"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

Whasss Goooood?!!

Well it's only been a couple days so not too much this week. Plus the weeks are starting to blend together so it's hard to think of what's been going on. Hope conference was good. We're watching it at our stake center this weekend. 

Yeah I bought a flash drive so i can copy pictures before I try to send some home so I won't loose any. I'll send pictures home next week for sure. aight?

Hmm.. what're some of the highlights this week?... My companion and I are working hard so we can get some baptisms goin. We've got 8 investigators with bap dates coming up so should be good! The whole marriage ish in the Pinas is killin us though. You have to wait forever for paperwork and everything so a lot of our investigators are just waiting on that. We've been teaching the Calugas family a lot lately. 3 times a week. They're seriously the golden family everyone wants. I'm excited to have my first family baptism soon.

Today was way sick. We went bowling just barely. Everything here is super ghetto, but the malls and stuff are way nice. nicer than utah. But I felt right at home today. At the bowling ally they were playing DragonBall Z on the TV's and playing american music, LMFAO and stuff. Ha and people say you can't do stuff on missions. Plus karaoke is huge here. Our neighbors have allnighter parties a lot so I hear Call Me Maybe and everything soooo much. ha love it.

It's sick here. You feel like a celebrity walking down the streets. Everyone, without fail, everyone says "Hey Joe",  "Whass your name" or "Ano height mo"(what's your height) or they just sing the song Call Me Maybe to you. Yeah whoever said the Philippines would be a humbling experienced... yeah that's a lie. Ha I'll probably get even more cocky from all the attention I get here. I finally got proposed to the other day. Some girls were following us around the other day and one for me asked me to write her and marry her. Whelp, bought time. I mean I've been here for almost 3 weeks now. haha

Oh something weird. My companion and I were giving a couple blessings to this less active family and I gave one to this guy. When I was giving the blessing, he passed out and then woke up all sweaty and stuff when I said amen. Either it was really powerful or I'm just super boring when I talk.

Well everythings going good. Still don't really understand anyone. Even if they speak English. It all sounds the same here. But it's gettin better.. Fast Sunday was yesterday and I was dying while we were walking around at like 6 pm on an empty stomach. Then we had 3 different dinners with different families after that and I was so full. Guess that's what I get for complaining. Some of the food is way good here. Just rice with different toppings called ulams. Uh although spaghetti here kills me. It's just tomato sauce with hot dogs for the meat.

Eh well that's all for now.

Love ya guys!!
