The Longer Ones

Wednesday, December 5, 2018


Personally I think life is good. I feel very happy and Elder Lewis and I are sowing more for next transfer on whoever will be here. In fairness this week, I have little to nothing to say. it has been a fairly average week. Zone interview was inspiring as always, and Elder Cook has taught us a more loving way to teach Lesson 3 and we are experimenting every day to teach it with the same power as he did last wednesday. 

As a companionship we are getting a little tired of each other but we are working nonetheless and laughing way too much. Like I don't know how to explain this. I am a fairly happy elder. Elder Lewis is a very happy Elder. and we complement each others happiness. We need to be separated because we are laughing too much. Like we slept at 11:30 last night because even though were already in bed by 10:30. We just kept laughing. and saying jokes. I mean it's nice. But quite frankly my cheeks are hurting a lot from the laughter and joy we experience everyday and I am afraid that after one more transfer of this we will both look like we had botox injected in our cheeks from the happiness we are experiencing. It's a happy problem to have. 

Fun stories. 

The Title of this post is inspired by my zone leader yelling at weekly numbers.

This happened yesterday at church. #fastestbaptismofmylife
"Hey John Carlo what's up?" -E. Villanueva
"I'm doing good, this is my friend Eric" -John Carlo
"That's so dope, how old is he?" -E. Villanueva
"12yrs old! he's actually been going to church for a while! and he loves missionaries" -John Carlo
"Oh that's sweet! is it okay if we come over and teach you sometime Eric?" -E. Villanueva
"yeah sure! can you teach John Carlo too! because he's not baptized" -Eric
"Wait what!?!?! John Carlo!! you've been going to church for like months!!! are your parents baptized?" -E. Villanueva
"nope" -John Carlo
"who brings you to church, you're like 10 years old!" -E. Villanueva
"I like it here. it feels special. And I love primary. So I always go to church." -John Carlo
"What the flip alright we'll teach you tomorrow is that okay?" -E. Villanueva
"yeah but we live 3 km away if that's fine?" -Eric
"Are you telling me you've been walking 3km every sunday to go to church for the last few months and you haven't been baptized?" -E. Villanueva
"yeah." -John Carlo
"is it okay if we baptize both of you?" -E. Villanueva
"yeah I'd like that" -John Carlo

Thanks God. I love God. God is so great. He's a real one. That's my spiritual thought of the day. God is a real one. He's dope. 10/10 great guy. I encourage you missionaries to use that during a lesson. it surprisingly works. 

In other news. We subconsciously convinced an entire ward to DAB during a christmas party. Yes that's DAB. we had a party extravaganza for one of our housemates. I am learning how to play the ukulele. we will have 3 baptisms next week and an upcoming 9 within the next 3 weeks. I recently rebinded my PMG to look dope. it now looks dope. Stay tuned next week for thanksgiving shenanigans, binyaged na, at iba pa sa TV PATROL! (and many more in TV PATROL)
