Rejoice!... Through ups and Downs of Life!

Hello Everyone!
Well, It's Monday again! And I have A Great News for all of you!!!
Last Wednesday when our Zone Leaders announced that,
My Heart was really Jumping Up and Down! Elder Naylor and I were so Happy, that we are still staying together for another 6 Weeks. So Awesome!!!
And also, last Saturday, One of our Amazing solid Investigator Sister Jaycee got baptized!!! Hurray! Few Members showed up because they had an Activity at the Stake. But The Baptismal Service was still Amazing!
One of our Recent Convert here in Lupao was called to speak for her Baptism.
She shared a Great Talk! Sister Jaycee was really Happy that Day!
Another Good News!, 3 of our Faithful and Smart Investigators passed the Interviews! I knew that they will pass it. I know how the Spirit touched their Hearts, I know how they got their Testimonies, I know their Weaknesses, I know their Strengths. And I also know that they are Ready to enter the Waters of Baptism on the 5th of September! I Learned a lot from these 3 Investigators.
They Loved the Church, and They are all engaged in the Activities in the Church. The Ward has had some Changes Yesterday... We had our Ward Conference! The Chapel was filled with 118 Members and 7 Non Members.
Some of Our Recent Converts joined The Ward Choir and performed a Great Musical Number! Well, Our Bishop and 1st Counselor got released yesterday, And one of The Best Person here in Lupao was called to serve as a Bishop. Our New Bishop is Bishop Ducusin. I really Love Our Last and New Bishop. We get along really well. And The Ward has New Goals.
The Ward is Planning to give Callings to Our Recent Converts which is Really Good! It will help them a lot.
It seems that I'm still struggling with my Attitude, and I think I still need to work with My Christlike Attributes more.
We had some difficulties last Week as a Companion. I am the Problem, And I don't want that to affect our Relationship as a Companion. I Love Elder Naylor, And I am so Grateful that We will be together for another 6 Weeks. I do admire his Personality, and Love his humor. One of our Strength is Our Bond as Companions and will be, until We say Goodbye from one another. 
We had a Zone Activity just a couple hours ago. It was really Fun!
There's some new Faces in our Zone, because some of them got transferred last Thursday.
We were Studying Real Growth through Obedience, and It reminded me of my Trainer a lot. I am so Grateful for his Example and Obedience. For He taught me The Do's and Dont's in this Mission. It was a Big Blessing for me. I Love My Trainer so much. Obedience will really set us free from Guilt, Regrets, and Sins. So Please, BE OBEDIENT!

That's All for today...

Transfer Or Stay?

Hello Everyone???
Well, Rain was all over the Philippines last week, until now it is still raining.
I have some Announcements...
3 Of our Solid Progressing Investigators will be Interviewed this coming Friday!!!
Please help us Pray for them! :)
One of our New Investigator, Brother Mark O., seems to Love The Church. We've been teaching him for 2 Weeks now, He attends Church 3 times now, and He also attends Institute. He's really really Progressing! He stopped drinking Coffee when We taught him The Word Of Wisdom. For Sure He will get baptized this September.
Also, We have this Investigator, Marites M.,We've been teaching her for like 5 Weeks now. She attends Church Every Sunday, But She's really struggling in living the Word Of Wisdom. She Loves Coffee so much! But Last Friday, We emphasized the Importance of living The Word Of Wisdom, She committed to Live it, and Yesterday, at The Church, A Ward Missionary asked her if she stopped drinking Coffee. Marites said Yes!!! That was a Big Progress for her. She is really showing her Faith and Desire to Follow The Savior. 
And, Sister Jaycee T. Passed The Interview last Friday!!!
Hurrah! The Long Wait Is Over... She's been waiting for her Baptism Date.
And Now, It is happening! She will be Baptized this coming 29th of August.
I am so Happy for her! She has a Strong Testimony of The Gospel.
She is willing to submit everything, just to follow The Commandments of God.
She is Super Obedient and has the Attributes of Christ. I know for a surety that She will remain Strong in the Church. She attends Seminary, and Loves being at the Church. I am excited for her Baptism. All Of Our Investigators are experiencing Real Conversion. And I do testify that They are Converted in The Gospel Of Jesus Christ now.
I am Praying and Hoping that I don't get transferred...
Speaking Of Transfers. Yes! You're Right! On August 26,
It is Transfer Announcements Again!!!
This Past Days I've been Praying and asking for a sign If I will get transferred or Not.
And The Signs so Far are not really Clear. But Yesterday, I think I received an answer. during the Sacrament Meeting I prayed and asked God for A Sign...
After saying that Prayer, The first thing I saw when I opened my Eyes was The EXIT sign at the top of the Door. I think that EXIT sign means Yes...
Some of the Members gave me letters and started saying Goodbye...
It makes me Sad!!! My Heart doesn't wanna leave Lupao yet.
I Love This Area so much! This Area changed me so much!
And I really Love My Companion, Last Friday, In our Companionship Inventory
We shared The Christlike Attributes that We have. The Attributes that both of us have is Charity and Service. We Love and Serve each other Every Day. And Maybe that is the reason why, We really get along since the beginning of our Time together. I still want to spend more time with this Missionary, I am Learning a lot from him. He Never Gives Up, He is always Positive, and Never gets Mad. I Love his Personality and Sense of Humor so much. My Conversion and Testimony keeps on Increasing.
But, No Matter What Happens, I will always put my Trust in The Lord.
He Knows what to do. And Everything happens for a Reason.
That's all for Today.

