Week 53: “You don’t know the good you do.”
Oct 1 at 12:12 PM
President Christensen said, “Don’t ever come home thinking, ‘that was a wasted day’. You don’t know the good you do.”
One of my favorite things of all time is bearing testimony!! I loveee sharing my testimony with anyone who will listen and I love helping others develop their own. It’s so awesome! For some reason, this week was a little tougher than the past weeks. We talked to a ton of people but we couldn’t seem to get a second visit with them. But the whole week, I kept what President Christensen said in my head. And because of that, even though we weren’t able to get second visits with a lot of the people we spoke to, we were able to still see a ton of miracles! But they didn’t come in the way we expected them too at all.
Quick backstory: before I was on my mission, missionaries in my area now found someone named Alex and he progressed in the gospel really well! He then went on a backpacking trip for a really long time and wouldn’t be anywhere near a signal. Between the time of him leaving and then not having signal, the missionaries taught him lessons through email and facebook. AND THEN OUT OF NOWHERE, ABOUT A YEAR LATER, we get a text asking if this number still worked because he has received signal now and is coming back down to Yuma! Miraculously, Hermana Huefner was one of the 2 companions that taught him through facebook so she knew who he was!! He wants to continue progressing in the gospel here in Yuma!! We totally did nottt see that coming. What a blessing!
There were other super random miracles like that this week that came straight from heaven. Aaand we were able to share our testimonies of this joyful message to sooo many people! That is a blessing in itself. Even when it can seem that what you are doing isn’t making much of a difference, I promise you that it does! You are impacting the lives of so many! And God is so aware of where you are at in your life right now. Heavenly Father is so generous with His love and wants everyone to be able to receive the blessings of the gospel!
I hope you have the best week of your life! 🙂
Love,
Hermana Whitney
Week 54: DAVAO CITY!?!
Oct 8 at 5:30 PM
If you just happen to miss the most amazing event, go on lds.org and catch up on General Conference! I had the most warm, comforting feeling when I watched it. I know the Heavenly Father is helping us better ourselves everyday! And now there’s a new temple being built in DAVAO CITY, PHILIPPINES. When I heard that, I was in the chapel and I screamed so loudly and scared everyone else who was watching it haha oh well. Shoutout to all my family in the Davao!! They are going to be immensely blessed!!! Temples are truly a heaven on earth.
It has been super crazy here. One sister missionary finished her mission and so I have been in a trio. It’s awesome though! A little hard just because we have 2 areas to take care of but there’s a lot of blessings that come from it so no complaints 🙂
Transfers are here again! The time went by so fast. President Christensen called me and told me that I’m training again! I’m super excited!! I know that her and I will be able to learn a lot of each other.
(I’ll have to send all my photos next week… it’s not working. Sorry!)
I love you all! I hope you have the best week!
Love,
Hermana Whitney

I stopped writing for a little bit and now I am back. Personally, I am happily married to a man named William and has 5 children, namely: Eishelle, Danielle, Noelle, Chantelle and Michael. We are a family that love superhero movies and has never missed any of them. I work as a Registered Nurse in one of the hospitals here in Long Island, New York for about 27 years. I am from Davao City, Philippines. 12/31/17 It has been 3 years since Eishelle and Danielle came home from their missions and I stopped blogging. I was caught between busy and lazy. Now that Noelle, my third child is on a mission, I feel obliged to continue blogging. See here I am, back again.
