Baptism of Cary March 11, 2018

Hello Family and Friends! Well I ended off this transfer with the Baptism of Cary Villas. She is a part member who i found on exchanges a while ago. Her sister is very active in the church and attends seminary. So she has great fellowship. I'm very grateful that i was a part of her conversion. I hope one day she will go on a mission also! This week she passed her interview and was confirmed as a member! 
Other than that, we continued to work hard for this last week of the transfer. This next week is transfer week! So bawal ang trunky! Work pa rin hah! This week we were able to meet some new investigators. For all of you that know Victory Liner. We taught a bus driver this week! Him and his wife were super welcoming to us and their house is right across the street from the church! So it works great. We hope they will progress! We really saw the Lord helping us this week to fulfill our purpose. Were having a hard time teaching this couple investigators. Cause they cant really hear.. they are kind of deaf.. so we really have to be loud when we teach. They are so awesome tho! Right now they are getting visited by their pastors in their born again church. But they are accepting us. Tatay opened up a concern with us about how he believes in a life to come but he doesn't hear anything in his church about that. So we testified about the life to come and that our church fully believes in it. And then we gave him the baptismal invitation. He said he had already been baptized... but we then reviewed the Joseph Smith story and he understood and accepeted to be baptized! So its awesome to see how he is understanding the gospel! Hopefully next time we can teach him the Lesson 2! It will be perfect! Hes such a humble nice person and is so nice to us. I love the guy. Hes in his 60's i think

As for other things. We had District Conference this week! So i was able to see some of my friends from my last area! So it was good to see them and catch up with all them! They are awesome! 

So yeah things continue to come and go! I cant believe its March! Ive been here in the Philippines for a year and a little! So fun! Thanks for everything!

Zone Conference March 4,2018

Magandang Umaga po! This week was a good week for me in Liozon. We helped Cary prepare for her baptismal interview, but she didn't pass! She was scared of our Zone Leader i think. But their going to do the interview again this week so we can have the baptism on Friday! On Tuesday we had our Zone Conference. It was much needed to hear the encouraging words of our Mission President and the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders workshops were super fun! We ate some good food and i got to catch up with my last companion Elder Jones. So it was super fun! We taught Julie Angel about the My family history stuff and baptisms for the dead! So she's going to get an interview with the branch president so she can get a temple recommend. I don't know how its going to work tho because the temple is closed... :/  But we taught a best friend of our recent convert and she now has a date of march. But when we went to follow her to come to church she had just gotten out of bed.. :( so she didn't come with us to church. So it was a bummer. We had some return appointments to teach some new investigators but they just didn't really want to get taught. They just told us to come back and then when we went back nothing. it was super confusing. I didn't quite understand.But little by little i hope this one family listens to us. SO yeah that was about it!! Thanks everyone!
