Week #96

August 14, 2016


This week in the Philippines MORE BAPTISMS, a father and son outing occurs, and I eat a 14 inch pizza all by myself :)

So this week was quite amazing!! We saw so many fun things and had so many good experiences!! To start off with Martin Baguinon got baptized!! This is the 4th Saturday in a row that Borongan has had baptisms and there will be some more this coming Saturday! I guess it helps that there are two companionships here in Borongan but it's a team effort! Anyways Martin enjoyed his baptism and it was an amazingly spiritual experience. He had the opportunity to share his testimony also and he shared about the change that he has seen in his life.

So Elder Clark and his companion are having a lot of success in their are also! We got to go up to their area and conduct some baptismal interviews and ended up getting stuck there for the night due to no rides... Anyways we worked with them that night and Elder Clark and I had a good time and lots of success! We wrapped up the night by going to a local pizza place, which was actually pretty good, and ordering 2 14 inch pizzas and some chili cheese fries! It was quite marasa (delicious) and I could have eaten more! I think it had to do something with the nametag I'm wearing though! Ever since I've put this bad boy on I seem to have a black hole in my stomach. Then that night we slept outside. Turns out that wasn't a good idea because I got eaten by mosquitos. I think they like my blood type because Elder Clark didn't get one bite!

Elder Tanginoa and I are getting along great and working hard! This will be his last week here in the mission so it's his goal to endure to the end and work hard!! We have seen so many blessings in our companionship! I have learned a lot from him and this will be a good last week for him!

This past Tuesday we had ZTM or zone training meeting! Elder Tanginoa and I gave a training on finding how we can be more urgent in the work of salvation! It was an amazing training and since then we have seen such a great jump in the success of the zone as they strive constantly to talk to everyone!!

Well that's it for this week! Shout out to the family cause they are now in Brazil. Sad thing is that I don't even have a visa yet. Oh well I guess I'll just stay in the mission a little longer! That wouldn't be to bad! Thank you all or your love and support!
