Dear Family,

Well this week the big news is that Sister T returned to Tacloban. We were all sad to see her go but also glad that she got to back to her first mission. It is definitely what she wanted even though leaving is never easy. :)  SO Sister B became my companion again and we were a trio for 3 days. (Well it was more like a 4 some because we have a branch missionary that works with us EVERYDAY! 1 until 9.  It's crazy. She's so awesome and it's been so fun to have her with us!) SO we spent one of our days in her area and 1 and a half in ours. Then Sister B got a new companion... Sister M my former companion. I was so surprised. So now I get to share an apartment with one of my former comps.  It has been fun. :)

That is about all the news for this week because it has been slow going with the work... But we have one family that is so great. I already wrote that they came to church two weeks ago and they came again this week.  It is sooo fun to visit them because they always welcome us in and are so excited to listen. Plus they are reading the Book of Mormon and were able to tell us about Laman and Nephi and Lehi. It's always exciting when people get into this powerful book.

We also met a new less active that we have high hopes for.  He is busy with work but comes home every Sunday so it is possible for him to attend church... He just needs to want it bad enough. So we will be visiting him every Sunday so he will hopefully feel the Spirit and gain a desire to return to activity in God's church.

For this weeks spiritual thought: Plan of Salvation.  My mind is constantly blown at the perfectness of this plan that God has given us.  This life is a test but we spent the pre-existence preparing for it and now Heavenly Father has given us a cheat sheet... or maybe more of an equation sheet like you get in math or chemistry.  We have the gospel which gives us the perfect path back to Him.  We just have to properly use the equations and follow His plan and we will succeed.  We will pass. Jesus Christ paved the way. He made it possible and now all They ask in return is our obedience and faith.  This video helps me grasp this concept better than anything. Please watch it:
 And think about how living the gospel (Faith, Repentance, Baptism,Following the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End) is the only way for us to show our gratitude for what He has given us.

Love you all!
Sister Hamm
