We received another referral from the same family that referred BlesmeLord. Sister Janine. actually, I tried to teach her 5 months ago with Elder Anota, but it was COMPLETELY different this time!
She will be marrying the relief society president's son on October 24. (good day) and she came to church!
we taught a really really powerful lesson about covenants, and how baptism leads to celestial sealing! we discussed how the church will help her develop a personal relationship with her Savior.
we invited her to be baptized the week after the wedding, but that is a national holiday "araw ng mga patay" or "all saints' day." which is like our memorial day. In my experience this is the most celebrated holiday right up there with Easter, and Christmas.
she asked if she could be baptized the week after that. of course we said okay.
We keep having brown outs, everyday, for hours at a time! It's also been a heat wave.
here is an unsolicited math equation: heat - electric fans = ,:P (that's a sweating emoticon)
have a great week everyone!
