Wk 98 September 19, 2011
This week started of pretty awesome, and then got awesomer, and then exploded with awesomeness today when our whole zone was invited to eat at a members house. Let’s start though with the first awesome.
Awesome: One Wednesday we went down to Iloilo for leadership training. It is always fun going to Iloilo. It is kind of like a vacation almost. It’s super fun seeing everyone and learning and telling stories. The whole way down to Iloilo I talked to a man from Germany. He was a pretty funny kid. 25 years old his name was Karl. When he said his name is sounded like Kall because of the accent. It was fun having the opportunity to share the gospel in English. There are very few times that happens here. After the trainings, Elder Misbach, my old comp, the AP if you didn't know, and I went out working. It was way fun to be back together again. We went around and just tracked really big houses and practiced different techniques. It was really enjoyable. Elder Misbach is an awesome guy. Love um. Amen.
Awesomer: When I got back on Saturday we had Mar's baptism. The baptism went really well. The branch had a good turn out. I was the one to baptize which is a real privilege. The water in the font was about 3 feet which was a little bit of a challenge. Good thing Mar was really good at doing the limbo so we were able to baptize him first try. After the baptism, he was a little bit shy to bare his testimony and we forgot to tell him that he would be bearing his testimony after. Everyone just kind of shouted at him while he was up in front of everyone telling him to say what he felt. Mar kept on saying it felt good. Nami nami ang pamutchug. It was a great feeling. His family was really excited for him and are planning on going to the Temple soon with all their kids to be sealed.
We will be preparing Irma and Gracelee and as soon as Alfonso gets back from Manila we will be preparing him also. He gets back....today. They will all be getting baptized on the 24th of September. We decided to exercise some faith and do a combined baptism and activity after the baptism. Our plan is to have all the members invite friends to watch the baptism and after have a talent show.
Kyle I remember you told me once how you held a talent show and one of the talents was riskay dancing. We are praying that everything will work out and that it will be a success. Yoohoo.
It is weird thinking about how things will be coming to an end very shortly. Someone told me that I should be signing up for school about now. BLAA. That’s a little weird after not going to school for 3 years now. The other day one of our members came up to me and asked me to solve a math problem 3x/5=3x or something like that. It took me the whole gospel principles class to solve. But I solved it I’ll have you know. :).
Thanks for the emails. Palangga eot ang kamu tanan. makita kat ing nakon sa pila ka adlaw ina kamon kato. :)
