Week 49 - October 9, 2016

Hey do you know Elder Schmutz talk? 
You know the story about the guy who lost his house and his family? and he became a Stake Patriarch. Well it just so happenes that the same guy is my companion's Stake Patriarch isn't that cool? 

My Week

Several days ago I was just walking by and I just so happened that I accidentally kicked off this sandal from someones foot and they didn't even notice until several seconds latter and then she saw me return her shoe and she was so surprised that I was an American and that I knew her language. 
Then, the group she was with, were really shocked just like her and then they started asking me questions which eventually lead me into teaching them the Book of Mormon and I said that God isn't just the God of Israel only but he is the God of this world and the Book of Mormon has God's dealings in the other side of the world. So I gave them 2 Book of Mormons and then I also got a return appointment on Tuesday and I think out of this group I can find a lot of investigators. But yeah this week has being successful and our finding efforts are increasing by splits and working with members

Also I steeped into a drug store and I was ordering medication and I started speaking Tagalog again and one of the guys next to me on the counter jaw dropped down for several seconds it was really funny. 

Also we have a member and we always throw his cat around like at a dog and its so funny they fight a lot. And he has a really crazy hyper dog.  I've never seen a hyper dog like this before its sort of weird.

While I waited for Elder Driggs to write his email I designed this poster as a way to represent the story he shared.  I am planning to frame it and hand it in this bedroom.

Week 48 - October 3rd, 2016

This week I had the opportunity to go on splits a lot and when we go on splits we find more. So splits is a helpful tool for us although we didn't have any investigators at church. 
We were still able to hand out book of Mormons and pamphlets to people. And I always work with him and he is super smart and intelligent he gives me some tips.  He said that when we oym we need to say that our church is called Mormons. Because when we say that we are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints people will just think that we are an other catholic church but when we say Mormons the will ask the question what are Mormons? People become interested when they ask questions.

Also on Friday we were at a members house and we were teaching, they sort of live in a tin shack and it is easy for the bugs to crawl in. And i noticed that there was a centipede crawling up on one of there matress that was pushed to the side of the wall and it was about to come up to our member and I haven't really seen one before and I wanted to hold it but as soon as she noticed it she started to kill it ,which took a while to kill. But they told me that if a centipede will bite you, it is poisonous, it can cause fever or sickness and if even several will bite you, you can die. 
So, that's an interesting experience that I learned.  So, watch out for those. 

Well, my not so new apartment any more is nice it has 2 working bath rooms, air conditioning but we don't use it because it is expensive and the tiles that are on the floor are high quality it sort of has a patio in the front.

I get along with all of my companions.

Hey guys how are you doing?

I have recently being working with our branch mission leader and he is very knowledgeable and he knows where everybody lives. So, we went to this inactive's house and it looks like he needed us because he had some problems while being inactive and now he want to talk to the branch mission leader and repent and he also wants to go to church and bring his wife to church which she is an investigator. Also since he is a tricycle driver we get free rides with him to church. So he had a problem with some Law of chastity issues and the timing was perfect at sacrament meeting it was all about the family and marriage and science, our inactive friend isn't married to his spouse, Sacrament meeting was perfect for him. 

Also while we went on splits a lot this week we found lots of less actives and investigators. We had 15 investigators at church and 30 lessons and I get tired so fast. 

I realized that missionary work is fun when you work hard.

Week 46 - September 19, 2016

My week

We have a new RC

Also we had Elder Schmutz visit our mission from the Seventy

Work is hard here, it is a city and the people act differently.

We have Stake Conference and it was hard proselyting because our members were at Stake Conference we are only allowed to go to Sunday session.

I spent our whole p-day moving apartments that's why I am sending this pretty late and I am tired and I wish have more to say but what is going on in my mind is that I am tired.  

But I love my new apartment, it is just like an apartment back home in America.

Hey you can go to bed if you want I am tired, I just moved apartments, not a lof of stuff happened this week.
