Still Settling into New Area

Dear Family,

First I want to tell Maxwell congratulations!  I am so proud of his accomplishment of the Arrow of Light.

I hope Meaghen had fun at girls camp, and I am glad to hear that Nicolas is following my footsteps in cleaning. LOL.  As everyone knows I love to keep everything nice and tidy. ( aka. The garage). Anyway, I hope all is good and I know that I haven't sent pictures in a long time... I will try to send some next week when I have more time. These past two Mondays have been really hectic getting situated into my new area. 

I also had a baptism this past week and I will send pictures when I can and I hope that you are all doing well.

I love you all and I cant wait to hear from you soon.

Short Time in Colonia Divina

Dear Dad, 

HaPpY FaThEr'S DaY.  I love you so much.!!!!! :)
Dear Family,
This past week was a good week. My companion was Elder Shumway.  He is from Hawaii. It was a great week with  him but I transferred after only 6 weeks in Colonia Divina. I was really happy to be transferred. This area was really difficult with no progress no matter what we did. 

So I am now in Victorious Ward... That is in Cadiz. My new companion is Elder Dio. Do you remember him? From Tuyom. My 3rd companion. I am so happy to be with him again because I had so much fun with him last time.

Meaghen--Those cupcakes look so good but you might want to stay in the kitchen because when I get home I will beat you in golf. HAHAHA

I am glad that everyone had a good time in Carlsbad and that there were no car accidents hahaha. 

I hope Nicolas is excited to be a senior. Let him know that senior year should be fun but to also take it seriously. You only get one senior year in high school but you still need to do the best. I love him too much to let him mess up his future plans. hahaha

Anyway talk to you next week.

Normal Week and Transfers

Dear Family,

This past week was a normal week. Normal lessons and everything.  We had zone training this week and as usual I hade a lot of inspiration to use in my area. Everything was going great and then....

****************** WAIT FOR IT *************************

Elder Dela cruz transfered. (I made the gap for suspense.. hahaha.)  I miss him. He was one of my favorite companions. We never fought and we always had a strong unity in lessons. :(  I dont know who my new companion is. I will let you know next week after I meet him.

I am happy to hear that everyone is enjoying their summer vacation.. Here in the Philippines TODAY was the first day of school.. hahaha

Not much more to report other than transfers... I love being District leader. This position is not used for recognition but I seem to understand people's problems more clearly for some reason. :)

The members in the branch are good but the less active members are still hard to help. I can't tell what is keeping them from church because all of the active members are really sweet and kind.

I love you all and hope all is well there in the heat..hahah

Tough Week

Dear Family,

This past week was kinda hard. We had to stay in Sagay with nothing to do till Thursday because support didn't come in time... because of Memorial Day.  No new news to report here.

 I am so happy Aunt Lori had their kid.... I voted for that name so I am glad they went with that:)  Let Nicolas know that he needs to understand no matter what the project for his eagle there is manual work involved. Sorry to bust your bubble. HAHAH. What are the last 3 badges that you need?  Also, let Meaghen know I am glad she had a good time with friends at the 8th grade Magic Mountain trip.:) 

Mom, sitting in front of fans trying to stay cool really sounds like the Philippines hahaha Good luck if that is a fact.I can't believe that summer break starts tomorrow that means my mission is coming to a close and that is hard to think.:)

I can't wait to come home and play softball again. It is pretty funny to hear that they won by forfeit.  Even though I didn't keep my baseball gene from when I was a kid, I still love to have fun with the ward. Can you believe that Elder Wade goes home next week. That is INSANE!!!!

My area is really a struggle because every time we extend a baptismal date everyone denies...SO... we are finding all new investigators to teach.

Tell Grandma and Grandpa Evans I got their email and tell both Grandma and Grandpa Evans and Rimington that I love and miss them very much. Tell G&G Evans  I am happy that their car got fixed but not so excited about the price they paid hahaha. Great I am starting to sound like a parent.:(hahaha

Well thats all for now folks. hahah Love ya all.
