"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Two Weeks Worth

Wednesday, 7/9/14 - Temple Day/PDay

Yea, all's been great! We've had a lot of baptisms fall through, so I'm not sure we'll have anymore before I go home. But we for sure, we'll have a wedding on the 19th which I'm way stoked for. Which means I'll have a wedding, sealing, baptism all on my last transfer. It's a good way to end it. Just havin' a blast these last few weeks before I come home.

I've been so tired lately. This is the third pday in a row that I've gotten up at 3:00 am. Aahhh! I cant wait to come home and sleep! We always talk about that. Why are we also so freaking tired? Oh, duh! 'Cause we've been doing this for 2 years now.

Yup, no more fast Sundays, no more more zone meetings, which means I don't have anymore workshops, no more temple days. I just keep counting the last of everything. I hit my 2 year mark next week. Crazy huh? That's all members and the people we teach ask me, is about going home. We started planning out our final dinners and plans with our favorite people before I leave. We have another wedding on the 19th :) Hopefully this goes better than our last.

We got to meet the new mission president and his wife. They're way dope. I like them a lot, especially Sister Bertin. She's way down to earth. It's so it's nice to have them around.

I'm doing good. There's just a lot going on this transfer, so i'm just always tired. We've had some problems with one of our recent converts, so it's been a bit stressful lately, but we're doing great! I'm just trying to enjoy the last of everything,

Yea, did I not tell you? They pick us up early on the 29th. We have our last supper at the mission home and have our exit interviews with President Bertin. Then we get to go stay at a hotel in Manila for the night. I'm way stoked for that. There are lots of cool kids I get to go home with. There are like 25 of us all going home together. Some of my old comps Elder Jackson and Elder Mariano. Also Elder Johansson and Elder Vea and all of them. I'm not sure if you remember them but my batch is pretty dope. We all split up after we get to the states though, so I'm not sure who you'll get to meet.

Monday, 6/30/14 -- Fingerprinting

I'm doing way good health wise, and everything's great. I'm excited to come home and not be sweating 24/7 Haha! But today's been chill. We had to get up at 3:30 am so we could be at the mission home by 6. Our batch went down to the embassy in Manila to get our fingerprinting done so we can come home. My comp leaves a transfer after me, so he didn't come today.

Yea, the Sperry's are gone now and I gotta meet President Bertin this morning. He seems way chill. It's weird not having the Sperry's here, but it should be fun.

Love ya! See ya in exactly one month.

Changing of the Guard Coming Soon!

We're way excited about the work here. We've been doing tons of visits to new less actives that bishops told us about, and we actually got a few of them going back to church already. We got one, maybe two baptisms on Saturday and then we have a family getting sealed on Wednesday. As for that other wedding, it will either be this week or maybe next week, but probably next week though. Things have been way fun lately. We have just been havin' lots of good dinners with the members, getting referrals, new investies to teach, and some good baptism dates coming up. 

Our new mission president gets here on the 29th, so I'll see them on the 30th when my batch goes in to do our finger printing before we go home in only 37 days! I can't wait to see you all!

Love ya!

Final Transfer - I'm Stayin'!


The new temple out here is in the more northern part. I've had like 3 comps that are from up in that area.

I think its funny that you and mom already saw pics of the wedding (on Facebook). Yea, it was way dope. The girl is our investigator and her husbands a less active. They're great though and we're baptizing the girl on the 28th. It's pretty exciting. We have another wedding next week for some less actives, and then a temple sealing for another family. We're pretty excited. I get to stay in this area until I go home. Weddings, sealings, and baptisms. It sounds like a good way to end things here.

Hey, how was Fathers Day? Keep an eye out for my letter. It's not much, but I just wanted to say Happy Father's Day.

The last transfer of the mission sounds good. My comp and I are staying here and we've got some big plans to go hard my last transfer. See ya in 43 days!

Love ya Dad!

Hey Mom,

I had my x-ray taken and I don't have TB! The new mission president will get here on the 29th, so I get to meet them a day after they get here. I get finger printed on the 30th for my visa. I will also get to see President and Sister Sperry one last time before they leave since we will have our Mission Leadership Council that week as well. The Sperry's are dope. I will miss them. I hope I can see them sometime when I get home. I'm stoked to see everyone when we get home and we're not missionaries anymore. It'll be cool to see what everyone's really like.

