Missionary Monday – Elder Jake Jackman

March 4, 2018

Hellooooo my wonderful family and friends and everyone who reads my emails haha. Welp this week was a very busy and tiring week. We had to travel on Monday to Tacloban to go to MLC the meeting where all the ZLs and STLs meet with president and plan and do training and such. It was sooooo great we learned a ton and had some great training’s given to us. One of which by president was focusing on the Book of Mormon and how we all need to focus more on using the Book Of Mormon in all of our teaching to help people gain the testimony that they need.  He also challenged us as President Monson and President Nelsen have, to read the Book Of Mormon every day and to apply all that we learn

I testify to that that if we read the BOM daily we will gain great blessings and the spirit will pour out into all aspects of our lives!!  I have been reading the Book Of Mormon every day for a while now and i testify that what the Prophets have said and written is true!!
  We had 14 Elders stay at the AP’s Apartment.  It was something else!
We got back to our area in the afternoon on Wednesday. We were just wiped out –  traveling here in the Philippines really kills and is exhausting!!
We aslo had District conference this week for the Catbalogan District. That took another huge chunck out of our time to teach cuz that ment on both saturday and sunday we had to travel to Catbalogan. But it was super good we learned a lot and the spirit was very strong!!!
I had to repair the kitchen sink.  We got home to a huge mess of sludge and water.  I am so thankful that I learned these skills at home with dad, so that I knew how to repair the broken pipe.  It was a mess and my hands got all beat up, but I loved it so much.  I love working with my hands – it feels so good. All is fixed and working fine now.
Bro bal is experiencing a hard time right now in his life…he is facing a lot of trials and challenges in his life and he is facing a lot of persecution from his family so it is really putting a damper on things….so we are trying to work as best as we can with him to help him out but we are trying different things to help him out different ways to tackle these problems. But he is so prepared for the gospel he just has some things to work out right now!!
Sorry I don’t have much time left so i will just bear my testimony right now cuz i feel SO happy and blessed!! The Lord truly does love us all!! He rejoices when we are happy and when we follow his commandments and he sorrows with us when we sorrow and when we choose to disobey. But I know that Thru the Atoning sacrifice  of the Savior of mankind ALL THINGS are truly possible!  We can over come any trial any challenge and any struggle thru the strength and Love of the Savior. I know that he Lives. I know that he loves us. I have felt it burn within my heart countless times!!! I have felt his perfect love wipe away all of my grief and all my pain His Grace truly is sufficient!!!
I love you all and hope you are all staying happy and firm in the Faith of Christ!
PS – I got 3 packages from mom and 2 letters from Grandpa Mathias.  Thank you all so much!  It means so much to me.
Hurrah for Isreal
