May 15, 2016

Yooooooooooooo fammmmmm... So sorry. It has a been a long time! Im sorry. Well for all of you that read my stuff, I am sorry. It has just been busy busy around here. Missions, am I right? 

Well there is a lot to go over I suppose. So my area is awesome! I love it. My comp is awesome, we have a lot of fun together and work sssuuuppper hard. Being a ZL is pretty cool, lots of responsibility hopefully people dont think I suck but I am loving it. I have reached my favorite part of my mission so far, I cant really complain about much... Right now we have 9 investigators progressing towards baptism right now. What an amazing blessing from the Lord and to see so many receptive people in just one area. Our most upcoming baptism right now is Eros Rosalles. He is wayyyy cool. He is 17 and he was actually born in Turkey but he is pure Filipino. He is way awesome and a really solid investigator. He was a referral from his aunt is a returned less active member. Eros knows every capitol for every country in the world hahah its way cool, we always quiz him on countries and he always knows them!! He will baptized this saturday and I am really excited for him. He will be my first baptism here in this area. He even has a desire to serve a mission which would be even cooler!! Our next most progressing are these 3 19 year olds. There situation is kinda hard to explain butttt they live at another investigators of ours house/bakery and the the investigator that owns the bakery is basically a full time member but cant really be baptized right now and that is a whole other story buutt anyways one of the 3 19 year olds is the nephew of the one that owns the bakery and the other two are his friend and his girlfriend. So they are really cool investigators as well and they are starting to really progress a lot. There names are Mark, Clark, and Jhona. So when we first started teaching them they were SOOO shy and would barely speak but now they are all normal and doing awesome. So one problem though is that Mark and Jhona are living together but arent married so we were planning to teach them the Law of Chasity but were waiting to see how strong there testimony was in the church first before we dropped the LoC bomb. So we taught them once and at the end I asked them if they really thought the Book of Mormon was true and Mark asked us if he could share a story and we said for course. (A little back story first, they are really close with a recent convert of ours named Henry) So Mark said that he was walking one day just contemplating life and he saw Henry walking and he said Henry was just glowing then all of a sudden all these kids started running up to him and they just loved Henry so Mark just thought that Henry was basically an angel and Mark said that we knew Henry had something great so he decided to come to church. Then he said if he saw Henry at church he knew the church would be true. Looking back on this day though I remember Henry was late to church he didint even make sacrament meeting. But he came late and he told me that he thought he wasnt gunna go but he felt that he should so he did. So Mark saw Henry at church and he knew the church was true. So that was probably one of my coolest missionary experiences ever. BUT back to the law of chastity thing. So we taught them the Law of Chastity and they agreed to live it and they are now living it! So we are planning for a wedding and a baptism so hopefully everything works out well. SOOO yeah life is awesome. Im kind of exhausted from typing that soo I might just rest there and send one next week and some pics. But I love you all! You all are the best I miss you!
