This week we also went to lots of houses and are trying really hard to find families to teach!! We have some return appointments so we will see how that goes.
This week we started teaching Amy. She has 3 kids and her husband is in the Southern Philippines for work. She was a referral from a less active in the ward, we went to visit her then asked if she had any friends who wanted to hear our message and she sure did. So we have started to teach Amy. She has a really really hard life, and after our lesson she told us that she wants us to come everyday. She told us when we leave, even though she doesn't know if she can find enough food for their family, she can't stop smiling, her problems no longer seem like problems, she is more positive and optimistic, then she started crying and saying that the feeling she gets in her heart when we come is what she wants to feel everyday of her life. I know what she was feeling was the Holy Ghost, not only because she perfectly described some of the fruits of the spirit, but because I feel the spirit in those lessons as well.

This week has been lots of looking for people to teach. Life is good here. Things just keep going. We have lots and lots of part members in the ward. So still trying to find everyone.
This week we ran into a couple foreigners who we talked to. It's really fun to talk to the foreigners because they are all here for different reasons! This French guy was just walking down the street with us so talked to him about the gospel, and he is here for a coral reef research for his school, they are usually really nice and curious about us. We usually always direct them to LDS.org so they can hop on when they get back to the hotel or whatever. This city is nuts. Lots of crazy things all the time. Lots of cats, less dogs than Coron but lots of cats here.
