Last Thursday, Elder Grow got a new companion, and also had the opportunity to eat at a Pizza Hut!
"Pizza Hut was delicious. my New Companion comes from Guimba. we were in the same district back there. this is his second area. his name is Elder Gregorio. I am his first co-senior and he is annoying me hahahaha! no, really he is nice, just TRUNKY for being only 3 months out! He is the result of a trainer who was not a very good trainer to him and then a follow up trainer who was WAY TOO STRICT! I mean, where i come from when members are playing sports and you show up and join in (example of the elders playing football at your ward activity) there is nothing wrong with that. Well his follow-up trainer would scold him for an hour about it... So now he just gives me a headache... but he is really good at teaching and thats all i am glad about! "
He also got his birthday package!
"I got my package and everything. It was awesome! Thank you. Didnt really celebrate my birthday just got wished happy birthday a lot had dinner at a members house then sat around and talked good laughs!"
Bug of the week:
" I found a GIANT Beetle the other day, the horned kind, and when you pick it up it hisses. that was way awesome! they fly and i dont like flying bugs so i got rid of it before it decided to fly in my face!"
Elder Quentin L. Cook and Bishop Keith B. McMullin, of the Presiding Bishopric came to visit the Philippines Angeles Mission on Saturday and Sunday.
"Elder Cook and Bishop McMullen came to speak to us and they taught about serving a mission and the blessings that are in store for you and the ones you can be receiving right now. Elder Cook gave a blessing to all of us that we will overcome sickness and temptations as we serve. it was pretty awesome."
Did he get to shake Elder Cook's hand?
"yeah i did, that was cool!"
Baptism, Former Companion, and Recent Convert
Well lets see what else is going on right now. We should have a baptism going on nov. 6 for J-Mark. he is our new investigator and he is golden. he is a for sure baptism. Elder Wihongi-Ritchie is now my Zone Leader so we are going to be having splits again and working together sometime this month that will be awesome. He was asking if its okay for two foreigners to be together on exchanges. i reminded him that that rule has been lifted for me because i was companions with Elder Latu hahahaha he surely laughed and then said something in a ghetto new zealand accent. Our Recent convert Deo, he is like the ultimate person to scare, he jumps so easily. and you know those goats that if you scare they pass out... i think he has that part in him. there has been several times that i have scared him and he has collapsed to the ground hahahaha. he is really afraid of snakes and dogs and the streets always have dogs everywhere! so when we get one barking and following us if you are walking beside him you can reach down and grab his leg and he thinks the dog is attacking him! hahahahaha he is a good sport in it all and he tries his best to scare us but it never works. Oh and loud noises make him jump hahahaha well anyways life is good over here!
