Philippines Cauayan Mission

Philippines Cauayan Mission

Tuesday, November 25, 2014


Another week down in the Philippines! Not too bad of a week this week. Got 23 lessons so another good week that way. Baptisms on the other hand are lacking a little bit but we're doing good with some less actives.
Monday- We had family home evening at a members house. I went there once last cycle. The one with a ton of kids. They have 3 or 4 kids but then all the kids from the houses around always come for family home evening so it makes it a lot of fun! We split into three teams for the game and my team won. You have to really get into the games here because there is always a punishment for the team that loses. Most likely sing in front of everybody and I'm not doing that so I do all I can to win! 
Friday- Went on splits with the zone leaders for the day. Pretty fun experience. I went with Elder Poulter who is from Rigby so we talked a lot about home! Went to new part of their area that they hadn't been to before so it was a lot of finding. Did get a couple lessons in though so that was good! 
Sunday- Church was pretty good. Tatay and Nanay Fernandez made it 3 weeks in a row this week. Another less active family, the Morinas family, came back to church for the first time this week. Funny story...An old man from the furthest part of our area came to church yesterday as well! Like a month ago we were teaching another guy out in the open and he came up and sat in on the conversation. Started to become more of a debate and I was totally lost the whole time with the language. On Saturday we saw him on the road so we just said hello and invited him to church. Couldn't believe it but he actually came! Hopefully we can visit him this week and follow up with him! When we went out to work yesterday, Manny Pacquiao  had a fight that day. Thanks to him, work was tough. It's like a holiday here whenever he fights. I thought that was pretty funny though!
Hope all is well back home! Love you all!
Love Elder Haacke
