Goodbye Narra

It's hard to say goodbye. We have come to love the people of Narra so much! Sunday night we went to the Magsinos with Elders Julito and Appleby. They are such a good family. Edwin is really working on quitting smoking and is making good progress. They are really looking forward to being baptized in March. We love them! Monday we fed the Elders breakfast; pancakes, french toast, bacon, scrambled eggs, the works! It was good! We then spent the rest of the day doing paper work and other chores in preparation to leave. Monday evening we went to Corpuz's for F.H.E. It was nice and what made it extra special was they invited their nonmember neighbour family to come and they seemed to really enjoy it. They are a really nice family- 4 teenage kids who seem really good. Hopefully they will come along now. The missionaries had taught them some but they really weren't progressing but the seem to have a renewed interest now.Tuesday we packed our bags, went to our last district meeting with the missionaries and taught Jeffrey and Sheila again. Sure love them. Sure hope Jeffrey will commit to be baptized someday soon. Tuesday night the branch held a farewell party for us and Sister Ordanza who is leaving next week on a mission to London, England. So that was really nice and it was fun! There was over a hundred people there! As we looked around at all of them it was just a really good and satisfying feeling to know that maybe we actually had made a difference. We made some wonderful friends! The Magsinos and Jagmis families were there ( our investigators ) as well as the family that came to the F.H.E. on Monday. It was great to see all of them come! Took some pictures and said lots of goodbyes and shed a few tears. We love the saints in Narra!
