Here is an Joshua's email.   Our grandpa Jess passed away Sunday@ 5:25pm.  He is free from a body that hurts and one that was forgetting, could not see or hear well.  We are going to miss his wonderful sense of humor and his love. 

As Always, Valorie

Mark-ian's parrents are not members but his grandmothers is a member. They live along side of a huge rice field and mountains it is pinikamaganda here. very very beautiful. when we go to his house to teach all of his little friends come and sit with us to learn.  they live in a cinder block house with cement floor. sooo when we teach we sit on the ground and teach. All of Mark-ian's  friend know how to pray.   well it is really cool. we have a handful of investigators .   there is lots lots more,, but i have three elders telling me I'm being slow.. thank you for the news about g-g-pa.  I will, maybe have a different email next week. still send e-mails.  everyone send e-mails. the language is coming slow but it is coming, i have a senior day this week so I will need to talk first.
