This has been another week full of miracles, especially as Easter approaches! What a wonderful time of year! We had a Family Home Evening with the family of Arjean Dizon, our newest recent convert. She is in a part member family, so in order to build her family support, we are also doing our best to build trust with them. It was amazing to kneel together with them in family prayer. We are praying for their family, especially her parents, for their hearts to soften, and be prepared to receive the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.
As well, Jisel, our long time investigator is returning to Mindanao, and there she has the opportunity to progress the marriage papers of her and Jerry. It has been almost one year, and although we are sad that they have left, Sister Nalawas and I see this as a miracle. Jisel is so ready to be baptized, and this is a result of her genuine faith in Jesus Christ!
This week, we also had the opportunity to join Angel and Cali on a tour of the temple. Angel (16) and Cali (18) are investigating the church and are the younger sisters of Grace (23), a less active member in our ward. They each are so kind and Christ-like! It is such a wonderful opportunity to teach and add to the knowledge that they already have. We are working with each of them for them to do the things necessary to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and endure faithfully to the end. It was Sister Nalawas' first time at the temple as well, so she was very happy to attend!
I hope and pray that all is well for each of you, we are continuing in this great work, and we are improving each day! Thank you for each prayer, each though and each encouraging word. I learn so much from each of you, and I am grateful. I know that Jesus Christ lives. That because of His perfect obedience to the Father, He accomplished His grand mission here on earth. That because of Him, because He lives, we can live again. How amazing is that truth! Hallelujah!
