Well this week has been pretty freakin crazy I don’t even know where I can start. Saying good bye was kinda hard but it wa really easy too I was so ready to leave but then when the people ur teaching are like “man u where suppose to baptisme me” its hard and then saying by to all ur converts and just giving them that last piece of advice u can, man it was crazy. My comp was pretty to leave though lol I loved him as much as I could but there was things that just bugged the crap out of me and im just glad I got through it, me and god did a way good job with him I think, the last thing he told me was, “ You trained me well don’t worry”, cause I didn’t want him going passaway and I was worried about people I left but it was seriously i trained that guy lol. My last night we had the funeral for that guy we killed (they gave him a blessing that he would die cuase he was really sick a nd old), it was weird, we were talking if we need to talk to pres cause we killed a guy or something lJ. alright so my new area, so it not the prettiest area but that is the last thing I look for in an area, my bishop is SOOO awesome, he picks up all are investigators and brings them to church, we already have a ton of baptismal dates and then I brought some things with me I have learned and we got like 5 more lol so this cycle will be a lot of baptism its so cool teaching people that actually listen to u and aren’t just trying to hide, that’s all I got use to over there in mabini, pincock is my ZL now I love that guy and miss him he said the same thing to me, and my knew comp is cool too his name is elder rause, and he is a stud, he isn’t the most obedient guy, but there isn’t a pure obident guy in all of my zone, I am seriously going to struggle its going to take all I got just to stay obideint, its cause the missionaries here are SOOO cool, there called spartents, it means that u work HARD but u have fun too, meaning ur passaway and u do passaway things, and the thing is they all get a lot done and there good missionaries, I already have a ton of friends, but there passaway too lol, so im going to do my best to stay obedient. But I am really excited for my area, being the leader is a lot different though, I didn’t know it would be, I thought it was just the same, but everyone looks to me here for everything, I taught are whole class yesterday for like a hour with nothing planned and we only got half way through the lesson. But im way excited for my area, its HUGE, and there is no tricycles, we WALK sooooo much, that’s like the first thing everyone told me when I got called there, but its alright I love walking, its just that its soooo stinking hot. Ok there is my week, now im way excited to here about the fair, I think my body is like way use to the fair, thats all I could think about all week, it was all I could just to concentrate on my real work J hope everything went all right.

Man this week went really fast, I don’t know why it just did. Not to much happned just a bunch of missionary work. Man it was crazy though last Monday I watched a guy dieing, he was literlay just slowly dieing and there was nothing they were goin to do about it. It was the weirdest feeling ever just seeing this guy on the very brink of death and all I wanted to know was what the heck he could be thinking of, one of his lungs calapts and it looked like it was SOOO hard for him to breath he was fighting for ever breath, it was way crazy. We had something pretty funny to, my comp is just dumb sometimes lol but we had a first lesson and guess what we taught?!?! Law of chastity, dumbo lol but it was actually pretty much a really good lesson and I was going to connect it to the restoration but she was just not ready lol her mind was probably like WHAT the heck who are these people, but she committed to live it so it was good I guess. We also got some more baptismal dates and stuff, are work is improving every week so I am way happy about that, my comp is always way shocked at are numbers, I think there kinda knew to him J, but something else happened that was cool this week, ok so here they have these awesome spiders and there way cool looking like there legs are all different colors and stuff sometimes and there real cool, there about the size of a quarter, and what u do is u catch them at nght and then u make them fight eatchother. U get a stick aout a foot long and u put them both on in and they fight, its really cool ill have to record it sometime but I got to do it. Its crazy the spiders crawl all over ur arm and then sometimes they jump so u grab there web and pull them back on and make them fight. It is SOOO cool. My comp is to scared to do it, if they bite u I guess u just get like sick or something. Not sure but it was way cool. My personal study has always been one of the best parts of my mission and I love it so much I learn a ton all the time. But yesterday I was reading or studying something and I thought about Christ being the only begotten. I started to read the Pearl of great price, man it is so awesome I love it. I remember a part that I read at the beginning of moses 1 lke verse 20 somthng when moses sees the everything and he is like “woe, I cant believe how small man kind really is, I never even knew that” that’s pretty much what I interpreted it is and it is so true and I don’t even have to see it like he did to know its true I trust him and then when u read there in Abraham about time, and how there is no start or end and stuff u just cant grasp it is so out of here. This earth life is SOOOO small its crazy. Well anyways tahts my week, pres also came and talked with us, he said I am moving and probably going to be a leader, or atleast senior next transfer, sweet.

Not a whole lot happened this week, are teaching numbers and stuff were really good so I was way happy about that but nothing real special happened, Except for our baptism, oh man baptisms are so awesome, I got to baptized Remi Joy Delacros Andres, man it was so awesome, Elder Farley was there and he said we never look more studdly then when were baptizing lol it was so awesome, and she is way strong she will be a big help for this ward and im pretty sure she will stay strong! But early this week was kinda cool, I did this job that was like rouging wheat but in palay and in a foot of water and a foot of mud, it was kinda hard but it was ok, we just were all talking with each other in the bukid it was kinda fun, but then we accidently missed District meeting, Oops J but it was cause last week they changed everything up and made district meeting a day earlier so we missed it, oh well I heard they didn’t even have it cause we wernt there haha. Man something else funny happened this week, while I was in the shower room I heard our neighbor singing and I was like what the heck, and she was singing “You raise me up” haha in English and of course the only place u would here that is from us and I was laughing so hard but I thought it was really really cool. Oh man we had another funny thing happen too now that I think about it, we were coming home from a far away place and it was way dark and stuff and then this motorcycle with a side cart passes us and is like get on, so I just followed my leader lol even though its bawal and they were WAY drunk, we even crashed, the guy drove it straight off the freakin rode, so we pulled it back on the road and switched drivers and I told them I would drive but they said that this guy wasnt drunk, LIE, and then it turned out the first driver was a member, I thought he was a good strong ember too L but then Sunday I served sacrament and I served it to him and he denied it so I was happy for that. But this week has just been pretty good, now im just setting everything up for my comp to keep the work going, cause really all I start and find now he is going to have to finish, it kinda stinks but it doesn’t matter who does is, as long as it gets done! Oh and then this morning I saw a kid digging through our burt garbage with a sack over his back, it kinda reminded me I live in a 3rd world country…
