Lots happening. We are expecting 3 baptisms on May 6th. we have been working really hard, and have started seeing some blessings in the area. we have been working with the members, and have been getting some good referrals! one is sister N, who's husband is a long time less active. she agreed to a lesson, and we then visited the chapel, the elders quorum presidents house (I got it wrong, we actually don't have any counselors in the branch presidency), and we mentioned it. turns out that after church, we went to our investigators house, and we saw the EQP visiting that less active member, in a real and loving way. it's been so exciting to see all the members coming to the aid of their less active friends. just like a big clock is run by little gears moving together, so does the church work by everyone working together for the common goal.
I have been good! Elder P is a stud, and is committed to exact obedience and working by faith. he speaks Tagalog, which I understand on a first grade level :) and I respond in Waray, which he now understands. I speak in Waray because that helps him improve in his language. so far, he's doing great. We are focusing on the Book of Mormon this week, so we can help him prepare to use the Book of Mormon to answer people's questions. He's also not half bad at cooking and cleaning, so that helps me a lot to learn about those things.
I have been doing great. We go to Guiuan this week for a baptismal interview, then next week, we go to TACLOBAN!!!! so excited to go back to my old zone and area! we have zone conference, and also have our zone interviews there. so, I'm pretty excited!
That's all. Not a lot of time today due to some preparation we have to do. Love you all!
