What a WEEK!!!!! :) Well I want to start off we have started to help the Magbanua Family build their new house!!! It was a lot of work and we are not even close to being done. But we help as much as we can. You can see that we didn't even get one wall done... haha, oh by the way the house will be made out of all bamboo :) Its so fun to learn how to work with bamboo! :)
This weeek we also had a baptism of Brother Dan Dan! He is really amazing. He has been going to church for over two months and pretty much set his own baptismal date!!! He is now starting to prepare to share the gospel. One year from now is his goal is to be fully prepared to serve a mission. :) Also Sister Angeline and Sister MA. Fe received their certificate of their baptism and confirmation :) I love seeing people's desire to be baptized and to share their joy. This church is true and it really brings joy. It's true, if we just follow the commandments of God our lives are just a lot less complicated! I am so grate to be here on a mission to grow my understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Something I came to realize just on a mission is that Jesus literally dies for all my sins. Not just the little ones but the big ones. I also learned how important it is to forgive ourselves and others. Seeing people get baptized is my favorite thing. Every time I see them come out of the water I get the chills and a overwhelming feeling comes over me. They are new, their sins are gone. This is how repentance works... it's not complicated it's super simple. The church has even helped us to know how to repent by 6 simple steps.
Repentance is the second principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ and it is extremely important and is how we show faith in Jesus Christ. Follow these six steps to learn how to repent and receive forgiveness.
