I'm not sure how many times I've said this but time flies here! Tumatakbo ako sa labas ng oras. But as I'm reflecting on this past week it's been great. On July 4th we had exchanges so I wasn't able to have a feast with my fellow filipinos :(
But I do have a really cool experience that was heart touching to me. During exchanges we went to a family that isnt too active but after we shared a spiritual thought from Alma, and we were leaving, the mother said to me that I reminded her of a missionary that was assigned here before. I asked why, and she said we have the same face, but then she said in English "I feel like you could look into my soul and tell if I was lying, like an angel without a halo". Although thats obviously not what I am, haha, I really was thankful for that moment to kind of reflect on myself and what happened. Because people don't say that you everyday!
Another blessing is that the Babante family, I thinked I told you about, (Brother is a member but his family isn't. They have 3 kids :)) They all attended church on Sunday!! They were just this perfect little family in the back, it was amazing!! We were blessed to have 9 investigators at church yesterday!!! I'm not the best at it, but once I can reflect over each day and look at the blessings I have been given, it makes me tear up to feel the love my Father in Heaven has for me. Even when I'm not perfect and make mistakes, I know that God is perfect and knows what to do to help us.
I have been able to realize more and more that when we work hard to be obedient and do my best the Lord will provide the rest. I know that Jesus Christ lived on this earth to teach His gospel. I also know that he suffered, a suffering far beyond we know as mortals, because He loves us. I know Jesus is the Christ, the Resurrected Lord. This is HIS church, not the church of Mormon, or Joseph Smith, but of Christ. I know the eternal doctrines that are so near to my heart do not come from men, kundi galing sa Diyos. Darn, I mean but they come from God. There's no way I can deny that.--
