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!)

2013-10-28 He forgot to name this one...

Hey all you folks!!! I'm sorry to tell you all again, but some folks don't know. But today is a holiday and also a day of voting. So there is no school and there is no work which means that all of the computer shops are completely packed! It has been a joke trying to find a computer to use. So we are late and very short on time. So the email today will be rushed and brief. Let's get a move on shall we? 

The teaching this week has been great. We are finding more members and more investigators to teach. We are really trying to focus on our active members and trying to get them involved in the work. We are starting to see signs of progress there. Slowly. Slowly. So very slowly! But progress is progress and I can't complain! 

The particular folks we have been teaching don't have any particularly great stand out moments that are popping into my head. But they are doing well. Haha, for the most part. On Wednesday, we did exchanges with one of our district leaders and his comp. I went with the district leader. Elder Wu stayed and worked in our area with the district leader's comp. They found a new investigator and gave her a baptismal date! We went back on Saturday where she promptly dropped us. That was a bit of a bummer. We will hopefully get her back. Just has some things to take care of first. She was a little taken off guard and didn't know what to do. But, she lives with an active family, so.....nowhere to hide. Ha, we sound more like assassins. Slaying souls with the word of God. In a good way. Jacob 2:8 style of course. 

But I am running short on time! Bilis!!! Ok. So interesting scriptures for the week. Alma 4:10&11. Sometimes the examples of the members can be great. But sometimes, it can be just the opposite. We've had members and missionaries that have had a negative influence on the people. I would pray that we evaluate ourselves and be sure not to be those people. Makes the work of salvation really difficult when we are out turning folks away from the church. 3 Nephi 17:7-9. Had some interesting thoughts and insights on healing. Physically and spiritually. But I'm not going to tell you about them! First on account of lack of time, second on account of study it and get impressions for yourself! The Holy Ghost is a wonderful teacher. Sorry that's not super helpful or very spiritually uplifting. But hopefully you will study those things and end up having good spiritual insights anyway. 

Pics! We had a man work with us that liked my camera. So he snagged some pics of me and the Wu man while we worked. I chat with a LOT of kids! Love em. And we played volleyball too. Some of my cool mates here in Montalbon. Burgos and Ampid. Whatevs. See em all all the time. And we went to the zoo today. Good time. I have an awesome zone. Good times indeed. Held a turtle. And some other stuff. So fun. But too many pictures. And don't worry! Immediately following the zoo, I got a haircut. I do look like a missionary again. 

Anyway, that's all for this week. We have got to be bouncing!! Love you all! Have a good week!!

Much love, 

Elder Christensen
