Weekly email 5.26.2014: Kasama natin ang Diyos!

Hey Fam,

The week went good. In some sort of a way it feels like were finally on a pretty good pace in our work trying to get over each of these trials. Were making progress anyway. We have a couple of baptisms lining up. They are actually younger kids though. The one is a twelve year old girl in a huge less active family. But were lucky because they live just down the road from bishop so even though the family doesnt come to church we have the bishops wife pick up our investigator. So she will get interviewed this Saturday and then the week after that BAPTISM. We have other people committed but they arent pulling through with their part.

Its ineresting because the last few months we have really been encouraged by the are presidency of the Philippines through our mission president that we need to single adults. Interestingly enough most converts of the church are between the ages of 18-30. So we have been tracting boarding houses around the colleges here in Batangas. There are actually a few large colleges here. Almost all of them are open to know what message we have. We met two girls and talked to them but werent able to share with them right away but low a behold they showed up to church yesterday and they arent even officially investigators yet. We also taught a lesson at an apartment yesterday with a seventh day adventist, a catholic, and a born again. I actually enjoy teaching people around my age because in a way we kind of have the same perspective.

The more and more I keep learning on my mission I cant help but think its to bad I didnt know this a year ago when I still had so much time. But that just keeps making it more important that I become a “Finisher” as President Monson put it.

Love,
ELder Polatis

This bald baby is actually a girl but has really this hair so they keep shaving it in order to thicken it up. Poor little girl.
