Dear family and friends,
Hello! How are you? It has been another great week here in Maribago and we have had many challenges and successes. It is amazing that as we are willing, prepared and worthy of the Spirit. Miracles will happen as we believe and are obedient. I have had a great week, Sister Allen and I are learning many things and are doing all that we can to progress this work. A favorite miracle of mine this week is the Moreno family(3). We taught them all together last evening. It is very rare that we teach whole families. The Spirit was so strong, and we pray that they can recognize the truth and will be willing to act on their faith.
“We can alter the face of the earth one family and one home at a time through charity, our small and simple acts of pure love.”—Sister Anne C. Pingree
This week we had exchanges with the Sisters in Mandaue 1 (1), Sister Obedoza and I worked together. She is Sister Serapion's trainer and is doing her best. They are great missionaries and have peace in their companionship. One focus that they have had since this past transfer has been finding new investigators. They tend to go back to investigators who are not interested or have no potential to progress. Sister Obedoza is really great, her fear is in the first approach, especially in their area in Mandaue city. She is doing a great job and setting a good example for Sister Serapion.
We also had exchanges with Lapu Lapu 1 Sisters (2). They both had a rough transfer with disobedient companions who were about to return home, so they are very happy to have each other now. They are diligent and obedient. Sister Reyes and Sister Capoy are so wonderful! One of their goals is to be dignified, true representatives of Jesus Christ.
Sister Allen and I have had a goal this week to try something new... So we ate Avocado gelato! Haha! Honestly, much better than you would think! Try something new this week! Have a wonderful week in paradise!
