We had our zone development meetings today in San Jose. It was really good; Elder Fa’oa and Elder Boucher taught about anchoring our testimonies and ourselves on Jesus and then also how to help our investigators anchor themselves. It was a good lesson. I’m really learning a lot out here about the reality of Jesus Christ and His atonement and the power that it has. My testimony is becoming more and more my own.

I’ve had a cold for the last few days and so I’ve been having kind of a hard time. After our meetings in San Jose, we came back to Calintaan with the Rizal Elders. The four of us: myself, Elder Cox, Elder Baylon and Elder McCauley went caroling in Dagupan. We got to visit a lot of people and it was fun. We also taught a lesson to the Vilorias about spreading and sharing the gospel. Hopefully they’ll be able to give us a strong referral. We also gave them the album of the pictures from their baptism and the marriage. We also gave Pulidos a box of “chips ahoy” that we bought and I gave their kids a crazy squishy ball and a koosh ball that Grandpa sent me. They enjoyed them even if it was a somewhat strange gift.
