Hey family. Well shoot, sorry Mom I just don't what to say about how raspberries you have coming out of your ears! And just so you know you didn't ask me a single question! Thats cool that dad got a new motorcycle. What does it look like? And when you say old, how old do you mean? His other one was pretty ancient! I'm glad you had a good time in D.C. When I get home I'd like to go visit all my siblings, but I'm afraid I won't have the time or money, since I start school again a month after I get back! Things have been going well here. We got the news though that 2 missionaries here in Kabankalan are being pulled out, cause apparently the mission has a shortage of missionaries right now. Right now there are 4 of us assigned here, so there will only be two left, but we won't know until tomorrow who is transferring and who is staying. Our work this week was made a little difficult this week with the ridiculous amounts of rain we got. Some places were flooded. Not too bad, the worst I saw was about up to the knees. One of the members died this week and I was asked to speak at her funeral! Don't ask me why, cause I wasn't even particularly close to her, but I spoke nonetheless. She was only baptized about two months ago. And I'm not joking when I say she looked like she just came out of a concentration camp, but she still came to church every sunday even though she was sick. It was a nice service. Funerals here are a little different though. And then the "burial" isn't really a burial cause they don't put 'em in the ground, they just put them in a cement box. But yeah it was good. OK well I gotta go, thanks for all the love and everything else. Love, Greg
