|Flowers for Karen from Central Market|
It was a long night. George and I prayed (as I am sure many others did) for her well being. Early the next morning I contacted her. She said, "I am well, Sister Mower". The swelling was gone and there was no redness when we visited later in the day. There was only one puncture site and a scratch. I told her she was our miracle; D&C 84:72: "And the poison of a serpent shall not have power to harm them".
She showed us a picture of the dead snake. It was longer than she is tall (she is around 5').
The Lord loves his missionaries!
|Elder Garson & Mother|
|Banate Family taught by the Sisters|
Yesterday (Saturday), we attended the baptism of a family that was taught as a result of the Liahona child malnutrition screenings that we helped organize for the Mission. Here’s a picture of the mother and four children; a fifth is shown and will be baptized in July (+1 other child from another family). We also attended their confirmation today, and were asked to speak in sacrament meeting.
We enjoy our service here in the Philippines and love our family and friends back home.
May God bless you.
