Carved Pearl Shells

Hello mother how are you?? Seems like you had a solid week this week with all of your basball and family coming down to visit! 

What does the temple reccomend holder look like?? And what is in the package that you sent to me just barly? 

Make sure you send it by air cause he goes home the first week of April!! So make sure it gets here before it goes home! 

I bought some souvineers today for the house I guess.. They are way cool carved pearl shells!! I guess you will have to wait and see them when I get home.. Also did you guys like the package I sent a while ago?.. I heard nothing from tan and dad.. they must not have liked it..

YES MASTER HOWELL HAHAHA! Thats crazy that you are already almost done with school!! Time flies doesnt it!!

When is the starting day for Dixie?.. And when do you need to know by?.. Just curious.

Any ways we had a great week here haha! Dont really know what else to tell you guys about other than the fact that things are going really good and I am enjoying it really well here!! 

Our area is probs the best Zone Leader area in the whole mission ahah.. I dont know if thats true but I bet it could be.. 

Any ways love you mom!!

love jack

Solid Turn out for Sunday

Hello!! How goes it with you guys!! Looks like you had a nice celebration for dads birhtday! I hope you guys enjoyed the video that me and my awesome comp put together!
Also just a request.. Could you send a cool temple recommend holder for my companion, he would like one and I would love to give him one! So yaaaa.
But yeah this week was dope, we are doing sooo good here in our area and my comp is freaking cool! We are best friends and we get a long so well! I love it and we are working super hard as well!
We had a solid turn out for sunday services, we had 10 investiagors and 12 LA at church, with a upcoming family baptism at the last week of February! So we are stoked for that!
WE find like crazy!! We get so many new investigators a week, last week I think we got around 25, crazy good numbers I love talking to people its just so much fun and its so easy for a tall white kid speaking Tagalog to get the attention of people! Its my favorite thing ahah!
Temple pday was amazing! It had been so long since I had a temple pday, cause in my last area there is none cause it so far haha, so I was defiantly soaking in the temple vibes today!
Also yesterday we had Zone training and we gave a workshop at in for our zone about "our purpose" it went way good, thats another thing I love is just speaking infront of people, before I hated it! haha not any more haha!
Work is going super awesome and I am having so much fun as a ZL!
Oh funny story!! Yesterday we were walking to the chapel in Novaliches and remember that in the city is more poverished and there is a lot of people that live on streets and its sad and dirty.
So yesterday I saw about an 80 year old lady and a 12 year old kid fighting over card board that they used to sleep on.. It got so bad that the old lady had to bite the kid to get her precious card board bed..
It was really sad to see this that they were fighting over something worthless to us but to the lady it meant a lot cause thats all she had.
We need to be grateful for what we have and our situations.
Well love you guys!!
Love elder Howell
