Christmas 2015

Hello everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas! We had a great one here in Mabini. We had a very busy week this last week. but it was good none the less. We had a cool activity together as a zone on Christmas eve. Me and Elder Aquino got it all organized to where we would all go Christmas caroling to some people here in Escalante and then after that we had a big dinner with the zone. After we ate and stuff we had a white elephant gift exchange which was really really fun. I enjoyed it. 
Then on Christmas day, we had our Christmas ward party and our baptism. It was great because tons of people joined in on the baptsim because it was a part of the party. So it was well. I really enjoyed talking with my family on Skype, even though the connection sucked hardcore haha. It was still good though. 

We are staying so busy lately its hard to keep it all straight, but over all life is going great over here for me. I hope you all can have a safe and fun New Year! Its that time again to make new years resolutions and evaluate how we are really doing in life and make the needed changes to improve for the better. Do what you gotta do! Love you all!

Back to the beginning

Good odto everyone! 

This week was another good and fast one. We had a good last few days of work, me and Elder Matthews. This last Friday we had our mission Christmas conference which was really good. We spent the day Thursday driving down and then had con on Friday and then drove back on Saturday morning.  Again, like I have mentioned driving was really fun. 

We taught our IBD just yesterday and she is still doing good. She is preparing for baptism on December 26.  She has been going to church for 6 months straight and is finally ready to get baptised.  We also found a lot of good potential people to visit. 

I was able to work with Elder Germaine in Toboso again on Monday.  It was good to go back and visit my first area and work there again. Its funny because I ran into a bunch of people that I knew from my first time around and they kept telling me "woah you can actually speak visaya now!" hahaha it was good. 

But I hope everything back at home is doing good.

Have a safe week and enjoy that cold weather and snow for me and I will soak in this 95 degree weather for you all! haha

Hey everyone! 

Hope you had a good week this last week. I had a little bit of a harder week work wise in all honesty. We have been really really busy running around and doing interviews for the district leader and the Elders and Sisters in the zone. We had to do quite a few in this last week, and that is what made our scheduling so hard. It is a good problem to have because we are getting people baptized so I am definitely not complaining haha! This last week we were able to get 2 of our IBDs baptized! Two members of the Argel family, Sister Tiesha and Brother Emanuelito. Their baptism went okay. We ended up waiting for like 2 hours for someone to show up to preside for the baptism. Our Bishop never even showed up, President Plaza ended up stopping by and stayed for the baptism so we could do it. I don't know what the deal was with that but, it was good anyways. We had a little bit of a rougher week with teaching people as well. We got punted a lot this last week and we also have been trying to organize our zoning and using time and what not. We are still trying to get a good balance. 

We are doing great here, just really really busy. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We did here in Escalante! We were able to get some chickens and make some mashed potatoes and stuff so it was a success in my mind. We are still trying our hardest to find those people that are ready to receive the gospel. It’s been difficult, but it’s been good. I know that as we work harder and rely on the Lord he will introduce us to them. 

We just got back from another Mission Leader Council Cebu which was good. We were able to pick up the car that we have been assigned to use! So we actually have a car to use now! I am so excited to drive around and what not. But yeah that is about it for this week! I hope you are all doing great and I love and miss you all! Stay safe and have a great week!
