Yeah I cant believe for one second its March already!! Crazy!
This week went well! The progression of our branch is amazing!! Yesterday we pull up to the meetinghouse and I see a bunch of young men standing outside the entrance! Usually we're one of the very first ones there so that shocked me a little bit! And then we go to find out that they are ushering people in just like we did when I was in young mens! And that was just super super super exciting to see that! I was probably more excited than I should have been but it was cool! And then the meeting started EXACTLY at 9, which in the Philippines is really rare! And then to top it all off, the missionaries didn't participate in the sacrament program, which means the branch's own priesthood holders were doing it all! Holy cow it was an exciting thing to see!!!!

This last week I went on exchanges with my district leader, Elder Larson in Villaverde. We had a really good time and learned a lot! One thing I noticed was how prepared one of their investigators was! We taught the Law of Tithing and Law of Chastity and she was so willing to ask questions and learn by the spirit! She's getting baptized this week and I can tell that she was definitely prepared before the missionaries even started talking to her.

We also had some RM's from the branch come work with us and they were super talented! This work is the best when we have support from the branch!

We have some investigators here that are so close to accepting the gospel! One is Nanay Jesusa. She's so humble and willing to learn and knows that The Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet, I think she might just struggling a little bit with the social aspect of a change like this!
But I love love love being a missionary! I always think I wouldnt want to be anywhere else right now! Even though there are some crazy people we talk to that just make us laugh, its a good life.
Take care and have a great week!
