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 2, 2016 - After an Intense Battle with the Adversary... - Week 79

Hey yall! So it was another amazing week in Guimaras. This week was all about just preparing our investigators for baptism. And its a lot easier said then done. We had their baptismal interviews on Wednesday. At that point we had a few that had a couple small concerns. But Elder Cinco said he would just interview them or talk to them anyways to help resolve some of the concerns. And that is exactly what happened. Through the spirit we were able to work out the concerns and they were ready to go. On Friday night we were faced with another concern about the baptismal clothes because there simply weren't enough. It has been awhile since there have been baptisms in this area and there have never been this many so we were freakin out trying to figure out where we could get 9 sets of baptismal clothes. 

Long story short we got it figured out. Next morning everything was smooth rolling until we got to the church and found out there was NO WATER! 

We had a huge turn out for the baptism so we were so lost on what to do. 

But because we are on an island we are very blessed. So we headed to the beach. We all got on motorcycles and in the back of a truck all in our white clothes. It was a site to see. Haha. 

So we arrived at the beach and everything was awesome from there on. We had a massive turn out from the members and even the APs came to show their support. 

Then yesterday we spent like the whole sacrament meeting confirming the people that were baptized. I couldn't be more happy and excited to tell you some of the newest members of the church are the Singson Family, Fernandez Family, and Sister Tajanlangit. Thank you for all the prayers. It wasn't easy but it was so worth it! We have family's that are preparing right now for the first or second week in June. Well that's it for this week! Love ya'll and have an awesome week!
