Magandang hapon po!!! Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat!  Thank you very much for all of your letters and prayers and such!  Thanks for emailing Sister Casin, she really appreciates it too!  We’ve become good friends and we have been together a long time.  =)  We have learned and grown so much! So, long story short, but I’m just SO grateful!!  It’s been speeding up as I ‘sprint to the finish’ (as Pres. Stucki counseled me to do)!  We didn’t make it to Palawan after all (we had some...

Spirit to the Finish

Magandang umaga po sa inyong lahat! Wow,…time does fly by SO fast!  I’m grateful for President Stucki’s encouragement to ‘finish my mission STRONG’, and ‘sprint to the finish’!  I’m grateful that Sister Casin and I get to go to Palawan to serve the Sisters there, and then come back for 3 days of good work, and then I’ll have my final interview with President Stucki on Tuesday morning! I’m truly grateful, because I just want to ‘slip out’ of things quietly –...

Sa minamahal aking pamilya,   Thank you VERY much for all of your emails!!  Mom, thank you for all of your efforts on my behalf with school and everything!  Yes, they will fly us over to Palawan for 6 days (Monday – Saturday) and then fly us back! I sure am learning a LOT!  =)  And I have a few more weeks of some incredibly quick growth.  I’m much more humble and better balanced in life than I used to be!  I am SO grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ, and His infinite mercy to all of us – that we can always keep...

Kumusta po sa inyong lahat! I am doing well and growing more and more each day.  I think Heavenly Father is blessing me with such stretching and growing experiences like I desire, to ‘pack it all in’ before I come home!  One exciting thing that happened last week, was the De Guzman family got baptized!!!  We have been helping and teaching them for over 3 months!  We met the different family members one by one,…until we met and were teaching them all! I stand all amazed at the power of God in response to our faith!...

Heavenly Father Lives and Loves us

Ang aking pamilya!!! Miracles (1) On Saturday afternoon-evening we were out and about and we hadn’t yet contacted the referral that we had received last week…so as we went to try to find them ‘one more try’ and then it would be counted as contacted, I prayed that we’d find it.  As we went and asked people around the area (as we understood where her house was), we met a father of a family and invited him to learn more and he accepted, but we didn’t find the referral (Ramil), so we we left.  As we were...

Kumusta ang aking minamahal na Tatay, Nanay, Ate at Kuya at mga pumumkin and mga kapatid, and mga kaibigan!! Life as a full-time missionary is AMAZING!  It is SUCH a blessing to be a tool in the Lord’s hands as we bless, lift, and help His children!  I think Preparation Days used to be my favorite, then Sundays, but now I don’t know anymore… One of my greatest joys is to go out and meet and teach my brothers and sisters about our Heavenly Father and His great plan for us!! Miracles: (1) Last Saturday, we were going from...

Mahal ko po kayo!!! Thank you for all of your emails!  Life as a missionary is INCREDIBLE!! I’m learning the great importance of doing things the Lord’s way and the power of Visiting Teaching and Home Teaching and how it really is the Lord’s way to strengthen every member – that we love and watch over one another in love and righteousness! I’m also learning the POWER of a strong companionship and how Satan does ALL he can to destroy it, for that is where STRONG FAMILIES begin!  I’m SO grateful...

Greatest work on Earth

Magandang tanghali po, ang aking minamahal kong pamilya!! This is the GREATEST work on EARTH!!  We just had our (and my last) Zone Conference, and it was the MOST POWERFUL one that I’ve had yet!  I really felt like I walked away with some tools on how to be a better missionary and a clearer understanding of my purpose and the JOY of the work!  President Stucki expressed to us how we are ALWAYS missionaries wherever we go – we can always talk to others and be kind and friendly!  And so we do, kahit preparation day, eating at a...
