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."

May 16, 2016 - Manggahan Festival - Week 81

Another great week in Guimaras!!

The highlight of this week was on Saturday, we had an awesome branch service project and activity. It was a whole day event. In the morning at 6am we cleaned the church. Then after that at around 11am us four missionaries gave a teachers training on how to be more effective and prepared teachers. Then at around 3pm we just had a huge activity were we ate and played games and just enjoyed each others company. We had the Sararana family show up. They are new investigators. 

Then we went back to them on Sunday with some members and put them on date for baptism on June 18. They are so excited to go to the temple someday and be sealed as a family. 

Then today for Pday we had about 60 missionaries come over to Guimaras for Manggahan Festival. It is a festival all centered around mangoes. So we had a mango eating contest with all the missionaries. I came in second place to one of the AP's Elder Tracy. I stopped after eating 5 kilos of mangoes. It was awesome because all the mangoes here are soooo good!! 

We look forward to this upcoming week. We have plans to put more families on date for baptism.

I love and miss you all and have an awesome week!! :)
