"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

I love how all you and dad talk about are the chickens. Life sounds pretty insane back home! But ya, we got a text last night that we're expecting a typhoon today with 165 km/hr winds! Just prayin' it comes! I haven't had any good storms yet, so I'm stoked!

What else? Just us four elders in my ward getting ready for our new album to come out. Haha, getting pretty famous out here. We composed another song for another missionary in our ward who is going out. We played for her farewell. She's going to Hong Kong, so we did a little mashup of English, Tagalog, and Cantonese (we had a Chinese elder here translate for us). Our ward started calling us Elders Direction. I always wanted to be in a boy band!!

Ummm...just teaching some new investigators we have. Actually, we're doing way dope. We have this one. I'm not sure if I mentioned her yet. We taught her about the Book of Mormon and Moroni's promise the other day and she's actually doing way good. She's been  reading and was tearing up as we had her say the closing prayer. Already feelin' the spirit!

Also we have this guy we're teaching. We had a way sick lesson last night. We ended up teaching the whole first lesson about Joseph Smith and stuff. He struggles with family problems and the Word of Wisdom (duh everyone here does), but he told us he knows this church is true. But then again the last church he went to was Inglesia ni Cristo. When they baptize you, they hold your head under the water till you see Jesus. They have "authority" to kill people if needed. They give you money to come to church then after baptism, scam the crud out of you. Basically just what 2 Nephi 26:20 states: (2 Nephi 26:20 And the Gentiles are lifted up in the pride of their eyes, and have stumbled, because of the greatness of their stumbling block, that they have built up many churches; nevertheless, they put down the power and miracles of God, and preach up unto themselves their own wisdom and their own learning, that they may get gain and grind upon the face of the poor." So, comparing us to his church especially. Duh! He believes us. We haven't given him a date yet, but brought up baptism with him!

But ya, dope week. Duh. As always!

Peace! Love ya!
