Oh how I miss you all!
It's been a pretty crazy week! One of my favorite families was able to attend church and we've been able meet a lot of new people this week.
We had our first 2106 typhoon this week! Typhoon Karen. It was not much here in Catbalogan, just a lot of rain. But Leaders titled it a signal 2, which means we were not allowed to work. We stayed in, updated our journals, and couldn't wait to get out of the apartment after being stuck in there all day long!
Another small miracle happened last night. We locked ourselves out of the apartment and didn't realize it until we came home at at night. We did not have an extra key and our landlord is in Manila. So I attempted to implement one of the wonderful skills I have learned on the mission - how to pick a lock. Then I tried the second wonderful skill I have successfully learned on the mission - how to card a door. After failing, Sister Healey and I said a prayer, she attempted to card the door, and success!!!! We got that baby open! We probably had a bit of angelic help on that one, that lock on our front door is pretty solid. Thank you Heavenly Father.
Pray, read the scriptures, have family home evening as often as possible, go to the temple!
It's pretty hard to not feel God in our lives if we're doing all those simple things.
Love you all! Sending love and prayers always,
Love Sister Russon
