April 14

Kamusta Everybody,
 This past week has gone really well. We’ve had a lot of meetings but we were still able to do some good work in our area. My email is a day late because we had zone interviews yesterday so our P-Day was switched. 
 On Tuesday we went on exchanges with Batangas 1. Both of the elders there are famous in their area because they are super tall 6'3 and 6'7.  I worked with Elder Richards who is 6'7 and we had quite the day. We talked to one guy who spoke good English and seemed interested but then he said "actually I am a little drunk at the moment so you better just come back tomorrow and teach me and then he said to Elder Richards.. “I think you are taller than Kobe". We both got a laugh and were impressed by how well he could speak English, even while drunk.
 We also had a zone training meeting Wednesday but it was so hot in the chapel that people were having trouble focusing. So yesterday instead we decided to hold it in a different chapel with AC. It is amazing the difference the temperature makes on peoples attitudes! Yesterday they were all much more awake and participated really well. We have been discussing and working on helping people get to church.  It was sad also that it was the last meeting that we will have as a zone with President Peterson. He goes home in June and we are all anticipating trying to adjust to a new mission president. 
 Other than that not much is happening! I hope everyone has a great Easter. Here is a link to an amazing video about Easter.
