1. How is the training going?The training this week was superb. We had a great time learning together. We had our "blahhhh" moments when we got sick of studying, but overall we had a successful week studying and practicing teaching the message of The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We both learned a lot. I combined a story/verse I found in my recent study of the Bible in John 7:16-17:"Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will , he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself."
to Moroni's Invitation in Moroni 10:3-5 "
Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."and Joseph Smith's story and it put a previously not progressing investigator to tears. She felt something... :) The winds are changing. We are starting to see little signs of progress in our ward. We have a vision and a goal for this next month. August is going to be a glorious month for Elder Laxamana here in Tuguegarao. July is member-prep month. :) :) :) The Broadcast last night was awesome!
2. Are you Happy?I miss President Mortimer. :) gotta love his catch phrase "are you happy?" yes mom, I am happy. I am rather healthy. I am doing my best and the ward is doing more than their share to make sure that we are kept well fed. :) take a look at the picture of a yellow sheet of paper. That’s my dinner calendar. Show that to your ward members and tell them these members have much less to give than they do... see what results you get for your missionaries. :)

Wow they are really feeding them. :)
I bought a new belt because my old one had separated into 2 layers and looked really shabby. My new belt put a line of black around my polo. : P
I love you all very much! I must go now. I have things to do. :)
