October 21, 2013

So here is my schedule for the next couple of days.
Tuesday I wake up and head directly to the bus station, to ride to Cauayan where I will be interviewed for the last time by my mission president, have a farewell fireside in which I am singing with my batch, have a tie cutting ceremony with my mission president and his wife (they cut elders ties and a piece off of sisters skirts, they plan to make it into a quilt...)
Then Tuesday night we board another bus taking us to Manila, once we arrive we will be able to do a session at the Temple and do some sight seeing. Then Thursday morning I get on a plane to Japan, then to Salt Lake. 
There is more I could say about leaving the mission, but I cant quite put it into an email.
I have fought a good fight.

Hey mom,
Sorry about last week, I was in no mood to write emails, it was hot and all these kids were swearing and screaming in the internet shop.
To answer your question, I do know that Stake President that was killed in a motorcycle accident, both him and his wife where on the bike and they hit a Carabao that was crossing the road. It was a big shock for us. Its weird because those kind of accidents happen all the time here but never to anyone that we know. It was kind of a reality check.
I got that email about that Carl Bloch exhibit, I think that I will be able to appreciate more this time.
Its fine that you opened that package, all those DVDs are in tagalog, that’s how I plan to retain my language skills haha.
there is another package coming I don’t know if I will beat it there or not.
I love you Mom,
Love Elder Proctor

Hello All,
Yep I have been out for over 2 years crazy right. It certainly doesn't feel like it. I hope the Carlos' will be able to come when I speak in sacrament meeting, that would be awesome to see them again. I miss them.
There's not too much to report on this week, I went to my last Zone Conference this week and it was really good. As far as the work goes it is great, we spend plenty of time tracting in the rain, and the people think we are crazy for going out in the rain. Who knows maybe we are a little crazy. I love this work. I really do.
I love all of you
Love Elder Proctor

Hey Everyone,
This week has been great! just so you know we did see some of the typhoon but it was just raining like crazy for a week and then it stopped right after I bought an umbrella. The work is going great, we are finding a lot of new investigators mostly just through tracting because that is about all we can do, we cant get the members to give us referrals so we do what we can and then some. I love the mission, Its cool to be back in my first area, it makes me think a lot about how I have changed since then, about who I was and who I am now. This really is a gospel of change, when we live it fully it will change us and make us more like Christ.
I love this work
I love you all.
Love Elder Proctor

Wow I cant believe that Jordan is coming here! Too bad we couldn't overlap.
I found out earlier today that I am going to be transferred so I will be in my next area for 6 weeks. That's crazy to think about, I don’t like to.
This week has been great we have continued to teach Sanie, and we started teaching his nephew, It wont be long till his whole family is baptized, he is such a good influence on them all. Things are also going a lot better with the ward leaders, they are helping out a lot more than they used to. I love this work.
I love all of you

Hey Mom,

I already sent an email to Dad about Sanie's baptism with pictures. As for teaching him about the resurrection, it was great, after we taught him he just said simply "I believe that’s true"
About how I got an extra month added on, When the new wave of missionaries hit, they changed the MTC schedule and that also effected the transfers here so we were basically given the choice of going home 3 weeks early or 3 weeks late. My batch and I chose to go with 3 more weeks.
As for the singles ward, I don’t want to go there that much at all. but what ever.
I love you mom, thanks for everything

This is Sanie, he was baptized this Saturday. He is a humble man and he has the greatest attitude towards life. he asked me to baptize him to do so I had to carry him into the font, even though I was holding his crippled body I felt like the weaker of the two of us. It made me think of the scripture "Inasmuch as ye have done unto the least of them, ye have done it unto me" After he was baptized he bore a powerfully simple testimony. He says his only desire now is to help get his family to come to church. I love this work. Love Elder Proctor

This has been a great week, we moved up Brother Sanie's baptism to the 31 of August because he is progressing so well and that day worked better for him and his family. He had his baptismal interview yesterday and our district leader told us how in the interview Sanie was talking about getting his family to join the church. He is a great guy, he has such a great attitude towards life. This week we are going to teach him about resurrection, and how his body will be made whole through the Atonement of Christ. I cant wait to see his reaction.
I love this work.
I love all of you.
