The weeks are going faster and faster and I don't even know what is happening. two weeks left of training. TWO. what. This flew by. I'll be saying goodbye to Bulan before I know it. I have a mixture of feelings. I'm ready to experience some place new, but Bulan has been my home for the past 5 months and it'll be hard to say goodbye.
The work goes on. Arturo will be baptized November 14. When we gave him the date he jumped up and circled it on his calendar and asked us right away what time. He's been to church for the past 5 weeks. That's a miracle people. We simply opened our mouths one day. We didn't even try. The Lord truly places people in our path, and we simply have to open our mouths. The Molina family is progressing and progressing. The kids came to our primary activity on Saturday and they performed in the Primary Program on Sunday (which was THEE cutest thing by the way. It was in English and little kid Filipino accents are the cutest). Tonight we're holding an FHE at their home. The branch is being so great and fellowshipping them so much. On Thursday Sister Routhier and I were in charge of the workshop in District Meeting and it was on working with stake and ward leaders. It ended up going really well despite the ridiculous Taglish that went down between Sister Routhier and I.
I swear it's like I write an email one week and then we go home and the next day it's email again. The weeks fly by. I can't comprehend it. But I love this work. I know this truly is the work of God. I've learned a lot this week in my personal study. Whoever is reading this right now, I want you to know that God loves you. He knows you. He created you. Whatever trials or struggles are going on in your life right now, TURN TO HIM. He's just a prayer away. He gave His Son who Atoned for you. Jesus Christ knows EXACTLY how you're feeling and He can heal you, but you have to let Him. I've felt that healing in my life. I've never faced anything terrible, but that's the beauty of the Atonement. Christ felt even the little things. "With His stripes, we are healed."
I love you all very much and I hope you have an amazing week!
