Last Saturday I got in
to have my TB test done. They pressed me to a mat and shot X-rays at me. The
funny thing about it is that it cost me $3! I am a little worried about
possible cancer coming from being shot with third world x-rays (jokes). Last
Monday I got the result. After looking at my bones I found the place that told
me that I have Tuberculosis. Time to start the giant pills! My comp had to
get his foot checked at the doctors so we spent a good 2 hours there.
(Next email a few
minutes later…. “Ai one last thing! The TB test was negative. That’s all folks!”
He got email scolded for that one. His mother didn’t think it was funny!)
We talked with a lady
who believes in Korean Jesus. She wants us to meet with her church leaders to
discuss what true doctrine is. Like that's going to happen! I hate debating and
no matter how many people tell you that it will just be a simple discussion...
yeah no, it is not.
A guy told me to go away
yesterday and as he left he shouted, "stupid!" That was the first
time in my whole mission that anyone has called me stupid. Usually we get the
Cebuano equivalent of some English swear words but not the English! We shouted
thanks and walked away.
I went to my bishop’s
house for the first time in about a year and a half. I have been in branches since
then XD. He gave us Dunkin Donuts and for some reason I have just been having a
serious craving for donuts! The KrispyKreams, Dunkin' Donuts, etc. are American
priced here - about 600 pesos for a dozen. CANT AFFORD THAT! So I just stick
with the Filipino off brands like HappyHaus and Mr. Doughnut. 10 pesos for one…
We did have an
investigators activity at our church last Saturday. We got a lot of our gators
to the church and had a fireside with them. We had about 4 from my area and
maybe 4-5 from the sister’s area. It turned out well. We had tons of soda left
over so hooray for free soda!
We went on splits
yesterday. Yeah... that has pretty much been my week. Rico made it to church
again:) We have a handful of people scheduled for baptism here in a few weeks
and months! Oh and transfers next week! I admit that I requested to President
for my last area because this next adventure might very well be my.... LAST!:,(
I hope to go back to Escelante Zone, my training zone. I have some of my fondest
memories from that place and I hope to die off there.) But any who we shall
find out next week or maybe even today because the new A.P. gets assigned
today. You never know!
Well this is me. I don't
think there is anything else to say but that I hope that you all are doing
good! Take care!
