It was a good week in the Philippines Olongapo Mission for us missionaries.
We were able to work with Ruffa our referral that a member gave us and we were able to teach her with her fellowshipper. And it went really good. She prayed about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and she believes in them. So we extended a baptismal invitation to her for Nov 11. And she accepted. And she really wants to be baptized. So that was the teaching highlight of the week. We also taught Bobby the Word of Wisdom and he was super shocked. And he got pretty serious with us about how he wanted his family baptized with him. But we just haven't found a good time to teach his family. So were working on it. And we worked more with these little girls who are part members. And weve been able to teach alot of people in that area. So its awesome!
But on Friday night President Lacanenta called me up and told me I was being transferred up north to Iba Zambales.So now i'm out of the South and into the North. So i said goodbye to our investigators and Members in that ward. Im going to miss that area a lot. It was such a good area. But its all good.
So i got on a bus and headed up here on Saturday. My new companion picked me up Elder Ramos. My first filipino companion! He's from cavite Phillipines and he's 22. And right when i got here we had a baptism in this area. So we headed straight to the church and i had to unpack my baptismal clothes haha. It was a great day for those kids to be baptized into the true church. Were super happy for them. But i'm excited to work in a new area and get to know these people here and work really hard!
The church is true. Theres no other church that is true expect the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Im so grateful to be a member of this church. And Im grateful for this opportunity to be here in the Philippines be spreading it! Have a good week everyone and enjoy yourselves! Love you guys
