Hello everyone! It was fun to see lots of pictures from Thanksgiving! It looked like there were a lot of people at the house – including Payten and Kate!! Too cool!
The missionary work is going okay here in Las Pinas! We’re arranging about three weddings right now so that the couples can be baptized. There are various laws and cultural issues that sometimes incentivize couples to NOT get married, so when they have a desire to be baptized we need them to get married legitimately so that they can do so. Please keep them in your prayers so that they can receive baptism. Our bishop is awesome and he is helping them a lot, so we are very optimistic they will be able to do it!
The missionaries in this area before I got here were pretty diligent so there are some baptisms that should be coming up here either toward the end of December or mid-January! It just depends if they can follow the word of wisdom. We are teaching a family of nine people right now and they’re all doing awesome! Six of them could be baptized right now, but the rest would fall in place as they turn 8 years-old. They are suppppper cool. Super humble, and they are receptive to all of the stuff we have for them, which is amazing and then what is even more amazing is that they APPLY it!
Well that’s about it for this week. I’m missing you all a lot but am happy here and happy with the work that is being accomplished. I’m sorry to hear about the T-Birds losing in the semi-finals but it sounds like they had a great year and just came up a bit short of reaching their goals.
