I am officially 19!  Kind of a weird birthday, but it was good anyway.  Thank you to everyone that sent me birthday wishes.  I really liked them and helped my day to be a good one.  This was my first birthday without cake.  I miss cake. Haa! Haa!

Not much of excitement has happened the last few weeks.  I did learn that even tho you don't pay yoir bills on time God protects you so that you can live. LOL My companion seems to forget that he puts the bills in his bag and then we end up paying them late. Thank goodness God is on our side and not the other way around!

Our family that is working on getting married is still working and being strong in the church. It costs a lot of money here to get married so that is why people just live together. But our family is being faithful and working on saving the money to get married. They are a really good family.

Also I have found what it means to truely have the love of god for other people. Some of the Philippine people think it is funny to whistle at American's like they are dogs. It gets me really mad but I try really hard to ignore them. It has really helped me to see how just little thing like a whistle can make someone feel bad and hurt.

My toe is finally getting better and it doesn't hurt much anymore so that was a really good thing this week. Elder Cancel has 5 more weeks left in his mission and is getting really "trunky". It is kind of hard to work with, but I will probably be the same way. :)

Well, that is about it. I love all of you a lot and miss you guys. Talk to you next week.

Mom forgot to Post!!

Neighborhood pet
Just helping you see the size of the spider.
*Note from mom* So I do need to apologize for not posting sooner. It's back-to-school time for his siblings!

Hello Family,
Mom, I got your birthday package this week.  I promise not to open it until my birthday . . . . maybe!!

This week was a little tuff.  I haven't been feeling well so it hurt our work a little.  I think I just have a stomach bug or something.  But the mission nurse and I are keeping an on it.  My toe is feeling and doing better so that is good.

 Elder Cancel is really great.  He helps out a lot since I am not feeling well.  Plus, I think he loves the extra sleep!  We still do our personal studies and prayers so don't worry mom.  I am not slacking off! ha!ha!ha!

We got more rain this week but I didn't get to enjoy it because I was inside the house.  But I am sure there will be more.

We may have another wedding soon.  One of our investigator families are planning their wedding so that they can be baptized.

I am excited to see them baptized.  They are a loving and fun family.
Well, that is all for now.  I love all of you very much.

Short and Sweet!

Farmland from Sagay
Hey mom,

I had a great week. We still have alot of struggling inactive's but with the Lords help we can reactivate them:) I love you guys so much and hope you're having fun:) It feels weird to email you knowing you won't read this until Friday. But its ok because you are with family that is what's important. 

This week went by so fast and it only gets faster... I guess thats a good thing...LOL I dont have any new pictures...:) It's hard in the city because I have taken pics of everything in Hinigaran.:)  Some bad news I think I have an ingrown toenail and it hurts but I am talking to the mission nurse about it:)

Nothing new is really going on here except for the less-active's:)  Anyway I finally got G&G Evans' package so if I were you I would send my birthday package now if you haven't already:)** I cant wait to hear from you guys soon:) It's hard to talk but I am on everyday for online prosyliting and that is more successful then actual prosyliting lol.

This area is fun but I really miss Sagay because I miss the members and my recently baptized members I was close with them and I will keep that friendship forever.:) I was able to Facebook chat with Meaghen and Nicolas since you are out of town and that was pretty cool.:)  Anyway enjoy the cruise and I hope to see some pictures soon:)