Hey, I gotta get going though. Sorry, no real update again. I told dad a lil'. I'm just never in the mood now since I'll see you guys next month anyways. I already gotta write to pres what we did and write in my journal. Ha! I'll tell you in person soon enough. But love ya mom! Thanks and I'll see ya in 43 days!

Love ya Mom!

Happy missionary companions and friend.

Last Zone Conference with President and Sister Sperry

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Temple Day and X-rays Coming Soon!

Yea, Elder (Craig C) Christensen said a lot, but I don't know what you would like for me to share. He did say something that I've been thinking about. As LDS members, "we need to let others see and hear our testimonies". We've been focusing on a positive attitude with our zone, figuring out that same thing. How do we let people see our testimonies in us and see the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Anyway, it's gettin' in to rainy season. It's been raining like everyday lately, but I just tell people that I go home next month, or I just count by p-days and say, "Only 6 left now!" Sounds good to me! It's crazy that this is the last week of transfers and then I'll start my last. I've been way freaking anxious wondering if i'll get transferred next week. I'll find out on Friday though.

Yea, I wish we could Skype for Father's Day. It's all good though. Yours will be even sicker cause I'll just be coming home instead.

Things are going way good here. We were supposed to have a baptism and wedding this Saturday, but our investigator has been super busy and stressed for this wedding. We haven't been able to teach her so we'll just do the wedding this week and the baptism a different week. I'm way excited for the wedding though. I love those! We have another returning less active getting married, on June 19th. That's a day after transfers, so I might miss it!

I'm way excited to come home, but i'm holding up good and still working and studying hard.

Love ya Mom and Dad!

Last Zone Meeting

(Note from Mom:  emails are getting shorter and shorter as we get closer to Elder Molnar's return.  He seems to still be focused on his mission and loving it.  We honestly have never heard him complain.  He prefers to keep the spiritual experiences close to his heart and promises to share more when he returns stating that it just doesn't feel right sharing stories through email. Mostly, he asks about school, registration and updates around the home. Not much to really share this week)

Hey Mom. Miss you! We had our last Zone Meeting with President and Sister Sperry. They gave us all goodbye hugs. It was a good warm up hug with Sister Sperry, gettin' ready to hug my mommy. Yup! Next month!!!

Dad -- What the heck? I want some gyros! Make sure mom makes me some when I get home as well as a nice Greek salad. Yea, we had our last Zone Interviews. It was crazy saying goodbye to the Sperrys. Hopefully you guys will get to meet them sometime. But yea dad, see ya next month!! Ya stoked? It is going by way fast.

We also had a dope Mission Tour. Elder Christensen from the Seventies came and spoke. Our area is doing great. I'm just getting anxious to see if I'm gonna transfer one last time or end here. Either way, guess it's all good.

Hope you're doing good! Love ya and see you in 56 days!

May 26, 2014

We saw a horse so you know we had a fun week!! We got wrecked by the rain the other day though. We were walking back from a lesson out in the fields and these huge clouds rolled over from the mountain and nailed us. We booked it to our next appointment all pathetic and drenched, but they saved us with some towels. We had a black out, or brown out as they say here, so we had a lil' candlelight lunch. Then it hailed too, like bigger than a quarter size. Ah, if only it were snow....

We had a way dope baptism though on Saturday. We have this family we've been teaching. The mom is inactive as in hasn't been to church in like 25 years and her husbands not a member, just their 13 year old daughter. But we baptized their 17 year old son and they all came. It was great! We've been teaching them every night for the past few weeks, so we've gotten way close with them. He gave a great testimony and broke down a bit. He's got a crazy past for a 17 year old and just talked about how after his girlfriend left him and took their kid from him, he wanted to fix things for his kid. So he started going to church with his sister and me and my last companion started teaching him. He quit smoking and drinking and now reads, prays and goes to church and plans on serving a mission. We fasted with him the other day and then took him out to eat at McDonald's afterwards. I am way stoked for that family.

We're having fun though. We keep having investigators show up that we've been teaching. We had the young man above and now 3 others. All 21 and all have gages and tats, but they all like rap. Two of them are artists so we get along well. Its way fun teaching kids our age, helping them to figure life out other than just being young wild and free.

But that's about our week. Only a few more of these reports left and I'll be home! Got flight plans and all! I'm so stoked. Love you!
