Hot Holy Week

April 20

Kamusta Everybody!
 This week has been a little different because of Holy Week.  We’ve had a tough time teaching people because they were all at the beach so we only found one member at home to work with us and we could only find one investigator at home. We helped the investigator cook and wrap sweet peanuts( like peanut brittle) for a few hours and then taught them a good lesson. We also haven't slept very well this week because behind our house and down the street there is a huge church that has a giant speaker system and it has been playing really, really loud bible readings 24 hours a day. I don’t even think anyone understands what they are saying… they kinda sing the bible in Tagalog but it just sounds like loud noise. 
 I also had a really funny conversation with Elder Abekoon this past week. He is from Shri Lanka and we were talking about life before our missions. I was telling him about the jobs I’ve had before and he told us that before his mission he would hijack cars! He told me all about how they would first change the dashboard and then give it a new paint job in another town. We all looked a little shocked and he laughed saying "just kidding"". Then kinda quietly he said "but its true.." We have been laughing about that conversation all week. 
 We also found one great investigator named Lance. He is 15 and is really ready for the gospel! After the first lesson he read all of 1st Nephi. He’s has been coming to church every week and always has really good questions about what he is reading.
 Other than that not much exciting is going one. I hope everyone had a good Easter.

P.S. Here is a picture of the beach…Enjoy :)
