A little more than 4 months left...

Hello everyone!

Well this past week has been tiring. It felt like it dragged on until about Saturday-ish, when things got normal again. But it's all good now. It's a brand new week, so time to change some things up.

Friday is Zone Conference, so that will be fun... Especially since now I'm ZL1 (the senior), so I will be leading in basically everything we do. Woo! Hopefully I don't die. 

So I really don't have a lot to say this week. BUT I do have a ton of pictures to send, and I made sure that I can use my card reader here... SO THERE WILL BE PICTURES!!! :D

I love you all and can't wait to see you when I get home, except for Domenick, since I have to wait for you to get home. Still love ya brobuscus! :D

PICTURES!  No usual...and pictures of usual.

Apologies and the usual weekly letter (July 19, 2015)

So last week was crazy hectic and tiring. I got transferred AGAIN!! D: And also last week the mission asked us all to complete a survey, and being a Zone Leader I had to call every missionary companionship every like 5 minutes and the have the Assistants call me every 2 minutes... It was crazy. I read like maybe 5 emails, I didn't even email President (which I did this time before this email.)

So right now I am in Bata... Which is a part of BACOLOD! :D So I can finally enjoy the city again. I actually live in the neighborhood next to President Barredo... So I may or may not be visited by him randomly. When he got here he said he wanted to come work with the missionaries... So we might be first, since we live like walking distance from the Mission Home. :D

Well I have like a ton of pictures, but the computer I'm sitting at does not allow me to use anything USB. :( I will see if I can move or something, I actually have quite a bit of pictures to send. 

I actually have something to request... It's really random. 2 bags of the super huge marshmallows. It's a really long story, but long story short- it's a gift to a member. :D 

But that's about it for now... I will see what I can do for pictures. I am running on about 40% mental capacity right now. Zone Leader life is hard but AWESOME! :D

Another Week in Paradise... Sort of... :D

Hello once again audience! When we last left off, I still couldn't speak English! And now, it's still the same! :D

So for the past week it has been raining. like not just like "sprinkle-sprinkle" and then it's done, more like what Carly did except (#FLOoded #FloDead) it flooded my entire area. But no cars died. :D I have a video but its like wayyyyyyyy to big to send. It's crazy. 

THERE WAS A BAPTISM!!! But somehow I lost my white tie... I really don't know where I put it. I had it all ready to go the night before, then boom the next day it be gone. But the baptism continued anyways. There are pictures for that. 

So the other day I had a member pull out yet another silver hair.. I'm getting old apparently. D: #TooYoungToBeOld #ForeverYoung 

Well last Thursday we wen't down to the mission office (usually called "Galo" because there is also a chapel there too) and we met President and Sister Barredo! And I got the David question. AGAIN.(#AbiKoTaposNako) They are both from here so they speak Ilonggo. AND before that, we got shots! D: No pictures there, but there were cookies. :D 

I think that's all I have for now. We have MLC tomorrow and Zone Conference later this week. President and Sister Barredo did take pictures, but I have no clue as to where they be. Maybe they'll make a Facebook or something. 

There are a few other pictures I have to send, so I'll get to those. 

Peace off. If you sneezed during this email, bless you. Peace off. BOOP.

These little tiny berries taste like cotton candy. They're called Sarisa.

This was the water of the baptismal font on Saturday. Ew.

Batpism! :D 

A picture someone took of me whilst eating. I really need to get my clothes fitted.
