!!
Just a quick shout-out to all of the mothers and women in my life who have blessed me so much and taught me to walk in the ways of truth. Thanks so much for your inspiring examples and for teaching me to follow Jesus Christ. I hope to emulate you and develop the love that you have:) Especially you, Mom!! Every time I think of you, I think of the mother's of the stripling warriors. Alma 56:47-48 Thank you for raising me the way you did and continue to do:)
This week was transfer week and it was CRAZY!! Thank heavens Sister Pau is my companion!! She is so full of life and spunk and has such a positive attitude!! If it wasn't for her, I probably would've been a wee bit overwhelmed with everything we had going on!!
On Friday, Sister Osumo and I got to give training to the other STLs which was super fun! We have an AMAZING group of sisters! We then got to attend MLC and then met with President and Sister Revillo to plan for our Sister's Conference that is coming up this Wednesday. It is going to be sooo fun!!
Sister Pau and I got to work in our area ALLLLL day on Sunday! Sister Maricel worked with us as well and it was great! We found 2 new investigators! As we were talking to one of them, Erwin, he said that he knew a little bit about Mormons. He then went onto say, "Naniniwala kayo sa sports, di ba?" Translated as, "You believe in sports, right?" Uhhhh... Noo... It was so funny!! He then went onto explain that all of the chapels here in the Philippines have basketball courts outside, so he thought that we believed in playing sports... Oh it was so funny!!
This past week, we were not able to visit the Gimena Family and they didn't come to church yesterday. We went to visit them and they were really sad that they chose not to come. They had lost their desire a little bit to continue, but as we taught them yesterday, their desire came back one-hundred fold, and they are determined to be baptized as a family. We taught about eternal families and the Spirit really touched their hearts. I know they will be baptized.
Sister Glory, the LA we found also came to church yesterday and had an AMAZING time!! Please pray for her husband that we can teach them! I can just see them as a forever family!!! Ahh, they are the cutest!!
I love you all!! Take care and I will talk to you soon!!
