"Children of Light"

Hello! So I remembered way back in the day when I hated Mondays, like I never wanted Monday to come. But now its my favorite day. Funny huh? Yeah so nothing new this week. There was another typhoon, you know just like any other week. But this typhoon was the first typhoon ni Sister Cansanay on her mission. Typhoons are like super rough so I didn't know how it was going to be but she totally loved it. She was singing Master the Tempest is raging and wanted pictures in all the floods. Haha(:
-Picture taking during the typhoon! 
I'm so grateful for her. I hate working in typhoons but she made it so enjoyable(: Me and Sister Cansanay have a lot of fun together. This week in our training we watched these Preach My Gospel videos and they are just so cheesy. Haha we just make fun of them the whole time! Hahah we're like the same person.

I was reading the August Liahona. I was reading the first presidency's message by President Thomas S. Monson, ' Stand as a Light' and also the backside section for the youth 'Beacon of Light' (or something like that, I'm forgetful) but my point in why I'm telling you about these articles is because the pictures they used are of Filipino children(: Yeah when talking about children of light and being beacons of light they used pictures of the happiest people I know. Filipino children jumping out the back of a truck and at the Manila temple. Its true they are children of light. Their smiles just radiate light.
-RJ's contagious smile
They have every reason to be sad but are so full of joy. My view of life is changed forever because of these people and their contagious smiles(:

I want to share with you guys what I read in 2 Nephi 21 this morning. It was a beautiful personal study(: this chapter is about Jesus Christ and the house of Israel. And they are like super wicked right now and when the Lord could not bless them anymore because of their disobedience and stuff they were like the Lord hath forsaken and forgotten us. But the Lord was like no way, I'm aware of you guys! "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands." That verse hit me so hard. I'd hate to admit it but I've had times in my mission where I've asked those same questions and felt the same way."Yea, they forget, yet will I not forget thee, o house of Israel" Its only us that forget. He knows each and every one of us. Our wants, our desires, our challenges, our concerns, and He will always be there waiting for us to find Him. I know He wears His love for us on His palms. Such a beautiful act of love that I'm still trying to understand fully. I love my Savior and I'm so grateful for the help He offers to us everyday. Yeah well I just love being a missionary with all my heart! Halong! Stay Fresh!
