No... time... uggggg.... March 2nd, 2014

March 2nd, 2014
Metro Manila: Pamplona District, Paranaque West East Zone
Just three things I have time for are:

1.     I think I want to be a religion teacher at BYU when I grow up. All I want to do is write about the church and learn about everything!
2.     Rose Caverte FINALLY said the prayer this week! She's a returning LA, and the wife of Bro Gabino. It's literally taken since I've been here to get this to happen. We gave her a blessing because she was sick earlier that day, and when we asked her to pray, like we usually do, she bowed her head and a heartfelt prayer came forth! It was awesome.
3.     The Ceran family came to church yesterday! Edwin is the nephew of our ward mission leader, and is always away from home when we teach his wife, Arlyn.

Have a great week!

Here are a few pics:
This is a very popular religion here. Directly translated, it means the earlier way, but, in a deeper Tagalog viewpoint, could mean the true way. It's very industrialized, as you can see by this picture!
This is halo-halo, which, translated, means a big mix. It has a lot of tasty things in it like ice cream and cookies, but at the same time corn and beans! Pretty delicious

A very friendly member family who feeds us good food.
