Kumusta Pamiliya!!! (ohhhh I hope that's right...)
The first thing I realized while being here is that obedience may bring blessings but exact obedience brings miracles. And miracles rock! It's hard to remember all the different rules here and sometimes I don't understand why in the world we have to follow a certain rule, but you guys, it pays off!!! I have seen so many awesome things happening when I try really hard.
Also we taught our first investigator yesterday. ALLLLLL in Tagalog. So awful. I don't even remember it. The language is crazy. For some reason though Heavenly Father is nudging me along and I am getting it!!! This week we learned how to start a conversation with somebody, pray, and bear our testimonies. It's definitely not an easy language and I always thought I could ne.ver learn a language but with heavenly father I can!! Okay anyway, so back to our investigator. All I'll say on that one is that it consisted of about 5 minutes of awkward silences, poorly constructed sentences, and lots of opo (yes) and hindi ko alam Tagalog (I don't know Tagalog- actually I don't even know if I said it right during the lesson). And now I've forgotten it but learned so much about how to do the whole teaching thing better. There is no way I'm going to be able to teach without the full capacity of the Spirit and lots of praying and faith that Heavenly Father will literally put words in my mouth to say. ANNNNDD so we are teaching her again tonight, about God and the restoration. Pray for our lesson!
People say to make it until Sunday and it will all get better. I'm holding on to that with both hands, trying to figure things out! I know that God is in this work though and He will not let his missionaries fail.
Well, hopefully some of this letter makes sense, I'm so scatterbrained and so this letter probably is too. WRITE MEEE!!!!!! Letters are the greatest, I live off them, PLeAaaAASSE.
Alam ko po na totoo Aklat ni Mormon!!!!!
PS. I saw Elder Brockbank and sooo many people from BYU (it's the best feeling to see people you know)
