Island of Mindoro

Kamusta Everybody,

 This past week has great but a little hectic. First of all, I got called to be a district leader so I got transferred to Mindoro, one of the islands in the mission. Tuesday I said good bye to many of the members and investigators and then also got all of my things packed up. Then Wednesday I traveled all day. Lopez, my last area is on one side of the Country and then Mindoro is on the other side. We had to go to the Port in Batangas and then take a boat out to the island. 
 My new companion is Elder Cordova and he doesn't speak any English. So in the course of the next several weeks my Tagalog is going to significantly improve. Hopefully!
 The area here is really pretty.  There are only a few members so we are just a group. Our meeting house is a rented building that is super small but the members have made it look really nice on the inside. All of the members here are really friendly and doing good missionary work. They want to convert their friends and eventually become a branch.
 We also have bikes here which is fun but kind of a pain in the butt. The Elder who used it before me was a larger person so I have spent the past several days fixing it up.
 Thats about all for this week. I hope everyone has a great week.
  Mahal Kita,
     Elder Merrill
