Magandang Hapon po!
As expected, it's been another really fast week. I swear I just emailed you yesterday! Haha. Time is not slowing down at all. Every week seems to just be getting more and more busy.
Earlier this week we got to hang out with the Shaners with a few hours as we showed them how to get to several missionary apartments to do inspections. Not only was the banana bread she made amazing, they took us to one of the nicest restaurants in Tuguegarao and it was also really yummy! Driving around the city with them made me think about how weird it is going to be driving back home and actually having to follow rules and laws.
Yesterday was very rewarding to see one of our investigators with a baptismal date (he actuallyhas one of the best names I've ever heard: Ourson. Makes it funny telling people about "our son".) come to church with his wife that has been inactive for 20 years and their 2 kids. They came to conference last week too and to hear them tell of their experience led me cheering inside myself. They said that there is no way the people that spoke aren’t called of God because they all gave excellent words and made them feel the Spirit and they said their hairs stood up while listening. The less active sister said she was touched by hearing Called To Serve by the choir/congregation because it reminded her of while she was in Primary and singing it. And after her 2 children came out of primary yesterday, they were still singing “Follow the Prophet”. As much as I might have been annoyed my Primary years singing those same songs over and over again, all of those primary songs actually DO make a difference in keeping people active and have a special spirit to them. Yesterday at church was definitely a great experience for them as a complete family and the ward was helpful with fellowshipping and many people were especially happy to see the Sister come back after not seeing her for so long. The field is definitely white and ready to harvest. It is up to all of us to "feed His sheep".
Well, sorry to cut it short. Nothing else very exciting has happened and we are out of time. Thanks for your emails and pics-glad everyone is alive and well (including the little fur ball Milo). God be with you til we write again,
Mahal ko kayo!
