Magandang tanghali po

A couple weeks ago we OYMed a guy named Paul. Just two weeks ago we saw him again and we started teaching him. We invited him to come to church with us. On Sunday the 15 of March we walked over to his home and he was sitting outside all dressed up waiting for us 15 minutes before we said we would be there. He also came to church with us yesterday. We Finished teaching him the restoration last week and we have already given him pamphlets about the restoration, plan of salvation, gospel of Jesus Christ, word of wisdom and law of chastity and he has read them all. Every time we see him he asks for a new one because he already read the others we gave him. He has also been reading the Book Of Mormon and has accepted our invitation to be baptized. We also just found another guy named Jepoy. We talked to him on Friday and asked him if we could share a message with him. He said yes and on Saturday he rode his motorcycle to the church where we taught him. He wanted to come to the church to one see it and two so that there wouldn't be so many distractions but instead he could focus and have it quite. It was cool to see him take the time to go all the way to the church to listen to our message. He expressed some things to us and how he wants to change his life. He really wanted to go to church but had something yesterday so he couldn't come but he said he will for sure be there next week. We are really finding some people who are very serious about the message and learning about the gospel. OYMing is also a very important tool because many of these people we found through OYMing and actually originally oyming another person. The OYMs branch out and we find more then one person and have found some who really want to know!!

So here in the Philippines many people have roosters outside their home that are chained up like pets. One day while walking down a eskinieta or basically a ally way. This rooster attacked my leg as I walked by it. It just kept walking because its on a lease so it cant go far but it was super unexpected! My Companion though it was pretty funny! And it was!

Love you all and have a great week!!!!
