So this Preparation Day Elder Booth and I put “Email Family On Time” at the top of the list. It is now late in the P-Day and we have little time. My comp hasn't emailed home for a few weeks and I am getting bad. That’s probably one of the next deadlier sins. But I will try to do everything I can so I can write on P-Day.
So how is everyone? Our family is spread across the world...what is with that? Leah is in Guatemala or something, Mom and Dad were in Europe, Heidi is now moved, and I am preaching the gospel over here in the Philippines. It’s kind of crazy, I can't wait to hear about Leah’s adventure.
I would like to thank you all for the Happy Birthday and mom/dad tell everyone thanks for all those that have written me letters. I will....I repeat..I will send them letters...sa pila ka adlaw.
Well here’s a little bit of an update. Things are going well in the Office. I am learning how to drive with the Filipinos. It’s like "Need for Speed" the race car game. I am getting good at it. Oh and there is no worrying about cops. The cops here don't really care how you drive...but of course I am driving safe. I love you Mom.
I am having a really awesome time with my first American companion. It has been nice being able to relate more and laugh more. Our teachings are a lot more effective and a lot more Spirit drivin...good.
Regen and Mars are doing awesome. We had to extend their baptismal date one week, but they’re doing awesome. On Sunday only Regen came to church. So that night we went to our appointment with them. We ended up having a lesson with them. So we started the lessons... We talked about their commitment and covenants in baptism. It was really a good lesson...and at the end Elder Booth and I asked him what was he thinking about. Elder Booth shared a really good experience and in the end everything was good. It was really stressful and then a really relieving lesson. Regen and Mars's baptism date is week after next week on Saturday.
As of now, it is Tuesday the day after our P-day. I had to finish my letter now because we had a FHE yesterdat evening at the Constitinos. When we went there someone had passed away so there was a big party outside. It’s one of the traditions here… I guess it’s a cultural thing.
Well I am going to get started on my Personal study now...so talk to you all later. Love you.
