This week, I got to experience a pretty strong storm that passed though the Bicol region. It was quite the destructive storm, but all of the members, investigators, and missionaries here seem to be safe. We have had the opportunity to be of service to a few of the members here so far, which has been really great, but we don't have any power for several weeks, which makes things a little tough, especially because it means we have a 5:30pm curfew until there is power again. It puts a pretty big damper on the work. No pun intended.
Other than that, we had an investigator who we've been working with for a long time finally come to church and a lot of less active members. It was neat that they came in spite of the storm. I know that this is Heavenly Father's work and that he loves us and will help us to share the gospel and to do what's right.
