#1's Weekly Emails: Week #71

This is being sent early due to the fact that "my grandparents are tired and they won't go to bed until I send a weekly email". Very well. here is the weekly email.

So this week was an interesting one. 

Monday: Went and visited the S family. We shared with them. They're fine. 

Tuesday: We went out and shared with people. The usual. Got a couple of new investigators. Nothing too special happened. Shared with my good buddy, V again. He's still confused. Part of the Iglesia ni Cristo's doctrine is that Heavenly Father is God and Jesus Christ is just a person. And for some reason that is the most important thing in the world to him and he cannot believe that Jesus is God as well. So I just confused him more and gave him an assignment. 3 Nephi 11:14. Look it up. We'll see what happens with that one…. 

Wednesday: Total adventure. And not necessarily a fun one. We finished up personal study and were getting ready to go out and work in the morning when Elder C called and told us that Elder S was having an attack. We were like wha? And sprinted over to their apartment. We get there and find Elder S in a lot of pain. Seems like all the muscles in his body were cramping simultaneously and he had no control over them. He was having a hard time breathing. So we called one of the members who had a car and rushed him to the hospital in Subic. That was a very long car ride. We said multiple prayers and Elder C gave him a blessing while the member sped us there, weaving in and out of traffic and honking his horn all the way. We got to the hospital and they rushed him inside. We waited maybe 15 minutes and Elder C came out and told us that he was sleeping and that he was doing a little better. They found out that he has virtually no potassium in his body. That's pretty scary. But then the D's showed up and we all (including Elder C and Elder S) went to the mission home and ate waffles. They took us home and we went out to work. We went and shared with the F family. They're doing well. 

Thursday: Weekly planning. Then we went and had lunch at the W's house. It was sooooo yummy :) (Elder C and S missed out because they were still at the mission home). Then we went and worked again. We shared with C R again. She's awesome. We gave her a Book of Mormon and taught her about the Plan of Salvation. Then she told us that she's moving back to Manila. Darnit. But that she would text us every time she's back in San Marcelino so we can share with her. Works for me :) 

Friday: Katy Perry's Birthday (this is not important for me but it is very important for Sister M, so I wrote it in my planner haha) We had mission president interviews. Nothing special. But both President D and Sister D acted like I'm going home soon. Um not that soon... I still have 7 more weeks... :P We then went home and worked again. Got to go to a baptism and then walked around and were quite punted.... But that's okay. 
Saturday: Worked in the morning and got a new family of investigators that were from AMERICA. That was really weird. We taught lesson 1 half in English and half in Tagalog. That was weird. But turns out they live in Kent, Washington. hey! I could go visit them when I go home. Cool :) They're super nice and seemed really interested. We're gonna go back to them tomorrow. After lunch, we had MCM and talked about how the heck we're gonna help this branch become more unified. Hope it all works out.

Sunday: Brother L came to church again and he actually beat us there. YES! The S family seems to be thinking that they need to perfect their obedience to God's commandments. So A (one of the sons) wants us to teach him and K came to church. Everyone needs a good trial every now and then to keep them humble and to remember who's really in charge. 

Well that was my week. It was an interesting one for sure. But then again, every week in the mission is different. I know the church is true (Don't worry, Grandma, I'll explain to you why I say that when I come home). This is the ONLY true church on the face of the earth and that's why this is the fastest growing church right now. Because it's TRUE. You better believe it. 

Thank you for all of your love and support. Mahal ko kayong lahat. Ingat kayo palagi.
