So this week has been good.
Conference was amazing! I listened to it all week and then we got
to watch it on Saturday and Sunday. Its kind of a hard
thing for the people here because it was all in English and for most
it is very hard to understand. The Book of Mormon is also hard for them
because the Tagalog that it is written in hasn't been used for a very long time
and many of them don't know or understand the words they use. One
example, An investigator text us last week and said that she had found a word
in the scriptures and didn't know what it was. Elder Daluz didn't know it
either so he had to look it up in the dictionary. The word turned out to
be trumpet. She understood the English but the Tagalog was so deep that
they couldn't understand. I am so grateful for the blessings I have been
given. To have the word of god in my own understandable language and to
be from a place where the Word of God is so readily available. We
are so blessed.
I love this gospel.
Its amazing! It answers all the questions and gives hope and joy to
all who live it. We went to two separate funeral services last
night. I have no doubt that The Plan of Salvation is for each of us
Individually and for our families. It is true and if we follow it we can
have peace. Ultimate worldly peace may never come in our lifetimes but
inner peace can by living the Gospel and using the Atonement. I know this is true.
