Happy New Year!

Hello Family!

Well this week has been a good one Because I got to see you guys!! (well most of you!) 

So this last week has been super fun and different, definitely the hottest Christmas I have ever had in my life and also the most boring haha. But it was still way fun, we were able to go to some of our investigators for Christmas Dinner, and it was anything fancy, but It was good! They were all just sitting around watching us eat, (they had already eaten).  They  were talking to us and it was just way fun.
I mean I can't say much to them, (still learning the language) especially if it's about the gospel. ha. But they are all so nice and such a great family, they will actually be getting married in about two weeks!! It's going to be awesome! We are so excited for them.
Bro Jun the Head of the Household quit drinking and smoking in about 3-4 Days!! It was so awesome!! He's such an awesome guy, always talking with a huge smile on his face!! He'll be a great member!! We really love him and his family tons! 

Then the day after Christmas I was the one to teach our District meeting, it was about how Patience Brings Hope.
Ha, that's not Ironic at all, because I am not the most patient person in the world, so I just leaned a lot of things about the importance of having patience, and why Heavenly Father really wants us to have patience!! 
What Can I say, Patience is a Virtue! Ha. 

Then finally after the District Meeting I was able to get my Christmas Package from Dad!! It was awesome! Made me feel almost like I was just at home! It was this sweet Helicopter thing that is so fun! I know right, most other Missionaries get like candy and what not from their parents, me I get an AWESOME HELICOPTER haha. I love it! Whenever I have time, during lunch or after daily planning I'll fly it around in our house!! Its the best!! 

So yesterday was a fun day at Church. Our attendance was 144, not super high, But we had 13 Investigators!! That was awesome!! 
At the beginning of church they're like "We don't have a speaker!! Elder Conrow, give a talk!". Ha so that was fun! Went gave a talk off the spot in Tagolish... haha But it was funny... there was this one girl, and every time I would say something in Tagalog she would like, nod her head, like uh huh I understand you ha!

So every time I would look at her for assurance that what I was saying was right! haha It was funny! I don't think anyone understood, because no one really said anything after Sacrament. haha but I did my best!! I mean I only had like 2 minutes to think of what I was going to talk about!! haha

Then later I had to conduct the gospel essentials for the fist time so that was fun! And then my companion and I taught the Doctrine of Christ later in Primary, and that was way fun! and they all understood me, and were yelling answers back to my questions, and it made feel so good!! haha! 

So don't read this part mom, you might just want me to leave the Philippines! haha jk
So last night we were walking to appointment (it was dark) and you have to walk on the side of the highways because there are these booths set up everywhere so you just hug to them so you don't get hit, well there was this motorcycle driver who was passing so he was  coming up right where we were walking, but I didn't see him because I was looking at the ground kicking a rock or something. Then all of a sudden, I see some lights in my peripheral vision, so I look up and there is a motor cycle coming right at me and I hurried and moved out of the way and it missed me by a hair!! The person was drunk or something so that was pretty scary!! Yeah this place is crazy, but I love it! 

Well love ya all, 

love Elder Conrow!
