Sweet Sweet Fruits...

you have no idea what you are missing!!!!

One thing that is really great about the Philippines is the fruit! It is everywhere! And right now is the start of my favorite season. MANGO SEASON! AAAHHHH!! The mangoes soooo goooood!! When they are green, they taste a little sour so I like to dip it in a little sugar. But the yellow ones are my favorite. They are soft and juicy and sweet and pretty much the best thing ever! I could probably eat these mangoes for every meal, which I have actually done. : )  It is such a happy fruit. fruit that is even better than the mangoes... the fruits of the gospel. 

In 1 Nephi 8:11, the prophet Lehi shares his dream to his family. In this dream, Lehi sees this tree that is glowing with fruit that he describes as the "most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted." Then later in verse 12, he tells how he wants to share with the rest of his family. That fruit can be compared to the gospel. When we are baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, that is a pretty good feeling, that we can then help others to receive as well. One of the best things is really helping others receive that first fruit of the gospel, which is exactly what happened this past weekend for me.
Last December we were introduced to Gloria. In past posts I told a little about her story. She didn't seem very interested at all when we first met her, but after giving her a Book of Mormon, the next time we went back to teach her, we were pleasantly surprised that she had been diligently reading it.
This past weekend she was baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. I've watched her heart change and evolve as we continued to teach her, and as she read the Book of Mormon, and coming to church. Actually, sometimes she gets to church and takes her seat before we even get there. 

Sweet Fruit....

As much as I love mangoes, I have to say that the feeling of sharing of gospel is even more sweet as we help bring others unto Christ.

Have a great week! Mahal ko kayo!
