I GOT THE PACKAGE! WOOT!
Thankyou for all the food and the materials and the two rolls of toilet paper (not necessary but still <3)!
The Elders in the apartment were like "Why is all the food healthy food? Are your parents, like, health nuts?" So that was funny. Because yeah we're a generally healthy family.
We had Zone Conference! It was truly a blessing to learn and spend time with all the missionaries on the island of Palawan! And it was especially a blessing to hear words of wisdom from our mission president, President Ostler as well as his wife. They're great.
So here in Narra, I think there's a festival going on for a couple days or something...? Because there are a lot of booths and events and lot's of random things happening that don't usually happen. Also, either these events have caused people to sing more karaoke as part of the festivities, or our neighbors just bought a new karaoke machine. Because from, they're singing drunk karaoke... Ah they're gems. Sometimes it's difficult to study, but all is well.
Hm another random thing: I made a baby cry in a shuttle by looking at it. So apparently I look scary.
This week I'd like to stress the importance of just loving everyone. Sometimes it's easy to look at people and find all the things that we "don't" love about them... because as mortals, we're imperfect. But if we take a step back and ask "Okay, who are we... we're Children of God... these people are my brothers and sisters..." it's easy to cast out negativity.
There's a very good reason why we're commanded to first: Love God. Then Second: Love our neighbors. Because if we do just those two, there wouldn't be any need for other laws, because we'd all just be happy and we'd all be doing the right thing.
So it was a good week. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. The Book of Mormon is true. This work is real.
Alright, I'm out.
Mahal ko kayo!
