Maligayang Pasko at Bagong Taon!
Merry Christmas to everyone back home and to everybody who reads this! It’s a humid 75 degrees here in Tanza Cavite, Philippines and Christmas is in full swing! A LOT has happened this week. Once again, I HAVE A NEW COMPANION. Elder Doloritos! He’s a super cool guy! He is also serving as the new District Leader of the new TANZA DISTRICT which comprises of six Elders. In Tanza, we now have 4 Elders, so the apartment is now full, which makes a good time for Christmas and the Holidays! The other two elders in the district are in a nearby town.
In ways of preparing for Christmas, we’re trying to have appointments, but it’s difficult because a lot of people go back to where they grew up. So we’ll end up visiting a lot of members I think, or we will do finding work if the situations line up correctly (ie. dinner appointments fall through or something). Also, the Tanza Branch had a little devotional and so we attended that a few days ago as well.
I get to talk to my parents in a few days! I’m so excited!!!!! I hope you all have a great Christmas. Tandaan ninyo si Jesus Christ! Remember Jesus Christ this season! He is the ultimate gift to us. Merry Christmas! ‘Til next week!
