I really want to start by wishing all the mother's out there a Happy Mother's Day! I know that I've been blessed with a WONDERFUL mother and no offense to all the other moms, but she's the best!
But this last Saturday we had an AWESOME baptismal service for our investigator, Brother Francis and the other baptismal candidates of Elders Higgins and Antenorcruz! It was so good to see such an awesome person enter the waters of baptism! Elder Pandaog and I were super psyched!!! His testimony at the end was also very powerful! He expressed to us his desire to serve a mission and we hope and pray he will be able to do that!
Last Monday, President called me into his office and said the Lord had called me to be an Assistant to the President. And since that day, its been super busy! We've been doing a lot of trainings and planning. So that means I'll be here in Cauayan probably until the end of my mission. And we'll have the opportunity to "train the new mission president" although, I'm pretty much 100% sure that he'll be training us more than anything! haha This has already been a humbling experience and a time of self-evaluation.
Not much else to say besides that I know this is the work of the Lord! I'm super sad to be leaving this area and our investigators, but I'm excited for the new things and adventures I'll be having! Heavenly Father puts us in positions for us to grow. I've seen that in my time here and I know its true. We may not understand why things happen to us but "trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding"
Love you and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY again!
