Ch 110 Fundamentals

I apologize but I don't have a story for this week. Or not any that comes to mind. Actually nevermind  I think I do have something. Random fun fact about me. One of my favorite TV shows (before I was a missionary of course) is Psych and it's about a psychic detective named Shawn and his friend Gus. But he wasn't really a psychic he was just hyper-attentive to details. I do that too, but while Shawn notices random details that actually help the plot advance, I just notice random details and almost always never help. One detail I always take in during my mission is jeeps. I know if I've been on a certain jeep even if it was a year ago. And I remember most jeepney routes so I never get lost. Anyway, we've been experimenting with jeeps to get to St. Luke's to save money, and so far it's working. However, I've been getting cocky. Because I know how long and how much it takes to get there. I've been going to St. Luke's without bringing my bag or any of my proselyting material. And then it happened. a Golden person who's read the Book of Mormon and wants to know the truth or someone who's gone to church in the province but don't know where the church is here in Quezon City or someone looking for the truth.

You might not think it's not that common but all of them came up to me within the same hour at St. Luke's Hospital. When I was getting ready to leave the house all I thought about was whatever I needed that would bring me most convenience as I went to the hospital. I forgot that I am still wearing a nametag. Last week we were reminded of the fundamentals, to never forget those small and simple things we need to be safe and to be ready. Wherever we go, whatever we do, in these 2 years, we are still missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as long as I am a missionary I'll do better to be more prepared because I know He's prepared them for me. 

Before I go on with my life for another week, the last thought on fundamentals. Jesus Christ will never stop helping us. But in the same way, Satan will also never stop tempting us. Don't make it easy for him, let's be ready and be prepared.
