Well transfers have come!!! It was a very busy week for me very slow and very stressful but it was great!! I am still here in the Same area of Calbayog and I am still a ZL (Zone Leader) but my comp is Elder Apsay he has been in the mission 6 months and I am training him to be a ZL. It is so great. He is from Negros Occidental
Sunday: So on sunday Elder Intos left for Tacloban so I no longer had a comp…..I was in a threesome with the elders that live with us.
Monday: It was a great day on Monday we had a good pday and did all our good pday activities and in the afternoon we went and taught the Serito Family about the WOW (Word of Wisdom). It was a great lesson. They are all super attentive and really willing to participate they even take notes as we teach it is so cool!!!!
Tuesday: Was transfer announcement. And I found out who my new companion was and all the info in the whole zone and mission. Because they send us the transfer lug which has all the transfers on it. Elder Quirante is now a ZL so good for him I am really excited for him but he is super stressed out now but i know that he will do great. He was born a leader!!! AND Elder Arienda (the elder that I trained) is now training a new missionary!!!! Super awesome!!! I am really proud of him!!! So he went to Tacloban to get his new comp and get trainings so Elder Quirante hung out with me that day until he transferd the nest morning!
Wednesday: Was transfer day so all the transfering missionaries went to their new areas and Elder Apsay came here to Calbayog he arrived at about 5:30.
Friday: Me and Elder Apsay had a great lesson to the Serito family we taught about the 10 commandments.
Then we went and taught Bro Bal about faith and charity. That was a super good lesson and it was so cool to watch Elder Apsay teach and everything!! He was so amazed at the end of the lesson as we were going home he told me that Brother Bal was an amazing investigator!! That is very true! He is so prepared!!! In my whole mission I have never had an investigator like Brother Bal – he is amazing!!!
Sunday: We had a great sunday we only had 1 investigator Bro Bal….it rained super hard on Sunday so that is why no one really came….that is what it is like here in the Philippines when it rains no one goes out…. But we did have another really good lesson to Bro Bal that night. He brought up some concerns and questions that he had it was so great and they were really good questions too and some really hard ones haha like: -Why was Jesus baptized in his adulthood -Why is the age of accountability 8 -What are secret combinations -and many more. His questions stemmed from 2 things; he read the talk of President Nielson “The Book Of Mormon what would your life be like with out it” and he also has a had a lot of persecution from his friends and family and that caused him to fall upon some anti-Mormon literature…..so we talked to him all about that but he knows that what he saw and read is wrong! He has a very strong testimony!!!
Well I hope you guys are all doing well and staying happy and safe!!
That Lord Loves all of us!! Remember His Grace is sufficient!
We are headed up to Tacloban today and I know I have 2 packages there in the mission office for me. Thank you so much!!
Love you all so much!
