I am exhausted.. But it's good because it's all from the work! So the week was pretty weird because all the people/investigators keep surprising me!
We have been teaching this family that is basically golden. They are super poor though so it's way hard for all of them to be able to make it to church. But they all accepted the baptism invitation and four of them are going to be baptized on the 9th but we had a super weird experience when we stopped by this week and the dad of the family was on the phone and when we got there he quickly hung up and we asked him who it was he told us a super long story of how he is from Mindanao which is like 100% muslim-philippines and he said when he was younger he stowed away to Manila and found his wife and moved here and that call that he just hung up was him talking to his family for the first time in 24 years! What the freak? But then we ended up having a super good lesson and they are all good for baptism now haha
Also we tried contacting a former investigator that lives down some crazy road and we had been asking tons and tons of people if they knew this person and nobody knew who she was.. the teaching record said her husband was stabbed and now she is a widow but long story short we found her! And she totally lied to our faces and said that she didn't know who we were looking for.. it's okay though we are gonna stop by again.
Are area is doing super good and miracles just keep happening and happening our investigators have basically been asking us to be baptized this week! I never thought that would happen but these people are super prepared!
I also fell down like 2 times this week tripping over a stupid little plank bridge and then some random pipe in the middle of the road.. it was rough..
Our baptism this week was super fulfilling because it was the same sister that had been hiding from us about a month ago and then after a little bit asked to be baptized and now she is a member! It's so sweet to see the change in peoples lives! Also when she was bearing her testimony at the baptism she said that hopefully her getting baptized will pave the way for her family as well. So I guess that means we have work to do!
So hammocks happened this week. Yeah we bought ghetto filipino hammocks and they were definitely filipino sized haha There was also like 6 power outs this week they call them brown outs here. Because "when the power goes off all the browns come out" it was so true everyone was outside when the power was off! haha
And that's about it for my week. I'm having a ever constant battle with this super ugly dog that keeps getting into our yard and I will probably take some pics this week so you can see how ugly this dog is but it definitely hates me as much as I hate it hahaha but ear plugs are my salvation at night!
Palanga ta ka!
