The Big Serve isn’t about coming to church, it’s about being the church.

It’s about getting out of the pews and into the world.
It’s about being the church in those places where we live, work and play.
It’s about loving our neighbors and serving the common good
over one incredibly inspiring weekend.


Missionary Monday – Elder Jackman, Changes

Well I have no more time right now so this will be really quick!!
I just got a new calling to be the New AP (Assistant to the President) of the Philippines Tacloban Mission! So I am really excited but really nervous – please pray for me. I will now be speaking Waray Waray H and Tagalog. I am now in Tacloban chillin’ with the APs and yea we have a lot of stuff to do today with transfers and departing missionaries and new in comming missionaries and such so it is cray!! (crazy)

We had a miracle happen this week at church in Calbayog we had the Serito family come to Church they are our progressing investiogators and Sister Esperanza bore her testimony at church in front of the whole congregation!!! (She tapped me on the shoulder and asked if it was ok for non-members to bear their testimony. I said Yes Yes, Of Course! And she went up and Bore an amazing testimony). It was soooo cool and sooo powerful!!!

When we were teaching a lesson this week our investigator got some huge eyes and said “Whoah!!” And said, “Elder look behind you”. I turned and there was a Centipede on the wall about the size of the top of my fingers to my wrist. It was so cool.

Love you all SO much! Sorry I have to go cuz we got stuff to do but I love you all sooo much! Trust in the Lord and look to the Savior for guidance and for help and especially for strength!!

We can do hard things

Missionary Monday – Elder Jackman, D&C 98:1-3

Sun, March 18th

Hello family i hope this was a good week for you all. I’m sorry i dont have much tme left – in fact i dont have any time left haha so i will make this quick!!

This week was good but we had some hard trials and things happened that caused us to be discouraged and such. But Heavenly Father comforted us thru the Words in D&C 98:1-3 this is a revelation given to Joseph for the saints is Missouri who were really suffering that no matter what happens give your thanks to God for his blessings and for his love!! Even tho life is hard The Lord still love us all and Jesus Christ is always there to help us and comfort us!!
God always hears our prayers and he always loves us but he knows the right time and place to answer our prayers sometimes he has to create that ‘holding place’ in our hearts so that there is room enough to recieve the answer!!

That really helped me and Elder Apsay this week as we faced some discouragement with our investigators. The Serito family didn’t come to church and bro bal still hasn’t texted us to go help him or teach him….we feel he is slowly slipping away and we do not want that to happen. But we continually pray for him and know that Heavenly Fathers plan will be accomplished or us and for Bal.

We transferred the sisters stuff this week to their new apartment so that was really fun. I was hanging off the side of the timbol as we rode along trying to hold onto things so they wouldn’t fall haha it was soo fun!! And Elder Apsay is sitting on the bike part hanging on. We had to do this 3 times.

We actually went to a new area to find some less active members and it was awesome. It was in the Bukid (jungle). It reminded me of Villaba so much – I just loved it.

Love you all so much I hope you are all happy and safe and staying safely on the Lords side of the fence!!

Missionary Monday – Elder Jackman, Busy Week!

Sorry I don’t have much more time so I will just give a small spiritual thought
This week I read in 3 Nephi 17 this is where Christ heals the sick and afflicted of the Nephites and where He also blesses their children! I love this chapter sooo much it really brings the spirit and can really bring peace i love verse 7 Christ asks them to come forth and be healed he says bring any that are afflicted in any manner…..isn’t that all of us. We each are suffering with something in our lives we each have problems and struggles but Jesus calls to all of us  to come unto Him and be healed and be happy!! I know that it is possible for all of us. It may be hard and sometimes the journey to Christ may seem long but it is possible and it is the best journey we can all make!!! And remember that journey is a life time!!
The gospel is for the perfecting of the saints not for the perfect saints.
Trust in God, Believe in yourself and press forward!!
Love you all sooo much!!

Missionary Monday – Elder Jake Jackman

March 11th, 2018

Well this week was very busy for me and Elder Apsay we weren’t able to do a whole ton of work cuz we had  to do a lot of stuff for the Zone to help out other missionaries.

 1) We had to get all this stuff worked out for the calbayog sisters new apartment we finally found them an apartment and got it all worked out and everything so there were multiple days that we had to meet with the apartment owner and get things worked out and then go and check out the apartment and make sure it was good and then the day after that we had to go back and meet the care taker there and open the apartment for him so he could fix the door knob and give us the new key and all that fun stuff. It was a lot of work and i am glad that it is almost over. This week the sisters will transfer into their new apartment on Tuesday!!!
2) we had to help some other sisters find a hospital this week cuz one sister needed to get her foot and neck looked at so one day we went around finding a hospital that accepted maxicare and that had a general surgeon then another day they came here and we helped them with the doctors and with scheduling stuff. Then another day they came back for results and more check ups and all that fun stuff so that was fun to deal with too.

We taught the Serito family this week and they are doing sooo great!! They all came to church too and are doing great at reading the Book of Mormon! We have a plan to go back and teach them this Thursday and to re-extend their IBD just to help them really be ready!!
As for Bro Bal he has hit a rough point. He is getting a lot of persecution from his auntie who is a Madre in the catholic church and she basically convinced him to investigate the Catholic church….so bro bal has been doing that and he has come in contact with some anti mormon stuff and has caused a lot of doubts for him….so we are doing our best to help him and we really keep praying for him very fervently!!
Well this week was great I have had many amazing personal studies this week that have really helped me out!!
one thing I want to share is from Mark 9:23-24
In this time a father came to Jesus with his son who was possesed with an evil spirit and Christ said unto him if thou canst believe all things are possible. then 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, believe; help thou mine unbelief.
I love that verse in verse 24 the father straghtway cried out. He immediately cried for help and said that he believed but then maybe doubting his faith or maybe lacking the confidence that he needed he said ” help thou mine unbelief” we are all lke that sometimes we all need the Grace of Jesus Christ to help us continue and to help us endure or evern to help us gain the faith necessary.
I know that if we just put ourslves trustingly in the Arms of the Savior he will always lead us to greener pastures but some times that path is rocky and rough but I wouldn’t want it any other way!!!
Love you all sooo much keep strong and keep happy!!
