Happy New Year!!! (In Advance) Coming Baptisms

Hello Everyone?

How's Christmas???
First, I would like to shout Thank You to those who sent me Christmas Presents, Letters, & Packages!!!
You are all AWESOME! I Love You All!
Well, Our Christmas was Wonderful!!!
We moved to our New Apartment last Tuesday, it was Fun!
We love our new house!!! 2 Air conditioned Rooms, 1 Big Bathroom, It's a Nice Apartment for the 4 of us.
Wednesday, was a normal Day, & because of the Christmas Season, We got punted a lot... Everyone is Super Busy preparing for Christmas...
Thursday, It is our Christmas Conference (for missionaries only), & Christmas Eve!!! Oh, How I Love Thursday! Our Conference started @ 9 am & it ended around 4 pm.
I Loved the Conference, We listened to our Wonderful mission leaders inspiring Talks, Ate Delicious Foods, Played Games, Exchanging Gifts (Companionship), Watched a Cartoon Christmas Movie (forgot the title), & Sang songs as Zone Choirs (I am in the Paniqui Zone, The song that was assigned for us to sing was Mary Did You Know)...
To be way honest, I miss home, etc. But i will also definitely miss How Missionaries Celebrates Christmas, Why? This is my last one, because next year I'll be home... 😢... 
Anyways, after the Conference, Of course time to go home,
We arrived at our Apartment at 5:35, So We did not go out for work anymore because We have Curfew at 6 pm...
Friday, It is our Weekly Planning Day (Last one with Elder Ball),
And, We Skyped & called our Loved Ones back home. It is still normal day, & because it is Christmas, We got Super punted again...
Sunday, We have 5 Investigators @ the Church, These 5 Wonderful People are preparing for their Baptisms on January & February.
Speaking of Baptisms, Sister Marinica (Our Investigator, She is 17, and is Super Progressing). Her interview was rescheduled, It will be tonight, So, Our Zone Leaders are coming to interview her.
Yesterday, We practiced the Baptism Interview Questions for her @ the Church with some members, The Lesson was Solid!!!
She answered the questions right, But when I asked her this Question;
"Why do want to get Baptized?"
Silence filled the room, and She was speechless, then she said, "I don't want to answer that question!"
After saying those words, She grabbed her handkerchief & started crying.
One of the Sister who joined our lesson was our Young Women President together with our 2 melchizedek priesthood holder, asked her "Why are you crying Sister?''
So, She asked the question that I asked, but our Young Women President said, 
If you don't want to answer the question of Elder, then In One sentence why Do you Want to get baptized?
Our Investigator then said (with wavering voice);
"Because I know that this is all True"
Well, that Experience taught me The Importance & Power of the Holy Ghost, and as well as the members.
Our Young Women President & Our Investigator are very close friends, And maybe she answered her question because Our Investigator knows & trusts her.
I Love the Members, They are our Wonderful & Important boosters for Conversion!
Also, Tomorrow Morning Elder Ball (My Gigantic Companion) will leave me.
He is going back to India (His real mission)
We've been together for 8 Weeks, and It was Awesome!!! I Love Elder Ball a lot, He is A wonderful Missionary... Now, Transfer Day is on the 31st, I do not know if I will stay in our area or transfer, If I transfer our area will get whitewashed, and Temporarily I will be joining 2 people until 31st, Elder Branzuela (Our Zone Leader, His companion will also go back to India, & Elder Teasdale His Companion left 2 weeks ago He also went to Guam, His Real Mission)
So, We will be threesome, Elder Branzuela, Elder Ordejan, & Elder Teasdale!
That is all for today!!!
I Love You with all the energy of my Heart!!!
PS Don't forget the Big 3!!
Advance Happy New Year!!!
Woahhh! 2016 Is Coming!!!!!🎉🎇🎆

Christmas Miracles!

