And another successful
week! With helping the transfers last Thursday, we were at the South Bus
Terminal the whole day! Organizing the traveling missionaries etc was pretty
fun. This past week was a bit stressful I'll admit. We had a sister whose
companion is still in America! Sister Pito doesn’t have a companion and so we
are asking anyone and everyone if they can just work a day with Sister Pito, even
if just for a few hours etc. A little rough, but in the end we managed to find
people to work with the missionaries.
The work this past week
was maora gihapon (same old same old). We are receiving a lot more help from
the ward. Ward members are working with us and we are seeing a bit more success
in the establishment of the ward. Our new bishop also adds to the help. He is very
strict which makes things so much better!
Tatay Rico is still
progressing well. We are planning around March 25 for him. A new family came to
church last Sunday as well and we are looking at March 25 for them as well. One
of our investigators, si Gayford, is going through a really rough time right
now but in the end he asked us yesterday without warning if he can join our
church:) He has a good long way before he would be good for baptism but we
shall work with him.
We had a couple fun experiences
this past week. For example, we went to a laundry mat (for the first time) to
leave my polos. The sign said 20 pesos per kilo. I had 1.5 kilos. The lady was
like "sigi, 1.5 kilo....that’s 80 pesos". I called her out right
there and was like "why are you charging me double the price?!" That
led to an interesting conversation. This is a problem here BTW. The people will
charge us a lot more (or try to) because we are American. It is annoying.
I honestly feel like a
ton happened but I aint so sure if I have anything to say! Yeah my mind is kind
of black right now of things to say but rest assured things did happen.
I do hope that everyone
is doing good. I am doing well. Even if things are slow or fast I am still
good. Man it is already halfway through February! Pas Pas no?
Again I love you all.
