HEYYOOO!! First off shout out to Court for being a freakin trooper and getting stronger and out of that gross hospital!!
Second off thank you for all the support that everyone is giving my family!! (even if it's just offering, cause my dad doesn't like to accept service as much as he likes to give it hehe!!) but just keep supporting Court as she gets stronger and the fam!!
Well mission life: IT'S GREAT! So this new area is Ligao and our mainlike area is called Binatagan!! Well we're all settled in now! haha We've even found some cool places out here!! Like a sketchy bridge in the middle of nowhere that is actually in a really convienent spot for us haha and then a sketchy grave yard that had broken graves and we saw some bones sticking out...( apparently they rent the graves out here and if you dont pay rent they take the skeleton out and re use the grave...) we also found a cool lil "life of Jesus Christ" park thingy haha it was cool and then we found a wannabe adam ondi ahman called "Kawa Kawa" hahaha which was beautiful!! And there was a cool huge heart thing to take pics on!! But other than that this area is good for teaching!
We have kind of alot of investigators haha We are teaching the people the last missionaries taught, but there's only a couple working towards baptism. We have a projected 5 baptisms for the month of July!! YEAH YA!! There is 2 kids that are part members their mom is a member but the dad is wayy against it he wont let them get baptized but this last scripture we shared with them the boy "jigs" said that he felt something tell him he needed to be baptized, so I encouraged him to share with his dad the verse and then how he felt hoping that his dad would feel the spirit and let them be baptized and hopefully realize he needs to be baptized too!! But so in that family there is Angelica and Jigs!
And then the other family is the Behino family!! Hopefully they can be a family baptism but I don't think it will be because the kids want to be baptized soon and the parents do too, but they aren't married and the problem is they don't have money to get married soo we're trying to just get them ready for baptism and encourage them to get married asap!! They've been together for 16 years but not married yet hahha!! But they're excited to be baptized when they can!!
SOO something that I was thinking about this week is in D & C 82 vs 9 I was studying cause I was talking about promised blessings in vs 10 but vs 9 stuck out alot on me and had a big impression!! I was thinking about it and I love how like it pretty much just like tells you that its up to you to work out your salvation!! Like he says he has given us all we need now its up to us to work out our salvation!! And he has given us his promised blessings if we choose to follow his plan!! He also tells us what will happen if we dont!! Like it says in Mosiah you are free to choose, captivty and death or eternal life!
O BE WISE MY FRIENDS WHAT CAN I SAY MORE (JACOB 6:12)
CHOOSE ETERNAL LIFE!!
I LOVE YOU ALL SOO MUCH KEEP CHUGGING ON IN LIFE!!
LOVE ELDER BAKERHAKUNA MATATA!!
