Indang 11-25-2015

MWe live in Molino where our Mission Office is. However, we have been asked to attend the Indang Branch in the Naic District. 
This is our Indang Church .

We have been driving there for several weeks now. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there, depending on traffic. We love being there. There is no air conditioning in the building. They open the windows and turn on the fans. It is almost like being outside. I love it.

Last week we drove down to Indong on Satursay to attend a baptismal service. This is the baptism font.

Not at the building of course. A little cold, but does the job.
We are loving this.

Baptism in Ternate 10-31-2015

Saturday, October 31, 2015, Sister Petersen and I joined 3 other Senior couples in a little trip to Tagaytay. It is a little resort city in the south part of our mission that is located next to the Taal Valcano. A beautiful area. I have posted about it before, so I am not going to post anything here about it now. 
After, we traveled to a Ternate, a little town in the Naic District, for a baptism service.
I always take a flute along just in case it is needed. Today, I was asked to play prelude music, and some interlude music also. I love playing the hymns of Zion on my Native American Flutes. I started 10 minutes to the actual start time, but played for 40 minutes. ( common Filipino start time, 30 minutes late).

Ternate is a little Branch. I love the Branches. Some of the Branches meet in make shift houses, but Ternate has a little building.

There is a baptismal font there, but it is located outside.

Elder Hansen and Elder  Aguillon are the missionaries that are teaching the baptismal candidate today.
We had Elder Hansen leaving next door to us when we first got here. We got to know him well. He is a great young man.

This was a great service. Time for everyone to go home.

I love my mission.
