HEY family!! this week has been great! a lot of our investigators are in pinyahan which is the neighborhood that we live in so its nice being close to all of them. one of our investigators - jonathan o'dell is super funny. he's definitely our favorite investigator. whenever we give him an invitation he says no.. but we tell him every time we're not leaving until he says yes. he talks about why he can't/doesn't want to and we tell him about how he can and should. anyway every time he ends up saying yes and every time he says yes we know he's going to follow through. he's awesome, super honest and so nice. we can tell he really likes us and respects us. he's about 30-35 years old and his family lives in iloilo. he's just here working. we really think if he gets baptized he can become a leader in the church. he's really great. he makes us laugh every time we teach him.
the other day we were teaching this one lesson and my companion, elder de dios, was trying to get contact information from three people that we were teaching when this little girl tapped me on the shoulder. she was probably six and she just started talking to me. she asked me where i was from and i said "america, siguro iyan ang dahilan kung bakit ang pangit ko" just as a joke and she said "hindi..pogi ka" ;') hahahahaah it was sooo cute! she reminded me of bo.. anyway i gave her a restoration packet and told her to take it to her parents and have them read it.. we haven't heard anything from them yet.
everything is great over here, i love being a missionary! i feel like im learning tagalog and how to teach effectively really fast..
this is one of the people that we baptized this week! we had one other baptism. this lady's name is editha enolpe and the other baptism we had was sister evelyn cariaga. the other picture is just typical street view of where we walk around all day
