This week was really tiring but it was the best feeling ever, knowing you just gave every inch of your energy is what makes it feel nice. It was just in this mission where I felt really happy when I hear the words "Ano ba yung mensahe nyo, pede bang malaman?", it was just sa mission where I rejoice when I see our investigator attend Church and saddest when not. It's on my mission where I felt that everything I do is crucial and important and could last an eternity. 

I'm also grateful for this 8 weeks transfer, which means it will give me more time to really focus on our investigators here, I'm really excited and is looking forward for all the people we found with huge potential to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All I just want now is to be the best missionary I can be, to be the missionary the Lords wants me to be. Sometimes there would be discouragements but it is in those times that we need to show our faith more. I also remember a day last week where I just feel tired the past few days but that certain day the Lord gave unto me success, we were able to teach all people we've planned and I did feel that we helped them. It really is true yung nakasulat sa Alma 26 that when you're about to turn back, the Lord will give unto you strength and success. I'm loving my Heavenly Father more each passsing day and I'm learning more now how to rely in the Lord and the Spirit.

Kamusta kayong lahat! Time here in mission is really really fast. I feel like every second that pass by is precious. I remember what our Stake President (President Alicando) told me the day he set me apart, He said, "You only got one chance to serve a Full-time mission, so do everything to make every moment count ... don't do something that you will regret in the end." And that is what I'm trying to do now, to make every moment count. To make my missionary experience fruitful and that I'll be able to help a lot of people to come unto Christ. 

I also notice in myself the past few weeks that I really am starting to get into addressing the concerns of our investigators. I try thinking about them every time and trying to discern what they need. We have people who I can see can be baptize but has just some concerns that's why they're not progressing. So last week I really did spend my time and effort trying to help them resolve their concern especially the Less Actives and Recent Converts too. And I find it really effective that if you really invest your time to the people you teach, it will bear its fruits. We went to do some service last week with a Less Active too and now he's really comfortable talking to us ... and guess what, their neighbor who happen to see us helping him now also wants us to help them and more likely become a potential investigators for us. It's really nice how serving other people can soften their hearts and prepare them to receive our message.
