I can't wait to try out Dad's new pizza oven Father's Day present! I just ate some great Pizza Hut earlier today haha. Actually, a member from Batangas just came back from Saudi Arabia and came and visited me and took us all out for lunch. I told him to add you on Facebook so he could send you the photo. His name is Romel. Great guy, he even brought me Galaxy Chocolate (soooooo good).
I am so sad that I have to miss a second Canada Day in a row. All you lucky cats are just going to party it up eating cotton candy all day as I slave away out here in the office! Have a fun day!
Tell Dad that he needs to fix his knee so we can play basketball when I get home. He needs to get it checked out! I loved your Royal Tyrrell Museum trip photos by the way haha. Aren't you just the best paleontologist in the whole world!
The first week of the transfer we are saying good bye to old trunky missionaries and saying hello to the new ones so we don't really leave to office except to go to San Pablo. We are super busy on weeks like that. The next 2 weeks we will be going to almost every zone in the mission to change water filters so we will be driving around probably 4 of the 7 days. That last 3 weeks are spent dealing with all of the problems that apartments have and trying to catch up on office work. We do a lot of driving and work outside the office. We almost never stay over night at other apartments unless we go to one of the islands (never been yet). We are still looking for a new apartment for the sisters. Speaking of sisters I saw Sister Rasmussen and her family. Right as soon as her mom read my name tag she says "Hey - I know your mom!". Haha you must have made a lot of good missionary mom friends haha. (When I heard they were going to pick up thier daughter, I actually messaged Sister Rasmussen and asked her to say hello to Erik for me! :))
Last night Elder Duduya and I had a pretty good lesson with 6 referrals. They could all potentially be baptized, so that would be really cool to get in the office. Its nice to get out and do a little missionary work after hours!
Well thanks for the email Mom - sorry that my emails have gotten crappier as my mission has gone on haha. These things are hardly blog-worthy. Oh well. Love you lots!
