Last dinner appointment at the Maico's with Elder Christie
Elder Gagnon and his new companion, Elder Villa at the airport
It has been quite a week here in STA Monica. Really exciting! We have a ton of referrals to contact and stuff. It has been great though. So again, I have a new companion. His name his Elder Villa and I am his Tatay. He is brand new right out of the MTC. He is from Nueva Ecija which is in the Angeles mission. He is super cool and just great! He has had no trouble at all teaching and everything. It's great! Also his birthday was yesterday! Where he is from, they speak Tagalog which is really kool so he hasn't had to adjust to that at all. We are having a blast together. The only thing that has changed is that instead of 1 hour of companionship study, it's 2 now. So it's pretty hard. Haha. But I love everything about it. I'm still a District Leader too so it's going to be really fun training and being a District Leader.
Things are going great in STA Monica, well sort of. We have been contacting a lot of less actives and because Elder Villa only got here on Friday we didn't get a whole lot of work done. We had a broadcast and the Zone leaders had a baptism so we went to that. So Elder Villa and I haven't had a full day of work yet. We will on Wednesday though. :D
Tatay Carleto is doing great. He wants to get baptized so bad. He was our first lesson to an investigator as a companionship and we were just reviewing the baptismal questions. There were some issues though that have to be dealt with, so he may have to wait a few months to be baptized. So that is too bad. I know he will be a very strong member when he does get baptized. President Maico said that he will be a very strong leader and maybe even the group leader out in Irawan. We will just have to wait and see. Sister Pass, his wife, will probably get baptized first. That was a pretty crazy lesson for Elder Villa though.
Sister Nancy is also going to be getting a calling soon! President asked me what I thought and I told him that is exactly what we want for her. I think she might becoming a councillor or teacher in Primary. We will find out soon I guess. :)
Brother Jeffrey is also doing great. He really wants to get baptized and he will on the 11th of February. We are also really excited for him. He loves the Book of Mormon!
Anyways I guess that's about it for this week. Sorry if it's a bit short but I need to go now. Haha. I love you guys so much! It was great to see pics of you! Thank you so much for everything!
