Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men; For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say. --D & C 100:5-6

1 Nephi 3:7 He shall prepare a way! -WEEK 1

HELLO PO! pamilya and friends!
So the MTC is a pretty crazy place! It's literally non stop studying ALL DAY LONG! And all they do is talk in tagalog in the classroom! But it is a great place to learn because the spirit is so strong here! 
My companion is Elder Egbert! He is a really cool guy. At first we didn't really talk, but I think we were both just really tired! We get along very well which is nice. Our roomies are in a trio which consists of Elder Daily, Elder Asay, and Elder Heaton! They're all really great guys and very spiritual!
So day 2 was even crazier than day 1! As soon as we got into the classroom we were already learning how to testify! We later learned that we were gonna have to know how to testify because we were going to be teaching our first "investigator" the next day! so we learned how to testify and pray in tagalog! but then the teachers left and we had 3 hours to prepare a lesson... IN TAGALOG! It was nuts me and my companion had a like 5 minute lesson on the plan of salvation! which wasnt even like a lesson, just us telling him what it was and then testifying of its truth! LOL thats pretty much all we could do! so we taught or lesson and then as we were leaving the "investigator" says that we are going to be teaching him again on Monday! so we've already started planning our next lesson on the restoration.
Well day 3 was probably the most stressful day of my life! This was the day that we actually taught or investigator and it went terrible lol its a good thing its fake cause he definitely wouldnt have been baptised after that lesson! LOL but by the end of the day i was  really mad at myself and the techers cause I had no idea what they were saying and it was just HARD! But right before we went to our rooms our teacher reminded us of the scripture 1 Nephi 3:7 which is the I will go and do scripture, but she really emphasized on the part about he will not give us a commandment save he shall prepare a way for us to accomplish it! so I know that all this struggle will eventually come to an end and I will be able to teach by the spirit in tagalog!
