Laoag 2nd Area (24th Week In The Mission Field)

Kamusta kayong lahat! Time here in mission is really really fast. I feel like every second that pass by is precious. I remember what our Stake President (President Alicando) told me the day he set me apart, He said, "You only got one chance to serve a Full-time mission, so do everything to make every moment count ... don't do something that you will regret in the end." And that is what I'm trying to do now, to make every moment count. To make my missionary experience fruitful and that I'll be able to help a lot of people to come unto Christ. 

I also notice in myself the past few weeks that I really am starting to get into addressing the concerns of our investigators. I try thinking about them every time and trying to discern what they need. We have people who I can see can be baptize but has just some concerns that's why they're not progressing. So last week I really did spend my time and effort trying to help them resolve their concern especially the Less Actives and Recent Converts too. And I find it really effective that if you really invest your time to the people you teach, it will bear its fruits. We went to do some service last week with a Less Active too and now he's really comfortable talking to us ... and guess what, their neighbor who happen to see us helping him now also wants us to help them and more likely become a potential investigators for us. It's really nice how serving other people can soften their hearts and prepare them to receive our message.
