I love being on a mission!

Our car battery died this week, so anytime we have to go anywhere we have to flag somebody down and convince them to jump our car so we can drive to our next destination. I'm not sure what they think when this American flags them down but we have met some cool people. The Area office should be giving us a car to use while our car is sickly. It's Zone Conference this week.
I'm top row 3rd in from the right

Zone Conference was great! It was really powerful to hear from President Ostler and we all really love him. We are starting to work on setting higher goals as a mission, things are going really well but we are looking to stretch. It was fun to see my trainer and some of my old companions.

Elder Monson is working at training Elder Webster as the new financial secretary, Elder Webster is from Brigham City, he is picking up his new calling super quick, he will do great!  He is to my left in the below pic.

We have 8 missionaries in the ward, they are all super cool! Our Bishop is the man, he has only been a member for 5 years, he is super solid, we had chicken curry and homemade cheese (they love that flavor here) and coconut icecream. Good times with the Makati 2nd! 

Ed came to church and is really settling into the choir. Things are going great! Our Elders quorum lesson was on the temple and Ed really enjoyed learning about that for the first time. We hadn't taught him too much about it yet so it was really nice to have it explained to him in a classroom for an hour.

We met the Paublo family this week! They are super cool. We didn't know if they were the real deal or not until we sat down to teach another lesson and we could tell that they had read the Book of Mormon, the spirit was really there. They have had a hard time feeling like they were children of God because of how poor they are, they didn't think Heavenly Father could be the Father of a situation like that. And as 2 Americans we just cannot say we know where they are coming from. But we promised them if they read the Book of Mormon, they would feel they are children of God, and their hardships would lessen, and they would be happy. They read, and they felt it. They will be coming to church this Sunday. There is like 12 of them. 
Sis. Tigno who served in my home ward in SLC, who is from the Philippines tracked me down at the cafeteria.

The new Elders in the apartment are super cool, Elder Tui and Elder Tanner. It's been super fun! It's been another powerful week and I love being on a mission. 

Love, Elder Roberts
