- Dallin John Christensen
- 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!)

My week wasn't that yellow either. Hope you all got the quote. I'm an old man out here, but I still got it.
This week has been awesome! A mini repeat of last week. Just less days. But we just found cool new investigators, had cool lessons, and things just worked out. For example. One of the cool investigators we found last week just lives a few streets away. So we went to visit. She wasn't home. Her husband was out front showering (a common occurrence here). He invited us right in, told us we'd just have to wait about 5 minutes for him to finish up. He has wonderful faith and we had a great lesson. He wants us to keep coming back. He came to church yesterday and stayed for the whole time. Wonderful family and we have high hopes for them!
We went and visited a lady that the elders used to teach. She dropped them about a year ago. Ready for baptism except for one thing. Needs to get married. We went over last night to talk to her. At the first, she wasn't very excited. But by the end, she agreed to get the papers taken care of for marriage and to allow us to teach her again. That is a temple sealing just waiting to happen.
We had some of our crazy difficult less actives come to church for the second week in a row.
We have another couple that has not been married agree to get working on papers this week.
It's just been a lot of exciting things. We are being extremely blessed right now and seeing the hand of the Lord in our work.
But that's all really. And I'm out of time! But before I go, pics!
Pics. The first is me at the neighbors house. The man is an incredible painter. Someone gave him a pamphlet and he liked it so much that he painted it on his front gate! Did a pretty good job too! The next is from when we went bowling today and one of the sisters got a turkey. Not even my own bowling I'm showing off, but it was just cool that someone got a turkey on the final frame! Then just me and the bowling crew. Eh, sorry. Not many pics this week. But, we didn't have much play time. Sorry, more next week!
That's all! Have a wonderful week over yonder! Take care!
Sorry! i am literally out of time! just got to attach some pics!~
OUr baptism went through!!! It was awesome! Some bonehead just forgot to bring his tie. Dumb! Pants, check, shirt, check, double underclothing, check. Go! No tie. Geez. And then a pic of me in a jeepney with the zone on the way back from zone conference. And....that's it. I'm so sorry! Way lame sauce. But it's been a miracle week with incredible work and blessings. And quick update. our miracle family from last week that just decided to come to church? They came again. And we taught them. And the sister says she knows the church is true just from the way she felt when she walked in. AHHH! Awesome! We'll see what happens there. Anyway. More to come on monday and....we'll review this week out of my journal when i come home. Sorry for the email. love you all! have a great week!
