Well this week has been a tender mercy from the Lord. There has been a lot of success in our area even though our numbers don't show it. Elder Villanueva and I have been able to get 8 new investigators this week! But that came through just two families but I'd rather have families than anything else! We are currently helping two of the investigators get legally married because they both were previously married but have been separated for 15 plus years. They had 4 kids together so that brought up a few issues but President Reeder is helping us through the process. This last week the Tatay and two of his kids came to church and they loved it!! The Bunso (youngest) is 8 and he really enjoyed being around kids his age in primary. The Primary President here (Sister Dela Cruz) reminds me a lot about mom. She's always working hard and is always concerned for the kids. Honestly I never thought I would be helping people get married.. but well here I am. It's a really really weird thought to be thinking that next month is going to be my 6 month mark! This time has gone by in the blink of an eye. Transfer day for us is on New Years Eve so I really think that my time here in the Naga First Ward is about to come to and end. I have really truly grown to love the members here; the support and encouragement that they have given me is beyond belief. I'm starting to pick up Tagalog a little bit faster now. I can understand it pretty well but it's still difficult to speak because there are so many different conjugations and it's hard to decide which one I need to use. May God be with you till we meet again.
