Somehow, two years have passed. And Dallin will be flying back to the states on March 26th. It has been quite the adventure! I will encourage him to add his own summary when he gets back...(Living the good life in the Philippines, Quezon City North Mission. Entered the MTC in Provo on April 4, 2012. Flew to the Philippines on Sunday, May 13, 2012. What a great adventure! And what an honor to serve the good people of the Pines!)

05-27-13 "We got a fifty thousand dollar fine for workers..."

Yeah, finish that line yourself. Yes momma, first night back, we will probably watch that. Hello my dearly beloved brethren! Here we are once again. I'm in a computer shop, children on all sides playing dota, and using Facebook, and saying words that ought not to be said. It's a wonderful time of the week! 

This week has been good. We found lots of new people this week. 6 new investigators, just this week. Maybe to other people, that's not a big deal, but for us, that is huge! So basically, we've been teaching a ton! We've had a lot of good lessons as well. And yesterday, we saw some good results as we had over 20 Less Actives and Investigators come to church! Awesome!!!!! The work is just exploding here! I love where I'm at! 

We have a few investigators that are progressing very well and will be getting baptized soon! 

We also have a few kids that have been coming to church for about 4 weeks. We talked to their mom and she immediately wanted them to start coming to church with us. We haven't been able to teach her yet, because she owns a bakery and is always working there. But her kids keep coming to church and we started teaching them. They have even started greeting people and shaking everyone's hands at the door of the church. They are funny kids. 

No time to give you thoughts on the scripture of the week, but I did some study on Mosiah 3:19. Everyone knows the scripture, but I found some new things on repentance and obedience. Great study! 

Ah, I am out of time. We must be going so we can get to our FHE tonight. What a lame email. Sorry! But know that everything is going super super good here! I'm loving being a missionary! It's the ultimate best time in the world! 

Pics. I got a pic of a dead bat. Who doesn't want that pic? Sweet! Then some pics of us painting at a school. Then one of the girls from a family we are teaching. Cute right? Gotta love Filipino kids. Then the same girl and her sister and the pic they drew me yesterday at church. Some delicious Filipino food. Then us eating that food. Oh no, my face is covered. Oops, my bad. And then something we've been trying to picture for a little bit. So the first is several very very nice police cars all parked and lined up and looking good. Then the next is the zoomed in version. Don't know if they can't read English or they just don't care about the rules they are trying to enforce on everyone else, but we thought it was pretty funny!!!  

Have a wonderful week everyone! And don't forget your daily meds of scripture study and prayer, followed up with a good weekly dosage of church attendance. Studies done by a very awesome missionary show that almost 99% of all problems are solved by or through an answer from these three simple things. Wonder who made that study up on the spot? But it's true! Do it! 

Much love,
