People Don't Know How to Give Directions Here - 9/11/2016

Sorry I'm so bad at sending emails with lots of details... There's just never really enough time to email.

So let's start with... BAPTISM this coming Saturday. Lauro Gabriel passed his baptismal interview so we're excited to see him enter the waters of baptism this Saturday.

Also last week we had Zone Conference, and it was nice to see all the familiar faces and receive guidance from fellow missionaries and President and Sister Ostler.
So story... After Zone Conference, we were trying to get a taxi, but none of them wanted to take us to our apartment because it's "too far away" so we were like "FINE DON'T TAKE OUR MONEY" so we then tried to get a jeepney to take us to the train station, but all the ones that passed us by were full, so we ended up searching for transportation for like an hour and a half. Well, we finally got a jeepney to take us to the station, and we took a train to "Baclaran", but then we got lost after that... Haha so we ended up wandering around and walked down this really long road in search of another jeepney to take us to our apartment, but there were literally none. And all the taxis still didn't want our money. All in all, it took us like 3 and a half hours to get to our apartment, when normally it should have taken 1 and a half hours. Needless to say, I'm sure we looked funny as a group of 4 missionaries wandering around as a group, asking people for directions on how to get home.

I think this is about all for now.
So we had these 2 progressing investigators last June/July, and they were almost ready to be baptized, but they moved and we couldn't find out how to contact them or find them, so that was unfortunate. But then last Saturday, we were wandering around by a members house, AND WE FOUND THEM IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD. Then the next Sunday THEY CAME TO CHURCH AGAIN. So that was a miracle. We thought they were long gone, but they happened to be right. Sneaky sneaky.

Well this was my week.
You all have a good week! Mahal ko kayo!
