Well it's been another GREAT WEEK out here in Guinobatan!! We got to end off the week the best way ever!! With A BAPTISM!! We were super excited to finally baptize brother Romar Jay!! And what made it even more fun, we got to have two 8 yr old kids baptized with him!! So me and my comp and the ward were very happy this last week!! But not just because of baptisms... we had just a great week of work this week! ALOT OF FINDING... hahaha we are really doing finding every day, but this week we had some funny experiences!!
So the first fun experience was when we were out tracting and we went to one house that was pretty big and usually it's kinda scary going to the big houses but I like trying them cause sometimes they have "air conditioning"! hahaha Well we went to this house, and tracted it and turns out it is one of the ladys part of the government out here haha... she was super nice and invited us in and we started talking. Turns out her son lived in Utah for a little while so that was cool but then we got to teach them a little lesson that went good! Then as we were leaving she gave us a souvenir... a coffee mug hahaha and then she invited us to her "fiesta" on Saturday, so right after the baptism we got to go get some lunch over there haha and it was funny cause alot of our investigators over there were at the house also so that was kinda fun! But there was just alot of drinking and smoking and stuff but we went by ate...then took off hahaha but she is really nice!!
Another one of them was a half drunk guy that I started talking to on the side of the road.. So we started talking and then we sat down and were just talking about his life and his wife is dead and now he's just kinda chilling drinking sometimes but not doing too much...then he brings up the question "how do I change my life?" BAM what an inspired question by a drunk guy! haha Well I testified to him of the gospel of Jesus Christ and he had enough sense to actually understand me, and he was pretty interested and he told us to come to his house and teach him and his extended family that lives by him! haha So we have a return appointment over there this week! See how he is now! Hopefully not drunk!!
We had alot of other normal missionary stuff happen this week also but nothing else very fun!! We are still struggling to help out brother Bernardo come back to church! He really wants to, but is busy with work and he's still struggling with the word of wisdom. But he's working on it!
Today we had THE LAST ZONE ACTIVITY IN THE LEGAZPI MISSION! So it was kinda fun to be together having fun for the last time!
Next week is transfer day so we'll see if I'm staying here or heading out next week!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! KINDA EARLY!! HEHEHE!!
Love all of you soo much!
