I am Elder Ilagan, a
missionary working for the mission office. I got a text message from Elder Cousin telling me
that he couldn't go online because he's taking care of his sick companion at
their apartment right now. He wants you to know that he is fine and that you
will get an e-mail from him soon. Take care & God bless! :)
Tuesday: So I'm emailing on Tuesday. Hopefully you
got Elder Ilagan's email yesterday. Elder Dionisio was sick yesterday and
we had a class 4 typhoon here. I don't know if you heard about that.
We were alladvised to stay inside
yesterday until mid-afternoon. In my area it was just rain and some heavy
wind but in some of the other are apartments were flooded. I don't think
anyone was hurt though. It came straight through our mission. This week has been really
good here. We had 25
lessons which is the most I have had in oneweek. I feel like my Tagalog has really picked up this week.
Evenif I don't understand every
word people use and can typicallyunderstand
what they are saying. It’s fantastic; I never thought Iwould get to this point.
On Sunday we had the opportunity to go on splits
with some of thesingle adults and youth.
It was really good. We were able to teach abunch of lessons and get the branch involved.
Later that night, we stopped at the branch president’s
house and wereplanning to share but it
ended up turning into a devotional/testimonymeeting with the SA's and Youth. It was amazing. The spirit
was sostrong. A few of the SA's
really needed something like this in theirlife
so our goal is to organize something like it every few weeks.
So as missionaries we hear from the members
about all the othermissionaries that
have been assigned in this area. One missionarythat everyone seems to remember is from Cedar City.
His name is IsaacBrown. I
was wondering if you or any of the kids down in Cedar knowwho he is.
We have a busy week ahead so it'll be p-day
again before we know it.I will try to
send some pictures then.
So that is pretty much what is going on with us.
I hope you all havea wonderful
week. I love you all so much.
