Wk 96 September 5, 2011
It was way good reading your emails this week. I got some good laughs. Some Filipinos gathered around my computer wondering what the white guy was laughing about.
1st off: Mother Good luck on your journey this month.
2nd: Father, I just love your emails they are always way funny. It sounds like you got some humble pie. I think your leadership analogy was great. Good job.
It’s been a good Monday today. I spend 350 pesos on pizza and pasta today, that’s a lot. That was nice for a change. The cashier lady gave me a weird look when I told her it was just me eating everything I ordered.
This weeks gone by really fast. I am having a hard time remembering anything that happened. Let’s seee.
Nanet one of our long time investigators that was supposed to be baptized in the next few weeks. She decided not to come so we tried to listen to her a lot, and just express our love. We will be going back to her again this next week so see how things are going.
Irma, a non-member mother of three member kids. Irma is our most progressing investigator at this time and she is AWESOME. She has been coming to church the past 3 weeks, and this last Sunday she had a remarkable experience. After church she explained what happened to her. Part of what happened to her is that she prayed that she would know if she should be baptized on the 24th of September or earlier. Well She got a pretty solid answer and so she will be planning on getting baptized the 17th of September. We are really excited for her.
I really like that scripture Kyle. "Welcome home thou good and faithful servant, now enter into my rest." I will also make that my goal as my mission is coming to an end. We watched the Jospeh Smith Video the other day with one of our investigators. I don't think Joseph Smith slacked at all up to the time of his death.
I wish I could write more but my mind is kind of scattered right now and we have a family home evening coming up really soon and I still need to wash my clothes. So I will leave it at this for now.
I love you all and talk to you next week.
PPS Kyle here is the correct translation.
