typhoon tyFOOD.

Well Mario, the typhoon, came to visit this week leaving us stuck in the apartment for yet another day.  This week our 72-hour kits were running low from the previous week's typhoon, so we got creative in making meals of the little food we had.  We stayed safe in our apartment and no large damages were incurred.  On the other hand, Elders living close to us were evacuated from their apartment when it flooded over 5 feet.  When the trees violently sway outside and the homes of our friends, we remember the words of Prophet Joseph Smith:
"No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished and the Great Jehovah shall   say the work is done.”

Learn more about WHAT I am doing and WHY I am doing it:
Sometimes is is hard to go out and work when it is cold and rainy and windy.  The other day we worked in torrential rains and high winds.  A woman, quite worried, stopped us on the street and told us to go home because we were not safe.  We smiled off her invitation and continued on our way.  The Lord protects us.  We work everyday unless there is a legitimate typhoon.  If there is no typhoon, we know we will be safe enough and we work.  We spread the gospel because that is what we were sent to do.  We were not called as missionaries to have fun and play games.  Were were not called to take naps.  Were were called to serve the Lord and that is what we do.
