Week 19: The Caravan Moves On

Hello family and friends!
Too many to tell you about the week! I would like to say that yes everyday is not perfect but at the end of the day and week, counting our blessings makes us develop our character of gratitude. "The caravan moves on" as taught by Tad Callister was qouted from the area broadcast. 2014 goals are centered to the same principle for the last 3 years, feasting upon the words of Christ. The Book of Mormon is true, continue feasting upon them and you will know all things what you should do :)
8 individuals from our 15 names focused of the ward attended the sacrament. And in my email today I am happy to take time to write a few about each of them. Sister and Brother M is an amazing couple, Brother M is doing wonderfully in keeping the word of wisdom. We visited Sister Floradel for the first time last thursday and she kept her commitment and renewed her covenant, she is amazing. She has an 8yr old girl and we are excited for her baptism. Brother Josefredo is an old man, very silly sometimes but she just needs to feel loved. Sister Janet is a strong woman of Christ, she has a strong testimony and she has started sharing it more often that she ever had before. Sister Jocelyn is the super mom, she seems to have a wall built at first but she is slowly opening doors for us missionaries. Sister Elizabeth is the hardworker, she is such a blessing for her family. My message about writing about each of them is they are all our blessings this week. I could sometimes feel the sadness of lack of baptisms and they make me grateful about the other part of our work and very important too. Rescuing the one.
For the other activities, we had ward home evening with the U family. I have the photo attached, you can see how big the family is. We also had ward home evening and a boy went home from his mission. We are excited for him receive calling and work with us. Returned missionaries in the ward are blessings ;)
Sister Arrieta and I are doing great. Here's a little secret, both of us are a little scared of companionship inventory but this weeks been wonderful. I think we are growing to be big fans of inventories and evaluations. We want to improve everyday! Transfers will be on Thursday. It more likely that we will stay as companions but we'll see!
We can travel already! Yay! Roads are still under renovation but we can travel. In fact we are in Butuan for a combined zone activity. Our zone had jerseys made :)
Remember that I love each and everyone of you. I love your emails. People can't blame me if I talk about family and ward often. You are the best support system!
