Busy With More Than Just a Bagyo


This week was awesome. Rainy. But awesome. So it started off with Missionary Leadership Council (MLC) on Tuesday where all the mission leaders gather in Naga to discuss the mission, what it needs and what we can do to help it, along with other concerns. It was awesome to hear insights from zone leaders of other zones and what they're doing to help their zone progress. Our mission president was there to which was awesome. He gave some great counsel that we're definitely going to apply in our zone! Then that Thursday we had Zone Training. Elder Reyes and I presented a training session to our zone. We discussed the needs and weaknesses of our zone, as well as the accomplishments and strengths. We even got to present a workshop which was super cool. It was my first time so I initially thought I would be a wreck, but it ended up going super well. Then that evening we started packing up all the stuff in our apartment in preparation for moving on Friday. THEN on Friday we spent all morning and afternoon moving into our new apartment. Glad to say we're finally settled in. THEN on Saturday there was a bagyo (typhoon) centered right here in the Bicol region of the Philippines. Luckily nothing catastrophic happened. Just a lot of rain and wind. Overall... a busy week.

Something I learned this week?... Time management. Life gets busy, and sometimes we just don't have enough time to do all the things that we want to do. Thus, we end up planning for the things that we need to do. That's what happened this week and everything actually went quite well. So yeah. No complaints. Missionary work is sweet. The Savior lives and truly loves us. Sometimes life gets all wonky on us, but that's okay. Life just ends up becoming a big wonky mess. But it can become a lot less wonky if we turn to the Savior and let Him be our guide. Thanks for all the emails everyone. Have an awesome week!

MLC. Sorry about the foggy part in the center. There was a smudge on the lens. Dang it.
