Letter May 5-11, 2014

Family hey how are you all doing.  Probably really busy other than I believe that mom went on a cruise last week so maybe not to busy.  The spuds should be about in the ground now just have to get them to grow.  When I watch the way they farm here it amazes me the difference.  I don't think any of us would complain ever again about having to go to work.  They are in the fields all day picking by hand for about 100-200 pesos about $2-5 and thats their life.  They just keep going.  Very few people have tractors just the few rich people.  It really makes it hard for us too because alot of them are out in the fields.  Its alright we will find a way.  So on Monday we didn't have p--day just a regular day of work.  We went out had a good day not alot happened actually just went finding all day.  Tuesday was our p-day.  We emailed and just the regular then came and hung out at the house.  Every p-day we eat at this mexcian place.  Its pretty good.  It is random there is a mexcian food place here.  It helps give a change to the food so Wednesday had a good day.  Apolo introduced us to some of his friends but two of them punted us and he felt really bad about it.  We ended up teaching about 5 lessons that day.  I wish we could just get people to progress none of them want to do anything.  Thursday we ahd a good morning with 3 lessons before lunch.  The rest of the day not another lesson all day.  We had a FHE for a kid in the branch that is leaving on a mission.  Friday had a rough morning no lessons then we had lunch.  Then weekly planning after that we had another meeting with all the missionaries in the branch.  We do that every Friday to coordinate what will happen that week.  The meeting gets over at like 5 then back to work.  We did meet two new girls to teach they were friends of Apolo.  Apolo said next time don't hide cause it hurts if you do.  He is really funny and blunt.  Saturday we had our national day of service.  We went and cleaned up a Mongon school.  They are the native people that still wear loin cloths.  It was fun though.  I love to do service projects.  We got back at two had lunch rested for a bit and then went back to work.  All we got was one lesson in.   Sunday we had church two random investigators showed up to church so that was good.  We had training for the branch missionaries then Apolo came and worked with me and JR with my comp.  Apolo is in a wheelchair so I pushed him around to all the appointment.  People really stare at a white guy pushing a special Filipino around.  He is really funny.  So that was my week nothing crazy.  We got some good service in and what not.  Hopefully we can get those two people that showed up to church progressing.  Well hope your all doing well.  Thanks for everything have a good week.  Love you all.  Love Elder Robison
