Hey everyone – just a quick update from the Cavite Mission. We had an awesome visit from Elder Dallin H. Oakes who is a member of the Quorum of 12 Apostles that lead the LDS church. All of us missionaries came together for a conference and he got up and just started talking about just being happy. How we need to be happy wherever we are assigned – every minute of it! This was a perfect message for me. It was really helpful to hear this coming from an apostle of the Lord and to be in his presence. A fringe benefit of the conference was that I was able to see some of my “batch-mates” from the MTC and joke around with them.
In other events, I have a new companion now and he is one of the coolest guys I have ever met -It feels like we’re brothers already. His name is Elder Toledo and he is super diligent and good at teaching. I’m going to learn a lot from him.
Well – that’s about it! Enjoy the photos and I’ll send more next time!
