August 24, 2012

This week was pretty busy as always! Lots of meetings, companion got sick, etc etc. However, we still did quite a bit in time we did have. I saw a man the other day that had 14 toes and 12 fingers. I was trying my hardest not to stare, but it was a bit hard not to. I think I've found that i'm a bit allergic to the shell fish down here. I had no problem with them back home, but maybe there's something different with them here. I got a letter from Art this week! Thanks buddy! I'm sending out a reply today. I'd also like to say rest in peace to Shaun Summa... Crazy how fragile life is. I love you guys. Write me and all that other good stuff! Well anyways, I'm out! Have a good week!

August 19, 2012

This week was nice and busy as always. Lots of work, lots of meetings, and lots of rain. One typhoon left this week and another big one is on the way. I prefer it when it's raining though. It's much cooler outside when it's raining. When it isn't, it's super humid and hot. It was pretty cool the other day, I saw this one guy that had a pet crocodile. I wish I had had my camera with me, unfortunately, I did not. It's been amazing helping people out over here with this weather. It's harder to get to places, but there is plenty to do since a lot of people's houses here get flooded. Plenty to help out with. I think I've figured out what has been causing my rashes. It's fruit. If it's bananas I have no problem, but all other fruit gives me a weird feeling in my mouth. So, looks like no more fruit for me till I get home. Anyways, besides getting soaked a lot, I'm doing great. Healthy and happy and all that other good stuff. Have a good week my friends and family! Love you guys!

This week was way busy. More meetings and things along those lines than anything else. I have a new companion now named Elder Dela Cruz. He's cool! I've got to rehem my shirts again. They're getting way big again. It still has been raining a lot, which is nice because it's cooler out, but kinda sucks because we have to walk around in calf deep water a lot. However, I prefer the rain than to the hot humid sun! I walked into one of my appointments the other day and low and behold they were watching Lock/Jaw Death To Hipsters music video. They liked it a lot actually which was pretty cool. Brought back some great memories to see that as well. Anyways, I miss you guys. Write me, send me pictures, and love given will be returned. Have a good week!

Summer Photos - 2012.08.06

It is photo time again catching up on several weeks of photos from Nate dating back to the end of June.

August 7, 2012

Alright, not much to say this week except that it was busy and I'm pretty exhausted! I went bowling today, that was pretty interesting. I totally sucked because I haven't played it now since almost a year ago. Some interesting pictures. If you notice one of them I make my face look fat. I do that a lot to the kids here. They love it. The storms are still continuing. Nice and heavy, lots of flooded areas.  Gotta say it's kinda fun! This week I got a package from Aunt Joy (man I forgot how good peanut butter and chocolate are together and was reminded of how heavy American food is), a letter from Shannon, a letter from Ryan (all 3  of your letters will hopefully be sent out soon today. If not sometime next week.) I've realized how much I do not want to get in a leadership position on the mission this week. So much to do it cuts in the time of everything else we need to do. Not to mention having to deal with everyone's drama has to get annoying. I'm starting to have some problems with rashes on my face again. I'll be getting medicine today to fix it. The other day I had a dream that when I woke up I thought, "Wow that was lame".  Basically, I dreamed that I was just eating pizza, watching tv, and hanging out with everyone. Kinda weird to dream about stuff I did normally before I left and will do again when I come home.  Anyways, keep writing for those that have written.  For those that haven't, GET ON IT.  Love you guys!  Have a good week!
