Find Them that Will Receive You - Week 79.Serving in Alubijid 2nd

Find Them that Will Receive You - Week 79.Serving in Alubijid 2nd

Hi everyone! Well, Elder Somoray and I are doing well here... It's kinda funny when people would like to change my companion's name to "Elder Samurai" 'coz they say it's easier to pronounce.

Anyways, this week was great! We'll be having a baptism on the 26th! Wee! He's so progressing! He's Brother B. He was referred to us by her aunt. He wasn't baptized in the church since his active grandma died when he was 6. His family is less-active but he's aware that his family are members. It's his first time to be taught though and he's progressing! We're teaching him together with his brother who is a less-active as well as their cousin.

Our other IBDs still have some concerns so we still need to focus on them. As for the Less-Actives, they are progressing! 10 Less-Actives in our area came to church last Sunday! It was really great to see them at church. Some of them have been already interviewed by Bishop. It's really great to have the help and trust of the members here. We were invited last Sunday by the ward council as they prepare their ward mission plan. I'm looking forward to the progress of the work here.

In our work one day, we did what President counseled to us, to "open our mouths". While going to our appointment, we were able to talk to a two people. As we talk and told them our purpose, the other guy invited us in their house. We were a little hesitant since we're on our way to our next appointment. We just opened our mouth so as not to miss any opportunities. We were just planning to have a return appointment with them. He was eager to invite us in and get to know his wife. They let us sit down, and Elder Somoray and I agreed to teach them right there and then. Turned out, they have been prepared by the Lord! They are a family. We'll never forget the words in brother's prayers, he said, "I wish they wouldn't get tired of visiting us here and sharing God's words", though he said it in Cebuano. Nevertheless, it was a spirit-filled night for all of us. We were all edified. After the lesson, Elder Somoray and I were so happy. We would never find people like them have we not open our mouths. It was so great! We're preparing them to be baptized by next month. I can't wait to talk more about their progress.

That's our week. We just had our zone interview last week. Everything went fine. President focused on obedience and I give salute to that! Hahaha... We're really enjoying our time here. It's so cool to be full-time missionary... So, till next week again!

Thank you all! :) Have a great week! :D
