Thanks and Giving

So to start off this weeks email, I do want to confess something... I am just a little bummed I missed all the great turkey and stuffing. It looked absolutely delicious.... BUT I'M ABSOLUTELY FINE WITH RICE!!  Haha. 

This week has been great. After having the opportunity to go to the beautiful temple in Manilla on Wednesday, it set the tone for the rest of the week! Then on Friday, we got to do some SERVICE! We got to help one of the members in the ward build a house, but because it was in another zone, we were fortunate enough to get permission from President Koster to continue to the service. We traveled to the Morong Zone and it was absolutely pretty there. It was so green with trees, I loved it. After about a 20 min trike ride, we arrived. Then during the service, we shoveled tons of sand and cement powder and rocks into bags for the pouring of the walls and foundation. It is always joyful to serve, I love it so much. "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God"
(Mosiah 2:17). 

On another note, I had the great opportunity to start reading the New Testament personally along with the Doctrine and Covenants! The New Testament is super great. Being able to learn about the Savior's ministry here on this earth is such a blessing!

Also we are seeing alot of progression with a few of our investigators Kristian and Alfredo! They are both openly receiving the Restored Gospel and are getting closer to their Father in Heaven. They both have been smoking for a long time but as we have shared with them the power of prayer, the love of God and the Word of Wisdom, they have been trying their best to stop and they have been improving so much!

I unfortunately dont have any pictures this week, because the computer isnt working, but next week for sure!
