Hello everyone I hope you all had a good week, we worked hard here. I don't have a lot of time so I will just summarize as fast as possible.
we taught some really spiritual lessons. There’s nothing better than having a spiritual lesson. We just get out and want to scream “Yes” and pump our fists, its so cool haha. It rained pretty hard today. The rain was so hard that we couldn't hear anybody even when they let us in their house. It was crazy.
On Wednesday we just worked and the usual happened. We found this good couple but their relative is a pastor so that could be problematic haha. They’ll be fine.
we found some pretty good new investigators. Mamburao is like where Joseph Smith lived. There are so many religions that people are confused which one is right, It’s insane. There are so many different varieties. We have some good investigators that I'm proud of because we made a plan with him to avoid smoking and he's doing it. He’s the man!
we taught some great lessons. One was to some people that said they were not looking to switch religions but by the end, the spirit was so strong. I could see it in their eyes that something was stirring. We felt prompted to invite them to baptism (be bold). They didn't accept but said they would think about it which was a huge change from the beginning of the lesson. On our way home we got drenched, everything was wet. It was like we had just stepped out of the shower. Floods everywhere.
we got punted hardcore. There were floods and we couldn't even get to some of the places we needed to go. We taught a few times and just kept working hard. Missionary work is happy but also humbling. Very humbling.
was good, after church this guy just showed up. He knew so much. He had followed some members after church and asked them what their religion was and when he found out Mormons he came back to us immediately. He was saying things like doctrine and covenants, Oliver Cowdry and asking for an Ensign. He’s not a member but he knows his stuff. We got an appointment to meet with him and gave a book of Mormon. Hopefully it works out. We were asked to give a blessing at a hospital. The spirit was strong as we walked in. The branch president anointed and I blessed. It was very spiritual experience. Thankful for that experience.
I also encourage you all to watch general conference. It is such a special opportunity to hear from apostles and prophets. Please watch all the sessions. love you all, have a good week.
