Week 36 in the Philippines - "my amazing, beautiful fam!"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!!!!! I hope you all helped her feel sooo special! Love you mom!

I have so much to write about this week! I don't know where to start! But before me, how are all of you cutie pies????? It was soooooo good to see your adorable smiling faces last week:) and some crazy faces as well...haha model pots haha. Wow, I can't believe jare, jaim and josh are all in Ecuador! Thanks for forwarding me their emails so I can see what they've been up to. I'm excited to read about their adventures! We probably have the coolest family in the world. so says my companion:)

wow...I just wrote you a really long email all about my week and then the connection was lost and it didn't save and I lost the email. I'm so sorry.

To some it up, we had a miracle happen this week where we ran into one of our investigators who we thought was going to be out of town for a really long time, but came back already! We were so excited to see her! She didn't have time for us to teach her, but we invited her to church and she came the next day for her first time! It was such a miracle.
We also had this awesome training at president's house this week. It was soo good! All about families! We were inspired to prepare for our future families, learned all about president's cute family and were inspired to focus on establishing and building up families here in the Philippines! It was soooo awesome! The spirit was seriously so strong and powerful talking about the most sacred institution of our Father in Heaven.

I feel so blessed to have the example of such incredible parents who raised our family built upon the gospel. I will forever be indebted to you. Thank you so much mom and dad! You love each other so much and work together in unity to make our home a piece of heaven on earth and our family a family that will help prepare the world for the second coming!

I'm going to forward you Sister Moser's email to her fam so you can hear more and I don't have to re-write everything...LOVE YOU ALL WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!! Keep spreading the love of Christ with every single person you meet:)

Love, Sister Malyon

Sis. Malyon's foreword to Sis. Moser's letter:
She really did an awesome job talking about the training from president, the earthquake, talking about families, my new strong desire to get married and have a family!, what we've been working on with doing a 40 day spiritual fast and everything.
Jaim! Remember the talk about love you sent me in the MTC??? I let Sister Moser read it and she referenced it in her email!:)
Love you all!
love sister Malyon...and Sister moser too!!!! she really does love you all too!

From Sis. Moser:
So good to hear from you my beaut. fam! That was so fun. I didn't even feel sad or homesick at all....just happy that I could catch up a little! 

Words cannot describe how amazing this week has been. It makes me want to cry thinking about how lucky I am to be here. 

We had an awesome family night with my favorite family here the Siasons. Talk about Christlike...they have nothing but give everything. Little Nicole...(the cutest girl on the planet...) taught me how to do the "woops kitty" dance haha. Look up the song in Tagalog it's hilarious. 

Then we went to President's for training Thursday night at the mission home (it's seriously like Christmas going there with air condition, a piano, AND ice cream.) 
I gave a musical # to I Believe In Christ. I love that song so much. I'm soooo thankful to Heavenly Father for the chance I've had to use music so much on my mission. Nothing helps me feel the spirit stronger and I LOVE being an instrument in helping other people feel it too...out of all the languages in the is the most commonly known. 

Then Sis. Lopez stood up and was like "earthquake!" Hey what do you know??? True thing...the world was moving and quaking! It was pretty big and lasted a good 30 seconds. It was exciting and a relief to know it didn't cause any real damage to anyone. 

President's training was indescribably amazing. Half of me doesn't even want to try to write about it because it's just too awesome. But basically all of us came out with only one desire in our get married and have a family. Ya ya you people can laugh all you want. Maybe I'm brainwashed...but really the people who are brainwashed are the people who think that we have to wait 400 years to get married and have kids. (kind of like I did before.) (Obviously in the Lord's timing.) I'm seriously a changed person. I received a lot of unexpected answers to a lot of prayers....nuff said.
It's been a really cool week to realize...we're not here for ourselves...we're here to strengthen families, because that is the source of all the bad in the world. One of my favorite quotes; "the greatest convert on your mission is you...but that's not what will happen if that's what you're trying to do." We've been doing a 40 day fast to let go of EVERY tiny little thing that sets us back from giving everything we have....and it's so funny that Satan has literally targeted both of our individual weaknesses this week. It's been so hard...but I've learned to have the eternal perspective and a lot of self-control. I'm starting to feel like a Jedi haha. I'm sorry this is so vague. I just made a crappy attempt to summarize this life changing
In the end it comes down to how much our Heavenly Father loves us. He listens, he wants to talk back, we just have to talk and listen. Everything he does is out of his love for us, and if we study that love, and obtain it, and that's the answer to everything. His love is the light and the prism that splits it up into the rainbow shows us the elements that love is made out is patience, it is faith, it is kindness, it is every good thing. Just love people. Just love! Love your family. Love your friends. Love your enemies. I love you all soo much!
