This week has been pretty good, even though we’ve had some rain and thunder and lightning…We were walking home last Monday and we were chatting while wading through water and being rained on. When we were like 100 feet from our house, lightning struck like 30 ft. away. I’m telling you, we sprinted through that … More Hi! Kinda short this week… sorry =)
Yeah so I did email last week and I pressed send but apparently it didn’t send at all… like I don’t even have drafts from my writing. Anyway I’ll get you up to date. =) So last week was transfer week, and I was a little nervous because I hate being put in a brand … More I emailed last week, but I guess it didn’t send…. = (
I’ll be completely honest; it’s way too hot here all the time. And here in San Leonardo it’s kinda dusty, like really dusty. When a car, truck, or tricycle drives by it kicks up a lot of dust. I believe I’ve said this before, but it rises with the air and bows in our (beautiful … More It’s sooooooo Hot here.
This week was great! While working with the zone leaders I was able to improve my Tagalog which I’m sad to say might never be fluent = ( However I will still try my best to learn. The language is still hard, but it’s getting easier to manage. Also, I got a new companion, Elder … More Same area and New Companion! Whoa! Finally!
I’ve officially had 4 companions this transfer. Yeah big record huh? As I wrote before I had Elder Taimani as a companion for the first 4 weeks of this transfer. However, he was on his “last legs” as a missionary. I say that because he was about to “die”, as in go home. A mission … More Transfer after Transfer after Transfer!
Yeah, this week has been really rough and with Elder Taimani going home it was pretty weird too. =) Elder Taimani left this last Friday and because of that I went to Mangino and worked there for a day with the zone leaders. It was a good experience, and I learned a lot from them. So … More Hope you guys are doing alright. =)
This week was special just because we had Zone conference; there I got to see some of my good friends from Guimba. (Guimba zone wasn’t there, but a lot of Guimba zone got transferred last transfer) That was fun. =) Then Elder Taimani had an interview with President Clark, the one interview he’s been waiting … More Love your neighbor. (Week 4 in San Leo.)
So last week I was trying to write everyone who had sent me an email, but I ran out of time to email you guys and when I was finished with my “group email” from last week I decided to wait for another time to send it. It was almost all a spiritual thought and … More Week 3 in San Leonardo!
I am officially an Elder in the Zone of Gapan, serving in the San Leonardo area. New Companion, Hardships and Trials! Last Wednesday was transfer announcements, and that morning (seems like a month ago =) Elder Grado received a call, and President Clark said he would be training again in Guimba Three. Unfortunately, that means … More Transfers! And New Beginnings!
This week has been a week of New experiences, Ranging from being senior missionary (in spirit), to seeing a dead body for the first time. It’s really (talaga) interesting. (Yes, I do see how it’s ironic that this is an Interesting week, and last week was just “The Usual”) But all irony aside, it really … More
