Molo Iloilo City
So I am not in Estancia anymore. That was kind of a surprise. I thought for sure I would stay in my area for a while. My companion Elder Budy stayed in Estancia and now is companions with one of my batch mates, Elder Ellsworth.
My new area is crazy. Way different than anywhere I’ve been so far. I am in the city now. Iloilo City. The area I am in is called Molo Iloilo. It is so much more...normal here. The people are way different too. Alot more like it is at home. They even have pizza places here. That’s huge.
I live in an apartment with six Elders total. It is a blast. It is so much more fun when it’s more than just you and your companion in an apartment. My companion’s name is Elder Garcia. He is from Philippines gi hapon, my 4th Filipino comp now. The city is really confusing. I can't get around my area at all, tons of roads and little roads and mazes. It’s a mess.
So now I am just trying to get settled in the new apartment and meet all the ward members and investigators. We had a sweet Community Service Project with the youth of the ward last Friday. The Youth are really fun. We played basketball today with some of the youth too this morning. The Ward here is awesome too. It is well organized and actually functions right.
It’s so weird coming from these other really far out there areas with barely functional wards to this. It is great though. I am super excited.
Things are going great. Little by Little. Love you all so much. I’ll update ya more next week. Muah,
