#1's Weekly Emails: Week #63

Trying to think of a heading but this week was one of the most boring weeks ever because....

I got sick! 

That's about all I have to say about this past week. We were stuck at home from Tuesday until Friday. 
And then Saturday, we went out and worked, finally! I missed working :) 

We went out in the afternoon to check on the C family. We climbed up and up and up to their house on top of the mountain. They were all doing fine and were super excited for their baptism later that afternoon.
I keep thinking about that family and how amazing it was that we were the ones that found them. They literally live on the top of the mountain. Our area used to be the Assistant's area but they never climbed to the top of the mountain. They stayed at the bottom. We were the first ones to climb up there and once we got there, there they were, just sitting and waiting for us. 

Their baptism was great and Sister C said that she was so so so so happy that she made the decision to be baptized. Her husband, J M, will be baptized on October 4th with their other daughter J-J. Yay for the Gospel :) haha

Sunday was good too. We went to church and worked afterwards. We found out that the L family had been having some hard times while we had been stuck inside, so we went and shared with them as well. Nanay is still going strong. In the past when members of her old church have come over they've said some pretty mean things to her to try to get her back to their church. And in the past, she's kind of just taken it and accepted whatever they've said. But now, it's awesome to see the difference. She is confident now and she knows without a doubt that this is the true church. And so because of that she just teases them when they come over. She's so much happier. It's amazing what a knowledge of the truth can do for you.

I love this church so much. It is the only true church and the only true gospel. No ifs, or buts. 

Thank you for all of your prayers and thoughts in my behalf. Mahal ko kayong lahat. 

Ingat kayo! Until next week! (Promise, I'll have more news :))
