ELDERS ALLEN ( MY COMPANION), ELDER LINES AND I FORGOT THE OTHER PINOY ELDER WERE ON THE SAME APARTMENT IN TALAVERA, NUEVA ECIJA DUE TO AN EARTHQUAKE THAT STRUCK MOST PARTS OF CABANATUAN ZONE, NOW A MISSION ALREADY. FAVORITE FOODS BECAUSE THOSE ARE EASILY AVAILABLE THEN, BUT WE WERE VERY HAPPY AND WITHOUT COMPLAINT. (Rayod)

What was a funny experience?

  • Leading a hymn in a congregation…hymn ended and I was still beating… (Rosalinda)
  • WHEN WE USED TO PLAY A, ( SPAM BUGS ) GAME WHILE RIDING A JEEPNEY. YOU HAVE TO TOUCH YOUR COMPANION EVERY TIME YOU SEE AN OLD ” BUG TYPE CAR”. THAT’S FUNNY BECAUSE THE LAST ONE WHO SEES IT WILL BE CAUGHT UNAWARE. THIS IS ONE WAY OF TAKING AWAY OUR STRESS AND FORGETTING NEGATIVE THINGS. (Rayod)

What was a crazy experience?

  • Binato kami ng companion ko at muntik kaming sinaksak ng balisong at hinabol ng lasing pinagtripan kami. (Reynaldo)
  • WHEN WE WERE ASSIGNED IN RIZAL, NUEVA ECIJA AREA. AS A DISTRICT LEADER, THOSE ELDERS IN THE BONGABON AREA INVITED AS TO INTERVIEW THEIR CANDIDATES FOR BAPTISM, THE CRAZY AND DANGEROUS EXPERIENCE WAS TO RIDE ON TOP OF A JEEPNEY WITH FULL LOADS WHICH WILL CROSS A RIVER. WE USED TO SEE SOME SOLDIERS ON OUR WAY DUE TO NPA INFESTED AREA. (Rayod)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Teaching a family. (Reynaldo)
  • During my mission first area the people thought we were faith healers…and we grabbed the chance to share the gospel with them… (Rosalinda)
  • IT WAS A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE WHEN MY COMPANION IN RIZAL, NUEVA ECIJA INVITED SOME INVESTIGATORS WITH A NUMBER OF MORE OR LESS FIFTY SINGLE ADULT INVESTIGATORS (A FULL-LOADED JEEPNEY ) OF WHOM SOME WERE HANGING OUTSIDE THE JEEP. THAT BARANGAY PART OF RIZAL AREA WERE ONLY A PASS WAY BY PREVIOUS ELDERS BEFORE US. IT WAS THEN WHEN OUR MOUNTAIN BIKES HAD FLAT TIRES AND WE WALKED AND IT SO HAPPENED THAT SOME CURIOUS KIDS MADE SOME KIND OF HELPING HAND AS IT IS IS NORMAL WITH BARANGAY PEOPLE. WE GAVE THEM BOOK OF MORMONS AND TOLD THEM TO SET APPOINTMENTS WITH THEIR PARENTS. NEXT TIME WE WENT BACK, ALL THE NEIGHBORHOOD WERE INTERESTED TO HEAR THE DISCUSSIONS. WE BROKE RECORDS IN BOOK OF MORMON PLACEMENTS, NORMAL NUMBERS OF DISCUSSIONS IN A MONTH WITH ONLY OUR NUMBER WEEKLY DISCUSSION NUMBERS, MOST NUMBERS OF CANDIDATES OF BAPTISM, AND MOST NUMBER OF BAPTISMS. WE WERE THE TOP BAPTIZERS FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE MONTHS. IMAGINE TAKING ONE FULLY-LOADED JEEPNEY OF INVESTIGATORS IN A BRANCH, WHICH THE BRANCH PRESIDENT AND OTHER LEADERS HAD TO ASSIGN THE SUNDAY SCHOOL ROOMS, THE LARGEST AMONG THE CLASSROOMS WAS FOR OUR INVESTIGATORS. (Rayod)
