So hello mom:) Kamusta po kayo? Ako, nakakraos naman pero ok lang. So ngayon nagslaita ok tungkol sa week ko. Ok lang na ito pero si ****, poor po siya at hindi magsima po siya week na dito. Ha English now! So this week has been a pretty normal week. With ****, he is very poor and has diabetes so he needs to take 2 pills with every meal, well his support (from the gov) didn’t come that week and we didn’t know this. For Sunday he wasn’t there and we were like c’mon man! So the next day we went to his shack and I guess because he didn’t have money, he didn't have food, and because he didn’t have food, he couldn’t take his pills. He didn’t eat or take his pills for 3 days and he woke up on Sunday and couldn’t feel his legs so that why he didn’t come, he said he tried to text us for food or money but he didn’t have load (the way they text here) so he was stuck in his house in the forest and couldn’t move. Eventually he got some feeling and asked a neighbor nearby to give him some food. So ya that’s him. He is still getting baptized this Dec 26 and the transfer is Dec 15 so I’m really hoping I don’t get transferred because I want to baptize him! He’s doing ok now, his b-day is tomorrow and were giving him a small b-day party. Other than him, we have no-one close to baptism. Every day we get yelled at by catholic priests and it’s so hard to find new investigators. But its ok:) it’s so fun to see what people do when they see us. They run to their house and then don’t answer the door and we just laugh. That’s about it this week for me. Raining every day, gaining weight, sweating all day all night and eating new things every day. And my computer today isn’t reading my memory card but I’ll keep trying. Love ya:) thanks for the reports and all. xoxoxo
