So this has been our first week in the field and it's awesome! The people here are so nice and everybody helps each other. It's a Filipino habit to, when walking between two people talking, duck down. Everybody does it here, even the "cool" guys walking down the street.
We having been teaching a few lessons everyday, and I'm starting to get used to hearing Tagalog, and our areas and such. It's way cool. I'm so happy to be here, even though i usually have no idea what's going on. This one family we are teaching, are so nice, and they are accepting the Gospel. We last taught them about the Word of Wisdom, and the husband, who usually drinks and smokes, committed to live it! We will see next time, but he seemed to understand why why don't intake of those substances, so it can happen. miracles are possible.
What I'm learning is that people need the Gospel, of course, but they need to understand why it is important for them, and how it can help them. Don't be afraid to Open your Mouth. people somehow understand me whenever I speak, and it's in a different language. This church is true, and it can bless the lives of all God's children, if we let it.
