So in answer to your questions, first from last week, and from this week, it feels really weird to be out for an entire year. Like when you’ve thought for so long, “not even halfway yet” and then suddenly you’re halfway and theoretically standing at the top of the mountain looking down into the valley. … More Santa Rosa! #SOE nothing less
Last Thursday was transfer Day! So now I’m in Cabanatuan! (Like actually Cabanatuan) My new companion is Elder Pahuyo, from Mindanao. He speaks Visaya, and is already a really good functioning missionary even though he’s just off being trained, I’m sorry for ranting to you guys last week, but I was having kind of a … More Transfers!
To be truly honest, It hasn’t been hot one day this week. Like I even slept without my fan with the sheets on. It was honestly cold one morning. You can see from the pictures that the river is really high. Like 6-10 ft. higher than normal. I don’t need to wonder why, because it … More Weekly email! =) Pictures haha
July 17th We are having a hard time in our area right now because our investigators aren’t progressing as well as we would hope. Yesterday (on Sunday) we invited all of our investigator to come to church and they all said they would. And none of them came…. 😦 makes me sad. We are trying … More Finding week (I uploaded some new recordings)
Well during zone interviews President Clark said he was going to make me district leader as well, but he wasn’t sure I could handle a brand new ward(mostly), being senior companion, and being the new district leader. I heartily agreed with him. Even now I have some trouble with being the decision maker; however I’ve … More Teaching is hard!
So far, we’re just trying to reopen the area, and get to know the members so we can get fellow-shippers for our “new Investigators”. It’s really hard sometimes to be the senior companion. I have to decide where or what we are doing all the time, and I am also responsible to be able to … More I’m doing alright 🙂 How are you!?!
Really? So Grandpa Bell got a new companion? Hahaha! I don’t know how I would feel being grandpa’s companion. Intimidated, or maybe happy? I dunno. [Emily got into] Choir of the Titans!? That’s great! Tell her I think that’s amazing! It’s really hard to get into CT. =) Hahaha, that’s how I felt when you … More Camiling 5th branch-new area- Elder Neilsen-new companion
Hey! I haven’t seen an email from you guys this week yet, but I suppose that’s kinda what I deserve. I’d like to say that I didn’t have time to email, but I did have time. I started downloading Mormon messages and converting them so we could watch them later, but, by the time I … More I’m with the zone leaders again….
Alright, I think that I’m going to use google again, however I’m not totally sure what is going to happen. I honestly got a huge scare by Elder Dela Cruz because he told me yesterday that we were going to call home today. Yeah he was wrong… However, I’m feeling good about this week, … More Week? Month 7 Year 0 (man, I’m still really new) = (
Being completely honest, every day I come home soaking wet. Either it’s really rainy or it’s so hot that I sweat enough to make it seem like I fell into a pool. (Recently I had a combination of the two, yuck) Also, Cabanatuan is the hottest place in the mission so when you check it’s … More Hey! Hows it going?
