Transfer week and One Day Mission

Magandang Umuga po Family!
This week has been amazing and so filled with fun experiences. I'm actually sorry that most of my emails are just spiritual things that I have learned and felt, haha sometimes the things that would be a crazy experience for you at home is just everyday missionary life here in the philippines! I will try to write about it all :)
Transfer week is here and I am STILL in Pasig with Sister Soriano as my companion again. I know this is probably my last cycle here in Pasig so I've got to make it count! I have seen the blessings of having a six month+ area and I'm grateful to stay in such a wonderful ward with such wonderful investigators. :) 
I all began last Monday, we were in a taxi on the way to the mission home for "celestial p-day" (it's like a kind of rewarded p day with games and food for getting a perfect score on apartment checks haha). The taxi driver told us a story about how a few weeks ago he had gotten stabbed by some guy in a public place (not anywhere near our area don't worry haha) and how no one had stopped to help him. As we introduced the gospel to him he said he was happy to hear that the world still has some good in it haha :) 
We are teaching an older couple, Nanay and Tatay Concepcion. They are soo nice! Nanay came to church with us last Sunday and Tatay promised to come with her the following week. Whenever we share with them Tatay usually teaches us more than we teach him haha, he is soo nice. We are praying that they will come to church together this week, they are planning on going out to the provinces next month for like 3 months so we are hoping they will be able to be baptized before that happens. If not it's up to the timing of Heavenly Father :) 
One day this week we decided to go tracting at a place called Bliss Compound. We don't go door-knocking very often, because it's just way easier to start conversations to the millions of people walking around the streets of metro manila haha. But we both felt prompted to follow the example of the missionaries in President Uchtdorfs talk and knock until the "fourth floor last door". 90 percent of the people who answered were 60+ year old nanays who said "sorry we're catholic" and shut the door on us. We even met one tatay who told us all the "facts" he read about the mormons on the internet haha, he tried to convince sister Soriano to go back to being Catholic even after she told her she had always been a Mormon haha. It was still good because we did get two return appointments and even met one part member brother. Who knows? Heavenly Father has a plan for these people. :)
Anyway, I super love being a missionary. Life is still good here even though it's blazing hot and I'm still stuck in the polluted busy city haha :) But really, I love this place and I don't ever want to leave. I love the Filipino people, I love sharing with them the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I love my mission. 
Mahal ko kayo!
