I wish to give you all the same advice that Alma gives in Chapter 5: 57 " Be Ye Separate" That is our call being Members of the true church of God and his son Jesus Christ. To be different. Have you ever thought about how weird you are compared to other people of other faiths or no faith at all? People who give into the temptations of the world feel nothing but a temporary bliss of what alcohol, money, sex before marriage can offer. But they fall short of one thing every time. Enduring Happiness. have you ever thought of how weirdly happy you are? how many blessings that you receive day in and day out? We are separate. We are joyful.
As you can see my companion and I are FULL of joy!! hahah so much awesome stuff happened this week! Lots of firsts but before all that stuff i want to describe to you the man we called our investigator but who now is baptized and confirmed a member of this church as of September 19-20 2015.
You all may not know this but I LOVE CARIBAOS!
|Adrian's Journal entry...|
Last night we attended a birthday party of our investigator's nephew. It's kind of weird we get invited to everybody's birthday parties for some reason. Great way to get free meals! and find people! but this party was different. We ate our food just the normal. Pancit, Sopas, cake, water. and when we thought we had ate everything they had to offer they asked "Gusto niyo bang aso?" my companion and i looked at each other with fright in our eyes! and said "opo" in an unsure manner. they asked us "Do you want dog?"
anyway that's enough for show and tell! i gotta go! i love you all! the picutre below with the spoon full of meat that is the dog we ate! masarap! i love you! take care! Elder Naylor
I think Last Week My Companion showed me The True Principle Of Charity.
Being Outward in Times Of Difficulties and Trials is One Of the Hardest attributes to apply. He's really Charitable in all things. In our Lessons, This is Weird, But I think Every Time He teaches I just can't stop looking at him, I think He's Glowing while Teaching. And I can Tell that That's Christ's Countenance in Him.
We're doing Great, and We're Enjoying Our Time Together.
In my Personal Studies, This Verse from Alma 53:20 enlightened me a lot about Being True... It says,
I learned that you should always be TRUE when you Express yourself to Every One. Because All my Life I've been living this Motto,
"BE WHO YOU ARE"
And in my Opinion, Not Being True at all times is not being Who You Are.
There should be NO LIES, and NO FAKES. I am happy that Until now I am still living my Motto Of Being Who I am. And I am Happy about it!
That's all for today... Please Be Spiritually Minded!
