Hola! Its been 2 weeks here in the field. My adjustments were pretty good. Well about the work, its pretty good and tiring. We used to walk and walk under the blazing sun this week. My companion and I were very tired day after the day because of the heat. The thing is, we weren't able to find new investigators this few day. Well I know it will be easy for us to find but still pushing forward.

Well we had our Zone Training Meeting last Wednesday. I met the other missionaries in our zone and also one of the missionaries waiting for her visa for Peru, Sister Orani. We had a great training, learning and realizing the things we need to do as a consecrated missionary of the Lord in Angeles Mission. As a new missionary, I learned a lot of things I need to do especially on adjusting as a missionary. Well my companion helps me on a lot of things and on handling my stress,. Hahaha!

We had our Zone Interview with President and Sister Clark last Saturday. I'm so happy to meet them especially having some time to talk about my concerns and needs as a new missionary which President Clark really understands. My situation as a missionary who didn't have any MTC experience makes me so blank and curious which I guess based on my personality. I learn from President Clark on how to use the Progress Record especially on using it on missionary Council Meeting (MCM). I also love the "no bake" cookie of Sister Clark offered to us. I love it!

This Sunday was quiet amazing and partly bad i guess. Well our 3 progressing investigator, the Ursal Family whom we visited this week weren't able to attend Sunday Services, and that's a sad thing. But the thing is, members brought some investigators with them today, police men. Its cool but the problem is that they are not from our area. We had MCM and went too good for we were able to talk about the worker who will work with us this week and those who we will visit like members and investigators that live very far from the chapel.

Our work this Sunday was great for we were able to have a new investigator. She's Vea Ismaya from Bacolod who studies here in Angeles. Our lesson with here was great, she is an active listener and able to accept our baptismal date for her. It took us almost an hour but its okay, she's good. Well she's the only one we had yesterday.

We were able to clean our apartment today. Deep cleaning, which is a good feeling after all the hard work we had on cleaning the mess the previous missionary did. hahaha! Well I'm pretty well all this days. Please pray for Sister Vea and Ursal family and also for our future investigators. Work Work WORK! Love you all! Adios.

Love Lots!

Hi everyone! I'm now on Angeles Mission as my temporary assignment while waiting for my Visa. My companion here is Elder Arnold, where in Pandan Angeles City (Pandan Ward). I'm pretty good in here even though I didn't enter MTC. Its weird because I don't have any idea about how these things work. But my companion told me that I'm good which motivates me to press forward. Well on my first day here in Angeles, we had some orientation for us new missionaries. Its cool and trilling for my part, but i know i can do it then.

So President and Sister Clark, our mission president were so cool. I learn a lot from them, like the Assistants and the Couple Missionaries here. I learn about consecration which the mission wants us to do. I also learn about the 4L's of our Mission President which is to 1) Let go of Pride, 2) Love to Obey, 3) Learn the Gospel, 4) Leave the World Behind. I Love the way the Mission President assist us to be a consecrated missionary. They really guide us to be the Lords true disciples. I love here even though its only my temporary assignment. We even had a chance to work with the Office Elders during the evening that day.

Well here in the field is so sweet. We do Finding all the time because we don't have much investigators. Even though Finding is not really my thing because I'm not good on socializing, it really test my capability. I know I can do it. Still we had some progressing investigators who is really sweet to have. They even attended the church last Sunday.

So Sunday here in the field is do amazing to have. I bore my testimony on the congregation and happy to hear them too. I didn't tell them that I'm only on temporary which I think is cool not to. Hihihi! After the service, we had MCM and went straight to work after. The workers here were so cool, they really work wholeheartedly. Very warm, they're really hard on to missionary work. I love to work with them.

We have some kabahays here in our apartment. Our apartment is even on a compound were members were besides our house. We can even ask for food for them, love it. I had my laundry last Saturday wherein we were able to use washing machine from member whose besides our home. I have a lot of adjustments here in the field especially on sleeping. hahaha! But i think i can manage those things easily. I love the Ward and the Area even though its hard. I love missionary work. I love the work of the Lord. Pray for our investigators and all missionaries all over the world. I love you all!
