September 13

 Here is a chicken I am plucking so we can eat We killed it too.

These are pictures of the dump site in our area. We have many investigators living here, and many people make their  living, sorting and going through trash. It stinks, and is hard to see. All the kids are always super super dirty, and one of our families lost two kids because they breathed in some stuff from a garbage that was poisonous.

So this picture says "polihog ayaw giihi diri" which translated straight to English means "please don't pee here" So just for laughs, i pretended to, but its not actually real, but i thought it was sort of funny.

This is the Mission home.  It is so beautiful.  

Me and Elder Foote, Elder Grey, President Tanner

Oh and guess what, I ate balute and videoed it but the video cant be sent home, so here is a picture. It is actually alright with taste and all, its just super gross looking that's for sure!!! The tiny little chick was inside and i pulled it out, it was so nasty!!

These kids live in the junk yard, they just finished showering in the rain and put on clean clothes! They look so terrible though, so dirty, matted grubby hair, its really sad to see! I love them so much for it though!! It doesn't even bother me as much anymore when they touch me, they are filthy but I can't see the Savior stuffing up his nose at them and I don't want to anyway, even if it means a bit of dirt to deal with. hahaha

My area is usually under water when it rains, all the water drains over this highway down into my area.  It was funny to watch people get splashed by the water and they usually saw it coming!  They didn't even try and dodge, lol

It is way hot in the city, but its hot everywhere, just less shade sometimes. Its rainy season right now so it is definately cooler, in the summer season here and it is crazy hot, but that is over now so no worries about that. 
So this is the city from the sky, and that is SM mall, it sorta seems out of place no?

Here are more baptism pictures. HIs name is Kim Gallo. 

We went to the zoo!

Could these kids be any cuter?  

We got to go to the temple!!!!

This is called a Hau, but in English a constrictor lizard or something like that. When they bite, they get lock jaw and wont let go. They are super fast.  I actually ate some of him.....hahahah

This is the craziest man I know.  He is a less active that we reactivated....and he is something else. He was so funny though. He was talking about how he served a mission. We asked where did you serve. He goes, I served in Negros. We asked again, how long? 8 years was his reply, and so we asked him what his mission presidents name was and he forgot. He also said he is serving a senior mission, right now. He wants to build a temple on his land as well. He is pretty funny.

These are some pictures of my farewell in Calape.  We had these jerseys made so we decided to pose with them on.  They say Pilicans.  That's a mash up of Philippines and Canada.  This family got up at 3:45 in the morning to meet me outside my house and say goodbye.  As the bus came up, we were getting on and everyone was crying, they actually started to cry as we saw the bus coming. I got on, found a window seat and waved to them as I left. I then boarded the bought in tubigon and went to Cebu! It was not easy to say bye to all of these people!!!!!
