Isang Taon Na.
Hiiiiiii! It is I, Sister Waldrom. Who is reaching her one year
mark. WHAT WHERE HAS TIME GONE?! Crazy how relative time is on the
mish, because we are so close to heaven!!! Love and hate it. It sure
Yoyoyo!! Pamilya! I have got an assignment for all yall! Page 202
of Preach My Gospel. Second Bullet point. What blessings have you
received from your obedience? I want your answers by next monday! I
think it will greatly help me teach investigators of blessings from
This week I saw the blessings of the priesthood. I learned a lot this
week of how men are not the priesthood, simply the holders of it. The
priesthood blesses all of God's children on earth. For all you
priesthood holders reading this, I have a question. What does it feel
like for you when you exercise the priesthood? That is amazing stuff.
This week Sister Tua'one was sick. :( We stayed in from
Monday-Thursday, therefore I read Our Search for Happiness in a 24
hour period of time and also made a mission vision for myself (see
attached photo). It was some great study time on my part, but I felt
bad for my compy. She is doing better now. But for realz, my vision.
It was such a great realization for me of what else I need to and
want to achieve on my mission. I made so many spiritual goals and
ideas. I love being a missionary! I actually began some goals for my
life after the mission. I look forward to living the law of
consecration as a member of the church.
I went on exchanges with Sister Maagad, who is companions with my
trainer on the mission. She is so cool, from Visayas in the
Philippines. This was my FIRST time working with a filipina since my
own trainer in the mission! And I also realized that I haven't lived
with a filipina since my first area, back in November. So whatever,
if my Tagalog really does suck, its not my fault, I have got no
natives to teach me!! But Sister Maagad helped me out. She is one
spunky and cool Filipina! We had a great day of finding in the dead
heat of this country. Literally I am soaking wet everyday. And that
day was one of the worst. But she helped me through! I learn a lot
of new ideas and approaches from these sisters. I love this
opportunity to work with them.
I got to speak in church yesterday about missionary opportunities.
Hoping that my talk got them excited to give us some referrals. I
just looooove the short notice the bishop always gives us when we
speak in church...
Well, this area is hanging in there and so am I. I feel you prayers
and thank you so much for them all. I remember in a priesthood
blessing I received from President, he blessed me to feel the prayers
of my family and receive those blessings. So thank you because I know
I am receiving everything you are praying for! I love you all to
Kolob and back! Stay true to what you know! Oh!!! Come to find out, our
investigator, Cristina, back in Batangas was baptized!!!! Holla!!! the church
