HELLO EVERYONE!!!!! Yeah! see the subject heading??? I am now here in Bongabon Nueva Ecija... I miss the MTC so much!!! I miss the SAMUEL DISTRICT! But, We need to hasten the work of the Lord.. I am so blessed that the Lord choose me to represent Him..
Time really is flying so fast! it was a 3 hour Van Ride from Manila to our Mission home here in Tarlac! and guess what we've seen,. on our way, we've seen the Philippine Arena (owned by the Iglesia ni Cristo's, worlds biggest arena)
then... after a 3 hours ride... we finally came to our Mission Home!!! our Mission President and his Wife gave us a warm welcome!!! fed us delicious Lunch, Interviewed by our Mission President, and gave us some orientations. the we slept at the Apartment of the Assistants of the Mission President. the next morning, We had our Personal Study, more trainings, and Finally! We Met our 1st Companions or we call them Tatay, because they're our Trainers, and we are their Trainees, Tatay means Father!!! My Companion is an American, 20 years old, and he's from Alpine Utah, Name's Elder Armatage!!! Heavenly Father really answers our prayer!!! Why? My Companion is one of the answers... He's super Kind, Humble, EXACTLY OBEDIENT, Charitable, Patience and He Loves me. He's the BEST!!! He's way fluent in Tagalog than me. haha. I've learned a lot of things from him! :) Our area is in the Mountains...so, We have a lot of ADVENTURES here! I'm still struggling learning the Language. especially ILOCANO! haha. But little by little, I am learning sort of things here. and, Yeah, Yesterday was my 1st Sunday in our Branch, I was able to bear my Testimony, and introduce myself. I was a little bit nervous, but Thanks goodness, it went well. the people here are so nice!!! I am still surprised to see myself here in the Mission Field. and It's still weird that the people here is calling me ELDER. LOL. I'm still adjusting lots of things here. A recent convert here gave me a Scripture Case made of Cardboard, She's so Awesome! I love it! Later, Our Branch will be having a Christmas Party! and they want us to be there! So It'll be FUN! I Miss my Family and Friends Back Home! Please send me a Present this Christmas!!!
Keep In Touch. I LOVE You ALL!
Keep Doing What Is Right!!!
