This will be a quick update since I have little time to email.
Hey Brothers and Sisters!
I have arrived in the Philippines, and have visited the MTC here and am officially in the mission field! Things are very different here. (Most) people are extremely nice, and the home cooked meals are very "masurap"! I am companions with a native Filipino who doesn't speak much English, which is a bit of a challenge but hopefully will help me learn Tagalog.
I wish I could attach pictures but I lost my SD card reader :/ Maybe I can show pictures next week.
Miss you all!
