for God's Army

In The
Book of Mormon is a beautiful story of a group of young men who had never been
to war.

This is what it says, "Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear
death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did
upon their lives; they had been taught by their mothers that if they did not
doubt, God would deliver them."

In the end they fought a great battle (they knew
if they lost their families would become servants to a very unrighteous king.)

This what it says, "But behold to my great joy, there had not one soul of them
fallen to the earth; yea, and they had fought as if with the strength of God;
yea, never were men known to have fought with such miraculous strength; and with
such mightly power did they fall upon the Lamanites (their enemies), that they
did frighten them; and for this cause did the Lamanites deliver themselves up as
prisoners of war".

As we work with the 150 missionaries in the Philippines
Cauayan Mission we see men and women of equal faith.
They are courageous to
stand and bear testimony of the things they believe are true.
Missionary work is
tough, it's hot and some people are very cruel, but this mighty force forges
ahead because they too know that if they don't doubt, God will help them as

This past week we had a wonderful Mission Tour with Elder and
Sister Edwards where we were taught at the feet of master teachers. All came
away edified.

Our dear friend, Brother Pete and his lovely wife and friends
prepared the three luncheons (we split the mission into thirds). One day they
had to cook around a city-wide all day brownout. Even without power he was able
to get the job done. We are so indebted to these wonderful people. I made
mini-carrot cakes for all, with the help of Sister Eveland and Sister Martine'z
who gave up their P-day to come and bake with me.



You will notice that we also
baked cookies and brownies for different events that week.
