Kamusta Everybody,
 This past week has gone well! My new companion is great and we have been finding lots of success. 
 We have found some new investigators through some of the less active members in the group here. One of them named Judith is awesome, she is really excited about the gospel and wants to be baptized. Her friend came to visit her this past weekend for her birthday and Judith invited us over so that we could teach her too. 
 On Thursday we had to go to Calapan so that I could get a picture taken for the government here. We went to this mall type place and there were a lot of white people there. All of them avoided us and did not want to talk to me or any of the other American elders. There are a lot of old men who come here and marry really young Filipinos. Most people call them dirty joes. The other day one of the American elders in my District yelled at one of them "Hey Joe!" The guy was really confused when he saw that another white guy had yelled at him but his wife laughed.
 Our area is really starting to pick up and I am excited to start getting some baptisms here. We have one coming up this Saturday that should go well.  I hope everyone has a great week and is doing well. 
  Mahal Kita
