My new area is in the south end of the island
Guess what...I TRANSFERRED!!  I am headed to the south part of the island...i forgot the name so I will email you next week the name and my companion's name. I am on splits with another companionship because my new companion didnt come down with me .... transffers are very hecktic around here.  I am p-daying (prep day) in Bacolod because it is a 3 hour ride to my new area.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, dad!  I miss you and love you.

So Dad told me that Golden State won...... YEAH!  I did not want Lebron to win.  Don't like him.

The rainy season has started so its getting colder, thankfully. I still get wet, but it is rain and not sweat! LOL   So I have been told that there is a washing machine in the new area apartment and I am sooooo excited.  No more washing by hand!  LOL

Well, this is short because I have to leave as soon as the jeepny gets here to take us south.  It is kinda like a taxi but looks like a bus.  So, I love all of you and thank you all for your letters and emails.  Please keep sending them.  They really mean a lot.

Another Week of Ailments

I finally got your package!!!  I LOVE the calendar and the pretzels.  Feel free to send any kind of treats you want.  I LOVE them!!

So this week we were in the hospital with Elder Wade.  They thought he might have appentisitis but he is ok now.  The only good thing about the hospital visit was that I got to watch some of the NBA finals!  It was heaven!  :) But, this week should be more teaching, thank goodness.

I can't believe PJ comes home on Wednsday.  That was a fast 2 years.  Mine seems to be too.  Only 19 more months!  LOL

We have two family baptisms this week and we are still visiting with the Villajuan family trying to help them in their desire to become baptized.

I'm sorry but I don't have any pictures to send.  Hopefully next week.  And I'm sorry this is short but we need to catch up on missing last week of work.

Fast Week........Slow Progress!

We are guessing these are candied apples, but not positive!!
My favorite investigator is now a recent convert. This week went by super fast it feels like last monday was yesterday. I have been having very good personal studies lately and learning that fasting as a missionary isnt easy.  I cant go one second here without water becasue it is so hot.  But I am working on fasting and getting the water I need.  I hope that your package comes this week. Supplies schedule has been thrown off becasue of all the trainings. I hope you all have been doing good.

Church was good yesterday.  The lesson went well.  It is just so different here in the phillipines.  The ward isnt organized as fully as back home because its so new.  They have relief society, young men/young women, and priesthood.  But young mens president isnt active so it makes it hard.  We are constantly working on retention of the members.  They do get offended very easily here and they hold on to it for years.  But the work goes on and we continue to love and support them.

I read about Nicolas and his permit.  Also saw the picture of him in the car.  That is so freaky!!!  Also, since he is going on "Trek" youth conference this weekend, tell him to do everything and dont sit out on anything.  It will be a good experience for him.

Progress was kind of slow last week because Elder Wade got sick so we had like 3 days of no work. But I have been working on the language and the natives say I am 2 months away from fluent!! :)

Well that is all for now.  Talk with ya next week!
