The Fun Never Ends!


I never really know what to say in these e-mails because there is always too much to say.

We are looking for a new apartment because we can't take the rusty water anymore. Actually, I've had a UTI for about 10 days now, but it hasn't gotten too terribly bad-- just doesn't want to go away. And I suspect that it came from bathing in the rusty water for too long. yuck.

Anyway, on to brighter things... we had 15 investigators at church yesterday. My beloved Cauilan family is just thriving in the church. The mom and dad always come and work with us and it just makes my heart swell to hear their testimonies and the stories about their conversion and how the gospel changed their lives and brought so much happiness. And often their testimonies are more powerful and can touch the investigators more than anything sister Villamor and I can teach or say.

Esperanza (Mom Cauilan) told me that Bong (their oldest son that used to hide from us, but is now begging us to teach him more about the gospel) used to turn on the TV when he got home from work, and he would stay up late just texting on his cell phone. BUT NOW... when he gets home every night, he goes straight to his book of mormon and reads, sometimes late into the night. He has been begging us for a bible, and is now regularly attending Institute classes. HA, he's not even a member yet! He has this little notebook he bought and he uses it when he studies. He brought it to church yesterday and he was writing down scriptures that were used in sacrament meeting and Sunday school.

Oh, my heart is just so full. I still don't dare believe its really true, it truly is such a miracle. I love being able to see investigators who really are so hungry for the gospel. It is such a privilege to teach them and be a part of their conversion.
Wouldn't it be great if we, as long time members in the church, were still just as hungry for a deeper gospel knowledge and conversion?

One of our recent converts Mario Villaluz (68) just never ceases to amaze me. He is kind of like Bong. He really STUDIES the scriptures. We left him some verses to read in ALMA 13 about the priesthood and he ended up reading the whole chapter. I'm guessing he read it several times, because he was able to tell us the whole story about Melchizedek and why the higher priesthood is named after him. I was just shaking my head in disbelief with this big old grin on my face. I don't think I could even tell you the story of Melchizedek, but he has it memorized. So cool.

Well, story time is over.
I'm still happy
still healthy (mostly)
and still your very own Sister Webre

The Week Has Arrived!

I had another FANTASTIC week.
I know I promised you a longer e-mail this week, but I had a project to finish, which left me with little time AGAIN. But I still love you more than ever and I am sending you a more long and detailed snail mail letter tomorrow!!

I hope you enjoy the wedding festivities and I'll try not to think about you too much.
We have so much work to do here!!

We are teaching more families than ever and it is a truly amazing feeling. We just baptized our second family on saturday (Grace and Marlon Olimon) and they bore such strong testimonies afterwards, I just sat there and cried and I wondered if I could ever feel more love or joy than I felt that moment. The gospel really changed their lives, and I got to see the transformation. They radiate happiness now, and Marlon was able to get rid of his addictions to alchohol and cigarettes.

In fact, I told sister Villamor that I don't want to go home because I don't want to leave all these people I love and I don't want these amazing feelings of complete joy and love--the spirit so strong ALL the time-- I don't want it to go away.
The gospel changes hearts and lives. The atonement is the center of all things. God's plan for us is happiness. This is His true CHURCH! I love being a missionary!

Have a wonderful week and continue to conquer the enemy of righteousness (Satan)

Sister Webre

These are my favorite verses of the week!

33Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.
34Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days

Happiness is God's Plan For Us

It was a GREAT week!
Mario Villaluz was baptized saturday. He is the sweetest little man ever. (68) We are praying his family will have a change of heart and someday join him! Brother Rolan Cauilan was his baptizer (Rolan was just baptized last week--he is the father of my favorite family) It was really neat, they are both part of the same town and they are the "pioneer mormons" there. We are slowly going to convert their whole little town called "Amulungan". We are teaching a ton of people there. A lot of them are progressing too! No missionaries have ever been there before us because its a neighborhood thats sort of in the boonies. Its soo exciting!

My companion is super talented in sketching. She drew the design for our district T-shirt. Isn't it cool!! Try to find me on the front if you can!
I'll try to write more next week!
I love you all so much!

Remember the plan is happiness, and we get to choose!
