Today we got the T-List and Elder Costacio will be transferring, but that is pretty much what we were expecting since we spent three months together and he has been here longer than I have. We've had a lot of fun in our companionship and I have seen him make a lot of improvements in becoming a better missionary in our time together. Anyways, this last week of ours was fairly busy. We went on splits twice:
On Tuesday after District Meeting, I worked with Elder Navarro in Lamut to help him to become comfortable in leading his area (because his tatay is transferring) and he did a good job of that. We also had a dinner appointment again at the 'American house' and Tatay Balubbal saw my nametag and said that he still remembered Dad so I thought that was pretty cool.
On Thursday, we had splits in Bagabag and I was with Elder Volpe again because I had a baptismal interview to do. We also had a combined FHE with the Lamut elders and it was with the Valdez family, which is actually the family of Nanay Esperanza (the 80 year old nanay who I interviewed for her baptism last month) so that was fun too. I kind of miss having four elders in the ward because this is my only area that it has been just two of us haha.
L to R: Elders Volpe, Me, Costacio, Saguire, Larona, Navarro
Saturday the SA had an activity and hiked to the falls so we joined them for that. We also attended the baptism in Solano (I apologize if all these names of places is confusing to keep up with but the baptism was for Jupelin-the one I interviewed-because they don't have a baptismal font in Bagabag.).
Yesterday I wasn't given much preparation to do either but I talked in sacrament meeting and then I taught Sunday School because the guy who normally teaches wasn't there....And that basically sums up my week. Jarone came to church yesterday for the first time in a while which was good. His brother Khanejie has kind of lost interest in us teaching him but Jarone said he still wants to be baptized so hopefully he'll start coming to church more consistently.
Those falls tho (They looked cooler last time...)
So yeah, time is still flying. I don't feel like I'll be starting college in 7 months but I guess I must be because my parents have already started to e-mail me a lot lately about that kind of stuff hahaha. And President McArthur S/O to you for updating me with all the BYU info, now I just need to figure out what I am actually doing ha but anyways have a good week erryone. Wednesday I get a new companion so that's exciting. Love y'all. Peace out.
