April 8, 2013

Pamilya ko,
Masaya ako na gusto po ninyo ang pictures ko. Sorry that I haven't taken any other pictures...the weeks are so busy...but I will try to get some more this next week and share them with you. We live in a house. The house we live in here is really nice. There are three bedrooms in the house...I will take pictures this week and send them next week. It is in a really nice area too...away from all the noise, looking out to the rice fields.

This week was a rough one...of all the work, we had an average of two lessons per day. kawawang araw (sad day)...We are trying so hard to find new investigators and meet with all our less actives. There is a lot to do, but we are struggling to do the missionary work (bringing in new members) we had a One Day Mission, with the branch. This is where the branch works together to go out to visit the less actives. We had a really great turn out of members and there was a lot of blessings that came from their efforts. I hope that we can really get the members to work together to reactivate some of their members, so the missionaries can focus on finding new members...but with time. We also had a baptismal invitation accepted this week. But it will take time to help them reach the baptismal waters...but we are excited to have a progressing investigator. was really great...I will tell you about the only thing was watching all the excitement with the Catholic church. And of course we went out to share the message about the Savior. But the holiday "Easter" in itself is not celebrated here...but the birth of Christ is.
I think that is everything...thank you so much for everything you do. I am extremely grateful for you all and for the love and support that I receive from you spiritually, mentally and physically. God bless you! Mahal na mahal kita!
Ingat palagi po,
Sister Pace
