Mission News

(Oct 24 2011) Mission News: Elder Ramos and I have been more focusing on less actives this week. We will probably continue to do so cause Elder Nelson, who is the area 70 here, said that the first presidency wants to see real growth here in the Philippines. Last year we baptized 700 people here in the Philippines Naga mission and 80% of them our active, which is the highest active recent convert percentage in the Philippines. But our sacrament attendance did not increase. So that means that lots of people went inactive too. Elder Nelson said real growth is more active members. So a lot of the missions focus is being switched to less actives. There's a ton! In our ward we have 40 to 50 active members with around 350 members on the ward list. So there's lots of work to do. We still have investigators, we just don't do any tracking.

(Oct 18 2011) Mission News:  Elder Taylor is on his way to his new area and I'm with Elder Betalas right now, one of the zone leaders. He's Filipino. I'm staying in Talisay for another transfer (6 weeks) and I'll be getting my new companion tomorrow. When I had my interview with President 2 weeks ago he said I would probably have a Filipino companion. It'll increase my language skill really fast.
