A very busy week!

2 weeks almost no work and training ulit (again).

That one sentence pretty much sums up this last week and this coming week ha-ha. 
Last Monday- Butchered a pig (Katay sa Tagalog). Received a phone call from President. President said he wants me to train again and had me promise to be perfectly obedient and give my trainee the best experience of his mission in his first 3 months. I told President I will do that. 
Last Tuesday- A good full day of work. Got a lot of good stuff done.
Last Wednesday- Had district meeting. Elder Kikel is training as well but because they had their phone stolen he didn't know until district meeting when we told him. Not that big of a deal other then after district meeting we had to leave to San Pablo (6 hour ride) and stay over night for trainer's training meeting the next day.
Last Thursday- Elder Kikel and I were companions for the 2 days leaving our actual companions back at home (they had a party...). We had a great workshop by President for the new trainers. Elder Kikel left his bag with all of his toiletries in San Pablo. Sucks to suck! We went to a mall on our trip back home and celebrated with Pizza Hut (Way fancier here then back home). 
Last Friday- Worked but got punted from all of our appointments so we just visited members and taught them lessons because of the up coming transfer day.
Last Saturday- We had a ward baptism planned (I don't know how we ended up in charge of it). The little girl that was supposed to be baptized chickened out because we had to do it in the ocean I think (the water is way too dirty in our chapel). We rescheduled her to be baptized on the 18 with one of our investigators - Zion.
Last Night- Worked again but mainly visiting and teaching members for my companion.
Today- P-day! We will get some work done later tonight.
Tomorrow- Fiesta here in Lopez. Tons of people, alcohol, and karaoke. Should be a party. It also means we can't really get much work done.
This Wednesday-  Zone training meeting. We leave for San Pablo to stay over night for transfers the next day.
This Thursday- I get to meet my new companion.
This Friday- Work and introduce my new companion to the ward.
This Saturday- General Conference
This Sunday- General Conference (My new companion, if American will have seen Conference already once ha-ha (10 hours of conference, 14 hours on a plane, 10 hours of conference again ha-ha).
Well this is what things look like for me, out here, in the mission. I am super excited to get to train again. It was super fun to get to mold a new missionary last transfer and I get to do it again. 
I can't wait to see how big Max and Beckett are when I get back. Tell Max and Beckett I will try to send them a letter next week. Please remind me to get it done. Also tell them that if they are good and help their mom and dad out a lot I will help them build a fort when I get back home. But only if they are good and aren't being bad ha-ha.
Well I love you all a ton. I really hope everything goes great and according to plan back at home ha-ha. Well, the work is still progressing and I am still alive and doing just fine.

Sort of like branding at the Hall's house - sort of???!!!
 The least horrible of the many pig butchering photos. Yup - that's Erik holding it. Of course!
 Hmmmm. Not sure what this is. Looks like chocolate pudding. Let's hope it is.
A family we are teaching.
Some horsing around with the kids. They love me!!
 The Zone Leaders with Elder Kikel, his companion, Elder Daranciang, and myself.
 A parade marching right in front of our house! 
 Some tiny ward members??? Just a guess.
A feast!!
