Mission Tours

Monday, May 18, 2015

Dear Everyone,

This past week has been awesome. But so busy. :D So to start on Monday we had a zone activity. We played lots of games and just had a good time. Right after that I had to hurry to a computer shop and call home for Mother’s Day which was awesome as well.

Tuesday is when things got a little intense. We had to go back to San Fernando again because of the Mission tour. Elder Bowen from the 70 came to our mission and had a meeting with all the leaders of the mission first. I learned a lot. One of which is that I was a little trunky to be perfectly honest. But we believe in the atonement and I am repenting. ;) But that was the big event for that day.

Wednesday we went to work, and man did we go to work. One of the things Elder Bowen talked to us about is opening our mouths to more people. What we started doing was being less picky about who we try to talk to... it works. :P We had a lot contacts and return appointments. Good day.

Thursday was the big meeting for the mission tour with all the missionaries from Baguio, Agoo, Bawang and La Trinidad. It pretty awesome as well. And after that we kept working again. :P good stuff.

Friday was an off day. We talked to a ton of people but everyone was busy. It all works out though.

Saturday was another good day. We got one of the YSA to work with us and with him we taught a ton of great lessons to new investigators that seem pretty interested. :) I'm excited to see where this all goes.

Sunday was another good day because we got more of the members to work with us. :) I'm super excited and hope that it will continue into great thing's to follow. :)

Well that's all for now. Mahal ko kayo lahat!!!

Part of Brian’s Letter to His President

As for my studies this past week I have been reading from 1 Corinthians. I really liked in the first chapter verse 26 and 27 when Paul states that "God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise." I really liked that because I acknowledge my weakness and am doing my best to rely on the Lord in all I do rather than leaning to my own understanding because my understanding is weak in comparison to that of an all knowing God who loves me. I know that in spite of my weaknesses the Lord will help me overcome them all.
