This week was such an awesome week!! We had Zone Conference in Cabanatuan so we left on Monday to go. Elder Shmutz was there and he spoke to us a lot which was amazing! He is in the Area Presidency and he is the one that spoke in last years October General Conference. The Spirit was so strong in that meeting as he taught us how to better recognize and follow Spiritual promptings, and a lot of other things too. He is an amazing man of God, and you could feel the power in everything that he said. But I also realized more that the General Authorities are still people, they still make mistakes, they still have weaknesses, but they have just learned and are continuing to learn from everything that happens to them. I also heard about President Hinckley that he would never walk away from talking to someone until he learned something new, about anything. Because he just loved to learn and he knew that everyone had something amazing to share. some food for thought lang:)
Also I had one of the most spiritual lessons of my whole mission this week. So we went back to visit Mylene, the one i talked about last week, but she wasn't there, so we walked away and as it started to rain, Mylene was running toward her house, so she told us to wait there and she would come back and we would go to her friends house. So we went there and started teaching Mylene and her friend Nanay Vergie. So we shared the whole Restoration, and it was a solid lesson, and she accepted to be baptized, and then I asked again if they had any questions, then Nanay Vergie said "Will I see and know who my daughter is in the next life?" She then went on to explain that about 2 years ago her 22 year old daughter had passed away, and that she had been told that she would see her again but that she wouldn't even recognize her in the next life, and this was really troubling her. Then we testified with all of our hearts that she would see and know her daughter after this life through living the gospel. She then put her face in her shirt and was crying for a couple minutes, the Spirit was so strong and then she thanked us so much and asked when we could come back. I know we were led to her so she could feel the spirit and come to know the truth, i am so excited to share the whole Plan of Salvation to her tomorrow. Because it is all so true and I know that!
So its been a great week, we were also fed at Costa which is the nicest restaurant on the beach by the Senior couple. It was awesome!!
I will be sending pictures today, sorry it took so long:)
