Life is good. We had seven people attend church yesterday which was stressful, but a blessing. Another great week in paradise. Our friend Jordan is amazing. He wants to be baptized so bad, but works on Sundays. Any ways he gave up his salary on Sundays so he can come to church. He also has a word of wisdom problem. I haven't had to try to help anyone work through this so we have just been praying a lot to Heavenly Father. One of the coolest things about being a missionary is giving people promised blessings and then watching Heavenly Father fulfill that blessing as they act in faith.
I know Heavenly Father answers are prayers. He knows us and loves us all individually. I have really seen the scripture 1 Nephi 3:7 be fulfilled in my mission. It is a sacrifice to be obedient to commandments but the price is worth is. As President Nelson says, "Pay the price now, it is worth it." The day will come when we meet God. After all our trials are through and we will say, 'Is that ALL that was asked of me?' Because the blessing far out weighs the sacrifice.
Peace be the journey,

On the way home last night this random man shouted and wanted a picture (we thought it was a picture of Jesus Christ he wanted.) Turns out it was just a picture of me. So we stopped and he took a close up pic of me and my comp. Then we convinced him and this old man sitting next to him that I was from the Philippines and my comp. was from america (they were drunk). He was so surprise I new Bisaya. So then he pointed his index finger and asked "what is this?" I was so confused, so just replied in Bisaya 'Tudlo' (finder), he was amazed. Then proceeded to take off his shoes and then wiggle his toes and asked we "what is this?" (pointing to his foot.) I replied "Tiil." Then he pointed to a cat "what is that?", I replied "Iring". After that he seemed pretty confined that I knew Bisaya. Even thought the whole conversation was in Bisaya. We gave them a little pamphlet, then went on are ways. I just wanted you all to know that I now have a new bff.
