Walk and Walk and Walk and Walk

The Legos are ok.  We were burning cockroaches and I decided to put the Legos in front of the flames and take pictures.  This week has been rough.  We walked our entire area, which is the size of our stake maybe a little bigger, and we taught hardly any lessons.  Everyone just told us to come back later.  My legs were so tired.  I would come home and sit in my chair and not move.  

We have one investigator who is suppose to be baptized this week, but we don't know if we will be able to get him a baptism interview in time.  He is way cool.  His cousins are way active, three of them just got back from their missions.  He will have a really good support system.  We are planning on taking him to the temple tour this Saturday, that will be good to show him what we want him to work towards.

I don't know if I told you or if you remember, but we are teaching a less active, Brother Art, he has been less active for almost 30 years.  He had a lot of Word of Wisdom issues.  This week he stopped and he is doing good.  We invited him to go to the temple on Saturday too.  I think that will really help him stay away from drinking and smoking.

So thats been my week here in the Philippines.

We have a few set dinner appointments, but most of the time it is whenever.  Sundays: we go to church at 9, we study and eat lunch (except Fast Sunday's), we go out to work until 9, go home and sleep.  Sundays can either be our busiest day or our lest productive day, it just depends.

Where is Derek at with his papers?

Every one keep working hard and having fun.  I love you all.
