December 2, 2014

How are you???
i am good, feeling a little bit stressed for this upcoming week with the GIANT BAGUIO(*typhoon)!!!! especially for my mga tudloan(*people being taught).. their houses are not the most stable!!!

Where are you???
I thought you all would know where i am by now........ i am in the PHILIPPINES about 20.5 hours away from you, or about 7426 miles(11498.4340000 Kilometers)........ and 13 hours ahead in the time zone.... ;P hahaha, wow, silly question!!!

Did you get transferred???
I did not get TRANSFERRED, i will be staying in Mandaue 1st ward until after Christmas, and my birthday!!! So, that means i have another 6 weeks here!!! SUPER EXCITED!!!!

Who is your Companion???
ELDER HEAD GIHAPON(*as well), he and i are just staying here in Mandaue together. super lucky, 

Do you actually unpack and repack every 6 weeks, just in case???
usually i do, but not just in case, i repack every 6 weeks because i want to make sure that everything still fits in my suitcases.... :P

How far ahead do you know you are transferring???
2 days, we find out on Tuesday if we are transferring, and then on Thursday we have transfers.

Did you get hit with the last typhoon???
Yes we did, but it was no where near as bad as over in Valencia zone, and it was just a lot of rain and what not... it was not too bad at all by the time it got to us.

Are you glad typhoon season is almost over???
It is almost like it is just getting started!!! So this Friday(Thursday for you guys) there will be a pretty big Typhoon that will hit our mission... It is going to do a lot of damage here. So if It would be very helpful if you could keep the Philippines in your prayers. I will update you on how everything goes.

How is the WORK???
It was way good this last week, we taught 28 lessons, (led the zone). the only thing that happens is that we teach.... then teach.... then teach... nothing really comes out of our teaching, or at least not yet!!! it is kinda frustrating at times... we can teach 50 lessons in a week and nothing will happen!!!

Uncle Durv wants to know what the craziest adventure you have had to date is???
i thought of one!!!! it is from last year (DECEMBER 14-16) right after the Christmas party we went up to BOGO to build houses, and i was in charge of my group, so i basically told them everything, the only thing that i struggled with was the language...

later today my anak(*son) has the same opportunity to do some panday(*building) we are going to go and strenghten some of the members houses, as well as some of our investigators houses.

"The scenario of strengthening Hagupit bringing life-threatening dangers to the Philippines remains a serious concern.
Hagupit strengthened into a typhoon early Tuesday night PHT (Tuesday morning EST) with maximum sustained winds of 130 kph (80 mph).
Conditions are prime for Hagupit to strengthen further, potentially approaching super typhoon intensity over the waters of the Philippine Sea later this week.
Prior to reaching the Philippine Sea, Hagupit will bear down on the island of Yap during the first part of Wednesday night (local time).
Residents of this island should prepare for torrential rain, damaging winds and dangerously rough surf. The weather will begin deteriorating Wednesday afternoon.

Beyond Yap, AccuWeather.com meteorologists have identified two scenarios for Hagupit. Both involve Hagupit becoming a powerful and dangerous typhoon. However, the Philippines will either have to brace for life-threatening impacts or will be spared depending on which track unfolds.
The first scenario would be a more westerly track, bringing the typhoon into the southern or central Philippines this weekend and in contact with a much more significant population."​

if you can see this, it shows that one of the potential things that can happen... well, if you look you can see that it might come and knock on our door step here in Cebu, especially here in Mandaue...

Anyone we can include in our prayers???
Just the ENTIRE Philippines!!!


  1. Sister Joana (our baptism a couple of weeks ago) moved..... she didn't tell us when or if she was moving, she just isn't here anymore....
