Dear Family and Friends,
It has rained every day this week. The rain has been a steady rainfall with no wind or thunder, just a good soaking rain. The rain clears out the pollution from the sky but sometimes you just wish you could be dry.
We have had a couple of wonderful experiences over the past 2 days. Friday afternoon we just got back into the office after making the ‘mail run’ and the assistant’s called to see if we could be at their discussion that evening. They needed a member to be with them since they were teaching a single sister. We were excited for the opportunity. When we arrived at the church, the missionaries weren’t there yet (wonderful traffic day) so we sat and talked with their investigator. She is delightful. She is Chinese! She speaks English and is working here in Manila for a mining company. It was so nice to talk with her and learn about her family. When the Elders came they taught her about tithing and they asked if we could explain some things about tithing and to bear our testimonies. We loved it. We love the office and have learned some wonderful things here but I miss teaching the people. What a blessing it was for us to be a part of her gospel experience. She will be baptized on Saturday December 10th and was very excited when we asked if we could come to her baptism.
Well, this week has the makings of a very busy week. We hope that you are all doing well. Christmas is almost upon us. I’m sure that you are all ready for the holidays. We hope that you are enjoying good health and that you are happy. We love you all. We miss you very much, especially at this time of year. Thank you again for your prayers and your love. We love you. Remember to BE good, DO good, and BE men and women of Christ. And always remember to say your prayers.
Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, Janene and Grant
