Akong Pinalangga nga Pamila,
So things have been a little crazy these past few days. As of right now I am back on the Island of Bacolod training to be an office Elder for when they open up the IloIlo Mission. Last week they had my companion go to Bacolod for a week to get trained, and now I am in Bacolod getting trained. It is going to be quite the switch to an office Elder. I am not quite sure what to think. I think I might get fat again. That’s alright though because I need to put a few pounds on.
I will be driving also and learning how to text on a cellular phone, something I haven't experience yet. I can say I learned how to text on my mission. Our apartement might have airconditioning too. :) I will update you as more things unfold.
Well the city is going good. It really is alot different. Not as many people stare at you and yell "Hey Joe!" to you. Our area has been neglected lately because of all the sickness and other stuff going on. I was able to get out in our area this last week. My stomach pain is gone, just a little bad water or food intake. All is well now.
We have an investigator that had a stroke a few months ago. We have been teaching him and last Sunday we wanted to go to church. He can't really walk so we picked him up on Sunday with a makeshift wheelchair. The little paths we had to push him on were super small, and on either side of the cement path is the sewer. I was super scared I was going to spill him into the green sewage the whole time I was pushing him. It ended up going well. We got him to church safely, and after we took him home, he started to cry and said to me. " Thanks for taking me to God's church." It was a really neat experience.
Things are still going great as ever. Amat Amat in the language. I love you all so much. Thank you fam for all your email this week. I will try to reply as fast as I can.
