Transfers This Week


Me on the right at the Zone Leaders Conference
I’m doing pretty good.  Transfers are this week and there are going to be a lot of changes in our zone so I’m working on that stuff right now. The zone is being overhauled this cycle, and my area is being split so I will be showing three elders around and figuring that out while juggling the rest of the zone. I’ll definitely get something good to write about out of transfers.

I moved again earlier this morning. Haha. That’s the fourth move between transfers I’ve made in the mission I think.

I guess Noah figured Boys State out better than I did. That’s my boy!  I haven’t seen Elder Allred since he came in last transfer but I have been trying to talk to him.  I will get to see him tomorrow though, and finally get a chance to say, "Hey, we are somehow distantly related through marriage. How’re you doing?"  It’ll be great. Elder Volpe is doing much better, I’ve actually seen him a bit this cy

cle.  He just wants a new companion because his comp right now it the trunkiest kid on the planet and still has a cycle to go.  He calls me dad. So yep…I am a mission parent.

Mahal ko kayo,

A Few More Questions


Here are some answers to recent questions:

When is the next Transfer Day?
Next Transfer Day is June 19th, I will be getting a new companion, and will be splitting the area once again. (like Ramon).

Who are you teaching?
We have a bunch of investigators but none that are progressing. We are doing our best.

What do you like about your new area?
The best thing about Baluarte is that it is close to the big city of Santiago but its far enough away that we are working in the fields and mountains and forest of the Philippines.  The fresh air with the convenience of the city.

Have you seen any interesting animals lately?
We have seen an unusually large number of smushed cats in the road lately.  That’s a strange animal.  And we found a crab in our bathroom. That was weird. No idea where that came from.

When are the Carlos’ leaving?  Are you prepared for that?
The Carlos's leave on July 1st.  But I think it will be fine. There isn’t much to worry about. I think the new president will be great in his own way. But as President Carlos pointed out in my last interview, President Rahlf will love me, but not like President Carlos loves me. Ha!  It’s true.
