This week in the Philippines a member of the Seventy gives a training, old friends visit, and I get to see Elder Clark :)
Well this past week was quite a ride and very very tiring! (I feel like I say that every week! haha anyways it was pretty awesome!) It started off with me getting sick on Monday.. You already know that.. And then on Tuesday we had a good day of work teaching our amazing investigators!
So just an update on Martin Baguinon. (that's his real name I kinda messed it up last week!) anyways he is doing awesome! He currently reads from the Book of Mormon every day and yesterday he went to church for the second time since we started teaching him last Saturday! He is so awesome and is always texting and asking us when he can be taught again! He is 25 years old and applying to be a teacher but hasn't yet found a position yet! So he said he is just going to concentrate on the church for now! He is progressing so great and we love to see the change that is taking place in his life!
So on Wednesday Elder Shane M. Bowen of the Seventy came to visit the mission. So on Wednesday we had MLC (missionary leadership council) with him and he gave an amazing training on the priesthood and how there shouldn't be any discrimination in the mission! Then on Thursday we had an awesome combined zone conference in Catbalogan. Here he gave trainings on the house of Israel, the Abrahamic Covenant, baptismal covenant, and the oath and covenant of the priesthood!!! Did you know that we are the only church that teaches the gathering of Israel? This truly is the church of Jesus Christ.
So Elder Rosit and I are doing great! We are working super hard and trying our hardest to help the branch here in Borongan! We love them so much and the are helping us also to further the work of salvation here.
One thing our district here is trying to push is getting seminary and institute age people to attend! Seminary and institute are super helpful and help you prepare for your future and also to make and keep covenants with Heavenly Father in the temple!
Well that's it for this week! Sorry it's not much but we are kinda in a hurry! Thank you all for your love and support!!
