So there’s this old guy that lives close by to us. And he fixes and tailors clothes. And we like to call him the Ilong Ranger….. because “ilong” in Tagalog means “nose”…. And wowie I kid you not, this man has the most MASSIVE NOSE I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A HUMAN BEING.
But hey, he’s kind and he fixes our clothes. So he’s great.
So other things that happened this week…
We encountered that one crazy person last week. *shiver* Yeah she’s still. Hm. Interesting.
Oh this happened. I gave a talk yesterday in Sacrament… that was terrifying. Luckily, I have a Tagalog PMG, so I just read a story from there and tried to connect to and make it flow with my broken Tagalog. The Zone Leaders were like “WOW YOU’RE TAGALOG IS SO GOOD” But I don’t know if they realize that more than half my talk was just a story I read from PMG. So Ssssshhh…. Secret.
We’ve been doing lots of contacting and lots of finding. And I know without a doubt that the Heavenly Father is at the helm of this work and is leading it forward. Many people that we’ve talked to have been receptive to us returning to teach them, and we’ve run into random people that have been taught in the past that want us to return to teach them again. It’s amazing knowing that Heavenly Father is preparing these people for us to teach and talk to.
I don’t know if I’ve already said this, but never in my life have I ever felt the Spirit more abundantly in my life. I massively regret disregarding the importance of many spiritual things and opportunities that I might have missed in the past, because I know now, stronger than ever, the importance of God’s plan. More than ever, I know the importance of this work, the importance of this life, the importance of living the gospel, the importance of reading the scriptures daily, the importance of sincere prayer, and the list goes on. THIS CHURCH AND THIS WORK IS THE PINAKAMAHALGANG BAGAY SA BUHAY NATIN. It's super important.
That would be it for this week.
Mahal ko po kayo!
PS Yeah I'm sending this a day late because the internet was ridiculously slow yesterday and the internet server kept cutting out.... yeah. It was frustrating. Heavenly Father is still teaching me the attribute of "patience".
