Wen anak ko.

This monkey almost killed me. Ill tell you the story someday, but i thought i would just post the picture as a good memory.
No explanation.
Thats quality Filipino transportation right there. We only take the best buses...
Christmas Zone Conference. Thats our zone and candon zone combined.

Merry Christmas!

Thats what im talking about. Funky flavored tunafish on a pile of rice. Elder Thornton and I's favorite/specialty.
Elder T. and I were thinking about moving into this house. We couldnt get it approved though.
Beautiful!
Vigan City! These buildings go back to the days when the spanish ruled the philippines. There are some pretty cool sights to see here.
Its not christmas without the c-mas tree. Last night we put lights on our tree and plugged it in next to our beds to get the real spirit of christmas filling our home. We are pretty cool.

More from Badoc


Just posing on a bridge for a good scenic shot. I have no idea how to spell scenic.

E. McGee wanted me to get a snap of that as we were ridding in a jeep the other day. He is indeed a sexy rider.


Last zone leaders council.



Bro. Rudy Reyes. We were really excited for Rudy to get baptized and are just as excited as he will get the priesthood in a few weeks and begin strenthening the ward.




E. McKee and I on an exchange. This is who Elder McGee will be replacing as the assistant. E. McKee is opening a closed area and training for the last two transfers of his mission. Good guy. You might see him on USU hoops before i get back. He's a giant out here. They say im tall but the philippino kids run in horror when he walks around the corner. He is 6'7".

Heyoo

This is in the mission home at zone leaders council. That's elder mcgee on the right and his former companion on the left. Last transfer they had jumpsuits made and were wearing them when president came to their house for interviews. They are some pretty funny dudes. haha
Happy B-Day to me. Our celebration was pretty lame but memoral. I blew out candles a smashed cupcake that brittany sent me.
I was trying to show my unexpressable joy upon recieving so mush love and goodness. American food is a coveted thing amongst the forieng missionaries so i was everyone's best friend for a while there.
That is balot my friends. I made a failing attempt at swallowing that half developed duck egg. E. McGee loves balot. The taiste in reality is not that bad, but just looking at the thing makes me puke a little bit.
These are the kids and neighboors of one of our investigators, sister shirley. Cute little pinoys if i do say myself.

Goodbye Camalaniugan

This is the baptismal service the saturday before i got transfered. The two wee-boppers are just 8 year old member's kids. The picture below is of Brother Gonzaga. (He is the former gambling lord who has diabetes and we gave a bap date to on our first appt.)
Laquindanum Family. I got word that they have been interviewed and are going to be baptized this saturday the 18th. We worked with that family for a very long time. Almost my whole three transfers there. Too bad I wont be there for their big day.

Urubio family. If you can get past the fact sister is breastfeeding in the picture you will notice she looks to have been shedding some tears. That was tender good bye. Im in love with her kids. They got baptized the saturday after i left.
E. Liwanag and I posing before I headed out of Cagayan and onto Ilokos Norte.
