We had a good typhoon come through this week. But luckily we could still travel back to Puerto. It just rained . . . a lot.
I love seeing all the faithful saints across Palawan... The branch up there is doing really well now. It was just recently a group but is making great progress. People up there have had their religion for generations so it's hard for our church to really take root. We are getting there, slowly but surely. We met an old grandma while
we were there who just told us I know your church is true but I plan on going into the next life Catholic... It's a very religious place up there and it's also got lots of rice farmers.
I also got to work in the mainland this week. In Baclaran. That place is the like the city in Hercules, I think it was called the city of thieves? That's what it reminded me of. We were swimming through people going through the market, everyone is yelling and trying to sell you things. We had a great lesson later that night to a boarder from the province. Heavenly Father is always preparing people, it's rarely ever an accident to run into somebody. It was a very powerful lesson, I don't think he was expecting it to be so powerful but the message really hit him hard and he is very thankful for the Book for Mormon.
The work in our area is going all right... We have lots of part members in our area and lots of less actives. We are working really hard to get people motivated to become active so that they can be sealed to their families.
This was from our exchanges from up in Tatay... This is a newly formed branch ... It's really... Jungle there haha. It was an incredible time up there. We almost didn't come back yesterday due to the typhoon but we still made the 5 hour journey back over the mountains, but President was watching the weather for us and said we could go for it. It rained really hard but we made it back safely. The picture of the house looking thing is their chapel. The work is on fire up there!
