Dear Family and Friends,
We had another great week here in Socorro. Our work is progressing well and the members' involvement in the work is starting to grow. This week we had the great opportunity to work the whole day with our two recent converts. It was the first time in a while that we have been able to have a member present in the lessons. All the members in our group are always so busy with work, they never have any time to work with us. They both have really strong testimonies of the Book of Mormon and prayer. We also found a new investigator while we were tracting and she's awesome. She seemed really interested when we talked to her outside of her house. We gave her a Restoration pamphlet and set off down the trail that we were walking on. When we came back about 30 minutes later, she came running out and said that she had finished the pamphlet, she had a lot of questions, she wanted to see a Book of Mormon, and she wanted to come to church. My companion and I were absolutely stunned. It really helped me to know that there are people prepared to receive our message. All we have to do is open our mouths.
I would encourage all of you, especially the young men, to work with the missionaries in your ward. It will really help them, but I know that it will also help you build your faith. That's something that I wished I had done before my mission.
Everything else is going great, and we have our interviews with President this weekend which means a lot of jeepneys and one really long boat ride. We really are out in our own little world.
Thanks for all of your support! I appreciate everything! Things are going great here in the Philippines!
