Week #77 - “If You Want To Know the Lord, Go to Work For Him”

February 8, 2016
Hey Everybody! This was a good week for us in Tangalan! We've got some wonderful investigators who are progressing and who accepted baptismal dates for March! Their names are Angemea, Kiah, and Laurance. They are all around the age of 15-17 and they have family members and friends who are members. They are just awesome and we're excited to be teaching them.

This week we did some tracting but honestly didn't have very much success with that, so I'm glad we have some great investigators to teach to help keep our spirits up. Tuesday we watched a missionary training video which is like watching an action movie when you are a missionary. haha I love to see videos that are filmed in Utah, it's so great to see "home". and of course it its great to hear from general authorities also and be inspired and remotivated in the work.

The week went by super quick. After Tuesday the days just flew by and before I knew it Sunday was here again. Even though we didn't have too much success with tracting I did feel like I have improved a lot with talking to people. The words just seemed to come out easy when I introduced the message to them. We had a good laugh walking down this road towards a house when we saw a little boy run out to their fence and lock it then ran back haha Guess they were sending a message! Its not very difficult to see the "Kano"  in a white shirt walking down the road.

We visited a lot of members who we haven't visited with before and one of them was not home at the time but we met her brother outside their house and ended up sharing with him and he was a super cool guy. His marital situation is a little mixed up right now but hopefully we can help him get his house in order. On Saturday these two members fed us a really good dinner and man I was stuffed. The next day was Sunday and we went to Kalibo for Stake conference. Our investigators came with us and the meeting was cool with a member of the Seventy who spoke. President and Sister aquino spoke and sister Aquino said "this will be our last stake conference with you before we go home (she was smiling), I'm not trunky, I'm just excited." That's how I have felt a lot lately.

Transfers are now on Mondays and apparently can happen whenever President gives us a call, so no more 6 week intervals. Today is transfer day. My trainer Elder Fogavai is going home today as well which is crazy because he was only 6 months out when I entered the mission. Seems not long ago at all! That's all for this week! Love and miss you all! Elder Rasmussen
