14 April 2014

Man, I ran out of cool subject lines. XD

Dear Family and Friends,

Last week's been the most amazing and spiritual week that I have had so far. We've had intense lessons with our investigators. And I am so excited for Geoffrey's baptism this Saturday!

Today on my personal study, I've read 1 Nephi 8. We're all familiar that this chapter talks about Lehi's vision of the tree of life but I want to focus on the iron rod. :)
We all know that the iron rod symbolizes the word of God, the scriptures. I remembered in our Institute Class back home, President Angoy asked us a question that went like this: "If the Book of Mormon was written for our day, what is our attitude towards it right now?".

Sometimes, we can't fit our scripture study time to our hectic schedule but hey, guess what, the prophets wrote it for OUR GENERATION because they knew that we will face a lot of turmoils in our lives and they knew that the scriptures will help us overcome it and have a positive attitude everyday.

As I read the scriptures everyday, I feel closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I can really feel their influences in my life. I have no family or best friends (like Meg, Joy and Em) here but our Father and brother Jesus can make me feel that it's okay, that I can do everything. I can rely on them.
(Oh wait, I have Sister Loveland! ;))

So, will you study the scriptures DAILY?

I promise, nay, the Lord promised us that if we do this, He (through the scriptures) will tell us all things what we should do. ( 2Nephi 32:3)

Anyways, we have English, Scottish, Mexican food everyday. We have American  food if we don't have meal appointments. Yeah, sometimes we have Asian food. And yes, instant noodles. Haha. I'm sorry, Mom. But hey, I am going to cook adobo, sopas and baked biko this week. Watch out! Booo yeah!

Sadly, I have to buy new skirts and dresses. :( Nay, I'm not sad. XD (Yes Sushi, that shirt that you've sent doesn't fit  anymore. huhubels. :( :( )
Guess what's really sad? My size is in the 12-13 year old sections! Even in shoes! Man, that's terrible. I never doubted my genes until I came here in England. Nyaha. Whatever.

So, til next week! :)
Mahal ko kayo!

S/O to Mary Joy Maico and Ana Marie Macaso for having their bachelor degrees! I'm so proud for both of you!!!!!! :)

Belated happy birthday to Yannie Erika Queano. (Ugh, I can't do the enye here.)

I won't be able to email next Monday because on the 23rd's our Transfer's Day. We will have our PDay on Tuesday though.

I can't accept Antony Keen's friend request on FB, not yet. Not allowed. I'm not in his area.

I don't have enough time to reply on your email every week so can you please email me your home addresses so that I can send you handwritten letters instead? I love you all so much!
