Week 17 - February 21st

This past week was a little bit slow, we spent a whole day walking and we got an average of two lessons. 

Nobody is coming to church. So we did a lot of walking under the hot humid weather. 

But President Nelson's  talk  was very spiritual and uplifting.  So the talk helped appreciate whose name I'm wearing every day. So I hope when I leave I can change spiritually and apply the principles that I have learned during my mission.  But it first starts by committing yourself in your heart that you want a change. 

When you love your companion, become 100% obedient and choose good. President Haney promised us that we for sure will experience change.

Elder Driggs sent these pictures from the Philippines


Week 16 - February 14th

The Church Global Communication Department had a technical issue this week and thousand of missionaries email never arrived to their destination.

We were one of those families that didn't get an email!.  

We know Elder Nelson is visiting the Philippines this week and will be giving a Devotional to the Quezon City North Mission. 

Week 15 - February 7th

Missionary work is good. We have had these less actives come to church 4 weeks in a row and so now they aren't less actives any more but we still teach them. 

It is really hot here and I am always sweating I'm starting to forget what snow feels like but I'm used to the weather now.   

This week I oymed 2 Americans 1 guy from Thailand and another person from Spain also of course I also oym Filipinos every day. 

We also are inviting a lot of people over for church and we have 2 less actives and we have a baptism this month. 
Also on Saturday, as we were looking for a less active we had this massive swarm of kids like 15 of them and they followed us all the way to the less actives apartment crazy right?

We asked him about paying someone to wash his clothes.
No I don't really pay anyone to wash clothes. But I am paying some one to wash my clothes today. But its a lot of clothes like all my pants shirts and p-day clothes cuz right now all my clothes are dirty because I never have the time to wash them so my shirt isn't gleaming white any more.  Actually in this case, I am and the money I give him is going towards his mission because serving a mission for a Fillipino is really expensive so all my roommates pay him.

Well this past week I was walking and I oymed an American who married a girl from Spain and so I sort of oymed here in Spanish but I'm forgetting a lot because the Tagalog is taking over. 

Hey one of my favorite scriptures is Moses 1:39 "for behold this is my work and my glory to bring to past the inmortal and eternal life of man"

I love you too (pagmahal sa ating)