A Week Of Awesomeness!

Hello Everyone,
Sorry if my Email is kind of late today, We had a Zone Activity, We went to the Pantabangan Lake. It was really Fun!
I can't believe that Me and Elder Naylor has been together for almost 5 Weeks now. Next Week will be Transfers again. But I dont wanna be Transferred yet.
I wanna be with Elder Naylor for One, Two, or Three Transfers more. I still want to stay in Lupao. And I really really want to Witness some of our Investigators Baptism. But It depends, The Lord knows what to do, No matter what happens, I know that Everything happens for a reason.
Anyways, We are still focusing on our Investigators with Baptism Dates,
Actually, One of our Investigator will be interviewed this Coming Friday and She will be Our 5th Baptism for The month of August, Her Baptism Date is on the 29th.
She is one of The Solid Investigators that wr have here, She attends the Seminary and We have seen her Change because of The Gospel. I can say that She is Ready!
She's really really excited for her Baptism.
We Are also focusing the Siblings of our Recent Converts. They are all Solid, Names are; Divine(James's younger sister), Michelle, and Sheila(Leomark's younger Sisters).
They are all engaged in The Church. They attend Activities, Seminary and Institute.
They're all Amazing! I Love teaching them so much! We talked to their Parents and asked about them, The Mother of Divine and James made me teary eyed, She told us that She's been wishing for someone to change them, She added, I am Thankful to The Lord that He sends you here. You are my answers to my prayer. When she said that My Heart started to Burn. That's one of the Heart Melting Line that I've ever heard in my Entire Existence.
We Asked her if we could Teach her as well, And she said Yes!!!
It will be a great opportunity for us to teach her.
We will be focusing on her and their entire Family this Week.
Also, Yesterday, Leomark and James received the Aaronic Priesthood.
It was one of the Best Moment seeing those 2 ordained as sustained by the Members to be worthy of receiving the Power of God...
The members here are just Super Amazing! They're The Best!
They really are doing Great in helping our Recent Converts!
The Ward is now implementing The Home Teaching Program, And for sure it will help a lot...
Last Thursday we had a Zone Conference, It was really really a Wonderful Conference, I Learned a Lot, Reminded me of My Calling as a Servant Of The Lord, and helped me understand the Importance of The Holy Ghost.
Now, I would like to share something about My Companion,....
Yes! I am so Lucky, having Elder Naylor, I am a one Lucky Person! The Lord really knows Our Needs. :)
Elder Naylor for me, is like a Diamond in The Sky! You need to work hard, to get him. And sometimes I think I really need to be qualified as his Companion. We are in the Same Page, And I am really enjoying my time with him.
We will be expecting Great Things to come this Week.
That's all for today,
