No longer a Teenager!! :)

Dear Family,

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. They mean alot. I can't wait for that big celebration that you talked about mom, when I get home.  :)  I am finally not a teenager anymore. That makes me so happy to know that. hahaha. One more year and I am completely legal of everything. hhahaa (jk dont worry.)

This week was good. I love my new companion and I love this area. We have a few progressing investigators which will soon be baptized... we just need to teach them.. they already come to church every week. :)

I miss youth basketball but I am glad to know that I can officially play with the big boys when I return :)  **Mommy note:  I emailed Spencer about the youth at church starting basketball this past week.***

Thank you mom for your reply about my question about Eve... That really helps and I always love to hear testimonies that always strengthens mine.  :)

Nothing really new here.. the days are counting down and I only have 4 months left to teach and be with these great people. :0 CRAZY RIGHT!  I really need to get to work.

Well I gotta go and celebrate with members. Birthdays on a Pday are amazing!

New Companion, New Start!

Dear Family,

Picture from the beach
 I am glad to hear that Nicolas has the YC member position. **Mom note: This is a position in church where the youth are in leadership roles and are in charge of dances/ Youth Conferences and activities.** I remember when I was the young men's YC member for the ward.  It was fun and the dances arent as bad as he thinks. I would know and so should he having been in ASB so..hahahaha

Meaghen may be following in my footsteps soon. I was Deacon and Teacher quorum president. Have her be ready lol.

Anywho... I got a new companion today! I am kinda excited because my previous companion and I had a tough connection. My new companion's name is Elder Fernandez and I do not know, as of now, where he is from but that's ok. 

I am excited to get to work with my new companion knowing that the time is far spent and I have only 4 months remaining...:0

Anyway... I love you alll and nothing new to report:)

Mom's Dropping the Ball, But I Love Her Still! :)

Mom note:  I started this blog post and then something caused me to pause/step away for a moment and then forgot that I never sent it.  Sorry to all family and friends that have been reading Spencer's blog faithfully!! :)

Dear Family,

I can't believe Meaghen is in 9th grade. I hope she enjoys it.  I loved high school and I know she will too.

Yes Kabankalan sounds familiar because I went there every Monday for P-Day when I was in Tuyom. I am back in the South and I have been assigned in all the south zones in the mission. hahaha

But nothing really is new. The area is not city at all. Nice branch. Love the people.

I transferred to Kabankalan

Anyway don't worry about me I am doing good out here. :)

Anyway I love you. I am downloading new pics too.

Dear Family,
Me and ward Mission Leader

So I have to give mom a little "what's up"?  I was told you didn't update the blog last week.  Make sure you do it this week or I will only be emailing G&G Evans!! hahah  :)

It sounded like stake conference was a good one so sad that I missed it:) I also have been getting emails about the elections... IS DONALD TRUMP REALLY THAT BAD...? Anyway, not much has happened this week so that is why I am asking about politics. LOL :)   

District Training meeting

I am feeling some "out of my comfort zone" becasue the area I am in is really bukid (Ilango for country/forrest land) and I dont do well in bukid or mountain areas. :)  I do much better in the city.

Me and my companion have been working together to be better together and we worked it out in companionship inventory. ***Mom note:  Companionship inventory is when they take a look at what is working with their companionship and what is not.  And what they can do to fix the things that are not working.***

Things are good here and I will update you when I get info about my return date.  :)

Sorry for the short email but thats it hahah
