“New Beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.” ― Lao Tzu

Saw that quote and thought it appropriate
So yes, Transfers came about.
And my name was on the list.
Catbalogan-Samar.10I am currently in Catbalogan Samar, about 2 hours by van north of Tacloban. Located near the Ocean, This city is right in the middle of both the Ocean, and the mountains. In our district, we have 4 sisters, and 4 elders. one sister and one elder are from my batch so that is pretty cool.
Coming in to Samar, the ride was not the most enjoyable. About a hour away from Catbalogan, the road litterally goes back and forth, I almost thought I was going to throw up. Luckily I did not. Now, let me tell you about the People here. The People are AMAZING! We have had the opportunity of working with a member nearly every single day. Although I know that that will not continue, It was pretty cool, getting to know the members.
Now, let me tell you a bit about this Branch. Most chapels in Tacloban run off of Electric fans, no Air-con. This building, on the other hand, has a air-con 😀 One of the reasons I love this branch is the YSA, There is actually a good sized YSA group here, Which is great. I almost feel like I am at home. A lot of them actually remind me of who I used to hang out with at home, which is AWESOME! They are a good group of adults, and I am ecstatic for the opportunity to work and serve them. The Branch is doing pretty well, and I am ready for the opportunity to help it grow.
That and they love doing activities with the missionaries. so cool. We did one this morning, in which we got together with some people from the branch and just did games and such. I love it.
Other then that, a pretty normal week. I miss dulag, but as is the life of a missionary, transfers. I am excited for this new area. It was the first area of Elder Totiana, and I want to continue to help it progress. Thank you for all your support from back at home. I hope that everyone has a marvelous week,
With Love,
Elder Wilson
