MAN BUMBER about that 4 by 1, im sorry about that that is too bad! sounds like everything went pretty dang good though. i love hearing about it, i cant belive its all going by so fast, track will be over by next week and then everyone will be graduated... WEIRD! Oh BTW, before i forget. if you could send me some dermitex or something that would help me get rid of this scar on my leg i would be very thanksful. i was looking for some stuff here but its really expensive if i buy it here but i need to try to get it off before it get to long. THANK YOU!

Well my week has been CRAZY. so much stuff has happened this week now that i look back on it. but some how, despite it all, we were still able to get a LOT of missionary work done. Tuesday was weekly planning and a ton of work. Last Wednesday we had a huge meeting again with all the missionary leaders in the whole mission, that was fun. we talked about knew principles that they want us to focus on in our zones and districts and just how we can make the mission better. These things are always way aweosme and i always learn a ton i wana take back to my zone and teach. The only bad thing was that, that meeting almost took up the whole day. we just got home and went straight to work untill night time! We also got SOAKED that day. its now the rainy season and it rains a TON. it gets scorching hot during the day and then rains at night, as in POURS down rain, you get soaked... But its all good as long as they will still let us in to teach. Thrusday we had to do our weekly planning because friday we went and observed at others. we observed at one of our district leaders who is in a harder area and is struggling to get it going. it was good. at first we got lost and couldnt find there house but after asking a few people, and doing some oyms :) we found a member her lead us to the house. it went good. Saturday was the day i got to go back to MABINI!!! man that was so fun. we left the house at about 9 and went to ilagan first and stoped at the closest store our hole region has to a AMERICAN store... it was awesome. i was flabbergasted :). we stopped there to eat. we ate at a SWEET restraunt but it was pretty funny cause we were eating with our hands and im pretty sure a lot of people were suprised haha. just imagine and these philipinoes using utensils but the 2 Americans are eating with their hands :) it was cool. then we finished up there and went straight to mabini. it was a LONG drive but soooo worth it. we got there a little early so we went around to some of the people i baptized and they were way excited to see me :) it was SICK. they are all way strong. but i found out they all knew i was coming cause they had announced it last sacrament meeting. ive never seen so many people attend a baptism here in my life haha. and one of the best things was one of the people that was baptised was the husband of my the women i baptised a long ago. so now there complete in the gospel!!! he was all illicano so we couldnt teach him before but an elder got assigned there that knew illicano so it worked! the coolest thing was i wrote them about 2 months ago and told them not to worry that i knew tatay was going to get baptised. then when i got to nannays she said he had read my note and then the elders started teaching him and he wanted to get baptised. i knew i felt impressed i needed to write them! but that was soooo cool. remy joy is now the young womens leader over there and is doing awesome and the other big family i baptised are way strong! man i cant really explain how happy i was to see them, and way more to see how strong and awesome they were. the only bad part of this whole story was the way home.... MAN the way home was horrible. we were rushed on time and had to get on a bus or we were going to sleeping in illagan so we jumped on a FULL bus going to manilla but that passed through santiago. i ended sitting in the middle isle on a bag of feed... and my comp sat in the middle on someones luggage. it was SOOO uncomfortable and then the worst was it was dark and in the front they were playing a, had to be, rated R movy that was stupid and was the only thing u could see unless u looked straight down at ur feet. so it was sooo hard to avoid that. plus it was unconfortable and we couldnt lay down to sleep. it STANK, i was so jacked wehn we got off. oh, and another thing was while we were on it a earthquake went off. you've probably heard about that. we didnt really feel it because we were on the bus but all the other missionaries felt it :), no one got hurt though so it was all good. then sunday we had a good day. got a lot of work in and a lot of good investigators. god is really blessing our work here and i love it. we had a lot of distractions from our work this week but despite all that we had and aweosme full week. it was just all missionary work which is the best! well i think this letter ended up being really long... we'll i love you all and i hope that you have an aweosme week. INGAT!!!
