Monkey Business

Missionary Madi had a full week and was so thankful for it. "This week was sooooo much better. Because we actually got to work and we were so busy and we saw pretty much no success and still have like way low numbers but I don't care because I got to go outside and I know that I gave it my all. Such a good feeling and truly what makes missionary work so rewarding. Not the baptisms but just knowing that you are doing everything you can with what Heavenly Father is giving you. Maybe that is what makes life happy also."

Splits with the Sister Training Leaders!
It was sister dukes birthday so we surprised her with a cake and she claims she hated the attention but i know deep inside she loved it. and then we made them sing to her at lunch too it was fun :)

Missionary Madi shared the following with us. "I studied the plan of salvation this morning. It is so interesting. idk (I don't know) why but I have been thinking a lot about Gods plan for us and where we will go when we die and after judgement day and all I have to say is we are gonna be screwed if we don't get our crap together here on earth. This truly is our only time to prepare to meet God (Alma 34:32) so lets get going! I promise that any sacrifice we have to make now to get back to the presence of our heavenly father will be worth it in the end."
At the End of Day it is all just Monkey Business!

4th of July - Happy Birthday America

Missionary Madi's favorite holiday just happens to be the 4th of July. She missed out on all of the parades, BBQ's and Fireworks!It will just make it that much more fun to celebrate next year. We miss her and cannot wait to have her back home safe and sound. "Happy Birthday America!"

It was late when she e-mailed this week. Past her curfew time that she must be back inside for the evening. Apparently due to her being sick she had to travel to Manila by herself to get her fingerprints and Immigration paperwork done in preparation for her return to the United States. It is a Love/Hate time for her. Missionary Madi really is not ready for her service to be over. She was  pleasant enough to take some aerial pictures from her flight to Manila. Finish Strong Valiant Sister!
Missionary Madi two extremes Greenwich Pizza at the Robinson Mall to real life in her mission area of Palo, Philippines. There is still a large amount of damage that is in the process of being repaired and rebuilt. She was amused by the polygamist family. Maybe not so different from Southern Utah after all.
Missionary Madi is able to entertain the kids during sacrament. I have searched the white handbook as she calls it and I have not quite come up with the exact page number where this activity is referenced. However I am sure it is there. I just have not stumbled upon it yet. The Children Love her Antics!
Missionary Madi is always happy when she gets to spend some time with this beautiful Sister. Sister Dumas.
