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!

December 2015

December 6th.....First off my comp is pretty cool he is from Figi and speaks english too but his native language is different. We are enjoying the work and its been fun to show him the new things and show him around in the Philippines I am teaching him Tagalog which is weird because it feels like yesterday I didn't know how to get around. my comp is huge me and him want to find a gym here and work out so we can get in shape and look good for the girls and the work hahaha jk. Rossette is doing well from what she says its cool to watch the people you baptized grow in the church.....

Since this is the last christmas on the mish I want to help as much people as possible and do lots of service. So since we have baptized a lot in this area we don't have much investigators now but we got a miracle this week and had a whole family attend church and a few others so it was way cool. Then also we have had people start talking to us about our church and they said we could come back and teach them so the lord is watching out for us and taking care of us. Oh momma mia also I get to skype in like 18 days or something like that. :)) Love Elder Herrin aka Tarzan
December 13th....So first off a small typoon is hitting tomorrow so don't worry we are prepared haha. I miss Christmas in America its the hardest time of the year in the mission hahah but its okay.. and with skype I will try to skype you christmas morning here so it will be a little earlier on christmas eve for you guys. :) I hope all Computer shops are open if not I might skype you on your christmas but I will update you before hand. :) Me and my comp are good a really busy week this last week but its been good and its weird and hard trying to teach a someone tagalog but its also fun haha. We had a whole family attend church we just need to get them fully converted and we brought back some long time less active members so that was cool. :) anyways love you guys I will try to send pics, Love Elder Herrin aka Santa Claus haha I miss Christmas Vacation. :)

December 14th......You are probably already aware of Typhoon Melor, locally referred to as Nona, which is off of the coast of the Philippines and headed our way. We have been tracking the storm for the past few days and have been working to prepare our missionaries for its arrival. The latest projections show it is tracking directly toward our mission and it will arrive sometime early our Tuesday morning.

All of our missionaries have been alerted to prepare for the storm and have been given very specific instructions about how to prepare. We are working to relocate missionaries from coastal lines and areas that might be prone to flooding, mudslides, etc. We are being overly cautious and conservative in the approach we are taking to protect your missionaries.

Please continue to keep our missionaries and the Philippines in your prayers. Our hope and prayers are that the storm will weaken as it reaches us and all of our preparations will have been unnecessary. We are preparing for the worst while praying and hoping for the best.  Once the storm has passed, which should be by Wednesday late evening  I will send an email providing a update.

Thanks for the amazing sons and daughters you have consecrated to the Lord’s service. It is Sister Mangum and I’s great privilege to serve them and serve with them!

I am doing well the typoon wasn't bad we just didn't have power for a long time. there are some people or members that got flooded in my area but nothing to bad we offered to help them clean up but they said its okay its just water because there floors are all cement and dirt so theres not much we can do..  ...Anyways we had the whole family attend church again this last sunday so that was cool and we also have them coming to the christmas party today so that should be good as well. :) I am thinking of different ways on how I can help my comp learn tagalog its pretty tough job I feel bad for my trainer but am glad he put up with my crappy tagalog hahaha. :) Me and my comp have been working out a lot at the house doing pull ups and pushups and using one 5 pound dumbbell so its good. :)) what else happened this week umm... there was one day we where walking I think it was on saturday and we weren't having any luck we got punted a lot and soaked the rain got me and my comps clothes and shoes soaked because the umbrella broke haha but it was okay we still talked to a few people then headed home because it was freezing haha. :).....Love you guys Love Elder Herrin aka Elf
