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!)

06-17-13 I hate it, But I love it!

Hello folks! Here we are again on P-day. Time today is limited, so let's get down to business. 

This week, we had a mission training. They are making some changes to missionary work, and especially here in the philippines. We have been a mission focused on LA members, but they want us to shift our focus more towards investigators again. And to do that, we need to OYM and tract more. And, they want us to teach rich people in English. WHAT?! Yes, so big changes. We have dropped a lot of non-progressing folk and we are working like mad men to try to find new investigators. It has been crazy, but it is yielding some good fruit. We have a lot of people to follow up with this week. Should be a lot of fun! I'm excited to see what will come with all the changes. 

Interesting thought for the week. We are teaching a lady who doesn't believe that Jesus was crucified. She is way into the bible and studying. At first, my only thought was how in the world can you believe that if you read the bible? And still, I am a little baffled there. The whole Old Testament points to the fact that Christ would be slain for us and that through His blood, we could become clean. And in the New Testament, Jesus and the apostles teach about the sacrifice of the Atonement and how we need it to be cleansed and resurrected. And it just got me thinking about how crazy hard Satan is trying to deceive the whole world and how he will go to any lengths to do it. How lucky we are for the knowledge we have of the gospel and the plan of salvation and how lucky we are to be able to share it with everyone else! Spread the word!

We had an opportunity to bless a child this week that was bitten by a child and was having issues with rabies. That was awesome!

I forgot! Back for transfers, we were trying to get the sisters headed off to their new areas. We were sending them in taxis. We tried to flag down a bunch, but they weren't stopping. We flagged one that passed and then came back. Said he just felt like he needed to come back for us. Awesome. Promptings of the Holy Ghost can touch even people that aren't members. Hopefully, the sisters shared with him. 

And we have been having flooding like crazy! Rainy season is officially upon us. It has been wonderful! It's made for a very good time! 

Man, there is so much more to share, but no time to share it. Sorry! I will hit you all with a few pics and then I must be off!!

Nope, joke lang! My computer doesn't want me to put up pics. Sorry, next week na lang!!! Well, have a wonderful week! Share the gospel with your friends! And be good!

Much love,
