Wow, this week was awesome and SO much happened!
Thursday, Ping-Ping, an 18 year old preparing for her mission, worked with us to show us the area. We met with some members to get to know them so that we can get to know the area better, and they are all so awesome! We met this amazing 80 year old woman named Aurilia and she was just the sweetest thing. We shared a scripture with her and sang a hymn, and the spirit was just so strong. :) We also taught Jero and Jerold Castol lesson 1. They are brothers and were very open to hear our message.
This week was so busy and fun and the first time I've felt like the language is actually clicking in my brain! It's amazing how the gift of tongues works! Sister Canimo is so loving and hard working, and I'm so excited to learn from her. We get along so well and I'm afraid this transfer is going to fly by too quickly.
I have seen the hand of the Lord working in my life so much this week and I KNOW he knows the desires of our hearts. I know He answers all of our prayers and has a perfect plan for us. It might take a bit of time before we see why we experience what we do, but once we look back, it's amazing to see how the Lord has shaped us and helped us grow, and for the blessings He wants to give us. He loves us so much and wants the very best for His children. I'm so grateful to be serving Him full time right now. There's no place I'd rather be. Yes, it's hard, but I'm learning so much that I know is strengthening me to be a better person, that will help me for the rest of my life. I know this Gospel is true and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us. They are ALWAYS there for us, every step of the way.
Thanks for all your love and support back home. I have the best family and friends in the entire world and I love you all so much! Keep being amazing and I'll talk to you next week!!
