Hey guys. There is a massive super typhoon coming in this week. It should hit around Wednesday or Thursday. Or tomorrow, not sure. But it is HUGE apparently. It is coming right over the top of us too. So I guess what I am saying is...Pray for us. I am actually really really excited but the Pinoys always get mad at us Americans when we say that haha. We will see what happens.
I learned this week that I need to simplify everything. They talked about that sorta during conference too. About not looking beyond the mark. The mark is Jesus Christ. All we need to do is just look to the Savior. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Light. No man cometh unto the Father except by Him. Lately I've been letting less important things distract me. Even other aspects of missionary work can distract us if we focus on them too much when the center piece is missing, the center piece being the Savior. This week I am just gonna try to have some more real intent, and look the Savior and more like Him.
I learned a lot yesterday when the branch president made me teach Elders quorum class last minute. I taught from "The Teachings of President Howard W Hunter" from chapter 20. I learned a ton. Here's some.
