Rain, rain and more rain!!

Hello world.

So as you all may have seen it has been really rainy here because of the baguio that came through here. The rain here has been HORRENDOUS. I have never seen it so hard in my whole life. Its also a joy because the Philippines has no mountains which also means no drainage. That just translates to the flooding be REALLY BAD! The pics that I am sending are only like up to our calves on our legs. We continued walking and it almost got up to our waist (at least my waist haha). So yeah. We aren't actually allowed to walk in the floods but when there is no other way... You kind of have no choice. So yeah. That was an adventure as always. 

This week was really busy. We had interviews with President on Tuesday and then zone meeting on Wednesday. So that cut into the work a lot. That was a little rough. But it all went well and worked out. We went to lots of LA members this week. There are a few showing signs of wanting to come back. So in the coming weeks we will be kind of targeting them. This week was tough in terms of people coming to church. Last week our attendance was a whopping 149 this week it dropped to 98... So yeah I guess that's what happens when there is hard rain. The only investigator that came to church was Eugene Mae so that was a little rough. She seems to be doing good though! We taught WOW to her this past week and she said she has no problems so that's always a plus. We are hoping her for baptizing her on Mom's birthday which is this coming August 27! So we are doing all we can to make that happen. Also the Manuel family has been experiencing some tough things. All of the little kids keep coming down with fevers one after another. So they haven't been able to go and get heir marriage license yet. They said that this week they will make that happen. Hopefully Wednesday they can get that so we can move that forward. Other than that we are kind of refreshing the area in terms of people to teach. We have dropped a few and are hoping to go through the members to get some good investigators. We have lots of appointments with members this week in hopes that we can get some good referrals out of that. So we will see how that goes. 

Other than that nothing else really happened this week. I saw some members from my last area this week so that was a surprise :) Also got a pic with some random peeps on the road. I love you all! Have a good week! Especially to my pops who will be having a birthday on Wednesday! So you all better let him know about that. Love you dad!
