First Pday! First Area! First Companion!

This is surely the first of everything! First week in the field! YES! He is already in the field! How fast! Right?

Philippines Quezon North Mission is surely the best for having the best missionary! Elder Gumban's first pday on Monday! His first companion is Elder Salisbury and he is first assigned in Ildefonso Branch Baliuag. 

Members are so good! They have a very wide area composing of 30 baranggays! It is challenging that they even need to walk 4 hours to their appointments. The area was defined to be ricefield and "medyo bukid." However, Elder Gumban is so happy to serve his first area and to strengthen it!

Saying Hi to everyone! Email him at emmanuel.gumban@myldsmail.net! 




Missionary Training Center! 2 weeks!

2 weeks of training in the MTC was a blast! Well, Elder Gumban was called to be a Zone Leader in their two-weeks-stay which full of learning! How glorious and a wonderful calling it is for him! Sending how happy He is for everything to you everyone!





September 10, 2015: Departure!

Goodbyes are the hardest but seeing this guy walking into the entrance of the departure area bidding goodbye with his countenance shining and with his glowing smile makes it all easy. See you in two years Elder Gumban! You will be miss!
