The language is at the point where I can say funny local expressions and things like that. Which is always super funny. They love seeing some random American say things like a Native. (I wish Luke would have given me some examples, I'll ask next week).
|So many "pusa's"|
This week my companion felt like we should stop at a house where we had talked to this lady. We had tried there before but nobody was home. So we went back again. This time their whole family was there and we taught a great lesson. They are extremely involved in their Catholic church, no worries. If they read the Book of Mormon and pray, nothing else will matter.
Fred is still Fred, really excited for his baptism. His wife isn't interested... Yet. She is a jeepnie driver, and she is almost 70. Very hard working. Fred really wants her and his family to join so we will keep inviting and trying to get them on board.
If you are just in the suburbs here, people can drive around on tricycles. They just drive around and you can pay to get a ride. So my companion and I play this game. I ask how much it is to get somewhere and they say something like 50 pesos, then we walk around for a minute then try a different tricycle in the same area but this time HE asks. It's always cheaper at least 20 pesos for him. The only difference is that I ask how much, or he asks how much. Haha. I love my companion, he is so funny. He's also a very sound sleeper so sometimes when we are studying and he ends up asleep, I see how many things I can pile on him before he notices.
|My companion is such a deep sleeper.|
I also get to help lots of Recent Converts work on their family history here! Which is so fun and I love to do family history. There is always a special spirit. I'm glad I was able to do it a little before my mission so I can help people here. Yes... My small little chapel is in the middle of the richest of the richest business buildings haha. They are huge!! Look it up on line. It's the Buendia Chapel. Life is great here. I really love it. We have a new Sister in the District from Transfers, she Filipina.
|We're here with our ward mission leader by me and the girl on the left is a ward missionary, great people!|
