So this week has been a great week. For starters this last weekend we were able to baptize the last member of a family into the Church. They are now a completed family, all they need to do next is be sealed!!!! The father is a bit less active, but as we have been teaching we have been encouraging him to come back. Along with that we have had a crazy week of finding more people to teach. Our area that I am in now is considered a tough area. For most of the mission you can get 20 lessons in a week & consider it a very hard working week. For us we have been able to get 17 so we are almost there. ha ha anyways its been a really great week and we are hoping for even more to come!!!
Personally I have now seen the effect of having a bunch of native companions. Since my second area I have been only able to communicate with my companions in Tagalog and well its tough but, for some reason most time s is easier for me to just naturally speak Tagalog then English. I also have been getting pretty dark in my tan!! ha ha ha well over all its been a great week!!
I love it in my area so much because its hard!! I have realized the harder the more you learn. And even though I have many moments where I feel I don't know what to do I receive new revelation and well it makes me grow. As I learn these things I have had later revelation on how it can effect my live by applying it in normal days form me back home.
Well I have been having a great week!! I hope you all are also have a great week!
I love you all and hope your doing well!!!!
