Where Does the Time Go?

Monday, May 4, 2015

Dear everyone,

Punishment from FHE
It's May and I can barely believe it. I refuse to be trunky. :P haha But it's weird to think that it's been 21 months since I left on my mission... ok that's enough about that lets get back to the work. So last Monday was interesting. We got punted so we went finding… at night. It's always hard to go finding at night because it's dark and people might think you’re trying to steal something.. :P But anyway we found this one lady and we taught her the first lesson and it went pretty well. After that we had a little family home evening. The pictures attached are the punishment for the game we played. :P

Tuesday was pretty normal. Nothing super crazy or interesting happened.

Wednesday we had exchanges. I worked with Elder Bolima in our area. It was fun and we had a lot of really good lessons that day. All in all it was just a good exchange.

Thursday was hard but not the hardest day. We just had really hard time finding. We talked to so many people and so many of them just said no. But that's ok. We kept going.

Punishment from FHE
Friday was another better day we taught a lot of good lessons and made some new friends. The only sad thing is when we get commitments for them to come to church and then they don't come.. that's when I get a little sad because we have great lessons and I know they feel the spirit but they just don't act on what they feel.. but it's ok because the work just keeps moving no matter what. the time will come for all of them if we just keep trying. :)

Saturday was an interesting day. at the end of the day we were pretty tired and didn't know where to go exactly because we got punted so we sat down on the side of the street to think for a minute when a guy walked by and asked us about our religion. the conversation continued until we taught him a full lesson explaining the apostasy and the restoration. he was so well versed in the Bible it was crazy. he said he reads the whole bible once a year. We had a good lesson with him right on the side of the street under a street lamp. haha it was pretty awesome.

Sunday was good as far as church but not good as far as work.. it was manny pacquiao's fight so every one was watching that. We just couldn't get any one at home or available the whole day we just walked around.. it was kinda sad. but it's all good life goes on. :) "don't worry, be happy" - Mr. Fish :P

Well that's all. mahal kita!!!

Part of Brian’s Letter to His Mission President

As for my studies this past week I have been reading from Romans. I really liked chapter 5 in verses 3-5. Paul talks about how he glories in tribulations because it works patience. Patience brings experience and with experience we gain hope. With our hope, or trust in God, we gain love for God by the power of the Holy Ghost. I love how it explains that sometimes answers come only after we are patient enough to receive the guidance form the Lord on his time. So with diligent effort and with long suffering we can always obtain faith unto great works.
