This week was filled with so many miracles...some really hard to accept and others that just filled us with joy. This week was a blessing as we went out to focus on our investigators and help them to accept the gospel more freely in their lives.We were able to strengthen the testimony of many of those that we love and care for and what a blessing it is t see their testimony grow little by little. We had a hard time on Wednesday when all of our appointments fell through...we had to accept the fact that we needed to improve in our efforts...so we made some resolutions and went to work...little by little we have seen the blessings from our labors. On Thursday we went to Legazpi, in order to take Sister Siola'a to the thyroid doctor...it was a very long day of waiting and traveling and I ended up being sick at the end of the day. We had one of our investigators have his baptismal interview...we are having a baptism on Saturday!!! it was so awesome to see the GIANT smile on his face as he walked out of the interview :) We put a lot of effort into getting our investigators to attend church...the problem is...it's election week. and so we did all we could. And we fasted and prayed for our area and those that we are teaching....the blessings were so beautiful. it is so important to always have faith that the Lord will fulfill all that you ask Him...if you ask in faith. We prayed that our "golden family" would attend church. They didn't show up to sacrament, but we got a call during Gospel Principles...they were on their way :) It was such a blessing to have their family attend church and feel the spirit. they have so many questions and the branch is really excited about their family too. We saw the hand of the Lord working through us to bring about the blessings of the gospel in the lives of others.
