Week 16

Week 16  7/1/13

**Sorry for the late post we were on vacation....

So for my news this week something very exciting happened on Saturday; we had a Tropical Storm come in and that was gnarly! We were told to stay indoors and at first all it was just a little rain. Then I was just sitting studying some stuff and I looked outside and I had been air drying my clothes than WHAM my clothes went flying on the line and it just poured like there was no tomorrow seriously felt like i was in hurricane Katrina thats how hard the wind was blowing!   That went on from 8:00 in the morning to about 2:00 the next morning and then a little into the next day. 
My 1st Tropical Storm

The fun part was when we had to buy food at the gardeners market, there was no one there and yeah I got rained on a little but luckily I had my yellow rain jacket that I found at our house. It kept me dry on my back, but the jacket is made for a Filipino so it didn't exactly fit very well hahaha. But it was funny seeing all these people give me the double take when I was walking down the street in this bright yellow jacket . I dont care, I'll most likely never see them again. It was so weird when I was walking down the street I saw this guy wearing a Fountain Valley High School boys soccer jacket and yeah that just made me laugh to see it. I'm a 10000 miles away but yet there's still stuff from home following me!

I also went on exchanges this week with our Zone Leaders again and that was good. We were able to find some potential investigators in the area. Our Mission President and his wife finally left and we get a new Mission President and the Naga Mission and the Legaspi Mission have officially split. I will travel this friday to meet the new president and his wife in Naga,  so I am looking forward to that. I was able to see the church missionary broadcast last Sunday and that was great hearing form our Prophet and the Apostles.  After listening to that you can't help but re-rebooted. This morning we went to Iriga and played some basketball with our Zone Leaders and some other Elders form the other district. After we got mang inasal (all you can eat rice). 
Just messin around

I just want to say congratulations to my sister for being an  International  dance champion!   She was in Las Vegas and danced at Thunderstruck Nationals. She definitely worked her tail off and she deserves this great honor. She competed out of 40 something dancers in her solo age and she was first overall so Big congratulations to her. I only wish that I could have seen you dance, Abby.
Shout out to my sister

Also want to say Happy 4th of July to all those in America. Going to miss gong to the park and watching the fireworks. However, I did see a sign that said fire works for sale. and we also have a ladder that we can put on the balcony that goes up to the roof. So there are some possibilities this week.hahaha. 

So thats it I think. Can't wait to see my last zone and my old companion this Friday when we  meet the new president. This week its a good one, stay cool California I know I'm not. And thank you for all the support!

  This is Elder Llorens signing off; till next time, stay classy California.
