This week has been great! We had a service project at a members house this week. She is 96. She is also the piano player for the ward. She never married but the ward has adopted her as family. We went over to her house with our ward mission leader to visit her. She is like grandpa Hicks for sure. She fed us and told us stories. She told us that Makati used be a swamp area. Her name is Molina. We love her. She is still so good at the piano! So we visited her to see how things are going and also helped fix her house. She lives alone and she was so grateful we came to say hi. Things are still rolling along here in the work.

We are finding lots of people to teach but it's hard to find people that will progress. But they are out there. We have been working with John Lloyd and Jasper. Two brothers we have been teaching. Their parents don't live anywhere near and so they are kinda on their own. They have been reading the Book of Mormon and love the story about Nephi and they love the Book for it's adventures. They also love the way they feel when they read. Jasper is 18 and John Lloyd is 14. They will be great future missionaries! It's so fun to teach people that enjoy the gospel.
So funny expressions I am able to say are like, buhay pa rin... if somebody asks how you are doing and you say that, it kinda means, still alive. But it's just so funny to hear from the mouth of a forienger. hmmm what else. Halika kain tayo. Come, lets eat... haha it's another funny one. There are soo many. oh ya another. If you trip you can say, parehos kaliwa ang paa ko, meaning, oh dang I have two left feet.
Yeah so in that pic last week, I was in the other room and I heard my companion wake up because everything fell off his face haha. He laughed, he thought it was so funny. He is so great.
Spencer is famous in the apartment... his pictures of him at the Hawaii temple are so cute that everyone just wants to stare at his cute smile haha.
Amy is doing well. But her parents told her she is not allowed to join our church... but she is an adult... so that's awkward. The zone leaders area is so different from mine. Last week I went on splitz with them and holy cow. Their area has 69,000 people living in it and it's about the size of skyline high school (soccer field too). People are just on top of each other... It's truly indescribable. For district activity today... I'm taking all the Sisters Bowling haha. Good idea huh? I can't wait. That will be later today.
