1 Nephi 3:7

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

Happy New Year! January 4, 2015

This week was pretty eventful! Starting with New Years Eve. We had a bunch of appointments set us but we got punted (rejected) all day. So at 4:00 we went back to our apartment. Luckily the zone leaders invited us over again to go to dinner and then to stay the night at their home. At 5:00 we went to dinner with the zone leaders at a members home. It was so good! While we were there we had a brown out (power outage) so we played a few games. Then the zone leaders got another call from another member that wanted to feed us. So we kindly excepted even though we were super full! So we got to the other members home and they had so much food! So we were all stuffed that night! Then we went back to the zone leaders home and Elder Cabatuando and I stayed up till midnight. We went out on the balcony and watched the fireworks. The fireworks here are unreal! Like I can't explain. The whole sky is lit up! There are fireworks all around you. And they went on for a solid hour of just non stop Booming!! It was deafening loud! Then At 1:00 we went to sleep it was a great New Years. 

The rest of the week was pretty normal after that. We found two new investigators. There names are Joy and Manuel. Joy is a referral from another one of our investigators. They are both pretty solid investigators. They are very curious about the church. Then yesterday we had some random guy come visit our ward he got up and said his testimony and right there he said he wanted to be baptized! So we are going to teach him the lessons and see how it goes. He is an answer to our prayers! 

Oh yeah and I can't forget. This we was the first time I tried Balut!! Haha it actually wasn't that bad. I will definitely be having it again soon! :)  

Well that's all for this week so I hope you all had a great New years! Love and miss you all. Have a great week! :)

Local public "restroom"...Wow, look at that rain! :)

For anyone concerned....Jake said that "Yes! that pig is definitely alive!" I guess that is why he's keeping his distance.
