Here's a short, but awesome email from Elder Baker! He actually emailed me back real quick and said oops he didn't mean to send it yet and was finishing it up, but then was gone.......and I didn't hear another word! SO, here's the exciting news from Masbate this week!! (we did get some cute pictures though!) Masbateno = a different dialect in the Philippines than Tagalog.
So this week was a busy week. We got back from training in Legazpi Thursday morning at 3:00 in the morning! And then we got up at 6:30 and went to work!! We only had a short week here in mobo area but we still got a BAPTISM!! And I got to baptize her!!
Sad news. We had 3 baptisms lined up for January 23rd and the 2 girls that had been our investigators for 3 months and have been attending church were finally gonna be baptized... then the mom flipped on me yesterday! She started yelling at me about how they are born again and she didn't want us there anymore. So ya, only one baptism now on the 23rd!! And then we should have 2 part member baptisms coming up!! So it's really exciting the next couple weeks!!
LOVE ELDER BAKER

I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
