"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

Kumusta everyone!

What's good?! Officially done with my first week! So nuts. It's actually been pretty sick here,and it gets better everyday, especially on P-day which is today! Yeah buddy. Plus tomorrow all the new kids come in tomorrow.

It sucks not having music so I just sing myself to sleep every night.

We've been teaching a Filipino investigator lately who doesn't speak any English. Yesterday we got to our class and found out we were supposed to teach him right then, which none of us had any idea. Me and my companion went first and winged a 20 minute lesson all in Taglog for him. And it actually went pretty good. Who does that?! Well I guess it had been 6 days of learning Tagolog. Fluent! I can already carry somewhat of a basic conversation, bear my testimony, and say a prayer and all that without notes or anything. Gift of tounges is amazing.

Gym time here is so dope. We just play sand volleyball the whole time and it's so fun. My gym time is Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 1-2 and Thursday and Saturday from 8pm-9pm. There's also lots of kids here who can do flips so we all tumble together. Of course I'm the best. Duh.

The only bad part about the MTC, is when I go to gym or the temple and I realize that I'm still at home, but can't go see anyone or do what I want. Luckily Sunday we had a fireside and the speaker talked about giving up your "useless cares" and serving others for once. That for sure got to me and I've been enjoying myself a lot more again. Plus I have so many friends here, on my floor, in my building, Taylor and Lane have the same Pday as me.. It's a freakin party here.

My teacher, Brother Langer, taught us a sick lesson yesterday about teaching investigators. Luckily he finally spoke in English so we could actually understand everything. Good quote from Elder Jeffery R. Holland I'll share with everyone. "Everything in the conversion process must happen to you before it can happen to them." Dope.

I love gettting letters and packages! It really is like Christmas when you get them. If anyone would be so kind, here's some things that would change my life. A cheap fan for our room, a big bouncy ball, frisbee, some non perscription hipster glasses, treats are always nice, and just whatever!

Love you all! Mahal kita! (I love you)

Quick Tagalog for everyone. Tawagin mo ako medyo (call me maybe). and of course.. Hindi ka alam maganda ninyo (you don't know you're beautiful)

Magandang Gabi!

-Elder Peter Molnar

Magandang umaga kumusta po kayo my family!

Well, I survived the first day already. It's really not that bad. Ive already adjusted to waking up and livin' the prison life. Too easy. It's so sick.

Yesterday I saw probably 15 kids I know. It's like a high school reunion here. My buddy Ben Miles lives on the same floor as me, and my homie KJ Redder lives in the same building and is in my zone. It's like a freaking party here!

My companion is Elder Wait from Arizona. He is way chill. My other roomate's a chill too, kinda dorky, but chill.

We had our first investigators yesterday and I learned how much you have to dumb down the lessons to the basics. Biggest thing I learned, we need to get to know God's children and learn about them so we know what to teach them, and what they need to hear.

My Tagalog teacher is pretty dope. I met him a while ago at my buddy Kyle's Philippines party. He only spoke Tagalog the whole time, but I actually learned a lot. I got this down.

Aight well, gotta get back to study time. Peace! Love you guys!

He's In!

Hello Friends and Family:

Our son was set apart last night as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our Stake President, Bishop of the Single's Ward and his father were in the circle to bestow this great honor and blessing upon him. From this point on and for the next two years, he will be called "Elder Molnar" by all.

We pulled up curbside at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, at 1:15 pm MST today. There, we were greeted by senior missionaries to turn Elder Molnar over from the care of his parents into the hollow of His hands.

Elder Molnar will spend the next two months learning Tagalog, and preparing himself for the mission field where he will serve until his return in July, 2014. He will sacrifice much, leaving behind his family, friends, all his worldly goods, putting his education on hold, and forgetting himself. He will focus on serving the Lord and the great people of the Philippines, Quezon City North Mission, with all his might, mind and strength.

We would like to express our sincere love and appreciation to our family, especially those in Utah and those recently visited in California, who have shown Christlike love and support.

Our thanks also to great leaders in the Church and Seminary teachers who have assisted us in teaching him Gospel principles, and being amazing examples of solid family values.

To Elder Molnar's friends, we thank you. We know that he could not have done this without you. What an incredible bond of brotherhood you all have, and what amazing parents to have raised such wonderful young men. To you all, GO FORTH AND SERVE, AND RETURN WITH HONOR!

We love you,
The Molnar's
