Hellooo :)

Hello everyone!
   Wow this week has gone by fast! It is weird that it is already October. It's weird when you put it that way, I am 1/6th of the way through my mission...
   And this week is general conference! Woohoo! I can hardly wait to listen to all the talks! It sounds like you all are having fun, and staying alive. That's good. Haha. Yes I did receive the sheet music, thank you! I love them. I haven't had a ton of time to play them, but that's alright. And the photobucket works great! I really enjoyed all the pictures. You got some great shots!
   So this week has been good. We started off with some great days full of lessons, but soon they started falling through left and right. So in order to combat this bad luck, we went to visit less-actives! So our week of lessons, turned into a week full of lessons with less-actives. Which is not a bad thing at all, just different.
   So that was the beginning of the week and then on Saturday there was a stake cultural dance activity. So all the members did traditional dances from their home country. There were dances from Italy, Philippines, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Bolivia. It was really cool! I loved watching all the different styles of dances from the different regions. And then afterwards, we had food from each country. It was delicious!
   I am starting to like these people more and more everyday. It helps that I can kind of understand them now, But there is still a lot I don't pick up on. That is one thing I have been praying for a lot more lately. For charity. I am not one to go out of my way to talk to people, and I don't have a lot to say, so I have been working on being more open, and talking with people. And slowly, I think I am opening up. It still takes a lot of effort, but It is getting easier.
   There is not much more to say. The work is moving forward, and so am I. When I keep busy, I have a better attitude. The days that I am frustrated are the days where I feel I didn't accomplish much. Thank you for the packages. I will let you know If I get them. Haha Usually someone from our group goes there every week, and we are supposed to drop some stuff off there tomorrow I believe.
   Oh! I almost forgot. What part of the Philippines did you go to? I have been meaning to ask but I keep forgetting.
   Alright well I love you all and pray for you everyday. Tell Cody I love him, and that I say hi. Haha. Hope you all are having a good day. Talk to you next week.
   Love always, Anziano Rigby
