Calbayog Transfer

Well, I transferred

I am currently in Calbayog, Catbalogan Zone.
Such a awesome area, it is truly a city haha, as it is very large, spacious, and overall a familiar feeling. They speak Waray Waray S here, with some mixed Cebuano.
I would like to share with you a brief thought thought, which came from a service project we had yesterday.
So yesterday, I had the opportunity to help out with the medical mission though Dessert Industries.We were doing the same stuff that I did when they came through Carigara. My job this time, was to analyze peoples eyes, using the whole wall chart. Pretty simple. This made me think of this picture.
We need to improve our vision, and focus on Loving one another.
Most individuals can see the bigger letters, But the smaller letters were more difficult to see. Similarly, many of us have love, but fewer have love toward one another. This is something that the mission teaches you, to love one another, and to love everyone.
Which brings me to my last point, This will be my last email. Although I am still here on the mission, I have realized something: I am thinking of home, at least once per week. In order to stop this, I want to focus every hour of every day on the people here in Calbayog, and I honestly can not say that I can do that, if I am emailing friends and family back at home. So therefore, I would like to close with a brief portion of my testimony.
I know this gospel is true, and I know that God Lives. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and my redeemer, and I know that this work is not possible without him. I know that he lives. I know that without him, we can not return to live with our father in Heaven. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and is one of the surest witness’s that we have that he lives. I know that Jesus Christ was resurrected the 3rd day, and that he has a body of Flesh and Bones. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all mankind may be saved. I know that we can be saved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I used to think being saved involved doing a series of events, going to church, or doing something like that. I realized how much easier it is. It is not a checklist to be marked off every week. It is not something that we can just say that we have done it. It is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that is it! That is the plan for us to get back, and it is centered around my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. No other person, no other plan can help us get back there. How Thankful I am for Jesus Christ, him who I have been able to grow closer, and love more fully thanks to this mission. This mission that has brought me on a path of never ending happiness. The mission that has prepared me in ways that I could never imagine. At first, I did not know how much I would learn, or what I would become on the mission. But I know that I have learned much, and I have changed to become what he needs. I have learned more in these 2 years, than I have in the past 20 years of my life. For anyone looking for a bargain or a deal, that is one that I would contemplate. Sacrificing a mere 2 years, is a price that I would gladly pay again and again, for the pure purpose of helping others come unto him. That is why I am here, and that is why I am staying, To help others come unto him.
Although I have much more to say, That is all that I have the time for. Therefore, I will be heading off now.
With Love,
Elder Wilson
