October 21, 2014


Sorry I don't have a lot time but I promise I'll email a longer message next week. So much has happened. We had our first baptism as a companionship and it's only my first cycle! Her name is Sister Unica Borja and she's in a part member family. Elder T baptized her and I confirmed her during sacrament meeting at church. I can't express in words of how nervous I was, but it was one of the most spiritual moments of my life. I have no idea what I was going to say before and I don't remember what I said during the blessing. But I'm so grateful for the Spirit and the Priesthood. Elder T and I are teaching so many lessons and are leading the zone. Elder T is an awesome trainer and is pushing me to be better. My Tagalog is coming hahaha at least I hope so. I love y'all and you're in my prayers every night. I hope everything is going okay with school, wrestling, work, ect. I love and miss you all.

Your Valiant Missionary,

Elder Strader

P.S. - Here are some pictures! A lady we teach has a pet monkey but it has rabies and bites people. There's this little girl who act's just like Emyrie and it makes me sad. I showed her a picture of Emyrie and she loved it. I use my photo album a lot in lessons especially when we talked about families can be together forever. It's beautiful here. I wish I could take more pictures but it's really rude to take a picture during a lesson. And here's a really weird looking fruit, that is the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. I'm loving it here!
