This week was awesome! We had a change and planned a community service project or CSP. We got some pretty intense looking pictures, but we were doing some pretty extreme yard work. Here in the Philippines there isn't a huge problem with wild fires or house fires so when you do yard work here, you usually burn it. We made a huge fire to burn all of it, and it was awesome! One of the pictures below looks like the poster from Avengers, it gave us a laugh!
This week we watched General Conference. We watch it a week later here. This had to be the most memorable Conference for me, because it answered a lot of questions I had, and it was an answer to my prayers, and it really goes to prove how inspired each message is, that they somehow have the ability to inspire the entire membership of the church. One of my favorite talks was President Uchtdorf's. I felt like this was something I needed to hear, because I really needed to simplify my mission. I I became so preoccupied with so many small tasks that I needed to do, that I forgot what was most important. It's funny and Ironic how it all works, when we are doing a lot, we sometimes get less accomplished, and most of the time when we stick to the basics, we achieve so much. It is necessary to slow down, and sometimes to reset. I'm aware that there are many who have a lot on their plates, and its good to be active and doing things. But as my Father and Grandfather say " take care of the Lord's business, and he'll take care of yours" If you worry about the basics and balance the necessities, he will do the details.
I hope you all know that I love you! And please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you!
Mahal ko kayo talaga!
