8-1-15 Don't ever neglect prayer

Magandang umaga mom!


Awesome! Actually I do have some things I want. Can you send over my black elastic sweatpants? It has white lines going down the sides and small zippers on the bottoms. And the fabric is almost like the extra support garments. So that, a jeans, my quiksilver hat, and pictures? Pictures of like the family, temple, grandparents, stuff like that. I think that's it for now, but I'll let you know if I need something else. You can also send me a surf shorts too in case I like swim in the Philippines ;) 


Oh and please thank Uncle Keenan guys and Aunty Lani them! They sent me a bunch of ono snacks! The elders in my district got a bunch of snacks too, so the table in our room is covered with all kine stuff haha. And uncle Keenan sent me one of his CDs! I can't listen to it here, so I reaaally hope I can listen to it in the Philippines somehow. I was so excited when I saw it though! I've been thinking about it for some reason for a few days before I got it. Anyway, tell them I said thank you so much please! 


I also met Elder Damuni just this morning! We sat next to some elders at breakfast and I asked where they were going. From there we started talking story and he said he was from Maui, went to Kamehameha school, and is going to Samoa. As he left to dump his plate, I realized he was the boy with the popular dad haha! I remembered watching his video before I left. So on his way back I told him I knew him and I'd tell you guys I met him. So let his parents know he's doing great in the MTC! He's a cool guy.


Sister Alapa is really cool too! She came up to me this week and we talked story for a bit. Are we cousins? Or are you and her parents just really close?


Anyway, I'm so glad that you and everyone else are doing okay. Thank you so much for putting so much time into me and our family, even though it meant neglecting your schoolwork. I'm so grateful for you mom. Man I miss Jeremias sooo much! And it's so funny that Fia doesn't smile as much like U'i (it's almost like karma hahaha). 


Alright, I still have to reply to dad's email too. Elder Bice is almost ready to go. I'm so glad you guys remember to write me haha. I remember thinking it wouldn't be anything special to write you guys or have you guys write me while I'm out here. So thank you guys so much. And I'll say this is my email to dad too, but I am so proud of Ohu! It's amazing that he's working so hard so he can serve his mission. And that would be so sick if he got called to a spanish-speaking mission or something haha. Let him know that he's such a great example to me and that he'll be so prepared to come out here from working to being a [Sunday school] teacher, it's crazy. Knowing he's doing well makes me so happy. Tell him I love him. And I love everyone else. How's Kala'i doing? How was the orientation? Still doing football? And I'm glad Hali'a is doing great, and Herb too. Oh and tell uncle BJ I said salamat! I'm so grateful I had people help me with the language before coming out here.

 Okay, last thing. I want to know where Hamblyn is going on his mission! Either let me know or give him my email please! Let him know that I miss him!


Thanks so much mom! Mahal ko po kayo!

Kumusta dad!

Thanks for the emails! It's so nice to hear that everyone is doing okay. Can you give me Herb's email please? His emails come in the mail but they don't show up on here, so I don't know how to reply to him. But let him know that I do get his emails and I'm so masaya (happy) that he's loving it at BYUH! And it's so sick that he met the elder who hosted me and saw Ammon them! Man I can't get over how proud I am of Ohu. He's such a great example to me and his other siblings. And huge props for wanting to teach in sundays! We teach so much here in the MTC, so he's going to be so far ahead of so many people here. And I don't want to be one of those "READ FROM PMG" guys, but if he ever needs help or is at a block when preparing a lesson, the PMG (Preach My Gospel Manual) is a huge help. And don't ever neglect prayer and asking for revelation and help from the Holy Ghost. I know that he will receive those things as long as he asks for them. Alam ko po na totoo ang simbahan. Salita ng Diyos ang Aklat ni Mormon. Alam ko po na mga propeta ng Diyos sina Joseph Smith at Thomas S. Monson. Mahal ko ang simbahan at mahal ko ang ebanghelyo ni Jesucristo. Nagpapasalamat po ako para kay Jesucristo at sa Kanyang Pagbabayad-sala. Sa pamamagitan ng Pagbabayad-sala, puwede po tayong bumalik sa Ama natin sa langit. Mahal ko po kayo, dad! Miss you guys! I hope the whole business thing works out. Thanks for the emails dad! Love you guys!



Brahhhh that video is so sick Lehia! I couldn't stop watching it! A small group of my friends came to watch it too. You're so good! Man I can't get over how sick that video is. Elder Warren says you're a little stud haha. That's sick that you guys were charging gainers! You'll get it down in no time. Man I'm so stoked to come home and learn everything all over again from you! But remember, the gospel is the most important thing. I love that you're reading the Book of Mormon. Eh and Maligayang Bati! Happy birthday! I'm glad you got to go out and surf and watch movies for your birthday. How was Pixels? Oh and you can keep my BK hat as a birthday gift. K love you bro! Send more vids! You guys are in my prayers too!
