Dear Family and Friends,
Another great week has come and gone in Tanauan City. Almost all of our investigators are progressing well and the days are going faster than ever. We had a great experience teaching one of our investigators. She used to be a big time blues singer at the Shangri la hotel in Manila. Everyone here tells us that it's a really big deal, but I don't really know. We had a great lesson with her and she accepted a baptismal goal date in the first lesson. The spirit was really strong and she even said that she had been waiting for something like this for a long time.
Other than that, the weather has been awesome! I wasn't sure how many more weeks of heat I could take, but this whole week has been cloudy and raining. Apparently there are three areas of low pressure headed towards the Philippines that could potentially become typhoons. The mission is keeping us updated, but for now it just means dark skies and pounding rain.
We also have our mission tour coming up and Elder Ardern from the area seventy will be coming to speak to us. I am really excited. Elder Ardern has a reputation for being very talented at chastising missionaries, so everyone is definitely getting prepared. Other than that things are going well. Our baptisms for this week are up in the air right now because President is the one who will be interviewing them, and his schedule is pretty crazy right now. Hopefully, everything will go as planned.
My companion and I are getting along well and we are both loving the rain! Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement!
