22 May 2016

Well, this week has been pretty long. A lot of stuff happened! The problem is, I can't remember most of it. Here it goes anyway:

Last p-day, after I emailed, we went out to a mall to do some shopping. They had a certain restaurant, Zarqs burger. Sounds interesting, right? All the crew members were wearing t-shirts that read "The Greasier, the Better". Yeah, that's my kind of place. We ate a ton there. They had a challenge: eat a massive burger and a pound of fries in five minutes, and it's free. 3 of the elders took it on, and one of them even made it! That was pretty impressive; the burger was huge. I had one without the challenge, and nearly couldn't finish it. 

As a sidenote, the food here is pretty strange sometimes. I've had barbecued pig kidneys, boiled chicken feet, chicken liver adobo, and quite a few other "delicacies." You can find a lot of American food here...thank goodness! I've already had a Big Mac, and a couple other good things from back home. 

Anyway, we had district meeting early on Tuesday. Apparently, it's held at 9 am in this mission. Not too much else happened, though. On Wednesday, I got picked up by the APs to sign some paperwork for Immigration. That's another quirk of this mission: the APs have their own car. Lucky! 

We had 2 Family Home Evenings this week: one on Saturday, and one on Sunday. I'm not sure why, but they were great. The first one was with the family that we baptized last week, and the second was with a group of members. I had the lesson for the second one, but only learned about it two minutes in advance. I needed to come up with an object lesson, but couldn't think of I used a card trick. I did relate it to the gospel, and it went really well.

At church on Sunday, our converts were confirmed, and one of them got the priesthood! That's always exciting. Unfortunately, that's all the news for the week. Here's some pictures. These are all just random pictures of parts of Quezon City.
