First we were pleased to be visited by Elder Lynn g Robbins of the Presidency of the 70. He talked a lot about Agency and Responsibility. He sayed that people love the fact that they have 100% agency but don't want to accept the fact that they also have 100% responsibility for their actions. He said the moment we start to blame others or avoid, lie, justify is the moment that we lose control over ourselves. So true. WE have been made to be agents unto ourselves. We cant act for ourselves and must accept the consequences for those actions. It was really beautiful how he put it.
We then went to Mindoro!!!! ONe of the Islands in our mission. We took a ferry and had a great time on exchanges with the sisters there.
WE had little time to work in our area because we had 3 different meetings and exchanges and had early curfew one of those nights.
This last week Elder Oaks has been in the PHilipiines and last night there was a live broadcast from him and Elder Robbins. It was so great. Elder RObbins shared about how the things we fill inside whether good or bad, we will see in the people and the world around us. So true. IF our thoughts are sad and gloomy we wont want to see the good. I encourage you to be happy, see the good and how much Heavenly father blesses you every day.
Sorry not the best week. SO busy and I have never been so tired in my life, but it is so worth it. This work is the best and cant believe I only have 6 months to go...SO FAST.
