Oh, about mothers day we only get to talk for like 30 to 40 min lol sorry but that’s what it says in the white hand book. Uh this week has been pretty good, u asked what i eat... u don’t want to know. I like saving my money so i usually just eat a ton of rice and a ulam which is just stuff to put on it. and its just out of a can, sometimes i eat pancakes too. i found the mix here so i was happy about that, i got sick this week, it was hard i was so weak and stuff but i still worked, my comp wanted to stay, he kept saying i was just going to make it worse, but i have different faith then that lol i just think he wanted a break, Man u guys wouldn’t believe how hot it ALWYAS is here its bad, we always have a fan on us and if we don’t u just SWEAT like no ones business. but I’m defiantly going through my testing time. Everything is so hard. EVERYTHING lol but i have gained the biggest testimonies how these trials are what grows us, i keep asked heavenly father for this faith in Christ, and this testimony that will help me on my mission and i know these trials are what is going to give me that faith and testimony(2cor,12:10 i think). ITs so hard though to keep that faith and know its all going to end up working out. Ur faith always gets put to the test, But i still love it all. i will only come home in a casket lol and i just dont drink the water at all, even though the other americans do, and i do eat fruit lol mangoes are the BEST
So how is school and everything? how is reading> did u study that prayer section in preach my gospel? its page 96 i think it PRAY WITH FAITH. I promise if u use prayer right, like in all ur studies and before a test and stuff u will be AMAZED at what will happen lol, pray before u study and everything god will help u and i promise,,, he knows algebra. Ask his help in everything. My favorite motto " pray like everything depends on God, then work like everything depends on u".
I heard the mangoes we have at home are terrible compared to here too and the bananas here are way, way better and everything here is just way sweeter tasting. they have the weirdest fruits in the world, oh and i have so pics of pineapple plants, ill send them home with the next batch of pics, im sending a CD home today of pics so it will get there later.
oh my gosh i miss that soooo much and i miss the people in that pick. WHo is at the bottom? Man its so crazy to see them, that’s what i want. i want pictures of like me with long hair and me in sports and i want pictures of friends and then of course u guys but i already of pictures of u, and i want and just all kinds of different pictures like that, SPORTS, FRIENDS, FAMILY. Those categories. Man i miss u guys, i didn’t even miss life until i saw this picture. I bought a ton of stuff today. I can’t wait to wear this stuff when i get home. I’m buying all kinds of weird Pilipino stuff lol. I don’t know what u want to hear about my week. We blessed someone with week and i anointed the oil on his head that was cool, then one of our investigators had her baby, it was so cute. and the place is getting ugly and everything is dyeing cause no rain. The people are still really nice here. Oh i saw a dog after it was killed and all fried up, the head was sitting in a pot and it looked so horrible but it was awesome and the whole place smelled like horrible wet dog, oh and then i saw this mother kill a chicken. its so cruel they just cut a little slit in its neck and squeeze the blood out tell it dies and it coughs it out and stuff ill send the video home i recorded it i think. i saw a guy here with a spokane washington hat on lol that was crazy and he was in my area we were just tracting I’m like dude i live there and he didn’t even know what the hat said. Oh and dude the people here have the weirdest diseases like u couldn’t even believe it, u know when dad flips his eyes out, well there is a kid here stuck like that and i have seen him try to fix it and it stays fixed for a little then it just goes back to flipped out it is so gross. we always walk by there and one time at night when we walked by he stuck his head out his window and i almost peed my pants, oh and that kid with that big lump on his chest that i send home died, people die here all the time. like ALL the time and the people were white things around there heads, the other thing is people get married here all the time and what they do for weddings is they play music all night and in the morning its still going and uh can here it in the whole barangy its soooooo loud and i swear there all over out house but it doesn’t help out t house is kinda in the middle, oh i was talking to this old grandpa and his teeth kept falling it out it was crazy he was mumbling so bad cause he was trying to talk and keep them in while talking. Oh and last time i got on this and i was emailing u i had a different missionary sitting right by me and he was setting up a facebook hhahahahaha loser. Oh and like stupid is like our f word lol and so everyone calls each other like fat and ugly like that’s not bad, there was this time and we were talking to this father and were like were is ur wife he was like that Mataba witch is fat and she was standing right behind him and she just smiled, how awesome is that, we would get slapped and also here u can ask anyone there age and they will tell u its not a problem at all> oh and then something else happened funny yesterday, this guy we have taught twice now the first time we taught him when he was done he was like i want to tell u something i feel and were like yes then he was like. when ever ur here i cant speak, he was like I’m really good at tagalog but whenever were here he just cant do it and he was like struggling saying this, he is actually in charge of this whole baragy and then were like wow that’s weird then this next time when we returned yesterday i could just tell he was like mad from the beginning and then it came out he was like, what kind of curse are u putting on me, why can i not speak, then we found out later that if he could he would just argue with us that is what a member told us about him so we think the spirit is just telling him to listen... See why i don’t tell u everything lol this is about a good 3 days worth of stuff can u believe if i told u everything of every week lol, Lets just leave it at THIS PLACE IS CRAZY, i see the craziest stuff just about every day lol.
