I can't believe February will be done in just couple days. This transfer has gone by incredibly fast. Time is just flying by. I can't believe it, but teaching incredible people and families has made it so incredibly rewarding. I am sorry to be writing you guys a little late. It's the last week of the month, so we have monthly zone reporting again. (Sakit sa ulo talaga yung monthly reporting sa akin. Pampihira.) We also have Zone Leader's Conference tomorrow, so Elder Talento's now here with us and we'll travel to Tarlac together tomorrow. We also have a Family Home Evening later tonight, so that should be really fun.

We had another really awesome experience this week. Elder Donald L. Hallstrom of the Presidency of the Seventy presided at our stake conference this weekend. That may be the only time the people here will personally see a leader of the LDS Church in their lifetime, so he blessed the lives of everyone that attended. I remember him speaking at the MTC when I was there and later in April 2012 General Conference. I got to shake his hand, which was cool. He's a very big man, about 6'4 and over 200 lbs. When I shook his wife's hand, she asked: "How are you, Elder?" I responded: "Great!" And then she punched me in the arm and said: "That's great!" That caught me a little off guard. She's also very tall (about 5'10), so they probably have some very tall children. Stake conference was great and the speakers (including Elder Hallstrom), did a very good job. We loved it.
Well, I have to get busy with our Zone Monthly Reporting. Wish me luck (and also that my head doesn't explode). I love you all! Mahal ko kayo!! I'm glad that everyone had a great week. It is always the best thing in the world to receive letters from you. I am truly blessed with a wonderful family. The Church is true, and I am blessed to be in a family that taught me so well.
