Monday and Tuesday: We had an MLC (Mission Leadership Conference) in Iloilo. This one was a little different then the ones Ive been to in the past. We did it in Presidents home which was awesome. After the first night we had a FHE with President and his family. We made homemade ice cream and had so much pizza. I was fun just getting to really know president and his family better as well as the other missionaries. On Tuesday after MLC we came home and went to one of our investigators to do her baptismal interview.
Wednesday-Friday: Those were just normal working days nothing crazy exciting happened in those days.
Saturday: In the morning we got up and went to rosadels baptism. And as we all know all baptisms never go as planed. So when we woke up there was tons of rain and wind. Like a little typhoon. But we went to the place where we planned to do the baptism. We were about 15 min late but we were still the first ones there. Little by little the members started to show up and we got things rolling about an hour late. Better late then never. After the baptism we went to the branch activity where the missionaries did a kind of a mini mtc. It was pretty successful. We had a lot of people there. After the training we played some games and ate lots of food. It was a great day.
Sunday: MY BIRTHDAY!!! At church all of my recent converts and members invited us over to eat. So we pretty much spent the whole rest of the day going and visiting members and eating food. It was a great 20 birthday!
This week was all in all a pretty fantastic week! :) Love yous all and take care!
