August 31, 2014 email

hey well i had a good week nothing out of the ordinary, but it was good we are still working hard and trying to get all of our investigators to baptism. we have alot showing up to church but they all have some little things to take care of but the harvest should start this month so that will be good here. Lately we have only found a few new people to teach, but they are all priesthood potentials so that is really good and different for a change. we have one guy that is so smart and is really investigating the church he truly wants to know the truth so it is really fun to teach him. We are just starting another transfer right now so i have at least one more here i will finish up training elder brown. he is doing good and starting to really enjoy the work. We will just keep working hard and both try and keep our minds off of home. His mind goes back and i try not to let mine go forward. but i love the work and am so gratefull for this oppurtunity to serve here. I love the people and my mission and i know this is the true church. Hope your all doing well i love you all thanks for everything.

Letter August 2014

Family hey how are you all doing. I hope your all doing alright. It's harvest time now so thats always fun. I sure miss that time back home. From the emails and letters it sounds like it will be a rough crop for people everywhere there so thats no good. We all know that things will work out and there is a plan for everything that happens. Even if it sets us back a little. It will give all the farmers something to talk about all winter long. As for me I am doing really good. Just coming to the close of another transfer soon. Busy as ever. The time is really flying by now. I am still training and its good. Elder Brown is starting to enjoy the mission. Reminds me of when I was new and didn't really want to be here then that all goes away and then you start to enjoy it. Then before you know it is over and your getting ready to go home. I am in the city of Marikina. The shoe capital but its an alright city. Cleaner than most cities here but still not clean. Our ward isn't the strongest but they try. We had 10 investigators at church last week and a few less actives showed up as well. We are hoping to have two baptisms on August 30th and then about 3 in September. Thats what we want. Everything seems to be on track so I think we can get them so things are going good. We have a really fun zone. I like a lot of the Elders here right now. It is weird that I am the oldest out of all of them but 1 other Elder. They are all good guys though so we have a lot of fun. We go play basketball every p-day. Yeah that is what I have been up to for the last little while. Sorry for the lack of letters lately. Just busy and there isn't a way for me to send them to you only every once in a while but I will try and keep you all up to date on how stuff is going. Thanks for all that you are doing and remember that all things come to pass even the trials. It's the pattern in the Book of Mormon. Thanks!! Love you all Love Elder Robison

Email 8/17/14

Hey everyone how are you all doing. I will just write a short little letter to you all and let you know how I have been doing. We have been trying to stay busy with the work, but this week seemed like everywhere we went no one was home or they were sick or busy. It was all good though thats part of the great work that we are apart of. I am still here in Marikina and we had a great miracle happen this week with these two guys we  got to contact. We were out looking for a refferal, but the address was wrong so we were lost and then a member that works for the church pulled over and asked us if we had contacted these people. We said no we dont  know who they are. They kinda got lost in the white wash. There was no record of them and so he said that they visited them once and that was it. He said can I take you to show you their house and we said yeah. Turns out two guys very interested and they both have families. So we were very luck to meet them and we will start teaching them now and hopefully it will go well for us. So that was the best part to our week nothing to crazy but it was good. Thank you all for everything I love you guys.
Love Elder Robison