Hello Everyone!!!
I will keep it short today,
Because we are going to a Resort (For our Zone Activity) right after we finish doing our Reports...
I am excited for it... :)
First, Thank You for the Greetings for my 1 Year Mark, Thank You for the Prayers.
You are all Awesome!
Our Week was really Busy...
We had an exchanges last Friday with our Zone Leaders, The Purpose was to Interview one of their Investigators for Baptism.
I worked with Elder Branzuela, I really Love their Area, Why? Because they have Bikes in their area... hahaha. I am really hoping that I get to be assigned in an area with Bikes. I just Love Biking!!!
Bro. Virgillo is the name of their Investigator, He's 16, I Love that Kid...
He answered every question Perfectly and Shared a Heart Melting Testimony.
He said; I am trying to set a Good Example to my Family, I've known that the Church Is True, I want to help and lead them to the Truth, and I want to show them how The Gospel changed my Life and I want to help them Change through the Gospel.
I was touched by his Words, As I Listen to his Testimony, I didn't notice that tears are slowly falling down from my eyes.
I Love to hear Experiences & Testimonies of Nonmembers and Members about the Gospel and The Church, It really Strengthens me.
Also, Last Saturday, Bro. JR got baptized!!! Hurrah!
The Members came, his Nonmember Family was also there to support him.
He was invited to bear his Testimony right after the Ordinance...
As he bear his Testimony, He shared How he found the Gospel, How he knew that its True, How grateful he is for the Members who helped him, and How the Gospel slowly changed him. He was touched by the Spirit that leads him to cry while bearing his Testimony. The Spirit was really strong that time.
I am so much Grateful for the Miracles that are happening in our Area.
This Week, Bro. JR's Mom (A Solid Born Again member), will be interviewed for Baptism. We are praying that She will pass, We know that she's Ready.
We are focusing in this Family right now, and We can tell that step by step the Gospel is starting to change and bless them.
And also, We have a New Branch Mission Leader!!!
We taught him his Responsibilities and at last, For the first time since I got here in Moncada,  We had our Missionary Coordination Meeting happen last Saturday night. This Meeting is really important for us as Missionaries. This is where Members and Missionaries unite and talk about Missionary Work.
I Love having this Meetings.
I also Love My District the Missionaries who are in my District are totally Awesome! I Love them all.
That's all for today,
Have a Great Week, Christmas is coming really fast!!! 11 Days to go!!!
Love: Elder Ordejan

Downhill, One More Baptism!

Hello Everyone!

Yes! Last December 5th, I celebrated my Year Mark.
Well, It made me cry... Realizing that I'm already 1 Year away from home and that I only have 1 more year as a Missionary.
1 Year of Successes, Happiness, and Wonderful Memories...
I am expecting a lot for this 1 more Year.
Here is what I learned and some of the facts I learned from my 1st Year:
*Filipinos are attracted in Americans
*Children Loves Missionaries(They Love to ask for a high 5)
*Missionaries gets really Disappointed when they walk 30 mins. for their appointment and suddenly no one's at the house.
*Missionaries Love to Eat Instant Foods (Canned Goods, Noddles, etc.).
*I Learned how to cook Chicken Curry, Adobo, Menudo, Tinola, & Spaghetti.
*Seize Matters! Especially when you have a 6'3 Companion & you're only 5'3,
People will make fun of the small Missionary.
*Missionaries Loves to receive Packages & Letters.
*Missionaries Loves Mondays! (Preparation Day, PDay)
*Missionaries doesn't like Teaching or Sharing about the Gospel on the Spot.
*Missionaries Loves Mothers Day, and Christmas Day. (Skyping Time)
*Missionaries Loves having Baptisms!
*Missionaries are scared of gaining Weight!
*And many many more... haha. I'm running out of time.
Well, about our Week,
We had a Baptism last Saturday, (My Year Mark)
Sister Bianca, and Sister Charmie.
They are one of the Special People in this area.
Despite of their young age,
They are both engage in the Church, They both attend every Activities, and Programs of the Church. They showed a BIG Desire to follow the Savior.
I am Grateful that They are now Members Jesus Christ's Church.
Members here are Super Awesome! I Love them all!
They Support and Love our Investigators and Recent Converts.
Yesterday our Branch President got released because he's leaving.
He is going to Canada...
I am excited for our New Branch President, It will be announced next Sunday.
Speaking of next Sunday... We have Stake Conference next Sunday!
Weird because we are part of the Moncada 2nd Choir. hahaha.
I Love Music, But I don't like Singing.
Also, another Great News!
The Uncle of Sister Bianca, Brother JR passed the Interview last Friday!!!
He will be baptize on the 12th of December!!!
This Man taught me The Beauty and Power of Repentance.
He wanted to Change and He desires to be a better person.
I Love Brother JR, He is a Humble Giant!
We are all excited for his Baptism.
We are also focusing in his Mom, Sister Myrna (She is a Solid Born Again Member)
We've been teaching her for a while, at first She was Hard, and does not keep our Commitments. But The Gospel changed everything, She was softened and understood the importance of our Commitments and She even Showed up for Sister Bianca's Baptism. Sister Bianca is her Granddaughter.
What's more Intense? Is, They went to the Temple Trip last Tuesday!!!
Sister Myrna, Her 2 Sons (JR, Jerwin and his wife, and Bianca and Mark)
They shared us their Wonderful Experience in the Temple.
They stated that they are excited to be Members and Perform Ordinances in The Lord's House.
We are excited for the results of our Labors in this Family.
God Lives. He knows each one of His Children...
That's all for today...
I Love You All!
