Elder Head in the Philippines - #phoneprobs :)

Hey Mom and Pop!

So funny thing happened this week. So here in the Philippines, the church has an account with a cell phone company with all of the numbers of the missionaries on one shared account, so it's all kind of just grouped together with all the numbers that the missions have access to. When I work with the phones of missionaries here I see a lot of random problems that need solutions in diverse ways. To fix those problems, I use my phone. Well, just yesterday my phone stopped working. Completely stopped. It said that my SIM can no longer be read. So I called the phone company and inquired about it. They said that my number has been activated via email to a new SIM card. YEP. Meaning that another mission may or may not have accidentally hijacked my phone number from me. Which makes it REALLY hard to do the phones in the mission when I no longer have a cell phone.

Anywho, This week we had a few meetings and got the rental checks sent out for this first quarter of the year. Thank goodness.

We did a lot of finding this week and have found three different families that we hope to start teaching this week.

I got my October package! Finally! Whoo! Thanks so much. :)

Love ya!

Elder Head in the Philippines - Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

As we started coming up towards the new year, I saw it as a time for reflection. To see where I have improved and where I must keep improving. One area that needs improvement is in my goal-setting, being that I can't seem to remember my goal from last year..

So I'm hoping that will change this year. Haha.

A few days before New Years, we were given deep fried pork leg to eat from some members, and naturally, I chose to play with the pig foot afterwards. Haha.

We were able to watch one Disney movie as a zone for New Years because the streets aren't really super safe for us at New Years, so we watched the Good Dinosaur. A cool part of that movie for me was when the dad said to his son, "If you can find the river, you can find your way home" and as a missionary I found a spiritual connotation for that in a sense, that if we can find the Living Water, we can find our way home. If we don't find the Living Water, we don't have hope. May each of us search deeper for the river that leads back to home this year. I testify that Christ is that river that can take us home. There is no other way there, but through Him.

Happy New Year!
