So this last week there was a huge change in things here. My trainer Elder De Leon got transferred an is also training, again. So we both went to Laoag to pick up our new trainees. We spent Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Laoag. We had a lot of fun there and spent time with the missionaries there. We got to eat McDonalds a lot, which normally is gross but now Macdo is a blessing.
We got trained on how to be trainers and were fed by President and Sister Andrada, which was awesome! So I got my new companion, my son, Elder Pati-on. He is pretty cool. We have some things in common and he and I get along really well. He is excited to be a missionary and is really good at English, he really helps me out and actually teaches me a lot about Tagalog.
So we got a referral from the Zone Leader about someone who is super ready to hear the gospel and is super excited to meet with us so we went over Saturday and we were told by his mom that he wasn't home but would be home Sunday. So we went to church and church was so amazing! But after church we went to go see him again, our referral. And once again we were told he wasn't home and wouldn't be home this time until Friday. They also gave us three more referrals to go see people. So hopefully we can meet with him on Friday.
I know that no matter what happens, if we are able to teach him or not, then the fact that we are trying could have some impact on their family. Our example to them or anything could help bring them unto Christ. Alam ko na totoo ang Simbahan ito. Alam ko na sa pamamagitan ng susunod ng Halimbawa ni Jesucristo magiging mas masaya tayo at mas mabuti tayo sa ating buhay. Sa pangalan ni Jesucristo, amen.
