This week went by really fast. We have been really bust in our area lately trying to find new investigators. We have been talking to a lot of people and sharing the gospel and trying to set return appointments. Most of the time we get rejected but on the other hand we have found some great people who appear to be very interested in our message. We talked to one guy named Joey. We Just recently moved here to Pasay and he sells corn for a living. He pushes a cart around with corn all day long and sells it to whoever will by it. He is a very cool guy and we are going to be visiting him later tonight. When we talked to him he was very welcoming and very nice to us. In excited so go visit him tonight along with another one of our new investigators Raymond. Last week while trying to find the house of a guy that we talked to we met Raymond. We introduced ourselves and asked him if we could share our message with him. He agreed and we began teaching him right then and there. He was very receptive and had a couple of questions for us. We are going to visit him later tonight as well. 

Yesterday we also taught Jancel again. She is doing very well. She came to church yesterday and she has been reading her Book Of Mormon. We began teaching her the Plan Of salvation last night and we talked about where we came from. As we were closing the lesson we asked her if she had any questions and she did. She asked if after death if our body and spirit will be separated forever of if the will be joined together again. We told her that because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that all of us will be resurrected. When we told he that she got a big smile started laughing and said "Ang galing" which is kinda like great or awesome! We are also teaching Sister Jackie. Sister Jackie is married to a Recent Convert in our area and ever since they got married last December she has been being taught by missionaries. Because Jackie's family has been Catholic for a very long time she is kinda hesitant about being baptized even though she has a testimony, reads the Book Of Mormon, prays, and attends church. Last week though when we taught her she we asked her again about her preparation for her baptism. She seemed a little more prepared for it but she is still uncertain. The time will come though when she decides to be baptized. 

This week was a pretty good week. We had a lot of great things happen in our area and we found some more investigators. The work is slow and steady but things are looking better.
