Bohol, Loon



Beautiful Philippines

Another week down in Loon. It is crazy how different the work is in different areas, but it is the same gospel! We had some fun tracting the other day. So in the Philippines sometimes there are neighborhoods and the whole neighborhood is Catholic or Born again. And their pastor lives close by. So they are monitored very well. So we had a lot of people hiding from us when they would see us walk up. haha. It was kind of funny.
But Philippino people are so Christ like and kind. There was an old lady in the middle of the road because the tricycle drove off with her can. So our driver went and tracked down the other tricycle to find her cane and the lady tried to pay him, but he wouldn't accept it. They do lots of acts of kindness all the time. It is just normal here.
Sister Honrado and I are doing great. It is kind of fun because she is the human version of Dori from "Finding Nimo." I'm surprised we don't get lost more than we do. We climbed a few mountains this week, but also have some progressing investigators which is great! It is amazing to see how much change comes into peoples lives from the gospel.
This week I read my favorite talk by Elder Holland. "The First and Great Commandment." From the mission I have been able to see the gospel in a different light, I think as the Savior intended it to been seen. Our motivation for everything should be love. Love for God and the Savior, and love for our neighbors. This talk paired with Luke 10 about the Good Samaritan is great! The character of Christ is selflessness. I challenge you to read about the Good Samaritan, but symbolize the Samaritan as Christ, and us as the gentile that needs help.
Thanks for all the emails, prayers, and love. It's a great day to be a missionary in the Philippines!

Much love,

Sister Ludvigson

We have adventures with bugs a lot here in Bohol. Normally we can handle it. But, this time there was a toko in our house. (basically a giant lizard, that is about a foot long) He was just chilling on our bedroom wall. And we were both freaking out because they can jump really far and if they bite they don't let go unless you kill them. Luckily Sister Honrando is basically a toko whisperer and directed it outside with a broom. Lets just say there was a lot of screaming, running, hiding, and almost tears.
