5th  September  2016

We have had a smashing week this week.

We were so busy between teaching and travelling that we didn't get much time to talk to some people. So that is definitely something we are going to work on this week.

Well I guess something That I learnt this week comes from 2 Nephi 7:10-11

 10 Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness and hath no light?
 11 Behold all ye that kindle fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks, walk in the light of your fire and in the sparks which ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand—ye shall lie down in sorrow.

So I was thinking about it and one of the things that I have learnt from this particular scripture is that We have the Fire of testimony and we have the spark of Hope that is ignited everytime we bear that testimony. And as we walk down life's dark track our testimony can light the way so that we may be able to experience peace and Salvation. through He who is the Biggest Light (Christ) we can be filled with Light and be guided step by step back to the presence of our Father in Heaven.

Love you All. Ka Kite

Comos Da?

31st August  2016

How are all of you. mabuti?

that's Awesome.
       Dahil this week nagkaroon kami ng mga bagong misyonero dumating sa misyon mula sa                     Pilipinas. Ang pangalan niya ay Elder Afable. Kaya ako at Elder Foster ay ngayon sa isang              tatlong paraan sa kanya.

       (Google translation:Since this week we had a new missionaries come from missions in the                 Philippines. His name is Elder Afable. So me and Elder Foster is now in a three way with her.)

or for those who are not learned in Tagalog and Google translate
Because this week we had a new missionary come into the mission from the Philippines. His name is Elder Afable. So me and Elder Foster are now in a three way with him.


So yeah. We got a call on Tuesday telling us to come to the mission office cause you are picking up a golden.

So yeahp. Threeway again. This time though we are learning English because we have listened to Elder Afable and he is better than we are. Actually Funny Story

We were at Bruce's house (Part Member family)
And we were teaching the lesson and Elder Afable teaches his bit and says I'm sorry if my english isn't very good. Too which Bruce (who is a very straight up guy) says. Your English is really good at least I can understand you unlike this one here (Pointing to Elder Foster) It caused me to laugh a bit.

We have had a Good week.

Ok the 6:6 Challenge
1 Nephi is to write that which is of worth in our Journals(Daily)
2 Nephi is to Set up a standard among those around you of who you are and what you believe (Daily)
Jacob is to Listen to the word of God, and The prophets and Harden not your hearts (Daily)
Mosiah is to walk in the ways of the Lord and Keep the commandments (Daily)
Alma is to Once in a Month fast for those who don't know God and to pray Daily for them
Helaman is to preach unto the people. Talk to a friend about church (Weekly/Monthly)
3 Nephi is to establish peace in the home, community, etc you live by being a leader (Weekly)
Mormon is to Gather everyone together to read from the sacred records (Daily)
Ether is to Overcome temptation everyday and let the Lord guide you. (Daily)

After doing these things for 6 weeks and 6 Days (Start on a Monday) the 7 Week mark is to look back and reflect on the changes that you have seen within yourself.

Well another one down

22nd August  2016

Another week gone by and everyone is reminding me of how little time I have left. I guess I sort of deserve it a little though because I have been doing it a lot.

Actually you know one of the things my mum asked me this week. When is your finish date? Talk about trunkiness. Oh well she is my mum.

Well I have learnt a lot this week.

I have a challenge for everyone. I call it the 6:6 challenge

The rules or explanation
For 6 weeks and 6 days you will do what the following scriptures invite you to do. There are weekly goals and daily goals.

The Scriptures are
1 Nephi 6:6
2 Nephi 6:6
Jacob 6:6
Mosiah 6:6
Alma 6:6
Helaman 6:6
3 Nephi 6:6
Mormon 6:6
Moroni 6:6

But those are the scriptures I invite you to read them and then email me back what you think each one represents (in other words the challenge to do)

I will explain more Next week and then you can start it on Monday 29th if you choose to accept. I promise you that as you do this you will be able to find hidden meanings and messages in the scriptures.

I love you all and wish you all the best for this week.
In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Week... Who cares.

15th  August  2016

Well this week was good, got to meet a lot more of the ward members and also got to know some of the investigators and part member families very well.

one in Particular is the Johnston family, The mum and the Oldest Kids are baptized and the Husband has been having the missionaries over since 1996. So we are going to work with them to see what we can do to get him baptized, hopefully before I go home.

have had some fun this week getting to know some of the people in this area. We taught a 13yr old girl, Kadiatu, the Plan of Salvation and she liked it, then we invited her to Church. On sunday we went around to follow up but... She was still sleeping. She was ready by 8am though she just woke up after we were there. Oh well she is still pretty keen to come and we are seeing her tomorrow. So should be good.

Have had an alright rest of the week. We were able to work with the members a lot and even have been invited to the Stake President's house twice for Dinner and teaching another Part Member Family. So the work is progressing. And it going to keep progressing!

Love you all hope you have a good week.

Well I don't know what I am supposed to write because I only wrote on Friday.

However yesterday we got to meet our mission President I guess officially and he did a little introductory thing with his wife who had a lot of photos for us to look at.

He also did a training and it was truly powerful. Well I love you all and I hope to share more next week.
