This week was sakit-free! So we had a nice long week of hard work in our area. We also watched the Philippines Area Broadcast last week. One thing I liked from Elder Ardern's talk was: "Don't let what you do today limit what God can do with you tomorrow." In other words, we need to be keeping the commandments and exercising faith in Him BEFORE we see WHY or what His plans are for us. There was a huge focus on making and keeping covenants: keeping the Sabbath Day holy, doing family history work, and attending the temple.It was wonderful! The Philippines is 2nd in the world, after the U.S., in doing family history and genealogy work. So great!We also had Zone Conference and learned about making baptism the "why" of each lesson as a way to be more successful missionaries. I've been working on it, and so far it seems successful.
