Working in the fields

Friday, December 10, 2004

We had exchanges today and I worked all afternoon with Elder Boucher. It was okay I guess. This morning we went and worked in Bro Gregorio’s bukid. We were working on stacking up the mud on the divisions between terraces. It was fun and I got to have a good talk with Bro Gregorio. We also got to talk to his boss a little bit about the church. After lunch, Elder Boucher and I went up and did some finding in Niyayos. We had a lot of good talks. I liked it because I was able to actually do some of the talking. I’m actually seeing that I’ve really been blessed with the language. I was at or above the level that Elder Boucher was. I’ve just been intimidated by how very good Elder Cox is at the language.

We also had Elder Fa’oa interview the Vilorias today. It went well except that they had a problem and will have to talk to Pres. Beck to get the baptism approved. They’ll still pass but they are understandably feeling a little bit down right now. They’re still a great family and we’re still hoping to have their marriage on Tuesday and the baptism on Saturday.
