Zone activity in Magsaysay

Wednesday, October 27, 2004

Today has been a very long day. We slept in the San Jose apartment last night and got eaten alive by mosquitos! First thing this morning we went and emailed. That is always good. I love hearing from my family. We also went grocery shopping for this week. We decided that we’re not going to drink any juice because we’re getting fat. We’re going to try it for a week and see what happens. The whole zone left at about 12:00 to go to the zone activity over by Magsaysay. We went out to a beach and played hand-ball. It’s like ultimate Frisbee but you use a football instead. It was great fun and the ocean was absolutely great! The only problem was that it was way too hot and my feet got sunburned really badly. It really hurt when I put shoes and socks back on. Hopefully they’ll be better tomorrow. We didn’t get back to our area until late because we worked too long on getting an MP3 CD made with a lot of songs on it. Elder Cox bought a MP3 CD, and VCD player yesterday. It is really nice. It’s actually only the size of a little Walkman CD player and so it’s really portable and should be great for using videos in our proselyting. The good news for today is that Nanay Tardio is back at home. She ended up losing the baby which is obviously hard, but she seems to be doing ok. We got to meet a lot more of the Tardio family today because the older children were there visiting from Sablayan.
