So this week has been probably the best week so far in my mission. We had 17 lessons taught to investigators with a member and we found 9 new investigators including a family who was taught before we also had 9 investigators at church and to finish it off we had a baptism on Saturday. It was great! We taught so much and every single day was so busy. On Wednesday and Thursday we had exchanges with the zone leaders and since we are on a island an the zone leaders are in Manila they flew out here and we had threesomes two days in a row. Several of our days this week we had tons of amazing experiences. One lesson led to another, and another and we have been finding many new people to teach. 

One day we went to a part of our area and taught one of our new investigators. She is family with a Recent convert here and she is doing great. She is always at church reading the Book Of Mormon and really feels that it is true. After that while trying to contact a referral we talked to a family who was actually taught about a year and a half ago. We asked them if we could share a message with them and afterwards we asked them if we could return and they all agreed. We have been having many great experiences like that and next month we have several more baptisms lined up. We are just doing everything to help their faith and desire increase. 

For the Baptism his name is Ryan and his mom is a member but his dad isn't. He is 9 almost 10 and his mom has been inactive for some time but now she is active again. Ryan asked Elder Ordesta my companion to baptize him and me to confirm him in sacrament meeting. It was super cool and the first time I've been able to do that. It was also in Tagalog so ya it was very different. My first time confiming someone was in Tagalog. Ryan is great he is just super shy. But he is always at church and he reads the Book Of Mormon and is very smart. His Dad came to the baptism and we think that he felt something. We are going to try to follow up and hopefully teach him. He seemed to be pondering a lot at the baptism and listened very well to the talks given. It was a super cool experience. 

But the work is going great. Every single day here is just teaching teaching teaching we hardly ever have a single hour where we don't teach. My companion and I are working super good together and me and him have actually been friends since my first transfer in the field. So it was super cool to be able to work together. Ya every week we get a letter from President Oslter and are able to read it. He is a really good mission President and we just had our interviews with him on Saturday which went great. Here in Coron we are almost nonexistent in the mission because there is only 4 of us and we are on an Island far from Manila.  

Mahal ko po Kayo at Mag-eemail ako sa inyo sa susunod na linggo! Mag-Ingat po Kayo
