Elder Swift and I are home teachers for 4 families in our branch. We are assigned to visit them twice per month. I am his partner in the beginning until the branch learns how to do regular home and visiting teaching. When a couple is assigned home teaching in a small branch it will count for both home and visiting teaching. Today I got a visiting teaching companion and we were given the four furthest barangay (neighborhoods). This is because I have a car to drive and I don't think there is a another sister in the branch with a license to drive a car except me. I don't think most of the men have car driving licenses either, but many have motorcycle driving licenses.
P.S. We are singing Christmas songs in church now since the Christmas season started Sept. 1st. This was the first Sunday our branch sang them, but I think I heard some other branches may have started earlier.
