Tie trading and Tagalog!

Hello everyone! 

This week has flown by! The weeks just go by so fast these days, I can't believe that we are already coming up on August. I had a good week here in the great city of Bais! We have been staying really busy teaching our investigators and the members here. We were able to teach one couple, Brother Micheal and Sister Grace, and it was all in English and Tagalog. Micheal is from Luzon and doesn't know how to speak Visaya so we were forced to use Tagalog and English. And let me tell you, it is really hard to teach a lesson in English after teaching in nothing but Cebauno for the last 11 months. Haaha it was really hard. But we had a great lesson with them and now were just trying to help them get to church. They are really really good and are progressing really well. They said they had plans to go to church this last Sunday, but their daughter had to go to the hospital cause she got really sick. But they are looking to God during their times of trial and its just a great time for them to hear this wonderful message about the Restoration of the Gospel. 

We have been having a great time while working as well. I am definatly becoming a better person through this mission. I have realized that it is helping me in so many different ways. Example...Last week as we were walking home, we saw a Joe ( an other white guy-usually mean) walking down the road with his wife or girl friend. And just being friendly, I said "Good evening!" And the response I got back from this guys was "Yeah whatever...Kill yourself.." and he continued walking and cussing under his breath. Haha I was completely surprised at the rudeness and disrespect of this guys haha. Usually if that were to happen back home I would have fired back at the guy and give him a piece of my mind. But I was able to hold back. haha 

But the rest of the week was great. I really enjoyed it. I am loving life and am loving teaching the gospel every single day. I know that its the only thing that will bring us true happiness in life. 

Keep being the best back there in the good ole US of A! Love you all

Stop and pick us up

Hello everyone! 

This week has been great. We have been staying busy with teaching our less actives and recent converts and investigators. Everything is going so well. We have 4 investigators with a baptismal date right now. It is really great. I am so grateful that people are willing to listen to our message and experiment on it for themselves. We have been able to teach some really good lessons about the power of prayer and sincerely asking God for answers. I know that as we continue to pray and ask our Heavenly Father for help and guidance in our lives we will recieve it. 

We got stranded up in one of our most far areas this last week haha. The dang bus services wouldn't stop and pick us up! So we ended up hiking back to the main highway for an hour! It was so far haha! We were coming down from the mountains so it was dark and ahhh it was so tiring haha!

But I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Still raining

Hey everyone! 


I am sorry this week is going to be short, the internet here in Bais is pretty sketchy. My computer has shut off on me twice now for no reason haha. But this week has been really really good. Still raining but its great. We have been able to teach two new investigators this last week and they both came to church after our first invitation which was amazing. We were really excited about it. We are planning on inviting them to baptism on our next visit. We are continuing on to work and find and help people recieve the gospel. 


Elder Magbaleta and I are doing great. He is the bomb, I like having him as my comp. Sorry there are no pictures....I think my camera card caught a virus. I think I lost all my mission pictures, but I might be able to get them back if I try and clean it up. Hopefully they will come back! 


Love You all have a great week!

Hello everyone! 

I guess I should start by letting everyone know that I got transfered to Bais! I don't know how I let it slip my mind lastweek, but transfer calls came and I got transfered here to Bais. Which is still on Negros! Haha I will be spending at least the first year of my mission here on Negros haha! But my new area is great! The branch here is super super strong! The members are great and our teaching pool is pretty solid. We have been staying busy this last week. Here in Bais, it is a lot more out in the mountains and in the sugar cane fields than Zambo. It is awesome though. It has been raining like crazy lately and is super muddy everywhere we go! But I love it a lot. My companion is Elder Magbaleta who is the bomb. I like him a lot. Me and him are getting a long great. 

It is great to have a change of pace and be in a different area. I am loving it. I have really been having some good studies in the scriptures lately. I love being able to study and teach everyday. I am learning a ton. I don't have any crazy stories or anything this week, but hopefully next week I will. I love you all and hope you're all doing great! Have a great week!
