1 Nephi 3:7

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

Always Room for Improvement - February 29, 2016 - Week 70

This week went by way to quick! Tuesday we had district meeting where we learned how to better teach lesson four about commandments. After that we got right to work. We had a member work with us like all day so that was pretty sweet. Then on Wednesday morning Elder Ramos and I headed down to Iloilo a little early before MLC. We got a bite to eat with Elder Swanton and Crichton at Zarks (an american burger joint) Then we headed over to the church to get somethings taken care of before MLC. 

The first night of MLC we had accounting which went really well. Then that night Me, Larson, Swanton, and our comps went and stayed the night at Swanton's place. We had a little bon fire and just sat there and talked and sang songs while Larson played the guitar. We also ordered Mcdonalds! We stayed up "a little late" that night. It was fun getting to catch up with those guys. Then the next morning we headed back over to the church for the second part of MLC. After that MLC I officially have a new favorite in the Book of Mormon. Moroni is one awesome leader and servant. We studied Alma 43-62. And we took out all of the cool things Moroni did with his people and armies. The goal is for all of the leaders in the mission to be that kind of leader. I would strongly encourage y'all to read and ponder those chapters. Thurday night after the MLC we headed back up to Roxas. I received a text from Bishop asking me to speak on Sunday. So I started to think about what I could speak on so I chose Repentance. Then after church on Sunday the bishopric went on splits with us to go home teach less active families. It was awesome just watching them take control of the lessons and really fulfill their callings. So all in all this week was great. That's about it though so have a great week y'all! Love you guys!
