The Final Countdown

Go ahead and turn up the background music. Thank you Europe for that lovely piece...Haha anyways I'm in my last cycle now and I can hardly believe it! On Wednesday before the transfers were announced there were a few guys that told me they wanted to 'kill' me (in a mission sense. Don't worry Mom, it wasn't a death threat ha.) but the honors went to Elder Cabaliza. He is from Manila and he's 21 years old. He is actually my batch so we got to the field at the same time and we were also in the same zone in Solano when we were the two district leaders there and we have both been assigned in San Pablo before so we kind of already knew each other. But he's all good-chill guy, good missionary-so these last few weeks should be fun and I'm just continuing to make the most of the time I've got remaining! Everyone asks me if I'm trunky and if I'm counting the days and stuff but we're still doing solid with the work and I try to not think about that too much ha!

Things are still going fine here in Roxas. I'm not too sure what to say because it's kind of same old same old--There's actually a lot of 'investigators' who come to church but almost all of them are the girlfriend of a member and they can't even get baptized because they are living together but not married. And none of our other investigators are really progressing so we just have to keep trying to find new ones.

President Rahlf actually also informed us earlier that because of some unusual circumstances, Elder Latu is going to be in a threesome with us for the rest of the cycle; So he will be joining us tomorrow but I'm not too sure on the details or if we will have to work in Mallig (his current area) or not so I guess I'll let you guys know next week. Deuces! #itsthefinalcountdown #europe

Surprise! New Companion for a Week

Monday, July 6, 2015


I mean, um, America. I couldn't really think of any other good title but I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July. There were obviously no fireworks here and we didn't really do much to celebrate it but the time is continuing to go by soo fast, I can hardly believe it!
President and Sister Rahlf were in America for a little while because Sister Rahlf had to have surgery but they made it back just in time for MLC this last Wednesday. They shared some great messages (our theme was on 'doing' and 'being') and as always, it was nice to see some friends from across the mission and have a nice meal. Another thing I find enjoyable about MLC is at the beginning of each meeting we usually talk and council about different concerns and other things throughout the mission and sometimes people start having mini-arguments about random stuff so I think that's pretty funny to watch.
This week we also had splits with the San Pedro elders and I worked with Elder Haacke in their area. I think that was the third time that I have split with Elder Haacke but he's a good friend of mine here in the zone so it was pretty solid and enjoyable....Normally at church, the average sacrament attendance is over 100 but yesterday it was sprinkling rain and that was enough to bring our numbers to below 60. Somewhat disappointing but on the bright side one of the people at church was Rose so I was excited to see her there.

Not much else to say for the week. Jeff wasn't at church yesterday. Most the other people that we've talked to haven't seemed all that interested and none of our investigators are really progressing at all but we just need to be patient and keep working hard. Earlier we had a zone activity (combined with the Cauayan Zone as well) at Magat Dam so I've got a few pics. Love you all, have a good one!
