This week we had three baptisms on Sept 11th. Which reminds me that Kyle had 3 baptisms too. Tell me how that went. Ours went really well. We baptized 3 single adults. Rhea, Geneva and Dave. Rhea is a super quiet girl. She was a referral from a member in our ward. After every baptism they give the people that were baptized a chance to bear their testimony. We were a little nervous for her and how she would do up there in the front of everyone. Went she got up to bear her testimony she wasn't shy at all, and gave the most beautiful testimony. It was really awesome seeing each one of the people we baptized get up and bear their testimony. Both Dave and Geneva cried as they talked about the change that had taken place in their life.
We will be baptizing Geneva and Dave's mother on Oct 2nd. Their mother is such an amazing women. Usually investigators have concerns or something that you can adapt the lesson to. But Eva is such a perfect investigator. The other day we were going to leave her to read Alma 36 about Alma's Repentance Journey but we forgot. Welp our next lesson we said...sorry we forgot to leave you something last time. She just said ah that’s alright I decided to read Alma 36. Elder Booth and I were way surprised she read the chapter we wanted to give her. We gave her a high five and then she pretty much taught us from Alma 36. They are a super amazing family.
This week has been a normal week in the office. On Tuesday I do all the personal orders of missionaries...Quads, DvDs...etc...On Wednesday I take the car and go to the boat dock and pick up all the mail. Then to the BPI bank to send to the church. On Thursday we go to SM city super mall and send letters, and buy supplies. Friday I drive to all the transportation ports and send cargo to all the missionaries on Panay. That is pretty much what goes down every week.
We eat a lot more in the office. Mac Dos, all you can eat rice with meat. It is affecting my weight. I gained the forty pounds back that I lost and am back at 210. Nah jk. I weighed myself yesterday and healthy pa.
We really get fed alot here though in Molo. It takes about 20 mins for the lesson we teach...but then they have to give us a marianda/snack which takes like another 20 minutes to eat. So it takes about an hour at each appointment.
Today is Elder Booth’s birthday (he's from Moapa Valley to answer your question mom) We are going to go eat at Pizzario in a few minutes. Pizza is a rare occasion so we are all really stoked.
Mother I asked Elder Booth if he knew of any sandals...He just said that they were BaWAL(not allowed anymore...since President got mad at me last time for wearing them.)
Leah! I still haven't heard how your journey in the Gawapagos was. Send pictures huh?
Heidi how is the belly and the new house and Chloe Ashton and Oli? Kierston how’s piano? Mom, Dad...How are things with you?
