Yae my spling is gting pritty bad isnt it?
Yeh we have the transfer conference meeting but we don't do testimonies at them. They are actually pretty fast. All those who are being transfer come and then our President gives a message. The new missionaries all line up in front as they call their trainers. Everyone either laughs and says nothing when the trainers are match up with their new Bata (kid).
Well I am just going to make this the email for the whole family since I don't have very much time this week.
So HEY FAMILY,
I got the package from mom. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...thank you. I felt like it was Christmas a month early. I am loving the electric shaver. It is so much better than razors. Even though it burns a little bit, It’s still wicked.
I gave some of the snickers to an investigator of ours that asked me for some chocolate the other day. Haha other than that I pretty much ate it all.
Our work this week has been very minimal. Really it is pretty lame. We have been taking President everywhere and picking area Seventies up from the airport. That was actually kind of cool. I drove out to the airport last week with Elder Andres (the hermit king) and picked up Elder Misalucha of the area 70. I was pretty nervous about driving. Since the driving in the philippines is so crazy, I wasn't sure if I was driving recklessly or not. So busy week.
We are teaching a new family that we are really excited about. They are the Burungy Captain. Which means he is a politician of a certain section of the town. Here they have Cities. Example: Molo. and inside of Molo they have what is called Burungy. So the Enriquez family is the Burungy Kagawad or counselor of Burungy KasingKasing (heart heart). They are a pretty well known family. They are super sincere and really want to study out the church and change their lives. The mother came to church last Sunday, the first week after we taught her, which was awesome. Yesterday we got the father to say the closing prayer. So we are exited to teach them.
The transfer is coming up pretty soon. On the 18th of November. This next week after this will be the busiest week. The new AP, Assistant to the President is coming in to be trained. Two other office elders will be leaving and the newcomers and the people leaving and cargo, and hopefully work, and food. Sleep. wash clothes and just these past two days my eyes have started twitching without my control. It is super sabad (annoying). Well, I have to end it short this week.
