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."

Successful and Eventful Week - March 6, 2016 - Week 71

So this week on Tuesday we had another zone training. We changed it up a little bit and decided to have a testimony meeting. It was super cool to hear testimonies from the missionaries especially because a lot of them are from all over the world. But it doesn't matter where we came from or our background our testimonies are simple and strong. We all know that we have a loving Heavenly Father and that he has a plan for each and everyone of us.

 The testimony helped a lot of missionaries remember their purpose and why they came out here to serve the Lord. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were pretty normal. We just worked hard and taught a lot of people. Then Saturday we had a meeting with the stake leaders and bishoprics. President Aquino showed and we were able to go over a lot of goals and plans on the stake level. So now us as missionaries we know how to better help the wards and units meet those goals. Then after the meeting President took us out for lunch at a super classy restaurant. On Sunday we had church and we were able to see the effects and blessings that came from our home teaching the week before. We added a solid 30 people to the average attendance. Which is a huge deal. So we are continuing to make plans to have more effective home and visiting teaching. I just want to testify that every member in the church needs to have a friend in the church. It is essential to have fellow shippers for every less active member and investigator. Also this week I was able to pass the sacrament with Rohan.

 And last night I got a text from bishop recommending Rohan to go to the temple in Cebu for the temple trip! That might not be a big deal for people in the states but people here sometimes save money their whole life to be able to go to the temple just once in their life time. Because he was recommended by bishop he will be able to go with everything paid for. So getting that text was such an awesome feeling. It really makes missionary work awesome when you can see the people you taught really progress and grow strong in the church!

Well that's about it love y'all and take care!
