Well it has already been almost a month and now the time is really starting to fly by! I remember last Pday feeling like it was yesterday! This week had been great! I actually have to give a talk this coming Sunday, but it only has to be 5 minutes long so I am set! We also have 2 investigators we are working with. One has a big problem with word of wisdom, but he attends church and he told us that he has a strong desire to stop doing drugs and stuff. I am hoping he can stop, because I really want a baptism. It is mainly because I have had to attend about 5 different baptismal interviews for the Sisters that work in the other ward in Rizal. I don't know how they do it, but I am really starting to get jealous of them. The second investigator is a teenage guy who is pretty cool. He has a little dog named Chihuahua that loves me. I kid you not it does so many circles around me that sometimes I accidentally step on it. It is as fast as lightning for real. I love it to death though. The investigator has been making excuses for coming to church, but he thinks I am pretty cool. I told him that this Sunday we would be at his house early to come to church with him this Sunday. I guess you could say I can be stubborn when I want action...
I have gotten into a habit of writing in my journal everyday. I am proud to say that I have not missed a single day on my mission. I think I am up to about day 73. I have also become more proficient in my personal study Although it has taken me a little longer than I would have liked. I am to Moroni in the Book of Mormon. I will probably have the Book of Mormon finished by next P day and then I can start on either the Bible or finish Our Search for Happiness.
So to finish off this email I want to say that work is going great. I honestly love this member in my ward Nanay Febrero "Nanay Mabeauti". She is soo funny and likes to tell me to fight my companion hahaha. She even got me a mosquito net!!! WOOHOO! Let me tell you, I could not have been more excited to put that on my bed last night. No more mosquito bites for me. Also last night I witnessed a pig get killed and cleaned. Also.... I got to experience my first dog barbecue. The family just had the dog roasting on the fire like it was a hot dog. At first my brain didn't comprehend what was going on, but I picked up on it real fast. Well that is it for me!
Lots of love,
