Don't have really anything much to say because I just wrote you on Wednesday but the area is good. It's just making me work really hard with almost very little results.  We did eat at a street stand the other day and found a family who seemed interested in what we had to say.  We went to their house yesterday and taught almost the whole family except for their brother and he was the only one who read the pamphlet we gave them.  When the lesson was over and we were about to leave their house their brother shows up and talks to us.  Turns out he's fluent in Pakistani language and so is Elder H.  They talked for a while and Elder H was probably the happiest I've ever seen him.  I can't remember what he said his name was but he really seems interested and Nay told us he was waiting for us to come and was kind of sad he didn't get to hear our message.

The area is really awesome and some families in the area really make it a good area. The Valdez family and the Bayatan family really make the area great.  The people here really love the Elders and it makes the area easier.  
Even though it's pretty hard right now I am learning a lot.  

So my comp comes from a family of 5.  2 sisters and him.  Only him and his youngest sister are members of the church.  Everyone in his family is a christian but of the Catholic church.  They live in a designated area
Birthday party for Sister Lori(middle)

for Christians and if they leave that designated area they might get hurt.  He doesn't know Tagalog because he has never studied it and doesn't want to learn it.   He doesn't know any other Filipino language.  He knows all the middle east languages though.  He said he knows 7 languages.

Sorry it's really short but next week will be better.  Love you guys!
