Friends and family,I have now left my little island of Mindoro and am now in a San Juan, Batangas. I'm so sad to leave my area in Pinamalayan and all the members and my amazing investigators there. My companion, Elder Fernandez was also transferred as well, but the new missionaries in the area are great I know they will take care of things, that's a real blessing and what makes it easier to leave. There's a great quote that says "change brings forth growth but I'm not sure who said it. I can testify that its true. I saw it leaving my first area and i've already seem myself grow in just the short couple days I've been in this area.
