OK, neither of our boys seem to like change....

The week was seriously terrible and guess what I'm transferring again.  What the heck, the thing is dumb because me and my comp are both leaving so all the work we have been doing went nowhere because the new missionaries don't know who we have been teaching and yeah I'm just way mad.  I don't know what to think because we just had 3 baptisms.   I would of been fine to just leave and have my comp stay but we're both leaving so i don't know so i feel like I'm just leaving all my investigators in the dust, and i feel that like all them will just go less active because they are just left there and nobody will help them out.  Anyway I'm just way freaking out because of all our investigators.

My comp is good but he is mad too, this is his last transfer.

By the way, in the Philippines we can take naps like from 1 to 2 because that's siesta time and if we went out to work at that time nobody will let us in because they are sleeping or they are eating so don't worry about that.
Sorry, I am upset but I love the people here and then yesterday we just planned for this mission fireside thing and it was going to be great.  Talk to you next week.
love you elder heywood

Hello Momma Bear and Family,

Let me know what mission it is, (Pres. Peterson's) my guess is it is the Angeles mission in Luzon close to Manila, tell him I said hello.

So funny story we have this kid that lives in our 5 apartment complex with us, he lives next door and he is 4,  His name is Alex, The Spawn of Satan really like the Omen...oh my gosh .  So me and my comp are taking a nap and we hear something in the bathroom,  I wake up to go see who it is and its ALEX clogging our toilet with toilet paper and I'm like what the heck still kinda waking up and then he yells at me and runs to me, punches me in the manhood. and then runs out of the apartment.

That's it for today, folks...

love elder

love you fam

I'm not going to lie, I did miss waking up to chocolate but whatever. Gosh I'm having the best time out here.  Having a good comp is so so so so so nice.  Everyday is not just a day its another day to try our best to bring people closer to our Savior and if we at least talk to one person we are accomplishing our goal.

ok answers to questions:

I say my prayers in Illongo its actually pretty weird but whatever its going to be tough to speak english when I get back.  Actually there is a lot of English in this country but still i can speak English fine but when I do my mind goes blank sometimes and I cant think of a word to save my life haha.

I have the coast in my area just like my last area where I got the sunset pictures; I will take more pictures.

It's sad to see kids here in the Philis; there are these homeless kids that walk around with these different size pieces of PVC pipe all bunched together it looks like a blue man group instrument and they are freaking talented but so sad because that is their living to just play for people and if they make money that day they get food and if they don't they don't.  So tell Chris to don't ever whine, seriously. Sounds like a great week kinda crazy with all the travel you did but sounds good. We had our mission tour this week so one of the 70's came to our mission to tour it and then we went to a conference that was great. This mission is the best ever and these people are the best ever. How is grandma doing? Tell Luke to email me I have some questions? who is Luke's dance partner? is she cute? Tell Dana to use her talents to help others so everyone can learn from the dancing thing.

We had a baptism this last week, it was way sweet!  This girl has 2 kids and her husband was already a member, oh my her baby is 6 months she is the cutest baby ever.  Don't tell anyone I said that.

That is it for this week.  Sorry the good stories will have to wait till we talk in person.

love you all

Questions & Answers:

Describe your new living conditions?

So our living conditions are good, just me and Elder Fordham. We have a half size refrigerator and running water but we have a filter hooked up to our faucet. We have only two electric fans and two desks and thatis it. Our bathroom is as big as my shower back home but it also has a sink in the shower, a little weird but whatever, I like it. The water is freakin freezing here though so it feels good when your sweating but when you wake up, oh man, you sure wake up.

Are you eating more healthy food then you did here? Mangoes? Have you gained weight or lost weight?

We eat a lot of tuna, ramen and rice, rice, rice, rice and corned beef and cereal but we don't have fresh milk. We have powder for milk. We eat a lot of bread with just the phili peanut butter on the bread. Oh yeah, we eat a ton of pinapple, oh gosh the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is not mango season yet.

What is the leadership in your ward like?
The ward is good, we have 100 attending. Our Bishop tries hard but he doesn't entirely know what to do but that is why we are here to help and that is fine at least he is trying.

Who are you teaching right now?

Our baptism pool is kinda weak right now, so we went tracting for two straight days and found 36 people. We were way stoked of course, not all those people are elect but as long as we try our best and try to help them closer to Christ we did our job. We will see what happens.

Do you wish you could play the piano?

Yes, I wish I could play the piano. Seriously I'm mad at myself for not even trying and not trying hard enough on the guitar. Well I got to go to FHE, sorry this is short.
Tell everyone that big boy loves them and I will write back next week. Goodbye my loveeeeeeee!!!
