Mission Tour

Hello everyone! 

I hope you all had a great week. I had a pretty good week here in the Philippines. We had a mission tour so we were able to go to Cebu for three days. Elder Hayne was able to speak to us and it was a great conference. I learned a lot and really grew from the conference. Other than our trip to Cebu, we had just a pretty good week of teaching and meeting new people. We contiunued to teach Mike. He is still going through so many trials with family and financial situation but he still progressing. We also have been able to teach a lot new people. 

My time here on my mission is going well, and really fast if i do say haha. But I am enjoying it. I have learned so much continue progressing every day. 

Sorry I am short, I don't have a ton time today. I love you all and hope you are all doing great! Have a great week!

Hey Everyone! 

I hope everyone had a great week this last week. I had a great one myself here in Bias. I don't have a ton of time today but I do have a really cool experience to share from the week. Our investigator, Mike, has been doing really really well. We taught him this last week and during the lesson, he told us his testimony of the Book of Mormon. He told me and my companion that while he reads the Book of Mormon, he feels peace, and accepted. He has been going through some of the hardest times in his life lately and has been recieving a lot of critisism from family and friends, and it was sick because he told us that everytime he reads, he feels so good. I know that I have shared a lot about the Book of Mormon in past emails, But it is seriously the biggest help in our lives. I know that no matter what we go through, it will help. Its just truly amazing. 

Transfer calls came last night. Elder Magbaleta will be transfering to Cebu and I will be staying here in Bais. My new comp is Elder Pantilo. I have never met him before but I heard he is pretty chill. I am stoked for the upcoming transfer. 

I love you all and hope you are doing good. Miss you all! Have a great week!

Life is good

Hello everyone! 

This week has been a great week. I am really loving the work here in Bais. We have actually had a super busy week. Just seems like we haven't had time to breathe haha! But its good. I would rather be busy  than not. We have had some great teaching visits this last week. 
We have been teaching a couple,  Brother Michael and sister Grace. They are super great. They are super interested in the gospel. The problem is that they are super super poor right now. Mike doesn't have a job and they have two kids. They are recieving no help from family or really anyone. It breaks my heart to see their situation. Because they are such good people and genuine about learning the gospel. Brother Mike actually asked us if we could help them at all even a little bit financially. We were sad to tell them that we can't, but we can continue teaching them about what will help them the most, more than anything else, the gospel. We committed them to come to church and promised them blessings if they would. And it was amazing to see Mike show up to church on Sunday! It was really awesome. We are going to continue working with them and teaching them. 

I am still loving my mission and life. Life is good. I would not rather be anywhere else at this point in my life. It just blows my mind that I haven't been home for the last 11 months. Crazy how fast time flies by. Its good though. Coming up on my year mark, and I am starting to realize that I have grown and improved so much because of the mission. I love it. I am grateful for it all. 

I love you all and hope your'e doing great.
