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!)

2014/01/20 "He took my name and number and said he'd call me..."

Hey there everyone! Guess what? It's been another good week on this end! Weird how that goes, eh? Every week is a good week! 

But the reason for the subject line. This week, we did have some trouble getting into lessons because we didn't have any men working with us. Which meant extra time walking around outside looking for new people to teach. We walked past these kids and decided to talk to them. Adorable little kids. Wished them well and went on our way. Passed them again the next day, since we had extra time to find people, and they called us over. They said, "Hey, mom said we are going to come to your church on Sunday". WHAT?! Joke lang yan diba? We have people we teach promise to come to church and then they don't come. We have a woman we've never even met yet that wants to come? Awesome! So we decided to meet her and introduce ourselves. The news was correct, she DID want to come to church. And then she did! She came with all the kids! The members were awesome and took good care of her so we haven't even had all that much time to talk to her. But we have an appointment set to go and teach. She is awesome! So it was another miracle for us this week! It was just one of those, "It's him!" moments. Good times. 

Sister Fonacier is also doing just awesome. She and her daughter will be baptized on Saturday. WOOHOO! And it's a triple because the other elders have a sister being baptized too. One of the investigators I was teaching before the area split. So it's an exciting day! The work is rolling along!

Also side note; we had mail run this week. I got letters and packages from people from the ward in Michigan. Some silly dumb elder didn't write their names down, but it was awesome. Don't know if you know who sent them, but if you do, please thank them. I appreciated it! 

Weather has been beautiful. It's felt like spring time all week. We've been chatting up all manner of people, finding referrals, tracting, OYMing, all manner of good stuff! It's been a good week! Absolutely nothing to complain about! 

We sent out an Elder from our ward this week. Elder Santos. Good man. I'll include pics later. 

Other than that, the only news is that Elder Hendrickson and I threw down a mean lunch yesterday. It was so good I have to brag! I'll include pics. And I'll cook it again for all y'all. But it was awesome. 

Sorry. A little short on interesting news. You know when a man gets talking about weather and lunch that he must be coming up short on stuff to say. Sorry! 

Pics. The first is our leaving missionary. Good man. Worked with us a ton. We'll miss him. The second is just a picture of my area. Because it's beautiful. Then just some pictures from an awesome hike we went on today. Man. We live in a beautiful place. Enjoy! Sorry, no pics of lunch. Didn't fit. Oh well!

That's all though for the week. Take care over there and have a great week! Thanks for your support and prayers!

Much love, 

Elder Christensen
