"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

Sup mom?!

This will be a bit shorter. Not too much happened and I don't have a whole lot of time, but we just got done playin' ball with some of the young men in our ward. Killed it! Ha Pilipinos are so funny. Freak, I don't even know what happened.

Hope Thanksgiving was good. We had a little feast ourselves, but oh well. Only one more Thanksgiving to go!

Hmmm our investigator John is gettin' baptized Saturday. I've been lookin' forward to this one. This kid's a freakin' stud. He showed up to church yesterday all shirt and tie and everything. Yeah, one more year and this kid will be a missionary. I can see it. So sick. I'll send some more pictures next Wednesday. We have Temple Day day next week so p-day will be on Wednesday. Life's goin' good though. I'll have some time to write letters later so i'll give you guys a better update.

Oh by the way, we need to figure out what the plan is for Christmas skyping sesh. K, so I'll call Christmas day here, so it'll be like Christmas eve night for you guys. Hopefully around 7 or 8 for you guys at night. But yeah I'll let you know for sure eventually, but they told us to coordinate that.

Aight... love you too dad. Tell him I found a guy who makes sick caribou horn belts. I'll get him one.

But yeah - love you guys!

Happy Thanksgiving from Elder Peter Molnar and some of his friends



What's good mom?

Sooo, yeah. Get the kids something from me for Christmas, for sure. Honestly I don't really need anything from the States, Oh and the Bamgartners wrote me, so tell them I can only write to family. But yeah, Santa Maria is in my mission. I'm in a different zone though, Novaliches, which is in Caloocan City. Ha yea, definitely a new experience here but it's a blast.

So for the weeks update!.. .Aight, so life's good, just swingin' from vines, catching fireflies at night, when it rains, kicking these giant bull frogs on the street. just the usual. Yeah, the saying everything's bigger in Texas...bull!! Ha! things are way bigger here. We found a mosquito in our house last night the size of almost the palm of my hand. No wonder I get eaten alive at night. Not as bad anymore though. They just love my American blood.

But yeah, same ol' same ol'. Hmm...had a way sick week though. We found a lot of new people and new investigators. Killed it! We were walkin' down the street on a day after gettin' punted by a few appointments, and this lady came up and was like,"Hello Elders." So we were like "Whaaaat?" "Hello Elders", she said. "I used to be taught by missionaries back in the day. Want to come teach my family?" DUH! So we went and taught them. Way nice. The Chu family. Her husband is a member, kinda less active though. Her sister wants to get baptized but can't for another 3 years cause of marriage laws here. but we're teaching their kids! Three of them are old enough to get baptized, so we'll see! The parents came to church yesterday.

We also taught this 18 year old kid named Duding. He's a stud. His girlfriend's a member and came to church a few times. We taught him 3 days in a row this weekend and got his bap date set. So sick. Way dope week week this week. Love the fact of God is preparing people here to hear the gospel. Makes our job so much easier.

But that's about it! Just got done bowling at the mall for P-day. Way sick. Elder Redder, a kid from my health class at UVU, was there, so we got to kick it today. Dope!

Aight, love you all! Hope you like the Christmas cards i sent!

Freak! That's so crazy with all the mission calls everyone's gettin lately. Tell them all congrats for me. Has Ben Wright gotten his yet?

Yea, Thanksgiving's coming up. We're gonna make pizza at a members house for it. Yeah, hopefully I stay in my area for another transfer 'cause a part member/less active family said we could use their stuff to Skype [for Christmas]. They're freakin loaded. It's the family we took to temple tour. Too bad they don't speak English but you can still meet them I guess.

Oh, tell the Tan's and the Faggioli's thanks for the letters. Have Jesse's mom keep me updated on Jesse. Italy this week! Sick!. Oh, and tell the Taniguchi's thanks for the headlamp. We didn't have electricity for 3 days and one night I had to get up and [us the bathroom], and it's the Philippines so you don't have much control over your bowels, so I had to [go to the bathroom] in our pitch black bathroom. But luckily I remembered i had that headlamp. Saved my life.

