My new companion is Elder Derecho which translates to STRAIGHT (the members and investigators were having fun with that) AH Derecho lang ha? Elder Derecho waay liko? (Ah just straight, Elder Straight no curve), he's from Quezon Province and he's super cool. He is two transfers ahead of me so he goes home in May. But he is super good at teaching and connecting with people! I already have learned a ton! He's actually 25 but doesn't really seem like it but I think that's just how it works with filipinos! They all look really young.
It's always hard to teach the area to a new companion, especially when the area is super big like ours! But the members have been super awesome this week and helped everything run smoothly and we are getting things going here because everyone wants to feed us now! YES!
We finally got to watch conference this week! Yeah I know we are late! You'll never know what it's like to have to wait a week to hear the good word! But all the talks were awesome and we had a lot of investigators come and watch!
So we are all out of water again at the house... I don't know why but the electronic pump stopped pumping water again! So we are back to the water pump! AH It's all good it's just a hard adjustment!
I didn't take too many pictures this week just videos and stuff but I actually had a picture of Elder Derecho because he was with us when we went bowling a couple weeks ago. He's the one in the far right! haha
Things are super good in the area though, somehow someone found out that my birthday is coming up and so there is a "surprise" dinner appointment for me except everyone already told me haha
Hope all of you have a good week!
What's your ponderizing scripture this week? Mine is 3 Nephi 12:20
BTW The pineapples here are so good! I ate a whole one by myself yesterday!
