This week was awesome when it came to investigators' Book of Mormon reading. Sometimes its a challenge to get them to REALLY read the book of Mormon. They need to really know how important it is in order to get really converted and not leave as soon as they join the church. The Lago family and the Uball family didn't just read the book of Mormon but really searched and they know how important of a book it is! So I was very happy about that.
I am sure you heard of the Mayweather and Pacquaio fight and that happened to be during our church... So our church attendance at the Ward was not the greatest. Pacquaio is HUGE here the whole city like shut down during his fight. No tricycles no jeepneys. They all support their fellow Filipino. We did have a surprisingly amount of strong members who still came despite Pacquaio. He has done a lot of good here and is an inspiration to this country!
Its kinda funny here in Roxas there are two missionaries from West Point and one from Hopper. No other Americans just 3 of us less than 5min from each other back home!!! Pretty crazy!
I cannot believe its almost Mothers day and I get to see my awesome family again. You guys sounds amazing in your emails and I am so excited to hear your voices!!!! I love you all so much and just so lucky to be a missionary and I am here to make the most of this opportunity!