Yeah so Obama won? Welp, that sucks. But on the bright side, I had a dream earlier this week that he won, so I've been telling everyone I was psychic. Called it.

Yeah being on a mission is a lot more of a sacrifice than I thought, especially here. I've learned I've had to sacrifice my body as well as everything else. So so far I've gained 12 pounds. and I stood in front of a full body mirror the other day and found out where its going. Right to my gut and my butt. I stand sideways and I have this weird little "S" shape goin' on. Yeah... although it is kinda cool. I've never had butt before.

Haha! So I saw my first big spider here. We were eatin' dinner at a family's house, just kickin' it and I look up and was like,"Tunay ba 'yan?!" is that real?! there was this huge spider like the size of my hand just chillin' on the ceiling. They were like yeah, he comes down but you just poke him and he goes away. Ha yeah. In the States you see a little dime sized spider and everyone screams to kill it. Here, you see one the size of your face and you just poke it and it goes away. So I was like, so it's nice? Like you can hold it? "yeah yeah it's nice." So i poked it with a stick to get it off the ceiling and it started grabbing the stick and biting it. So I asked, you sure it's nice? It's kinda biting the stick. "Yeah it's just a gagambahay". Just a friendly house spider. Anyways, let's just say I had some fun chasing it for a while trying to get the [nerve] to grab it. Yeah. I poked it with my finger and that's about it. Then some guy comes and starts chasing it, grabbing at it and gets a leg, and the leg fell off and the spider left. So nuts! I can't wait to see the bird eating spiders. Oh, and soon we're gonna fight spiders. That's what kids do for fun since they can't afford toys. Catch a spider, shake it in your hand till it's biting you cause it's [ticked] and then put it on a stick and fight em! Dope!

Primary program yesterday. Ha, so funny. Little kids are hilarious. Plus the program was in English so these kids had these high pitched little Asian accents. Ha, I was dying.

Well that's all for now! Sorry nothing spiritual. But yeah, love you guys!

First Baptism

Oh yeah it's Aria's birthday. Make sure you tell her happy birthday for me! Thanks for sending me the Dear Elders of the bois blogs. That's sick Spencer's finally in Argentina. Yeah if you could keep doing that just sending me those through dear elders that'd be great. it's nice to be able to hear about them. Have you heard from Conner yet? But yeah keep those coming!

Thanks for sending the package. I should be gettin' it pretty soon. I would send a Christmas package home for you guys but its so dang expensive to send things. I'll just make sure I buy lots of stuff for everyone before I come home. Everything's super cheap here for the most part. but yeah glad to hear everyone's doing good. Ah, it's gonna be so crazy to see Cyrus and Aria when I come home. Can't wait. Oh and yeah, I've seen Elder Waite a few times now.

Aight, so I had a way sick weekend. Ready? So there's this less family we've been visiting and trying to reactivate them and help the brother get worthy so he can baptize her daughter. But yeah, so we had temple tour on Saturday and took them with us as well as some of their katulongs or helpers/maids or whatever, and their driver who are gonna be some of our new investigators. But yeah, the family's way rich. So we took them and another less active to our temple tour so they can see the temple, learn about it and all that. We do one of these once a transfer. So that was way sick.

Right after that we went to the church and one of our investigators got married and baptized. So sick! They have a kid so obviously they had to get married first before she could get baptized. Her husband was a less active we were working with too. But yeah, they got married at the church then we had her baptized and her husband then got to baptize her. How dope is that? 

This week has been crazy getting everything ready. My companion and I baked a cake and cupcakes at a members house for the wedding and basically had to do everything to get stuff ready. Super crazy. Ha, oh and my comp and I sang "Nearer my God to Thee" in Tagalog for the baptism. But yeah, way sick. I'll email a few pictures in a minute.

But yeah, that was my first baptism. Not much else has happened this week just cause we were gettin' ready for Saturday. Oh, but we have our temple day next Wednesday, so that'll be Tuesday as well. Talk to you then!

Love you guys!
