Tristan's Testimony 4/2014

Well I could tell you a huge testimony and just tell you how much the lord has blessed me on this mission, but something I have learned is that sometimes the most powerful testimonys are the simplest! So I will quickly share that I know without a doubt this is the true church, that there is a God and he loves each and everyone of us! I know that because of the lord I am able to have a strong family in the church and because of his son Jesus Christ I can be forgiven of my sins and make it back to him! One of my favorite quotes that I heard from the conference is from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf its in 1 nephi and it simply states that it is AFTER all we do, that by gods grace we will be saved!

May 3rd 2015

So first big news, I am getting a new companion! I had interviews with pres and I think he really trusts me so thats awesome! I am excited to skype you guys and I think it will be sunday night for you and monday morning for me so i will talk to my new comp on thursday and work it out! I am super excited to see all of you and excited to here all your voices especially Lucas's! You guys sound like you are going to have a great summer! honestly it's so hot here at night I can't fall asleep because i am sweating so bad! But other than that I am okay haha! My new zone coming into mindoro is going to be awesome and I am excited to see all of them! It will be sad because I have a lot of friends leaving soon to go home but I am happy for them! I will send pics soon! and my investigators are progressing but we need to get them to church every sunday! I think they will be good members but we need to continue to prepare them! I heard something really cool about tithing I want to share its a quote "God doesn't want our money, He wants our faith." That really hit me cause he has so many people paying tithing and probably isn't super worried about that but wants us to show our love and faith by sacrificing 10 percent of what we own! idk I could get into detail but maybe during skype! love you guys and am going to send pics soon! not much happening this week cause of the meetings but I am doing good and just trying to smile everywhere I go!:) Love you guys, Love Elder Herrin aka Floyd Mayweather hahhahaha people hate him here!

Thats fun! our week was good, we did service where we raked leaves with a broom.. it was the worst thing I have ever done and takes forever haha! But it was a good week, I am ready to skype and see everyone! meetings with president is coming up and I am excited to have! We now have three investigators with a baptismal goal date, but one has to wait 6 months because he is 16 and his parents aren't members! I told you I ate chicken blood right? That was disgusting.. it was chewy and I was gagging a little haha! I have eaten so many weird things now! My tagalog is improving and hopefully when I am a year out i will be fluent! it is summer here so it is super hot and i am really tan.. well at least my arms and face are haha!
