Well if I didn’t write on this day you might think it strange. Just know that even though I didn’t burn anything it is still my year mark. I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone. This has been the fastest year of my life. They say it only gets faster and faster so we’ll see how that goes. I can hardly believe how much I have changed in this one year. I am a completely different person from the person that went into the MTC one year ago. I feel so much closer to Jesus Christ and my testimony is now a living burning power. I am so glad that I have been able to be an instrument in God’s hands to help some few of these my Filipino brothers and sisters to come unto Christ. I love these people so much and I look forward to the day when I can live for eternity with them. I love being a missionary. All the hard times are worth it from what comes of the trials. “Sapagkat, kinakailangang may pagsalungat sa lahat ng bagay.”
The big news of the week is that I am going to get to sing in a quartet at a multi-mission fireside. We are going ot sing “If You Could Hie to Kolob” – President Beck’s favorite song. I am really excited for this opportunity.
 Therefore, there must be an opposition in all things.
