WEEK 42 "Investigator Update"

Friends and family,

The investigators are doing great! Myself and Elder Reed have found a lot of success tracting this week. It has both helped our work and Elder Reed's Tagalog. The work is great and I can testify it's because of your prayers. How truly grateful I am for them.

As I said a couple weeks ago we are teaching a lot of kids to prepare families to be sealed in the temple. With the success I spoke of earlier we are able to add other families into that pool. The members have also been helpful with their referrals. We have been teaching a members parents for a little while now have been able to set a date with them for baptism. Mark is engaged and is moving to Australia. He is getting married it the temple and it is something that his parents want also and that is why they committed to a date so easily. Please pray for the Mulawin family.

Mark, one of the kids we are teaching is also working toward a date. When we started teaching him it was so easy because he has been going to primary so he already knows everything about are lessons. We came back a couple days later and at the start he ask when he could be baptized and be with his family forever. He is so excited and is counting down the days literally. Please pray for him.

Girly is a sister that is a friend of a recent convert. He is having a pretty hard time right now and loves the peace she feels when we are in her home. She is diligent in her reading and her husband is now starting to become an active participant in the lessons. He has asked so amazing questions that he says have helped him fell more and more that the Mormon is for him in his words. She is always having new people come to her house to sit and feel of the peace that the message of the restored gospel brings. Everyone one of them had said how powerful it is and how much they want to learn more. There about 9 of them and I cant express all that I want to about them. Email doesn't show how excited I am for them.

Ito pong work ni Hasukristo at ito pong ebanghelyo niya. Buhay po siya. Lahat tayo ay mga anak ng Diyos. May buhay na propeta dito sa mundo ngayon si Thomas S. Monson. Tumatungap po siyang paghahayag para sang buong simbahan, at kung susundin tayo ang mga silita niya, babalik tayo sa kahariyang ni Ama sa Langit. Mahal ko kayong lahat.

Elder O'Neil
