Pretty Routine Week in the 'Pines


Glad you're enjoying the emails haha, we're enjoying the good things that are happening here.  Sounds like y'all had one of those be everywhere do everything week's eh?  I guess it doesn't kill to have one of those every once in a while.  Breaks up the normal routine :)  Speaking of routines we had a pretty routine week.  Nothing too overly exciting to write about.... Then again maybe I'm just tired from going straight from Basketball to Bowling to the Computer.  Had a pretty eventful P-day as always :)
'Here's one for you, Ashlyn!'

Here's the Sister G E update for the week haha.  Her sister was the first to bear her testimony and she talked about how happy she was to have her family together at church and how meeting the missionaries was an answer to a prayer.  Then Sister G E was the last to bear testimony and she bore her testimony that she knows that the church is true and that 2 Nephi 31:20 about enduring to the end is her favorite scripture.  Turns out all the members thought she was already a member haha.  They were all pretty surprised when she said she hadn't been baptized yet.  We were able to teach a good lesson to her husband last night too.  We usually catch him once every other week because he has work every day but Saturday.  He's SUPER shy and was raised Catholic so he hasn't completely embraced our teachings yet.  He's super kind and open to us though.  We talked to him about real intent and acting on our Faith in Christ and promised that his family would be together forever if they came together in this church.  He said he would try and switch his off day from Saturday to Sunday and that he'll try to come to church sometime in February.  It was cool and I felt the Spirit.  I'm excited for them as always :)

Kylee having fun as Mrs. Meers

Sister G is doing pretty good as well and is just about ready for her baptism on Feb. 23.  As far as writing them letters that would be cool haha.  There's not really a good postal system here or even good address system so it would be best if you sent the letter to me and then I would send it to them through other missionaries if I'm not still in this area.

Actually kinda jealous of your snow... Back home having Bi-polar Utah weather got kind of annoying but having the same exact weather every single day here kinda gets boring haha.  Between 85 and 90 with the sun shining every single day might not sound all that bad but it gets old.  Enjoy the snow :)

Mrs. Meers-Thoroughly Modern Millie

Hahaha!  Kylee looks like she did GREAT with her play.  Looks like she had a pretty important part too eh?  Looks like she's growing up too.  Pretty surprised to hear that Noah Giles is that old and doing Jr. High plays too.  I've always thought of him as Kylee's little Daycare friend haha :) (They were in Joy School together.) Way to go Ky!! :D  You always have been a great villain  ;)

Sad to hear Hunter had a rough week with sports.  That sure doesn't happen often.  Tell him not to let it get him down and go kick PWET next week :)

Aww man!  Sad to hear the 9ers didn't quite make it.  Sounds like a pretty exciting game.  Again, can't wait to get back and be there with y'all next year it shall be a blast.

Well... Hope ya have a GREAT week.  We'll do our best to have another good one here too.  Also.... You need to watch Groundhog Day with Bill Murray in it for me.  I was hoping we would have a huge Groundhog Day celebration here but it didn't end up happening haha.

Love ya!  Have a great week!

Jeepney's are a main way of transportation in the Philippines

Not too many exciting pics this week.  Just a neighbor's dog for Ashlyn.... and a jeepney with Abinadi painted on the side of it.... WOOT!  It's the bomb but the driver is a member that is presently going apostate... whoops haha.
Love ya!
