We found the coolest family this week. The Gonzaga family. The wife and daughters were baptized while in their province. The husband has just been just working here. While we were walking down the street the other day the brother called out to us and said he wants us to visit him. We said we will see what we can do :) The wife and the daughters have now moved here to Manila! We have been teaching them and they came to church as a family this week! He accepted a baptismal invite and is very humble. We have a little hard time teaching them, because are still fresh from the province they don't speak or understand too much Tagalog yet. So they usually just pray in their own dialect.
Brother Vicente Ferrer has been doing great and said although his body is still going through difficulties after having quiet smoking that he really doesn't want to smoke any more. It's been a miracle and he really feels that he can do this!
We were in our beds after a long day this week and we were doing a companionship prayer, and our bunk-bed started really shaking. I thought, what in the world, why is Elder Jones up there dancing messing around during our companionship prayer. But then I started looking around and it was actually an earthquake. We saw on phone from the government that there was a 5.4 earthquake in the near by province and we got the aftershock. Where we were it was only a little over 3.
Good week this week. The Lord has really been preparing the hearts of the people.
This is the Gonzaga family. They are really really awesome!!! Plus the Mortimers, a senior couple that used to serve here, very nice as well
