I am in Baguio
City right now! It is nice and cool up here in the mountains. The bus
ride up was 1.5 hours and very very windy. The lady I was sitting next to gave
me a banana to eat so I gave her a pamphlet about the restoration. She read the
whole thing on the way up the mountain. she said she had no questions about it
but I told her if she did, to ask the missionaries! I am becoming more
comfortable now with "Preach by the Way" now that I am getting better at
So the reason why my companion and I are in the city
right now is because my camera broke earlier this week. Yes the new camera that
I just bought at target was accidentally dropped by my dear companion Sis
Cabrera. Luckily though we got permission to take it to a repair shop here in
Baguio. It is the closest to Caba. It is fixed now for 1000 pesos. So sorry if
there are not a lot of pics this week.
So this week has been another week of
work! We are working really hard on finding new investigators through the
members and by looking in our area book for past investigators. We just lost two
more Ibd's this week. Sister Donna and Brother Mark. We had chosen a date and
everything for them Jan 12. but they are not yet married. They really wanted to
be baptized Jan 12 but their families didn't want them
moving their wedding date to Jan instead of April. They decided to wait till
april to be baptized so their families would not be upset. We are sad but
happy for April! They are very commited and come to church every week. Sister
Donna feels the spirit so strongly when she reads the Book of Mormon and Mark is
really excited to be sealed to her and their new baby (due in Jan) someday.
This week we have been so so so blessed to have so many different branch
missionaries work with us. We are now being able to match branch missionaries to
the needs of the investigators and it makes all the difference in the conversion
process for the investagator. It is also really great because we have had our
recent converts working with us a lot! Brother Jomar, a recent convert, worked
with us for the first time last night and he did so well! He testified of the
Book of Mormon and about Joseph Smith. It makes me so happy to hear the
testimonies of Rc's they are so plain and simple and powerful!
Mission is all a buzz because of all the new missionaries to be arriving within
the next two transfers! I am excited because we might be getting two new sisters
in Caba area! We need it here in Caba. Back in the day Caba was it's own ward!
With two new sisters we will be able to double the work and help Caba become the
great ward it once was :) I am excited for what is to come, but also sort of
nervous. With all these new missionaries my chances of training are getting
higher! Training would be difficult but a good learning experience for me. We
will see what happens.
hmmmmm what else I don't have that much time. Sorry
