Magandang araw sa inyo!

It has been yet another week of us taking showers in the rain outside as we walk. Even though we have umbrellas, everything from the waist down gets soaking wet. I think it rained literally every afternoon last week. It always starts out hot and no clouds around lunch, then we hear the thunder rolling in. I just keep all of my stuff in a plastic bag now to keep from getting wet. And of course with every rainstorm comes a brownout! I don't think I've experienced this many brownouts since Mallig. It will be weird going home and not ever experiencing a brown out. 
It is also the time of year where there are many fruits everywhere, so we have been pounding down the fresh pineapple like nobody's business. The pineapple here is so sweet and juicy, I can eat a whole thing in one sitting. 
We have been busy teaching our new investigators and preparing them to commit to baptism. One of them is 18 yrs old and progressing really well, and even planning on attending the district YSA activity this week. It is nice to have an investigator that is progressing and missionary age. I was super excited last transfer day when I saw someone I baptized in Cabagan because he was waiting for his mission call and wanted to serve as a part time missionary while he waited. He has a pretty crazy story to tell because he was kicked out by his parents when he told them he was going to serve a mission. 
It is interesting teaching all of these new investigators and asking them a simple question after finding out they have done our commitment-How did you feel as you prayed? All of them say it was something different, saying it made them feel happy or peaceful. That is when I teach them the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5 and help them realize that what they feel that is "different" is the spirit working on them, and it would be impossible for them to feel that if it wasn't true. Feeling the spirit is something we are all entitled to, as long as we allow it.
Well, thanks for all you do and ingat kayo palagi!
Mahal ko kayo,
Elder Nay
