Golden? Found One! - Week 61.Serving in Bulua

Kamusta?!!!!! Well, this was a great and Spiritual week for me and Elder Abad! Whew! We're having a great time indeed. Haha!!!!

During the week, we tried our best to find people that have been prepared to hear the Gospel. It was hard since most of the people that we I2Led either are busy or not interested. Though, we had lots of experiences where we testified and their countenance changed. There's this one sister we I2Led and she was busy. She told us to go to other houses instead. Then, we testified and her aura changed. She started to welcome us, asked questions, and just set another time for us to go back. It was really cool to experience chances like those. But, our greatest experience this week happened when we were on our way to our appointment. We passed by a man in a store who's taking a break. For some reasons, while we are walking past by him, we opened our mouths and in a few moments, started talking to him. He's tagalog so he greeted us warmly. Then, as we introduce ourselves to him and our purpose, he told us that we found the right guy. Elder Abad and I looked at each other, and there, at the store, sat, and shared to him. First thing he asked, what is the purpose of life. Great question! He's so golden! He started asking us questions of the soul. After the lesson, we invited Brother Ruel to come to church and he agreed. Sunday came, and he texted us that he's not feeling well. Later, as the sacrament meeting started, he came! We were surprised! He told us that he felt not going but since he made an appointment with us, he tried his best to make that promise. We taught him that same day and was able to commit him to be baptized! He really felt the Spirit and he even offered the closing prayer. He felt good and even told us that hopefully, God would embrace him. Elder Abad and I really felt that Heavenly Father prepared him and we're grateful for the "still small voice" who helped us recognize him while we are passing by. It was a great experience!

This morning, we had a zone activity. Caving!!!! It was tiring for sure. My companion loved the trek. It's been a workout for real! Haha! I've attached some pictures too! It was really fun. Hope there's a next time. 

This week, we had some great times in the mission. I think this is one of the best week I've ever had. Maybe because we're seeing how the Lord is working with us. It's just great!!!! And, it's so fulfilling to see how the Spirit works. Haha. I am having a lot of fun here in the Mission. I'm getting to know myself even better. It's been so fast. I'm already out 14 months! It's sick! But, there's a lot of things to do.

We've hit our work this past week so it was really exhausting and tiring. But all's worth it. Sharing the Gospel is one of the best experience I ever had! Hehe...

So, that's all. Would love to hear from all of you! Take care and have a great week!
