Week 41 - We are sooo cheezy!


Haha you guys are always so cheezy in your letters. ;D  It wouldn't hurt to throw in a few more jokes e'ery so often eh. ;)  Things are great here. Yeah we got 2 new investigators. They are the nephews of a member. They just moved here, but they're going to church and listening to the lessons, so hopefully that will go somewhere. They worked with us too yesterday. I'll upload our picture a little bit later.

Other than that me and E. Faa have been having a great time. We just had a district activity. It was one of our sisters birthdays, so we bought cake and cooked food, played volleyball, and had a water fight. The only problem we have right now is Money. I know I hate to ask, but we were unwise with our money this cycle. We spent too much money on food.  Next week, the first week of June, I think I'm getting transferred.  So I shouldn't have this problem again. Is it alright if I withdraw a little bit of money. Just enough to get through this next week?  Anyways, thanks for everything.

I love you guys. I'm working hard for ya'll!

Week 39 - Mothers Day Skype


Messages from the mission:

#1 - To the families of the missionaries in the Philippines Cauayan Mission,
You may have been made aware of Typhoon Noul heading toward the Philippines.  The storm is now expected to turn away from the mission boundaries and should pose no real threat.  Your missionary, however, has been asked to be prepared and on alert.  You will be notified, should things change.  Thank you again for your prayers.
#2 - Hello families!
Due to the real possibility of some power outages on Mother’s Day (due to the previously communicated Typhoon), some planned calls may not occur as scheduled.  Every effort will be made to make the Mother’s Day call occur.
And from Tanner:
Oi I just figured out there are no webcams here. So on Friday we will be in tug city, we'll just try for then! We are also experiencing some brownouts.
Finally got to talk to him on Thursday night (his Friday)!

Week 38 - Dinner appointment every night


So this week was pretty basic. Had Stake Conference this week, so we were in Tuguegaro for Saturday and Sunday, then today again and also tomorrow for our district meeting. Everything else is just fine here. We are teaching all our investigators with baptismal dates. Unfortunately, they weren't able to come to church because of Stake Conference in Tuguegaro. So that was disappointing, but hopefully this week they will all come. This week we had a dinner appointment basically everynight. Good things about polys, they are always focused on food, which means they always try to set dinner appointments.
