Crazy Eric

Hello everyone! 
I hope you all had a great week. I had another fast, but good one. I really enjoyed it. This last week we focused on teaching some of our recent converts and other members to try and help the branch out. For the last two weeks our recent converts at church have been very few so we have been trying to help them. We also were able to get our baptismal canidate interviewed and ready for his baptism this Saturday. He is so awesome and ready. I have seen a huge change in him. It has been amazing to be apart of it. 
It has continued to rain every single day this week. Gotta keep them bags on your head! Haha funny story,,,,,there is this phsyco guy here in Zambo named Crazy Eric. He is so funny haha I took a picture with him on Friday night. I got my picture with him and he continued down the road on his bike. A few seconds later this other crazy woman went chasing after Eric screaming at him and cussing at him and tried throwing a rock at him. Luckily it only hit his bike. But then she turned and came at me and Elder Ral and was screaming "Why don't you take pictures with me!?" It scared me haha not going to lie. Me and Elder Ral just quickly got away from her. But it was a funny thing that happened this week. I still love it out here and am doing great. I love you all! 
Have a great week!

Bag head

Hey everyone! 

This has been a really rainy but good week! It is definitely the rainy season! Haha but despite being wet all the time, it has been a great week. Elder Ral and I have been teaching a lot of our recent converts this last week. We also taught a lot of members and some less actives. Our IBD is getting ready for his interview this Saturday which is great. He is great. He has not had any problems with the word of wisdom since we taught it. I am so proud of him. We also have some new investigators that have some potential. So the work is going well here in Zambo. Just keep workin hard! 

With all the rain lately, there have been a lot of flooding in certain areas. One day we rode a trike out to one of our areas and it was fine when we got there but as we were walking back, the road was flooded over and we had to cross it to get home. It was pretty cool haha. 

 I am still loving everything out here. I am learning so much and just really learning what is important in life. I hope you are all doing great! I love you all and miss you! Have a great week!

P.S.     It doesn't matter if your whole body is soaking wet, as long as your hair doesn't get wet! People out here 
always put bags on their heads when its raining so they won't get wet. Haha

Swinging machette

Hey everyone! This week went by so fast, I can't beleive it. We have had a really good week of work here in Zambo this last week. We are staying busy finding and teaching new people. I am loving it so much. We have found a few new people to teach which is great. I am super happy that we are starting to find success again in the area! Our investigator preparing for baptism is still doing great. He is still progressing so well. He has not smoked or drank coffee since we taught him which is great. The work still is going great! 

We had an interesting experience this last week. We had an FHE at a members house and all the little kids were playing outside and having a great time. But this drunk guy came over swinging a machette and stabbing the ground! He was mad because the kids were being loud and he was just an angry drunk. So we all hurried into the house and stayed quiet for the rest of our time there. But it was pretty crazy and intense at the time haha. But it was so humbling to see all the kids just having the best time ever amongst themslelves. 

I love you all and hope you all have a great week!

Short week

Hey Guys!

Sorry this week is going to be a little short. I didn't realize my
time on the computer is almost over. But this last week has been
great.We have worked really really hard this week tracting and
teaching on the spot lessons. Our teaching pool is kinda small right
now so we are trying to build it up by tracting and stuff. Its tiring
but good. I am enjoying it. We are meeting some people that definatly
have some potential. Our one investigator with a date for baptism is
doing so well. He is doing well with not smoking or drinking coffee.
He is so strong its amazing. He has shown his faith so much lately by
not smoking or drinking coffee and coming to church every week. Its so
awesome to be a part of the proccess in seeing how far he has come.
But I am sorry its so short this week. I have to go But I love you all
and hope youre all doing great. I am still loving life out here in the
Philippines! Have a great week!

Bad English

Hey everyone! 

This week has been a great week. Even though we have had a lot of things to do and not a whole lot of time to work. We had only like 3 solid days of working this last week. The rest was all full with conferences and stuff like that. We have been working our tails off though every opportunity we get. Me and Elder Ral are doing great. I am loving working with him. Right now for this transfer, I am the only American in the house so we have been speaking only visaya. I love it. haha I know that my English is going to go downhill, but its better that way right? haha 

Our area is doing pretty decent. We are working really hard to build up our teaching pool. We went and worked in a new area and found some new investigators out there which was good. I am still loving life out here in the Philippines! Man I am just so happy to be a missionary out here at this point in time. I wouldn't rather be anywhere else! I love you all and hope you are all doing great! Have a great week!
