This week Sister Tanes and I studied a lot about the Plan of Salvation and it came up a lot in church and in our lessons throughout the week. My gratitude for the Savior and the Atonement has grown so much this past week. I don't think I'll ever be able to adequately express my gratitude for the Savior and how much His Atonement has influenced my life. I'm just grateful that I still have seven and a half months to tell as many people as I can here in the Philippines about the Atonement and Christ's Gospel, our Heavenly Father's glorious Plan for us, and the Restoration and how it can truly change their lives...for eternity. This is truly the best message and work ever. I love it with all my heart.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Thanks for all the love and support. Know how much I love each and every one of you and I'm so grateful to have such incredible family and friends in my life.
Palangga ko kamo!!
All my love,
PS Sister Tanes taught me a word... Nakakapagpabagabag. Try saying that 10 times fast. It's the word you use to explain something that is causing you to worry. I think saying the word itself could do that! haha
PPS I tried quail eggs. Yes. I really did. Sister Tanes cooked them and made me try it. And they're actually not too bad!

Jessica told us that the fabric to make this dress came from Samoa. Her last companion, Sister Fanene gave it to her. Nancy (Mark's Mom), then made the dress for Jessica. She is surrounded by such giving and loving people who have been such a blessing in her life.
