Philippines Week 40

This week, I studied a lot about the individuality of people. I feel like I am constantly meeting new people and seeing how different each one of us really is—different situations. We read in the scriptures that the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.  But why? Sure He is our Father. It must be harder to love us when we are willfully choosing the wrong.

Then I read in Genesis 18:26-32. Abraham is talking to God about the destruction of the city Sodom. Gods says that he will not destroy the city of wickedness id he can even find a few righteous souls. Even 10.
Helaman 10:13—“But blessed are they who will repent for them will I spare. But behold if it were not for the righteous in this great city, behold, I would cause that fire should come down out of heaven and destroy it.”

So, in my studying I realized that the reason that He loves each one of us individually is because He knows that we are human. God understands that we make mistakes and that the good days that we all experience are far more powerful than the fewer not so good days.
We are all striving to be better each day. God knows our desires and loves us even though we are not yet perfect like Him.

The funny Filipino moments this week:
  • A man that lived for two years in Lousiana told me: “There are a lot of American Idians and Mexicans in Louisiana. Too much. Too much Mexicans.” Hilarious that guy.

  • I saw a three year old fall down a full flight of outdoor wooden stairs and her mom yelled at her for falling. She was just crying and bleeding.  Crazy
